L’Ecurie shows custom BMW K 1300 S bike

Article by Christian A., on November 20, 2010

French artist Jeremy Taltaud from L’Ecurie has applied matte black paint and carbon fiber to a customized version of the BMW K 1300 S bike.

Every surface of the German sportsbike was covered in matte black paint, while its carbon fiber components and its engine are painted in bright red, creating the vision of a volcano on the verge of erupting.

The bike’s performance is the same. It is still powered by a 1,293cc four-cylinder inline unit that can deliver 175 hp at 9,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 140 Nm (103 lb-ft) at 8,250 rpm.

Over 70% of the engine’s torque is available from only 3,000 rpm. The optimized exhaust system has an Akrapovic sporting slip-on muffler made of titanium.

It features a carbon cover, electronically controlled flap management, and a fully controlled three-way catalytic converter. If you go to your local dealer, you will be offered the K 1300 S in three variants: Light Grey Metallic, Lava Orange Metallic.

Or you can opt for a multi-color job that mixes Granite Grey Metallic and Light Grey Metallic with Magma Red highlights.

The bike is available with an option to give it an ASC (Anti-Spin Control) function that prevents the rear wheel from spinning during acceleration, using the sensors of the motorcycle’s ABS system. In the US, the 2011 BMW K 1300 S is priced at $15,850.
