MCN’s Andy Downes is on the new BMW K1300 launch in Spain with three new bikes being ridden for the first time - the K1300 R naked bike, the faired S and the touring GT model.

He has just stepped off the new BMW K1300S after a 40 mile ride on motorways and some fantastic mountain roads en-route to Ronda, Spain and here’s what he has to say.

‘Initial impressions are it’s as fast as you would expect from a 175bhp bike, it disguises it’s weight well, it’s fast, comfortable and the new ESAII system works brilliantly. More updates later.”
