Mein Auto: '06 M Coupe, '08 K12S
Oldish thread, and I guess you've probably got it all figured out by now, but here's my 2 cents. I own an '08 K1200S and I love it. But I have test ridden the K1300S, and I was VERY impressed. Very slight changes in the angles of the bars make her more comfortable in the wrists and arms, the engine feels much smoother (though I didn't feel any noticeable difference in power) and the quick shifter is just brilliant. All said and done, the differences weren't enough to make me switch, but I still remember that test ride fondly every time I see a K13S. Both are brilliant bikes, but the K13S shows a level of refinement the K12S can only envy.
