BMW says the K1300R produces @ 9,250 rpm and torque @ 8,250 rpm from its inline-four engine. The engine was subtly modified by British company Ricardo plc. It has an exhaust butterfly flap to boost torque and improve exhaust note. The K1300R features BMW's optional ESA-II electronic suspension adjustment. The bike also has a conventional indicator switch instead of the usual BMW three button configuration.

In tests carried out by Bike Magazine in the UK, its 2.81 second time made it the fastest accelerating naked motorcycle, beating its next closest competitor, the Suzuki B-King, by one tenth of a second.
