BMW Motorrad has unveiled its new BMW HP4, it’s the lightest four-cylinder supersports bike in the 1000cc class to date. The HP4 is the latest model in BMW’s HP series which includes the HP2 Enduro, HP2 Megamoto and the HP2 Sport. The HP4 is based on the magnificent BMW S1000RR and produces a hefty 193hp and weighs just 199 kilograms. The new HP4 comes fitted with Race ABS and Dynamic Traction Control ready to take to the track. As on the S1000 RR the HP4 has four different riding modes, Rain, Sport, Race and Slick. Also fitted as standard is Dynamic Damping Control, the damping is adapted to the current manoeuvre or road surface by means of sensor-supplied parameters via electrically controlled regulation valves. BMW has reduced weight across a number of areas, the new 7-spoke forged alloy wheels and sprocket carrier have a 2.4kg weight reduction compared to the RR. The HP4’s exhaust system has been manufactured from titanium which saves as much as 4.5 kilograms compared to the RR. There’s an optional Competition Package available with the HP4, this includes refined HP carbon parts including a long, closed HP engine spoiler in carbon, an adjustable HP rider footrest system, folding HP brake and clutch levers, wheels finished in Racing blue metallic and a sponsor sticker kit provide additional enhancement of the new HP4. We look forward to testing this new BMW HP4 on track shortly.
