BMW Motorrand’s high performance line has just received a new model, meant to redefine awesomeness on two wheels. Dubbed the BMW HP4, the bike is powered by a tweaked version of the 1000 cc 4-cylinder found in the BMW S 1000 RR. Other new features include torque-adjusting Launch Control system, and standard active, electrically-actuated Dynamic Damping Control.
Weighing only 371.8 lbs (with an empty tank), this is said to be the lightest 4-cylinder super sport bike in its class. With a titanium exhaust, lightweight forged wheels, and new lighter sprocket carrier and battery, the remarkably low weight is no surprise. Other appealing features include an updated 4-mode Race ABS system, Launch Control, shift assistant for better gear changes, and Brembo monoblock brake calipers.
The quite remarkable performance figures are: 193 horsepower and 82 lb-ft of torque, just like in the S 1000 RR. Adrenaline addicts, however, will be very happy to learn that there is also a competition package available for them. They can also order a passenger seat if they like to share the thrills of crazy (yet responsible) riding.
