Hy­per Per­for­mance 4

Bike India - - IGNITION -

BMW MOTORRAD HAVE LAUNCHED THEIR LAT­EST TRACK TOOL, THE HP4 Race, a per­for­mance mo­tor­cy­cle crafted by a hand­ful of highly skilled crafts­men at BMW Motorrad. The HP4 was an­nounced last year and this year the com­pany has launched the bike in a lim­ited run of just 750.

Be­ing an ex­clu­sive ma­chine, the HP4 comes with a 999-cc, in-line four en­gine that pro­duces a mind-bog­gling 215 PS at 13,900 rpm. The red-line of the bike has also in­creased from 14,200 to 14,500 rpm. BMW have mated this en­gine to a close-ra­tio six-speed gear­box to ex­tract the max­i­mum per­for­mance.

BMW have also in­tro­duced a car­bon-fi­bre frame with mono­coque con­struc­tion and it weighs just 7.8 kg. New light­weight wheels, FGR 300 USD fork and TTX 36 GP rear monoshock, Brembo GP4 PR monobloc cal­lipers with thicker rac­ing steel brakes, car­bon-fi­bre parts, and alu­minium fuel tank are parts that have brought down the weight to just 146 kg, lighter than some WSBK ma­chines. So, if you fancy your­self a road-go­ing ma­chine that is closer to a race bike, then we rec­om­mend you con­tact your near­est BMW show­room ASAP.
