BMW HP4 Race

Individually crafted high-tech and innovation for top performance on the race trackTechnical solutions for maximum performance on the race track have always been the hallmark of hand-picked factory racing motorcycles. With the new HP4 Race, BMW Motorrad presents a racing bike in a production run of 750. It is individually crafted by a small, highly specialised team, ensuring a high level of quality.

In terms of engine, electronics and spring elements, the new HP4 Race is in the same category as current superbike factory racing machines, even surpassing this level in the area of suspension with its carbon fibre frame. Weighing 171 kilograms when fully fuelled and road ready, the new HP4 Race is lighter than the factory racing bikes currently used in the Superbike World Championship and is slightly above the MotoGP factory racers in terms of weight.

The RTM fully carbon frame - maximum rigidity with optimum flex and torsion.

With the HP4 RACE, BMW Motorrad presents a main frame made entirely of carbon fibre and weighing just 7.8 kilograms that is produced industrially in small series, thereby making this future-oriented technology available for anyone to purchase. The front and rear wheel are also made of this high-tech material, enabling a weight reduction of approximately 30 per cent as compared to light alloy forged wheels while retaining a deliberately rigid design.

The fully carbon rear wheel rim stays flexible in every extreme situation.
