2017 BMW HP4 Race: FIRST LOOK
BMW says its new hand-built HP4 Race is a “purebred racing bike…individually crafted by a small, highly specialized team, ensuring the very highest level of quality.”
The new track-only HP4 Race features an all-carbon fiber chassis—including wheels and subframe—a first for a production motorcycle. The carbon fiber frame weighs just 17.2 pounds! BMW claims that when fully fueled and road ready, it weighs less than the factory BMW racing bike currently being used in the FIM WorldSBK Championship at 377 pounds.
Not only is the new HP4 Race super light but super powerful at a claimed 215 horsepower at 13,900 rpm.
Suspension is handled by an Ohlins FGR 300 USD fork and an Ohlins TTX 36 GP spring strut.
Only 750 units will be produced and will sell for approximately $85,600. CN
