Come for a ride with Peter Hickman on the awesome BMW HP4 Race at the Isle of Man TT

The 2017 Isle of Man TT marked the emergence of a new star, as Peter Hickman took a sensational five podiums in the Superbike, Superstock, Supersport, Lightweight and Senior TTs.

During TT fortnight, Hickman had use of one of the most delectable racing motorcycles ever created, the carbon-fiber framed BMW HP4 Race.

And he used it to great effect, very nearly winning the Superbike TT to fellow BMW rider Ian Hutchinson.

BMW Motorrad UK took Peter’s HP4 Race and loaded it up with cameras to give you one of the most in depth views ever created on the Isle of Man. This video is full HD, with all the glorious sound and blurring color you get from taking a 210hp WorldSBK-spec racer by the scruff of its neck and riding it to within an inch of its life. The BMW pops on the traction control and rev limiter, wheelies, backs into corners, lays black lines out of them—this truly is a brilliant video.

Give this video full screen, full sound, and revel in the sheer skill of not just Peter Hickman but every rider who takes to the treacherous but iconic Isle of Man TT course.
