2018 BMW HP4 Race photo gallery

BMW Motorrad launched its flagship superbike in India, the HP4 Race, earlier this week. Although it is based on the S 1000 RR, the Rs 85 lakh price tag makes HP4 Race almost five times as expensive as the standard bike. We take a look at what makes the BMW HP4 Race worth its salt –

 

The HP4 Race is a homologation special motorcycle developed only for track use, and each bike is hand-built by a special team in Berlin, Germany.

The carbon-fibre frame and wheels and an aluminium fuel tank make the HP4 Race 30 kilograms lighter than the standard S1000RR.

The 2D dashboard has been lifted off the WSBK bike, and gets suspension position sensors, data logging and GPS functionality.

 

It is powered by the same 999cc inline-four engine, although the output has been bumped up to 212bhp and 120Nm of torque.

The engine gets a titanium Akrapovic exhaust system. It is mated to a reverse-pattern six-speed transmission with a bi-directional quick-shifter.

The HP4 Race rides on fully-adjustable Ohlins FGR300 forks up front and an Ohlins TTX 36 GP rear monoshock.

 

It even gets an aluminium Suter swingarm developed with inputs from former factory WSBK riders and quick-release wheels.

 

The HP4 Race gets a race-spec Ohlins steering damper as standard. The riding position is fully adjustable, with eight-stage adjustment for the footpegs and three-stage seat height adjustment.

 

The WSBK-spec brake setup consists of dual 320mm discs up front and a 220mm disc at the rear with Brembo GP4-PR callipers.

The electronic aids include a 15-level traction control, wheelie control, engine brake control, launch control and even a pit lane speed limiter.

Produced in a limited run of just 750 units, it is offered in a unique white/blue paint scheme. Only a handful will be allocated for India.
