Another great example of the prowess of BMW Motorrad’s commitment to fine machines and speed lies within the angular lines of their new limited edition HP4 RACE Superbike ($TBA). This also marks their first production bike that has had the main frame constructed entirely from carbon fiber.
Between the carbon fiber monocoque and self-supporting rear with three-stage height adjustment sitting atop carbon fiber wheels, the HP4 has a curb weight of only 377 pounds. The metal bearing mounts and bolting points are integrated directly into the carbon as it is formed. Its engine is capable of cranking out 215 horsepower with 88.5 pound-feet of torque, and is paired with a 6‑speed close-ratio racing gearbox to rev to 14,500 rpm.
Other sweet features on this track-ready racer are the Brembo GP4 PR monoblock brake calipers, dynamic traction control, wheelie and launch controls, and an Öhlins FGR 300 upside-down fork. The new HP4 superbike is being limited to only 750 individually handcrafted machines.
