This 2018 BMW HP4 Race is a track-specific model and one of only 750 produced worldwide. Based on the S1000RR, the HP4 Race features a 215-horsepower 999cc inline-four mated to a 6-speed EVO gearbox and utilizes carbon fiber for the frame, bodywork, and wheels to achieve a weight of just 377 pounds. Additional features include Ohlins suspension and Brembo GP4 R brakes borrowed from BMW’s World Cup Superbike, as well as a number of on-track rider-assist programs, a 2D data-logging multi-function display, and a titanium Akrapovic exhaust. This HP4 is one of just 79 brought to the US and has reportedly not been ridden. It is now being offered by the dealer to which it was originally delivered in New York City with the original Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin. The bike is finished in white, blue, and red, with the names of component suppliers featured on the lower fairing. Carbon fiber is used extensively, including for the main frame, which weighs in at just 17 pounds and is nearly nine pounds lighter than its aluminum counterpart in the standard RR. Together with the carbon fiber wheels, a self-support fairing, and adjustable single-piece composite tail section, the bike has a road-ready wet weight of just 377 pounds. The fully-adjustable Ohlins FGR 300 forks and Brembo GP4 RR monoblock calipers are reportedly the same components utilized in the Superbike World Cup. 7-spoke carbon fiber wheels are wrapped in Pirelli Diablo slicks. Dynamic Traction Control features 14 adjustable ranges and pre-programmed modes for Wet, Intermediate, Dry1, and Dry2 conditions. Engine braking is also electronically adjustable with the EBR system, which provides assistance when decelerating. Wheelie Control is another programmable function, which, if desired, intervenes on gears one through three while accelerating to keep the front wheel on the ground. The 2D multifunction dashboard is equipped with GPS-enabled data logging. In addition to engine temperature, engine speed, and mph, the unit provides lap time and lap time gap. It also can record suspension travel, brake force, throttle position, lean, and more if the appropriate sensors are installed. Just one mile is shown on the display, though the bike has reportedly never been ridden. Peak output for the hand-assembled 999cc inline-four is 215 horsepower at 13,900 rpm, 16 more than that of the RR. Internally, the HP4’s engine received a lighter crankshaft, higher compression pistons, revised camshafts, and Pankl connecting rods. The Akrapovic exhaust is titanium down to the flanges and features a high-mount carbon silencer. A 6-speed close-ratio EVO gearbox comes fitted from the factory and utilizes a reverse shift pattern, with gears two through six actuated downwards. HP Shift Assistant Pro is also equipped to permit clutchless upshifting and downshifting. Crash guards from GBRacing have been mounted on either side of the engine case.
