2013 BMW S1000RR HP4

For 2013, BMW will introduce the first-ever four-cylinder machine into the HP (High Performance) family – the HP4.

The factory-modded HP4 uses the S1000RR as a platform, the bike offering 193 horsepower. The big advancement on the HP4 is the use of Dynamic Damping Control, the HP4 the first motorcycle to utilize such technology.

Speaking of the Dynamic Damping Control, BMW says “the new HP4 reflects its status as a high-performance motorcycle in terms of its suspension system with a world first for serial production motorcycles: it is fitted as standard with Dynamic Damping Control DDC. This system allows dynamic damping adaptation of the upside-down fork and spring strut to the specific situation on the road. The damping is adapted to the current maneuvering or road surface by means of sensor-supplied parameters via electrically controlled regulation valves. In this way, the HP4 offers optimum damping in every situation, handling long and short shocks virtually perfectly so as to provide maximum traction and safety.”

The HP4 also arrives with Race ABS that features with IDM setting for maximum brake performance, a 200/55 ZR 17 tire on the rear wheel, finely adjustable Dynamic Traction Control in “Slick” mode, launch control and shift assistance for optimal gearshifts, among others.

The HP4 will also be available with a competitive package upgrade, the package featuring refined HP carbon parts including a long, closed HP engine spoiler in carbon, an adjustable HP rider footrest system, folding HP brake and clutch levers, wheels finished in
Racing blue metallic and a sponsor sticker kit provide additional enhancement of the new HP4.
