This is the new BMW HP4 superbike – lighter than the BMW S 1000 RR weighing in at 199 kilos.

HP stands for high performance, and the HP4 embodies outstanding dynamics and high-quality materials. In fact, BMW claims the HP4 will be immediately ready for track use without any modifications. Yet it will also offer dynamic riding on public roads.
