Motosutra presents you with the BMW HP4 RACE. The HP series has a long history of raising the bar regarding performance and fit-for-racetrack technologies. Now, with the HP4 RACE, BMW Motorrad will go even further.
To begin with, the HP4 RACE is limited to only 750 units, each of them hand-made. The engineers at BMW have taken it to the limit and beyond to put together the best racing technology available today.
The BMW HP4 RACE is every bit a racetrack-only superbike. THE ultimate superbike. And yet, it can be handled. No matter what your capability, pace, or professional level are.
