• BMW to release a hotter S1000RR HP4 edition for homologation purposes?

      The BMW S1000RR is an absolutely awesome high performance bike that BMW Motorrad created in part to race in the Superbike World Championship. It is this continued desire to race in various series that has led to this HP4 edition. The bike has the same power output as the standard S1000RR but with a different torque map, dynamic dampening control, launch control, and lighter weight.

      31 pounds have been shaved off thanks to lighter wheels, a titanium exhaust, lighter sproket bearer, and a lighter battery. No word on pricing or if it will make it to the United States. One of the best sport bikes in the world just got better.

        It looks like it has a set of Evolution Line Akra which is good for 8-9hp more. Good job David Click here to enlarge

        Every time I see this bike (S1000R) - I want one. I would probably kill myself on it, but I still want one.

        I think I'm just going to buy one. I can probably get a great deal on a 2011.

        Gorgeous. Made a promise to myself to never get into bikes; know too many people that have had their lives destroyed from crashes : (

        Well tell me. If it's at a dealer it likely should have had all recalls applied.

        I think it is an option if you buy a M3 GT4 from BMW Motorsports. ; )

        Nice looking bike, now if only BMW weren't such pussies and decided to take on Honda and Yamaha in MotoGP then it would be even cooler.

        On this bike it's standard and Akra has a deal with some dealerships for the S1000RR I believe.

        That's insane, if only they made the 6 cylinder concept. This is close enough for now haha.
