Meet the 2014 BMW HP4, a scary German machinery that wears a High Performace badge. The motorcycle was derived from the S 1000 RR so it is powered by the lightest 4-cylinder engine in the segment.
The 999cc, water/oil-cooled, in-line 4-cylinder, 4-stroke unit puts out a peak power of 193 Hp (142 KW) at 13,000 rpm and 83 Lb/Ft (112 Nm) at 9,750 rpm. All this power can propel you to a maximum speed of over 125 mph and is kept in leash by a constant mesh six speed gearbox.
The engine is mounted in the center of an aluminium composite bridge frame which sits on a front upside down telescopic fork with Dynamic Damping Control DDC, Adjustable Spring Preload and Electronically Adjustable Damping. Out back there is an aluminium dual swing arm with dynamic damping control DDC (central spring strut), hydraulically adjustable spring preload, adjustable compression and rebound damping.
