BMW HP4 Race

Just when I thought I was “over” my sports bike love affair BMW pull me back in with the HP4 Race at the Milan Show


A fully carbon fibre built bike wrapped around a World Superbike  S1000RR and components.

BMW’s President Stephan Schaller said “We want to show the world that we are ready to mass produce a carbon mainframe and that it is not just a hand-built prototype,”


HP4 project leader Christian Gonschor concluded “The bike is a kind of taste of the future and in the first half of next year we will reveal more information about the bike such as weight, specification, production volume and of course, price.”

It’s going to be well outside the depths of my pockets but it’s definitely something special.
