BMW Hp4 Race for sale in Shipley

BMW HP4 Race 2018 with only 226 KM, limited edition number 328 of only 750 units produced. Excellent unmarked condition.

It is the first stock motorcycle in the world to have fully carbon chassis and rims: the HP4 RACE. A limited number of them are being crafted by specialists in the BMW Motorrad plant in Berlin. Each individual machine embodies the passion for two-wheelers, pushes boundaries and makes innovation history. "The HP4 RACE is the most exclusive bike that BMW Motorrad has ever made", says head of project Christian Gonschor. The excitement at the Auto Shanghai motor show is correspondingly high. Here, the HP4 RACE is unveiled to the public for the first time. Since BMW Motorrad presented an "Advanced Prototype" of the special edition bike at the EICMA in November 2016, the whole scene has been clamouring for more details. This is precisely what they get in China. The HP4 RACE number 001 takes centre stage. One of a limited number of bikes, handmade in the BMW Motorrad factory in Berlin. With fully carbon chassis and rims, the HP4 RACE High Performance is on a new level and projects the future of the superbike into the here and now. With the HP4 RACE, BMW Motorrad relies on carbon drive technology and is the first motorcycle manufacturer in the world to enter industrial small-scale production of a fully carbon chassis. Firstly, carbon entails a weight saving. As the HP4 RACE, which arose on the basis of the Double R, only weighs 146 kilos. Fully fuelled at 171 kilos, it is lighter than the latest factory racing bikes currently used in the Superbike World Championship and only slightly above the MotoGP factory racers in terms of weight. The reason for this is firstly the carbon chassis in monocoque design, which contributes a mere 7.8 kilos to the total weight. The carbon rims also have a big impact on the low weight: they are around 30 per cent lighter than light alloy forged wheels while maintaining the same level of rigidity. Combined with 158 kW (215 HP) of power, this makes the HP4 RACE the pulse generator on the track. As well as the machine's weight, carbon also changes the riding sensation and handling. With the HP4 RACE BMW Motorrad relies on "Carbondrive" technology. The category includes non-woven bonded fabrics with continuous fibres produced using the RTM process. The gyroscopic force in a set of manufactured carbon wheels is around 40 per cent less than in light alloy forged wheels. This, coupled with the lower total weight, thereby improves handling, faster changes of direction, acceleration and braking performance. "A carbon chassis allows optimal relationships between rigidity, torsion, bending, transverse rigidity and weight, which has a direct impact on the ride dynamics", product manager Josef Mächler explains. "With an aluminium chassis, you are considerably more restricted". Even with years of continuous load, the chassis remains firm and is therefore superior to the vast majority of racers when it comes to durability.
