Michael Neeves, 04 January 2013 07:30

A few months ago I was lucky enough to ride the new BMW HP4 at its world launch at Jerez, southern Spain. With perfect track conditions and slick tyres to play on, it was a dream.

As well as having lighter wheels, a titanium Akrapovic exhaust and improved electronic rider aids, it’s the first production bike to have electronically-adjustable rebound and compression damping (Dynamic Damping Adjustment). You still need to manually adjust the suspension, albeit via ...

They can do big miles (as many as old touring tyres) and they’ll even handle track days. Crucially for UK riders, sports touring rubber is also the best you can buy for the rain – ...
