BMW S1000RR vs BMW S1000RR HP4

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. More impressive still was the HP4. BMW has taken its already class-leading S1000RR and made it even better: 9kg lighter, more agile, smoother and ...

BMW S1000RR HP4 first ride: "Is it a huge leap over the standard S1000RR?"

Michael Neeves, 04 September 2012 10:14

I’ve just finished my second riding session on the new BMW S1000RR HP4 at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain. 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 ...

Michael Neeves blog – Off Road Skills

Michael Neeves, 18 October 2011 12:23

I’ve just returned from two days in Wales with Paris Dakar legend Simon Pavey, at his off-road school, or the ‘Odd Road Skills, powered by World of BMW and Husqvarna’, to give it its full name. It was the best riding school I’ve ever been to. I’ll readily admit I’m an off-road numpty. I love the idea of riding in ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Snetterton 200 3/4th September

Michael Neeves, 05 September 2011 16:56

For the penultimate round of the MRO Powerbike championship, we raced on the new two-mile-long Snetterton 200, the first ever meeting to be held on this mid-layout version of the new track. It’s the closest to how the 'old' Snetterton was - basically the 300 circuit without the infield section. There’s a chicane leading on to the back straight now ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Brands Hatch Indy 30/31 July

Michael Neeves, 05 August 2011 13:35

Well, that was another fantastic weekend racing with Bemsee in the MRO Powerbike championship. Riding my BMW Park Lane S1000RR, we bagged three third positions, had some close racing with leaders Rob McNealy and Peter Baker and I posted my best ever lap of the Brands Indy circuit, with a 48.1. Championship leader Rob McNealy stretched out his lead on ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Snetterton 300

Michael Neeves, 12 July 2011 16:12

Another good weekend racing in the bag, with two second places and a third. It’s the second time we’ve visited the Snetterton 300 circuit this year and we’re back again in September racing on the smaller ‘200’ layout. It’s very hard to grind out a good lap time around this place. There’s a real mix of ultra-fast, heart-in-the-mouth turns and ...

BMW S1000RR racers ridden

Michael Neeves, 07 July 2011 10:34

What happens when you take one of the most powerful, best-handling sportsbikes, loaded with the latest electronic rider aids and turn it into a racer? To find out, BMW let us ride four S1000RRs, back-to-back at Monza. We got familiar with the track on a bog-standard road bike, then tried Lorenzo Zanetti’s BMW Team Motorrad Italia FIM Superstock 1000 Cup ...
