Damn

Not sure about the DDC mind,we'll have to see on that score.

It'll look sick in black, that's for sure.

Hmm

Nice, another bike for ageing business men to own with the electrics they can brag about to their mates - I defy the average s1000 owner to get to the point where the rider aids need to kick in

HP4.......Brown sauce or dog's ballox?

At last,at bloody at last BMW have actually given this bike a lower fairing that looks complete,instead of all the nasty little panels dotted all over the place. Never mind the excuse if the bike is decked you replace only broken panels,thus saving owner money.The original looks CACK...period!!! Not to keen on colour as the HP serious should be black,white and that lovely rich blue,still makes nay difference to me,i can't afford one.

Good move!

Ducati's system of designating sportbikes, IMO, is the benchmark for the industry. Start with a standard version, add a "S" at about 5 grand more with better suspension and some more options and then either add a "R" or Tricolore" at an additional 5 grand on top the S with a hot, track ready package and great paint scheme.

Nice to see BMW is now offering hyper versions of their S1000RR under the HP label. That's a good move.

I was hoping that the bike looked a bit different than the stock, considering it will sell for about $19-20K US, based on some leaked info from Germany.

This leaked document that was initially posted on http://www.portalmotos.com/revista/noticias/bmw-hp4-primeros-apuntes-de-la-supersport-de-bmw/13080.html also shows a Competition version in the works, which would be the equivalent of Ducati's R or Tricolor. It will be called BMW S1000RR HP4 Competition. The price tag is about 22-24K US. Keep in mind these prices are all guesstimates based on this document, it is possible that in the US they will offer a much better deal. Here's the screen grab of the page in question: http://www.portalmotos.com/imagenes/Imagenes_Web/albumes/Motos%20espectaculares/BMW%20HP4/10299.jpg

Every advance is worthwhile

To the idiot who stated that only ageing businessmen will buy them and never use any of the electronic aid, YOU ARE 100% WRONG. Every aspect of the original RR is useful on a day to day basis. From switching engine maps depending on the conditions, allowing all weather riding for a 200HP bike. Electronic suspension will work all the time, improving feel and comfort, especially in less than ideal road conditions, which are too common in the UK. Extra lightness is another useful feature, as are the improvements in looks from the carbon etc... Essentially anyone who says, what's the point, is either jealous or a luddite in terms of technological progress. Yes this isn't a working class bike, good thing too. It's about time biking was wrestled from the grimy hands of the Jap loving proletariat.

Carryover Feature?

I wonder if this edition will have the awesome "engine blowup" feature like the standard version?
