Named “Best Superbike,” the 215 hp masterpiece of engineering prowess represents the most exclusive motorcycle ever offered by BMW.

BMW HP4 Race Named Best Superbike Among Cycle World’s Ten Best Bikes For 2017

“We are extremely proud to receive this coveted award from Cycle World right out of the gates with this bike,” commented Michael Peyton, Vice President, BMW Motorrad North America. “The HP4 pushes the boundaries for racing performance in ways that were previously unimaginable; and it advances motorcycle technology in ways that will benefit riders across our entire model range, both on and off the track.”

Featured in the November issue of Cycle World (and, the BMW HP4 is hailed by editors, who write: “In a world of super superbikes, the BMW HP4 Race takes it a step beyond. It is in many ways more exotic than those machines raced at the pinnacle of the sport in World Superbike. The 377-pound HP4 Race weighs, for example, only 7 pounds more than the World Superbike-class minimum weight limit, and that’s with a full tank of fuel. Such is the glory of the bike’s carbon-fiber frame, swingarm, and wheels. But the finest components complete this beautiful track-only machine: an Öhlins FGR 300 fork and TTX 36 GP shock, Brembo GP4 PR Monoblock brake calipers, and Forged Pankl rods in an engine that is claimed to make 215 hp. Some things are too fantastic to be common. The HP4 Race is one of those things.”
