Hp4 s1000rr?
Not sure I buy that this is actually being made...but hey, it's possible.

According to some reports on the web that seem fairly believable, BMW are all set to launch a new version of the S1000RR in September this year. This bike, the S1000RR HP4, will feature revised engine mapping, with power going up to 200-205bhp. With extensive use of carbonfibre, dry weight will be around 170 kilos (375lbs).

The 2013 BMW S1000RR HP4 will also gets bits like an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, race-ABS with upgraded Brembo monobloc brakes, forged alloy wheels (carbonfibre wheels might also be offered), updated electronics for the bike’s multi-stage traction control system, race-spec Ohlins electronically adjustable suspension and a new digital dashboard. Some modifications to the aluminium twin-spar chassis are also expected, to deal with the increased power output.

The S1000RR HP4 is expected to be launched in the first week of September this year, with a price tag of about 20,000 euros($24,31. We’ll post more information and official pictures as soon as possible.

May also have the new BMW Dynamic Damping control, which would be the first computer controlled adaptive suspension in the motorcycle market

Neat, but seems like more power is needed if they are going to call it a hot rod version.

it's supposedly getting more power....and -25 pounds.

In reading the S1000RR forums, concensus seems to be yes, this is going to be made. Dealers know of a release 3rd quarter 2012 and the watercooled R1200GS isn't ready yet, and seeing as the revised 800GS and such just got released, this does seem the likely candidate.

One guy mentioned that it makes sense to have an ultimate model type thing because they are do for a full revision in the next year or two...so this is kind of a swan song for the 2010-2013/14 model.

Well, I really like the current iteration.
That said, 205 simply is not enough horses powers for a bike as heavy as 375lb.
What if a more robust framed rider buys it? It'll barely get out of its own way.

But they'd sell more if they called it an ///M version.

officially revealed

http://blog.motorcycle.com/2012/07/2...aunch-control/



“ Quote:
Like the S1000RR, the HP4 claims 190 hp at 13,000 rpm and 83 ft-lb. at 9750 rpm. The HP4 however has been tuned to offer more torque from 6000 to 9750 rpm. Also like its predecessor, the HP4 will have four ride modes, Rain, Sport, Race and Slick. On the HP4 however, horsepower will have access to its full power in all four modes including Rain mode. The Rain mode has also been tuned for a smoother torque curve from 2500 to 8000 rpm.

The HP4 will be the first production model to come with dynamic damping control (DDC), BMW technology that adapts the suspensionís damping characteristics to road conditions. DDC uses information from sensors to electrically control the suspensionís regulation valves to optimize damping.

BMW is also introducing its new launch control system on the HP4. Available in Slick mode, launch control maximizes acceleration from a standing start. The system limits engine torque while maximizing torque transferable to the rear wheel. The rider will be able to focus on controlling acceleration from a start using just the clutch without having to worry about the throttle position. The launch control system will also work as an anti-wheelie aide by reducing engine torque when it detects front wheel lift.

Like the rest of BMWís lineup, the HP4 will come standard with anti-lock brakes. The HP4 will be equipped with the same Race ABS system introduced with the S1000RR. The HP4′s Race ABS however has a refined Slick mode with data collected from racing experience in Germanyís IDM Championship. Unlike the S1000RR, the HP4 will come standard with Brembo monobloc calipers.

According to BMW, the HP4 weighs in at 199 kg (438.7 pounds) with a 90% full fuel tank and 169 kg (372.6 pounds) dry. By comparison, BMW claims a wet weight of 451 pounds for the S1000RR and a dry weight of 398 pounds.

Some of the weight loss is from new seven-spoke forged alloy wheels with a lighter sprocket, shaving about 5 pounds compared to the S1000RR. Another 10 pounds were saved by using a new titanium exhaust system.

Styling-wise, the HP4 has the same asymmetric headlight and fairing design as the S1000RR. The HP4 however has a longer engine spoiler and a tinted windshield.

As if the new BMW HP4′s specs werenít impressive enough, BMW will be offering a Competition Package upgrade with a number of carbon fiber components including a longer, enclosed engine spoiler, adjustable foot pegs, folding brake and clutch levers, metallic blue wheels and a sponsor sticker kit.

It's German. It has assist-everything. It wouldn't be a BMW if it didn't go out of its way to help you spend money at a mechanic.

On the other hand, this is great for everyone, even if you don't care about the BMW. It pushes other manufacturers to raise their game.

If this bike came with race-DTC (I know it's adjustable), didn't bother with the electronic suspension crap, and added direct shift linkage, it would be well worth it!

More torque and a tinted windshield, is that really worth a whole new model?!

and new brakes, and full new suspension (first ever motorcycle dynamic adapting suspension. ) and updated traction control modes, and launch control,

there's a lot of new $$$ parts on this HP4 version than meets the initial glance.
