As if the HP4 wasn't perfect enough as it is, BMW has pushed the boat out. All the way out.
This new 212bhp £68,000 limited-edition machine is dubbed the HP4 'race' and the spec is mindblowing.
Those Ohlins FGR300 forks are straight off a MotoGP bike and the frame is all carbon, weighing just 7.8kg. The whole bike is lighter than a WSB machine. It's the ultimate toy for anyone who rides on track. Sadly they're not homologated for road use.
