Stealing everything legally possible from the fabled 1000 RR, the BMW HP4 is the lightest 4-cylinder supersports bike you can find on the planet, weighing 199 kilos (that’s about 438lbs). The HP4 from BMW Motorrad delivers exactly what the abbreviated moniker says, High Performance. Stuffed with a 1000cc engine that torments the road with a rampant 193 horses, this bike races with the wind. With a torque lift of 6000RPM to 9750RPM over the RR, you’ll harness the punch and the power you need, when you need it. The HP4 comes equipped with Race ABS, Launch Control, Brembo monobloc brakes and the world’s first Dynamic Damping Control, that according to BMW, adjusts damping automatically based on current riding conditions. BMW even made modifications to Dynamic Traction Control to assist the new DDC feature. In conclusion, the BMW HP4 provides you power, support and control. The essential framework for the perfect riding experience.
To go along with that Dark Knight styled BatPod, for a mere $55,000 you can have your own Tron:Legacy inspired light cycle. What started as a small customization project now has evolved into a custom order production run. Given life by a fuel-injected Suzuki 996cc, 4 stroke engine, the street-legal motorcycle is designed for cruising and not high speed. Built to order, a steel frame serves as the skeleton underneath fiberglass body that glows in the dark just like the movie Tron:Legacy. Video of the bike at RedFerret.
