The track-focussed motorcycle from BMW Motorrad, made its global debut last year. The BMW HP4 Race is a limited edition motorcycle with only 750 units available globally.
The BMW HP4 Race is the first motorcycle in the world to receive a carbon-fibre mainframe, weighing just 7.8kg. The HP4 Race also gets both front and rear wheels in carbon-fibre. This helps reduce 30 percent of the weight, compared to standard light alloy-forged wheels.

The BMW HP4 Race is powered by a 999cc, in-line four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, race-spec engine. It produces 215bhp at 13,900rpm and 120Nm of torque at 10,000rpm. The engine is further mated to a six-speed racing transmission with straight-cut gears.

The BMW HP4 Race rides on 17-inch Pirelli Diabolo Superbike Slick SC2 tyres, which come as standard.

Both prices are ex-showroom (Delhi). However, the 1299 Panigale Superleggera is road-legal, while the HP4 Race is not.
