The 2013 BMW HP4 Is the Lightest 1000cc Supersports Bike Ever

The 2013 BMW HP4 Is the Lightest 1000cc Supersports Bike Ever

Derived from BMW's S 1000 RR racing bike, the 2013 HP4 is the first four-cylinder bike in the HP family and packs 193 horsepower. That's on a bike that only weighs 373 pounds, 439 when race ready and 90 percent full of fuel. And as impressive as it is, the most exciting feature lies in the suspension.

For the first time as standard equipment in a production motorcycle, BMW implemented Dynamic Damping Control, which adapts to the type of driving your'e doing. If you're going through a turn, the suspension tightens up, and if you're in a straight line, it allows for more give. The bike offers rain, sport, race, and slick modes, each one with specific settings for the conditions. This is one of the most sought after bikes from the 2013 model year.
