The All-New BMW HP 4 Race. Individually crafted for top performance on the race track.

The all-new BMW S 1000 RR HP4 Race represents a purebred racing bike with only  750 units ever produced. The motorcycles are individually crafted by a small, highly specialised team to ensure the very highest level of performance and reliability on the racetrack.

The HP4 RACE offers a purebred racing engine similar to specifications 6.2 and 7.2 as in the Endurance and World Superbike Championships (WSBK). The peak output is 158 kW (215 hp) at 13900 rpm. The maximum torque of 120 Nm is reached at 10000 rpm. The maximum RPM has been increased from 14200 to 14500 RPM,  compared to the standard S 1000 RR. A 6-speed close-ratio racing gearbox is used with optimised ratios and various secondary ratios.

While engine and electronics are in the same category as the current superbike factory racebikes, The S 1000 RR HP4 Race does one better by featuring a carbon fibre frame. In fact, weighing 171 kilograms when fully fuelled and track ready, the new HP4 RACE is even lighter than the factory racing bikes.

The new BMW HP4 RACE likewise meets the highest demands of racing technology in the area of suspension and brakes. Both the Öhlins FGR 300 upside-down fork and TTX 36 GP rear shock are identical to those used in the WSBK and MotoGP. The light alloy underslung swingarm made of milled and sheet metal parts is also a component used in WSBK. Featuring two Brembo GP4 PR monobloc brake calipers, the brake system of new HP4 RACE also has parts otherwise only to be found in WSBK machines. Coated titanium pistons and single-piece aluminium calipers with chemically nickel-plated surface make for what is currently the very best combination of materials available. In conjunction with 6.75 mm thick 320 millimetre T-type racing steel brakes, the system ensures stunning brake performance.

The new BMW HP4 RACE comes with an extensive package of electronic control and assistance systems as well as a weight-optimised on-board electrical system which has been optimised to meet racing needs. A wealth of information is available on the 2D dashboard (data-logger) with transferable data memory.

The BMW HP4 Race is only available in the BMW HP Motorsport colour scheme which gives the ultimate superbike an aggressive demeanour.

The All-New BMW G 310 GS. Ready for everyday adventures.

The GS range of BMW Motorrad motorcycles represent a promise of perfect functioning, reliability and robustness. The BMW G 310 GS transfers these qualities to the below-500cc capacity segment, embracing in its own distance, mature interpretation. A highly contemporary product with a level of versatility that is currently unrivalled in the segment. It is nimble and agile in city traffic, while supremely robust over light terrain. This makes it the perfect companion for the adventures of everyday riding. Extremely compact yet mature and comfortable, the GS opens up a whole new world of riding experience within its segment. It is precisely this versatility that makes the BMW G 310 GS unique in the entry-level segment.

BMW G 310 GS

The centerpiece of the new BMW G 310 GS is the 313cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valves, single-cylinder engine. A salient feature of the single-cylinder engine in the BMW G 310 GS is the fact that its cylinder is tilted to the rear and its cylinder head is rotated by 180 degrees: intake at the front, outlet at the rear. This configuration follows the logic that a straight, power-enhancing supply of fresh air-fuel mixture and also has positive consequences in terms of the bike’s architecture. With an output of 25kW (34bhp) at 9,500 RPM and a maximum torque of 28Nm at 7,500 RPM, the engine of the new BMW G 310 GS is the ideal partner for dynamic riding pleasure, in conjunction with the low unladen weight of 169.5kg (373lbs.).

In terms of its suspension, the G 310 GS utilises a tubular steel spaceframe with bolt-on rear section that combines torsional rigidity with robust quality. Given its good stiff balance, this provides the basis for excellent ride stability and a precise steering response. The front suspension uses upside-down forks, while at the rear shock is mounted directly to the aluminium swingarm.

With a high front fender, striking flyline and short, high rear, the G 310 GS features classic elements of its big GS sibling models. Its compact proportions with a short wheelbase, a 19-inch front wheel and extended suspension travel makes a comfortable ride over bad road surfaces. The G 310 GS is also designed for the world market, it is compatible with diverse fuel qualities as well as meets all emissions standards and local requirements.

BMW G 310 GS

The BMW G 310 GS is available in three strikingly expressive colour variants: Cosmic Black non-metallic, Racing Red non-metallic and the elaborately designed Pearl White metallic. These variants offer a spectrum ranging from sporty and robust to contemporary.

The New BMW S 1000 XR. Adventure Sport Further Refined.

With the introduction of the BMW S 1000 XR in 2015, BMW Motorrad offered its own new interpretation of the sport-touring range, not least adding a powerful dose of emotion into the mix.

Even more potent now, the new S 1000 XR offers a new in-line 4-cylinder engine which meets the EU4 requirements. However, reduction in emissions does not necessarily mean a reduction in power. The output is now rated at 165 bhp (121 kW) at 11,000 RPM.

The new XR sees an increase of 10 kg in both the maximum permissible weight and the payload of the bike for more luggage hauling capability. Softer isolating elements on the handlebars effectively reduce vibrations from being passed onto the rider’s hands.

The new S 1000 XR is available in a new colour offering of refined Ocean Blue metallic matt which gives the Adventure Sport touring bike a more distinctively refined appearance.
