not that ive ridden one (i wish ) but by all accounts they are meant to be a lot easier to ride fast out the box than any of the other superbikes due to all the sophisticated electronics etc i presume,granted the better rider you are the faster youll be able to go,no doubt but if a rider with a skill level of say 5/10 ,that rider would more than likely be able to achieve faster lap times on hp4 than rsv4/blade/etc etc
thats what a report i stumbled across reckoned anyway
but fantastic bit of kit either way

Begs the usual question of rider aids and rider skill. Don't want to turn this thread into another electronics vs skill thread, but I get what you mean. Won't necessarily mean that riders of high caliber would prefer the BMW's competitiors or vice versa. I love the RSV4F and the S1000RR, even though the bimmer has the power to beat the Aprilia easily it seems that it will also have the handling prowess as a result of it's electronics and upgrades to beat the Aprilia in the other crucial (handling) department. But I still don't know for sure which one I would go for. What about reliability, anyone with some solid feedback?

I parked my bike up at Oulton Park on Monday as the BSB (British Super Bikes) was on. I walked off to watch the racing and came back several hours later to collect my bike and parked next to me was a HP4. I had to laugh for a moment because parked next to mine it was absolutely tiny, it looked like a 125, i was thinking i could just pick this thing up, put it in my pocket and ride off with it...

Fantastic bike and i can only dream about owning one....

"but due to our relationship with the company, we were able to make a special arrangement that allowed us to test an HP4 before it was delivered to the customer. because of this special arrangement we were granted by BMW, and because this bike already belongs to a customer, we needed to be extremely careful on how we treated this test bike."

video then segues into power wheelie out of a turn. lol.

such a sexy piece of machinery.

Such an awesome bike, probably my dream bike if in honest. Looks brilliant in person and so so tiny.
Although I DO NOT think its worth the £6k premium (~45%) over the S1000RR personally.

A guy in our riding group has one and we just finally got him through the first break in. BMW limits the rpm's to 8000 for the first 1000km electronically then you have to take the bike in where they run a crap ton of tests to make sure there is no issues and then they uncork the thing. Freakin bike even comes with heated grips standard!

BMW is probably my overall favorite overall for cars as well. I had a turbo m3 for awhile I miss it

I really wish they would make a smaller CC sports bike tho. Like a s600rr lol
