Not knockin the HP, but c'mon now. The bikes have far more things in common than things they don't.
Seriously!!! I see, so now because you're not getting one "it's just the same as yours."
The frame is different than the 2013 S1RR. The Mapping for the motor, ABS and DTC is Different from the 2013 S1RR. The motor is upgradable to a WSBK spec, which is not available for the 2013 S1RR. The suspension is not available on the 2013 S1RR. The current HP4 comes standard with upgraded parts that are not available for the 2013 S1RR.
In 2 - 3 years you will be able to upgrade parts to make an S1RR similar to an HP4, but it will NEVER be an HP4 no matter how much you want it to be. Also, as much as you want the bits and pieces you can buy now to upgrade to an HP4, you will not.
Speak to anyone at any Motorad in the world and they will tell you this not even called an "S1000RR HP4"...It's actually called an "HP4
I guess you're going to tell us next that the S1000RR's that are raced in the WSBK's and AMA are just like yours as well...
The HP4 is the bike that BMW is using to Homologate for racing with the big boys next year...Yep, you're right, based just on this your bike must be the same.
