I know it's kinda dumb to worry about signals but, every picture I've seen shows HP led signals, dealer sent me pics of mine and it has standard signals like my 2012 does, nothing different, I told my dealer that's false advertising look at your site it shows led.

Well the have a call into BMW, waited this long and now waiting to her about damn turn signals, haha what a joke

I'd be pissed... it's small but that doesn't really matter. If I was told I was gettin a sweet HP4 keychain and it didn't show I'd call foul.

Yes, looked at the Internet pics and the pics I took. The signals look orange inside and the case is much bigger on my pics. I will also ask about it.

But the brochure also says only Comps get the engraving, but that is not the case.

Exactly... the HP4 is Hype to me... Sure its got lots of nice little bits... but I STILL LOVE MY 2012... and I couldnt justify selling it to buy the next thing to roll out the doors...

I will wait a few years until they come out with the next HP and then drop the hammer... until then I will stick to my Sexy as Hell S1000RR

Response from my dealer

"Sometimes the signals are different in different courtries because of rules regarding turn signals

Non of the HP4s have LED turn signals that we received and none of the bikes we sell have LED turn signals"

Canada and USA have different rules. Such as in Canada, all cars require running daylights. But this is not over there. I will be investigating deeper. Those LED's are retailing for over $265!

I went to the dealer to look at the bike... I must say the Comp stands out much more compared to the standard. I originally had a standard ordered but changed it. kinda glad I did. But agreed the whole family line is bad ass. Thanks for the info on the badges, I appreciate it.
