Default All HP4 Reviews

Well a thought, how about a thread with all online reviews of the HP4. There are individual threads but how about compiling all into one.

I'll start

Here is a review from late Kevin Ash

I've read almost every HP4 review out there, but this is the one that introduced me to the HP4: Cycle Worlds Nov 2012 Edition.

2013 BMW HP4- Riding Impression Review- Specs- Price

As luck would have it, a friend gave me a year subscription to the mag in 2011 for a gift. When I got the Nov edition, it was over. I saw the HP4, read everything I could find about it and two days later my deposit was made.

Its true about the suspension.

When I sat on the s1000RR and HP4 at the show, I went back and forth.
I was surprised that there was no give in the HP4 suspension

This is one of my favorite reviews:

"Feeling brave, I set the traction control to -3 but four corners into my hot lap, through a fast left, I wound it back to -1 after realising the HP4 has balls. And they’re bigger than mine."
