I hope my HP4 still rides smooth once I put my chrome wheels on and lower it by one inch. Then I plan to cut off one of the front brake calipers to better show my wheels.

Sounds crazy huh?

Are we SERIOUSLY debating over how good the HP4 is on the street? Really? Come on guys, it's designed for ONE thing. If you choose to take it back and forth to bike night, then don't ridicule the BMW engineers for not making it comfortable as you cruise along at a blistering 70mph.

This is why the American sport car market is littered with 5000lb, leather interior, navigation, heated seat, heated steering wheel, 22 inch chrome wheel "sports cars"

If you want a street bike, buy one. If you want a track bike buy one. If you want both, don't complain that it want to both.

Rant off.

Thanks for listening.

I was going to buy a reg s1k, but for the money, and a bit of rarity, it was a small up charge to get all the added bits.

Just my 2 cents Canadian

The competition models are absolutely more exclusive than the standards. How much more? Oh I'd say 1,900 times more. That's the difference between 2,500 standards produced and only 600 comps. Numbers don't lie

It's actually 4.17 times more exclusive, but yeah, what he said.

A truly massaged engine that isn't just an aftermarket exhaust slapped on (the HP2 boxer gained power over the standard oilheads through redesigned heads).

I guess when those who own HP4's and have previously owned S1000RR's start giving ride comparisons then this topic will be mute. The only S1RR's that even come close to riding like this machine are worth a lot more than the HP4 Comp is being sold for.

'Bespoke parts?' OK, I see...

Given you've never ridden an HP4 and have sunk a bucket load of money into your own S1000RR, I'd say this remains a case of sour grapes.

As I see it, the HP4 was built to be affordable by pretty much everyone who's already bought an S1RR...admittedly, some might be at a stretch. Here's an idea, BMW should make their version of a Desmocidici...oh wait, in Australia Desmo's retailed for over $120K. For this price, I could buy a hand built S1RR ready for AMA or even WSBK racing....I'm sure it'd have 'BESPOKE' parts though.

Unbelievable.....S1000 owners arguing with each other. It's like having two factions now. Some soon to be HP4 owners are gloating. Let them. Some non HP4 owners are jealous...don't be. There will always be those that throw what they have in your face. Then there are those that have, and share their excitement with others. These are the ones we should respond to. Also , ignore the haters.
Please continue to share your HP4 experiences with us. I personally don't dig the color scheme. I own a four month old 2012 Red/White. Love it. Congrats to those getting the new bike. They are bad azz.

If the competition engine had more hp than the standard or fullyelectronic compression and damping suspension then I said yes it is exclusive but so far the only difrence is the add on cosmetic stuff as others have stated,you can add all the competition goodies to a std and who will tell the diffrence
