When extreme lightness, impressive power and first-class handling are combined, the result is known as HP - High Performance. The new HP4 now interprets this philosophy for the first time in the form of a 4-cylinder model. Based on the RR, a purebred factory motorcycle has been developed - made of the very best materials, moulded into top-class design. Its motor racing genes have turned it into a purebred factory motorcycle with high aspirations: it sets out to be the best motorcycle in the supersports segment, creating the same kind of stir as the RR before it.
Pure power: The lightest 4-cylinder engine (incl. ABS) in the segment is provides uncompromising forward thrust with an output of 142 kW (193 bhp) and a maximum torque of 112 Nm. The new silencer provides a higher level of torque in the medium range, so there is power available when it is needed. After all, the rider wants to be sure of top lap times.
Pure intelligence: Technologically speaking, the HP4 is more than a nose ahead of its time - as demonstrated by the fact that it boasts the world's first ever dynamic suspension system DDC. This automatically adapts damping to the situation at hand. Various modes are available to choose from: Rain and Sport for country roads, Race and Slick for the race track. The further developed DTC supplement this perfectly: it can be finely adjusted in Slick mode between -7 and +7. So it is always possible to find the perfect balance between support from the system and rider control. The result is crystal-clear feedback, maximum traction and optimum acceleration.
Pure exclusivity: The new HP4 comes fully into its own with its refined paint finish in the colours white and Racing blue, virtually unsurpassed in power and brilliance. Due to the involved manufacturing process, only a few models can be made during the production period up to 2014. The new HP4: uniquely exclusive - only available for a chosen few.
