2013 BMW HP4

2013 BMW HP4: HP4 is more than a bedazzled S1000RR. The comprehensive system of electronic rider aids has been updated as well. New, more aggressive Race ABS parameters improve the already class-leading braking performance and the excellent Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) finally allows 15 levels of fine adjustment, rather than last year’s one-response-fits-all setting. There’s also a new launch-control system for racing and, of course, Dynamic Damping Control (DDC), the first self-adjusting, semi-active suspension damping system ever fit to a production motorcycle.

We hate to use the phrase “game changer,” but once again, BMW has changed the game. Dynamic Damping Control improves suspension action as dramatically as Race ABS improves braking, or Dynamic Traction Control improves rear grip. Dynamic Damping Control, adapted from electronic damping systems used on BMW’s high-end automobiles, is an order of magnitude beyond the company’s existing Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA) or even Ducati’s Öhlins-built Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES).
