Sorry if this is a repost. Well a couple weeks back BMW hosted a ride day for the new HP4 model. Here is motorcycle news review of it as well as several HQ pics! What a sexy bike.

Price is estimated to start over 20k with the carbon version being anywhere from 22-24k!! This includes BMW's and the worlds first semi-active suspension system on a bike, 15 modes of traction control, and launch control.

Beautiful bike! So somehow BMW managed to make an exhaust that conforms to all of those standards and still not look fugly... Kawi, maybe you should learn from BMW?!

This thread needs more pictures.

Oh yeah, and this is the bike BMW should have built from day one, but I guess given their timeline on supersports bikes, I can forgive them.
 
haha this one really does look like a fish. Check out those gills.

Wish BMW would give it up with the assymetric lights. Looks like the spawn of a crack addict and a drunk at the front.

I used to think the same thing, but it grew on me, especially in this colour scheme.
Looks ****ing badass!
Personally, if I was in the market for a high end motorcycle, I'd go for this model over any other litre bike in it's class. (including the Panigale & RSV4)

Still the RSV4 for me. V4 motor, tiny... I can't even begin to use the capabilities of that on the road, much less a bike with a pile more horsepower (not that it matters much under about 250km/h anyways).

I think this bike makes racing to easy.
If you get good on this bike, and then switch back to a regular bike, you may find yoursef in trouble.
This bike has traction control and all kinds of other things that adjust for you. Rather than the rider taking control of the bike.

Its been like that since 2010. I think this bike and all the bikes with TC can let a rider get closer to the limit.......its a good thing.
