never had interest in the s1000rr until that HP4. lighter and stronger powerband in the middle they say. very nice bike. if I lived in a state with a warmer year round climate I would seriously consider it. But alas, it's f*ckin cold half the time here and I couldn't stand looking at a 20k + bike in the damn garage. oh well, time to upgrade the f150

I wonder how much weight the HP4 can shed, to put it in the same category (weight wise) as the kawi, cbr and the very light panigale.

just searched...it's 15lbs lighter due to exhaust and wheels. The guy who did the review said it felt much stronger than the zx10. and this was overseas so that's an unrestricted zx10. Damn that BMW is sweet.

Yeah, and the test riders that got paid by Kawasaki said the opposite... LOL

15 lbs is not very impressive IMHO, a lot of pork to be shed from the bike in street trim.

Can save that on our bikes with a megaphone and tune. Then the street beating gets even worse. Only thing beemer is better at is top end.


If you can't run with the big dogs,
stay on the f@ckin' porch.

Haha. Good points. I lost massive weight on my CBR with exhaust, undertail, shoria battery etc. Now I'm well under 400 with empty tank.

Dry weight for 2012 is about 385 dry. Slip on and batt will get it down to around 365-370. I think that's less than the beemer in stock trim. CBR will always be my 1st choice also. Ride safe bro, Rubber down.

So with a lithium battery, a total weight savings of about -20lbs... so it'll be something like 435 lbs, wet weight, same as the zx10r.

I do like the HP4. I like that the akro is street legal, among the many other bells and whistles on the HP4.

Just bought a 2013 F150 yesterday. Seriously great prices, $11K off sticker plus a rebate and 1.9%. My old one was out of warranty and acting "funny". Screw that, no truck worries for me.
