BMW Motorrad has expanded its equipment accessory program for the S1000RR to include special products for use on the race track—High Performance Race Parts.
BMW Motorrad says they are responding to the fact that over 40% of motorcyclists are actively involved in track riding—either race track training or professionally in national racing series. For this reason, BMW Motorrad will be offering race track riders special products which are approved solely for use on the race track and are not authorized for road use.
The first in the range will be the HP Race Cover Kit and the HP Race Power Kit, which will be available from July 2010. Other HP Race Parts such as the HP Race Calibration Kit, the HP Race shift-pattern reversal and the HP Race right footrest plate will be available from the fourth quarter of 2010.
HP Race Cover Kit
For use on the race track, the mirrors, front direction indicators and licence plate holder including rear direction indicators are usually removed. The HP Race Cover Kit provides covers to replace the missing parts so as to give the motorcycle the perfect racing trim in visual terms, too.
The kit includes two covers for the mirrors, two covers for the front direction indicators, a cover for underside of tail section as well as a blue fabric bag with white “HP High Performance Parts” lettering in which to keep the covers.
HP Race Power Kit
With the HP Race Power Kit BMW Motorrad meets race track riders’ needs with regard to further increased performance.
An Akrapovic® racing exhaust system made of light titanium not only ensures significantly reduced exhaust back pressure but also saves weight. The dB Eater (98 dB) included means that more stringent limitations imposed by race track operators can be adhered to if necessary.
A feature already used by many racing teams, the racing control unit with racing data status provides optimised engine qualities and a significant increase in torque, especially in the medium engine speed range which is so important in racing.
The data status developed for race track use ensures optimization of the ride modes (RAIN, SPORT, RACE, SLICK) as well as Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), providing further enhanced acceleration, traction and therefore performance.
The device is authorized by means of a code which is entered in the control unit by the BMW Motorrad dealer.
