BMW Motorrad has just announced pricing for its new HP4 superbike, the first production sportbike to be equipped with Dynamic Damping Control semi-active suspension. Base MSRP for the single-seat HP4 will be just $19,990, including DDC, Dynamic Traction Control, Race ABS, forged aluminum wheels, titanium Akrapovic exhaust, and more. A so-called Standard package for $20,525 adds a passenger seat and footrests, as well as heated grips. The Competition package adds a carbon fiber lower fairing and assorted trim pieces, HP adjustable billet levers and rearsets, Racing Blue wheels, a sponsor decal kit, and more to the base model for $24,995.
This aggressive pricing makes the HP4 a remarkable value. A fully equipped version of BMW’s standard S1000RR superbike sells for $16,995, while competitive models like Ducati’s 1199 Panigale S, which features Ohlins suspension components that are electronically adjustable but not semi-active, sells for $23,995.
