BMW S 1000 RR Owners Get Extended Customer Sports Programme
text size: A- A+
An important part of the BMW Motorrad HP Race Programme are the High Performance Race Parts. The HP Race Power Kit has been available from BMW Motorrad dealers since autumn 2010, while the HP Race Calibration Kit was introduced in just last month.
The HP Race Power Kit comprises a titanium Akrapovic exhaust system and an engine control unit with racing data status. The package shaves 6.8 kg (15 lbs) off the weight of the standard RR and provides a performance boost most prominently mid-way up the rev range. Added to which, it also optimizes the ride modes (RAIN, SPORT, RACE, SLICK) for track work.
The HP Race Calibration Tool comes to complement to the HP Race Power Kit. It allows each rider to adjust the parameters of the engine management and DTC (injection, firing, traction control, input of various tyre parameters, gear change characteristics, pit lane speed limiter, erasing of adaptation values). Plus, professional tuning of the engine performance and traction enables the kit to enhance the bike’s handling characteristics. Both packages are intended solely for track use, and are not road legal.
“The level of interest among customers in taking their BMW S 1000 RR onto the track has increased significantly,” explains Berthold Hauser, Head of the BMW Motorrad HP Race Support Programme. “The standard production bike has all the tools to achieve success in a large number of race series – and at a comparatively low cost. Our task is clearly defined: we offer RR customers with sporting aspirations a ‘world’ around their motorcycle tailored to the requirements of the regulations governing their particular race series. In concrete terms, our focus is on developing and offering packages adapted to these specific demands. The package spans everything from high-performance racing parts to customer-specific technical support and consultancy.”
