Praised by its manufacturer as ‘the lightest supersport with ABS,’ the S 1000 RR has proven itself on several occasions both on country roads as well as on the racing circuit. BMW Motorrad, however, felt like it was time to further enhance the bike’s capabilities, and launched a range of new special products for use on the race track - the High Performance Race Parts.

According to the motorcycle arm of BMW, there are over 40 percent motorcyclists actively involved in track riding, either training or racing. That is why this new equipment is destined for race only purposes.

The range will first introduce the HP Race Cover Kit and the HP Race Power Kit, both 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.

First off, the HP Race Cover Kit comes to replace the mirrors, front direction indicators and licence plate holder including rear direction indicators that are usually removed for race use. 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.

Secondly, the HP Race Power Kit includes an Akrapovic racing exhaust system made of light titanium that reduces exhaust back pressure and saves weight, a racing control unit with racing data status for optimized riding modes (RAIN, SPORT, RACE, SLICK) as well as Dynamic Traction Control (DTC).
