According to BMW Motorrad, there are over 40% motorcyclists actively involved in track riding. For this reason the motorcycle arm of BMW decided to launch a new range of special products for use on the race track – the High Performance Race Parts. 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.
The Race Cover Kit includes two covers for the mirrors, two covers for the front direction indicators, a cover for the tail section and a white “HP High Performance Parts” lettering. The second Kit, called the HP Race Power Kit increases the performance. An Akrapovic racing exhaust system made of titanium reduce the back pressure and saves weight. The dB Eater (98 dB) included means that more stringent limitations imposed by race track operators can be adhered to if necessary. The racing control unit increases torque, especially in the medium engine speed range which is very important in racing. The unit has a refreshed racing data status for optimized racing modes (RAIN, SPORT, RACE, SLICK) as well as Dynamic Traction Control (DTC).
