BMW HP4 Race First Ride Review

Here’s a front end you’ve never tried before unless you race in a world championship series. The 46mm Öhlins fork is its high-end FGR300 unit with titanium-nitride-coated sliders that is ubiquitous in WSB competition, fully adjustable, of course. Braking is ably handled by Brembo GP4 PR (for professional racing) nickel-plated calipers filled with four ti-nitride-coated pistons biting on 320mm rotors, 6.75mm thick to better resist heat degradation. You’ll see these binders in WSB and sometimes in wet-weather MotoGP races. Upper-top-shelf kit!
