BMW Motorrad USA is bringing something very new to the 13th annual Barber Vintage Festival: the 2018 BMW HP4 Race. This 215 hp masterpiece of engineering prowess represents the most exclusive motorcycle ever offered by BMW.
It is a handmade, racetrack-only limited-edition superbike that will only be available to 750 racing enthusiasts worldwide. Reinforcing its exclusivity, each HP4 Race is identified with a sequentially numbered carbon badge on the milled fork bridge, ranging from 001/750 to 750/750. The HP4 Race– the first motorcycle in the world to offer a fully carbon frame and fully carbon wheels – will be showcased at the BMW display in the vendor area as well as in the pit area with BMW Motorrad Motorsports Advisor and test rider Nate Kern. Festival attendees will have no trouble locating it, as the bike will be started up periodically throughout the weekend and the roar of its pure-bred engine will be unmistakable.
The 13th annual Barber Vintage Festival is one of the largest vintage festivals in the country. With more than 73,651 attending last year’s festival, up from 69,624 the year before, the festival continues to grow each year allowing more events and opportunities for the fans. The weekend will consist of on-track racing action provided by the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA), in addition to motorcycle displays, bike shows, stunt shows and more.
