Please NOTE: We recently posted another 2014 HP4 for sale — one with over 5,000 miles on it but in similarly immaculate condition — and it was gone in just a FEW DAYS! It’s a highly unlikely coincidence that we would have TWO of these rare models to offer in such a short span, yet we expect there to be even more demand for this one because of its super low miles, pristine condition, and its pure stock, unmodified state.

Naturally, there’s an interesting story behind this incredible offering. This motorcycle was purchased new at Bob’s on August 1, 2014. But its new owner was able to enjoy only one short (ecstatic!) Saturday afternoon ride on it when he learned that he was to be transferred out of the country for work — effective immediately! He expected to return to the States within a short time, but career and other responsibilities kept him oversees for most of the next 8 years. Where was his beautiful, brand-new HP4 during all that time? Fortunately, the bike’s owner arranged that it would be kept covered in our climate-controlled storage facility for the duration of his absence. Additionally, he stipulated that the bike be maintained on a “life support” regimen the entire time — and not just being connected to a battery charger. Our Service Department techs were instructed to change the bike’s fluids every one to two years and then give it some “exercise” with an extended test ride to ensure that all systems were performing as designed. It’s those test rides by our certified and trained service staff plus the original owner’s one and only ride on it which account for the scant 247 miles shown on the bike’s odometer. It has not even had its official break-in service, although we have changed its oil and brake fluid numerous times over the last 9 years. No “used” bike could possibly make a better claim to being NEW than this one!
For those who might possibly be unfamiliar with this uncommon BMW model, here is a brief primer: The HP4 is a very-limited edition bike — and not merely for its unique paint and trim. It is, essentially, an S1000RR on steroids. During the few years it was produced, it offered performance-conscious buyers not only exclusivity but phenomenal power, equipment, electronics, handling and speed that eclipsed all other superbikes being made at the time. The BMW HP4 was ahead of its time when it was built and is still an incomparable machine.
What is it like to ride such an elite thoroughbred? Well, the first thing you’ll notice is the crushing acceleration. And if that hasn’t made you too light-headed, you might then notice the high-pitched exhaust howl and the crackle and pop of the quickshifter doing its thing through the gears. But with its clever, semi-active suspension that constantly adjusts the damping as you ride, predictable power delivery and race-grade brakes, you simply can’t ruffle the BMW HP4’s feathers on the road. A choice of four electronic riding modes gives you ascending levels of engine response and suspension stiffness and descending levels of traction control, anti-wheelie and ABS. So, there’s a mode to increase performance and safety to suit any conditions.
Here is an abbreviated list of the HP4’s many FEATURES:
• Dynamic Damping Control (DDC)
• Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) with additional fine adjustment in Slick mode
• IDM race developed ABS
• Lightweight battery
• Tinted windscreen
• LED indicators
• Extended engine spoiler
• Forged aluminum wheels, color matched blue
• Full Titanium Akrapovic exhaust with acoustic valve
• Launch Control
• Instrument cluster with additional features, e.g. DTC fine adjustment, Launch control, DDC configuration menu
• Top yoke inscribed with serial number and HP4 logo
The HP4 didn’t have too many Factory Options available for it simply because it came stock with pretty much everything. Nevertheless, in addition to its Competition Kit, this one came with the optional Heated Grips and a Passenger Kit installed. There is only ONE item installed on this motorcycle that is not stock: a battery tender quick-connect harness. You’ll be glad it’s there.
In preparing this HP4 for sale, our Master Certified BMW technicians determined that the bike’s tires had “aged out.” While the tread depth still measured as practically new, the age of the rubber meant the tires could not reasonably be considered optimally safe. So NEW TIRES were installed (Michelin Power 5, front and rear) and filled with nitrogen to maximize their wear and performance characteristics. The original battery had also aged out (even when kept on trickle charge, a battery will eventually reach its functional lifespan) and so a NEW BATTERY has been installed. They also gave it one more engine oil & filter change, a full brake fluid change, and a final top-to-bottom check of every component and every system. Then, the customary 14-mile test ride to make absolutely sure all its functions and performance attributes measured up. Lastly, it was run through the rigorous Maryland State Inspection which, needless to say, it passed. We’ll say it one more time: this bike is fundamentally brand-new.
This 2014 BMW HP4 comes with two keys and the original owner’s books, and the factory tool kit. Because of its perfect mechanical and cosmetic condition, it is offered as a Bob’s BMW Advantage Certified Bike. That means that, as its next owner, you are entitled to a service loaner at no charge on your first visit, plus numerous other benefits. Here’s your chance to grab the power and break free!
