BMW HP4 named "Best Sports Motorcycle over 750 cc" - BMW Motorrad celebrates eight podium places in the readers' vote for the "Best Sports Motorcycles 2014"

Many readers and consumers in the Middle East and Egypt simply do not know how popular and how good BMW motorcycles are, even though BMW motorcycles are becoming more and more popular among the police forces across the Middle East and can be seen quite often patrolling through the streets, like it is the case in Egypt and the UAE.

This becomes clear and obvious when we see how many awards the different best-selling BMW motorcycles win in the key-markets, such as Germany.

Last week BMW Motorrad proved this one more time, when it won a total of eight podium positions in the categories "Sport", "Naked", "Enduro" and "Allrounder", achieving by this an excellent result in the readers' vote for the "Best Sports Motorcycles 2014" run by sports motorcycle magazine PS.

Readers voted for the BMW HP4 as the "Best Sports Motorcycle over 750 cc". In the brand ranking, BMW Motorrad achieved an outstanding second place.

The BMW HP4 and the S 1000 RR were placed in a superb first and third place respectively in the category "Best Sports Motorcycle over 750 cc". PS readers thereby recognised these two models' outstanding combination of 4-cylinder performance, Race ABS and Dynamic Traction Control DTC as well as the semiactive suspension technology Dynamic Damping Control DDC for supersports-oriented riding dynamics. The HP4 also finished second in the generic category "Best Sports Motorcycle".

Represented in this vote for the first time, the BMW Motorrad models S 1000 R and R nineT achieved further podium positions of second and third respectively in the category "Best Naked Bike". By voting the S 1000 R into second place, participating PS readers showed their appreciation of this model's consistent design as a sporty roadster with the very highest level of driving dynamics. The third place for the R nineT reflects the high level of popularity obtained by the bike's synthesis of classic design, painstakingly detailed workmanship and cutting-edge technology among the sports-oriented readership.

The new BMW R 1200 GS finished second in the category "Best Enduro/Supermoto", while the well-established K 1300 S demonstrated its qualities as a long-distance sports machine in the "Best Sports Allrounder".

BMW Motorrad achieved an outstanding second place in the ranking "Best Motorcycle Brand".

Stephan Schaller, Head of BMW Motorrad, on the results of the readers' vote:

"I am glad to see that our motorcycles - especially the R nineT - have achieved such a high level of popularity among a group of readers oriented especially towards sports machines. I should like to thank PS readers most sincerely for their support. I am particularly happy to see that our top models HP4 and
S 1000 RR once again performed impressively in the "Sport" category with their innovative technologies."
