BMW MOTORRAD WORLDSBK TEAM CHOOSE ALL-NEW HM QUICKSHIFTER-AUTOBLIPPER FOR 2019!
 
The SMR run BMW Motorrad WorldSBK squad of Tom Sykes and Markus Reiterberger have chosen the all-new HM Quickshifter-Auto Blipper for the upcoming 2019 World Superbike season. Running on the brand new BMW S1000RR, the cutting-edge unit will provide the team with more accurate and consistent gearshifts as well as being fully adjustable for sensitivity. It is now also the official product recommend by BMW Motorrad.

 

The new-look BMW Motorrad WorldSBK team of Tom Sykes and Markus Reiterberger kicked off their 2019 World Superbike campaign earlier this week with a test on the all-new BMW S1000RR at Jerez. Alongside giving the new machine its 2019 debut, the duo also became the first World Superbike team to utilise the new HM Quickshifter-Auto Blipper.

Developed as a direct replacement for a traditional ‘up and down’ Quickshifter, which in many cases can be unreliable, the HM unit utilises an ultra-sensitive Strain Gauge; meaning no moving parts that could cause a mechanical failure. Providing both riders with more accurate, slicker and consistent gearshifts will enable them to drop lap times knowing exactly what their gear changes will be like, lap after lap. The unit is also fully adjustable for sensitivity, meaning the riders can set it up exactly to their preference. Alongside being a technical partner to BMW Motorrad, the new HM Quickshifter-Auto Blipper has been chosen as an official recommended product for the S1000RR.

 

The Quickshifter-Auto Blipper made its racing debut last season, helping power fellow BMW rider Keith Farmer to the prestigious Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship title. The unit was also successfully used by the Mototech Yamaha Endurance World Championship team as well as the Reactive Parts Ducati […]

HM QUICKSHIFTER-AUTOBLIPPER DEVELOPED FOR LATEST ‘SMART’ SUPERBIKES

HM QUICKSHIFTER-AUTOBLIPPER DEVELOPED FOR LATEST ‘SMART’ SUPERBIKES
 
HM Quickshifter, the world-renowned leader in gear shift technology, has developed a cutting edge ‘Quickshift-Auto Blipper’ for the latest generation superbikes for more accurate and consistent gearshifts.

 

Although the system can have a significant effect on racetimes for both racers and trackday addicts, road riders can enjoy also a slicker, more accurate feel going both up and down the gearbox, shift after shift!

The HM Quickshifter Auto Blipper was proven in the red-hot competition of the Pirelli National Superstock Championship this year by the Tyco BMW team, helping Keith Farmer to a hard-fought title.

Developed as a direct replacement for bikes which have an ‘up and down’ quickshifter as original equipment, the HM version offers vast improvements over the OE fitment. The crucial difference is the use of an ultra-sensitive ‘strain gauge’, as opposed to the simple OE switch and spring.

The OE systems have in many cases been shown to be unreliable, whereas the HM unit has no moving parts for mechanical failure. Riders of all levels also report a lack of ‘feel’ for positive upshifts and downshifts losing much of the benefit of a quickshifter while the replacement HM unit is fully adjustable for sensitivity.

Developed to simply ‘plug and play’, the device fits directly into the existing Quickshifter port meaning the unit could not be easier to install. Suitable for both road or race (standard or reverse direction) gearshifting, it also fits both standard and aftermarket rearsets.

Alongside Tyco BMW, the HM Quickshifter- Auto Blipper has been successfully utilised by the Mototech Yamaha Endurance World Championship team and Steve Heneghan on his Reactive Parts Ducati V4S.

HM Quickshifter General Manager Ben Varley explained “We’re excited to be able to offer the benefits […]
