In light of the positive response towards the front lip from the community, RKP set out to design a lip that improved upon BMW Motorsport’s design. With only a few of the lips made specifically for the MotoGP safety vehicles, RKP’s design of the lip had to be done from the ground up.
The upper portion of the M2 MotoGP lip was made by BMW Motorsport to contour the lower body line of the front bumper with recessed areas to accommodate the M Performance front bumper winglets. During the design of the RKP version, the winglets were integrated into the profile for a cleaner single piece appearance. In addition to the upper portion of the lip, there was a fixed lower splitter designed similar to the appearance of the original.
The end product is a solid, one piece construction for the upper lip and lower splitter respectively, using only non-commercial, high-grade full FRP sheets with a black gel coat. The lower splitter retains its light weight nomex core clamshell design, which is moisture resistant in case of external perforation. With the process being done in the same facility from start to finish, part validation and vehicle fitment procedures can be conducted with ease, assuring quality of the final product.
