Vance & Hines Unveils FP4, Its Next Generation Engine Control Module Tuner

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., February 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Vance and Hines today announced the FP4, the next generation of its industry-leading Engine Control Module (ECM) flash tuning products. The FP4 features an all-new PCB, case, firmware and mobile app, all of which were designed and manufactured in Santa Fe Springs, California. The FP4 brings greater control and performance tuning to Harley-Davidson Touring and Softail models, as it is the only app-driven tuner on the market.

“We know riders want the best setup for their Harley-Davidson, just like we do for our race bikes,” said Vance & Hines president. mike kennedy. “Think about it, the stock ECM on the bike is set for a stock exhaust and factory air intake. When you make any changes, like adding an exhaust or a different air intakes, you need the right setting to get the full performance potential from your engine.”

The heart of the Vance & Hines FP4 is the ability to dial in the bike’s ECM tuning to match the performance upgrades a rider adds to their bike, such as an aftermarket exhaust system and high-flow air intake. . FP4 owners can choose from an extensive library of Vance & Hines maps created in the company’s dynamic tuning lab at California. Vance & Hines maps are model specific and are created using actual parts on real motorcycles, not projections made from previous testing. Owners can further develop these maps with a number of customization options available in the FP4 app.

The Vance & Hines FP4 unit has a slimmer, smaller housing and longer wiring harness than its predecessor, Fuelpak FP3, providing more options for locating hardware on the bike. It features simplified LEDs on the unit, which display the communication between the unit and the bike. The FP4 also uses the new red OBD II connector, now standard on 2021 and 2022 Harley-Davidson Touring and Softail models.

The Vance & Hines FP4’s smartphone app is one of the device’s vastly improved features. It has a new look, is easier to use and is faster than ever. The user experience is significantly improved with a redesigned navigation bar, providing easy access to the FP4’s main tuning functions. The app’s live data capability includes a new gauge layout and provides more data to the rider than any other ECM tuner on the market.

The new Performance Data feature is a data logger that allows users to take a lap and then review the data collected from that lap. This feature also uses the driver’s phone’s built-in GPS to plot and store the trip route, allowing drivers to analyze and compare the collected data to the actual road and highway situations at the time.

Vance & Hines FP4 User Support takes customer service to a whole new level. Riders can use the app to directly upload their map to the FP4 customer service website to receive hands-on technical support, while speaking to a representative by phone, email or chat. This support for owners is unprecedented in the powersports industry.

“With FP4, it’s as easy as plug in, set up, ride. It’s the mantra that has guided us in developing the next generation of our industry-leading ECM tuner,” Kennedy continued. “The FP4 is the most intuitive, easy to understand and user-friendly tuner on the market, and we are really proud of it.”

The Vance & Hines FP4 is compatible with 2021 and 2022 model year Harley-Davidson Touring and Softail motorcycles. Suggested detail is $459.99.
