BMW Reveals Pricing Of
Woodcliff Lake, NJ - The BMW HP2
Sport, arriving soon at US BMW Motorrad retailers, will have a
manufacturer's suggested retail price of $25,375 (excluding
taxes, license, options, and handling charge) and a destination
charge of $495. The high-performance (HP) two (2)-cylinder Boxer
is the third motorcycle in the HP model range customized to meet
the requirements of the ambitious sport rider.
The sportiest, most powerful and
lightest Boxer ever manufactured, the HP2 Sport follows in the
footsteps of the HP2 Enduro and the HP2 Megamoto. It features
numerous exclusive details, previously restricted to racing,
that were never before seen in series production BMWs.
Technology such as the self-supporting and aerodynamically
optimized fairings made completely of CFK, the gear shift
assistant, a dashboard similar to that used in the MotoGP, the
forged aluminum wheels and brakes with radially mounted calipers
make the HP2 unmistakably athletic on both country roads and
The most striking difference
between the BMW HP2 Sport from the endurance racing Boxer is the
brand new cylinder heads: each of the double overhead camshafts
(DOHC) uses a drag lever to actuate the valves that are larger
than those on the BMW R 1200 S. Further modifications, such as
the flow-optimized intake and outlet, new forged pistons and
adapted connecting rod, help the engine to achieve the necessary
higher output compared to the basic engine.
A new stainless
steel exhaust system is placed below the engine for the first
time, keeping the lower area of the motorcycle extremely slim
for greater freedom of movement for a "hanging off" riding
position. Although designed for racing prowess, the BMW HP2
Sport does not forego the safety benefits of ABS. A
sophisticated antilock brake system, specially adapted to the
HP2 Sport, is available as an option and is configured so that
it can be deactivated for the racetrack.
Following the BMW Motorrad
Motorsport design, the carbon-fiber bodywork of the HP2 Sport is
partially painted in Alpine White, while the engine spoiler
carries the two-tone "HP2" lettering and the lattice frame and
wheels are painted in the BMW Motorrad color of Motorsport Blue.
