The 2010 BMW HP2 Sport Motorcycle

2010 BMW HP2 Sport

The sportiest and most powerful series production flat twin Motorcycle of all time, the HP2 Sport Motorcycle continues into model year 2010 with the addition of a special Motorsport Edition. 

The HP2 Sport Motorsport Edition continues to be powered by the familiar flat twin engine equipped with double overhead camshafts delivering 133 hp at 8750 rpm, but emulating the look of the BMW Motorrad Motorsport factory racers, featuring fairing, fuel tank, seat bench, front mudguard and engine spoiler painted in the BMW Motorsport colours Alpine White, Lupine Blue metallic and Magma Red.

Outstanding race results are inexorably linked with BMW Motorrad’s flat twin “Boxer” models. So it is an obvious step to build a high-end version! The result is the BMW HP2 Sport: the uncompromising realisation of the 24-Hour Endurance racer as a road machine.

100 per cent motor racing genes, licensed for the road. An exclusive sports machine by BMW Motorrad for motor racing connoisseurs and 2-cylinder enthusiasts which puts racing expertise into serial production – with power and authenticity.

With an incredible air/oil-cooled 133 bhp and 115 Nm – a unique performance for a serial production “Boxer”! 

The BMW HP2 Sport Motorcycle caused quite a stir with its race track appea­rances – rarely has a 2-cylinder flat twin bike caused the competition so much trouble, it even outdistanced many a 4-cylinder bike.

In the last 24-hour race at the Oschersleben Speedweek, both machines entered in the race finished in the overall top 10.

One reason for this perfor­mance is the DOHC cylinder head*, which is being used for the first time in this fascinatingly engineered enthusiast’s motorcycle. 

For all ambitious sports riders and keen flat twin fans a unique limited edition of 400 is now to be produced: derived from the paint finish of the Endurance machine, it is finished in the colours Alpine White /Indigo Blue / HP Red. As in the racing machine, the rims are finished in Indigo Blue at the front and Alpine White at the rear. Otherwise all the familiar specifications apply, including the material – leading to a sensational dry weight of 178 kg – and the impressive performance figures. In short: take the opportunity to put it away right now – or else use it for what it was built for and order a second set of rims for the rain tyres along with it! ­

* DOHC = Double OverHead Camshaft, double overhead camshaft for each cylinder.

With a staggering 130 horsepower, the HP 2 Sport Bike features the most powerful Boxer engine ever designed by BMW Motorrad. For the first time ever, double overhead camshafts are included in our famous opposed twin cylinder motor, kicking out even more revs.

Making the HP2 Sport even more track-ready is new Quickshifter technology, which means faster gear changes without having to chop the throttle or use the clutch.

with Added fully adjustable Ohlins sport front and rear suspension, Radial mounted Brembo Monobloc brakes, a lightweight carbon fiber aerodynamic fairing, not to mention forged racing wheels and tires and a MotoGP-inspired cockpit that computes lap times and other racing data, and the result is one of the most advanced sport bikes to ever scorch the tarmac.

As an option BMW Motorrad offers ABS especially adapted for sports use. An additional pressure sensor in the front brake circuit permits more sensitive brake regulation and prevents the control unit from releasing the front brake too early when weight is taken off the rear wheel suddenly. The ABS can also be deactivated for racetrack use.

The BMW HP2 Sport Motorsport is now available for order and limited to 400 units. The price in Germany is € 22,300.- incl. 19% VAT.
