The second product from BMW Motorrad’s â€˜High Performance line has hit the showrooms this month in the UK – the BMW HP2 Megamoto. It is designed a street-legal twin-cylinder Supermoto, powered by a tuned version of BMWs iconic Boxer-twin engine, pumping out an impressive 113hp with 115Nm of torque.
The use of lightweight materials such as carbon fibre gives the BMW HP2 Megamoto a weight of just 179kg, giving the bike an impressive power to weight ratio. A fully adjustable, top of the range Ã–hlins shock absorber ensures consistently stable rear-end feedback, whilst accurate steering is achieved with sturdy, upside-down 45mm Marzocchi front forks, and what holds it all together is a hand-built trellis frame chassis.
Tony Jakeman, BMW Motorrads Marketing Manager said, â€œThe Megamoto has been designed and built for those riders who strive to be different and want a top-end, high-quality motorcycle that has class leading performance, that is fast, fun and innovative. The bike typifies BMW Motorrads brand shift to producing an ever more diverse range of premium performance motorcycles that appeal to connoisseur riders.â€
