2012 BMW HP2 Sport

The BMW HP2 Sport has successfully made a stir in the industry, thanks to the racing dynamics it now espouses.

Of the many features of the HP2 Sport, it bears pointing out that the bike comes with an air/oil-cooled flat twin four stroke DOHC (with radial valves) engine that’s impressive by all accounts. The engine configuration also has a cylinder head cover made of carbon fiber with replaceable valve cover guards, a complete stainless steel exhaust system, a six-speed gearbox, a digital engine management with twin-spark ignition system, a double oil cooler, and a closed loop 3-way catalytic converter with oxygen sensor.

The HP2 Sport also has a slew of state-of-the-art features that will be a boon to its owners. It’s got a low beam headlamp height adjustment, an LED rear indicator, hazard warning flasher, a permanent headlamp beam, digital race instruments with 2D cluster, and an electronic immobilizer.

Last, the HP2 Sport doesn’t complete its package without the prevalent use of carbon fiber. In this case, the lightweight material is all over the bike, including the front and the rear, the self supporting body work, and the engine spoiler made of carbon fiber.

Visordown ---- "Is BMW’s HP2 Sport the ultimate Boxer, or just an over-priced showman? We spent a day on the road with the £15,000 BMW that floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee"

Autoblog ---- "The new HP2 Sport appears fully competitive with the best from Italy and Japan. To prove it can compete, BMW developed this bike through racing in the form of the World Endurance Championship, and it performed quite well, especially for the company’s first effort with a new bike"
