2007 BMW HP2 Megamoto: BMW ups the ante again!


100 horsepower supermotard? That's the new BMW HP2 Megamoto!

Last year, BMW let loose with the awesome HP2 off-roader. This time, it’s the equally amazing HP2 Megamoto, which continues BMW’s continuing and big time image makeover. The German company is getting really, really serious about high performance motorcycles and seems to be firing on all fronts right now!

The HP2 Megamoto is essentially a street-optimised version of the HP2 dirtbike. It uses 17-inch wheels and street-oriented rubber, high-spec Ohlins suspension and an Akrapovic exhaust system. The Megamoto is fitted with BMW’s air/oil-cooled, 1170cc, four-valve-per-cylinder, Boxer-twin, which makes 105 horsepower at 7,000rpm. Shaft-drive, six-speed gearbox, Paralever rear suspension, and a tubular spaceframe chassis complete the package.

Should be interesting to watch the BMW HP2 Megamoto go head to head against the forthcoming Ducati Hypermotard!


If the HP2 off-roader is anything to go by, this new Megamoto should be an amazing bike!
