BMW are doing a limited edition HP2 Megamoto for the Japanese market. The bike will be a replica of the Megamoto which BMW Motorrad / BMW USA Sierra raced at the Pikes Peak hill climb event last year. Intially, only 40 units of the HP2 Pikes Peak Edition will be built, though BMW may consider building more if there is enough demand.

The HP2 Pikes Peak will feature race-replica paintjob and stickers but will remain stock mechanically. The 1,200cc boxer twin will still produce 113bhp at 7,500rpm and top speed for the 199kg (wet weight) bike will be around 200km/h. The bike will cost 2.7 million Yen (US$27,000) in Japan and you’d have to pay 2.82 million Yen if you opt for ABS.
