2007 BMW HP2 Megamoto
2007 Ranges | 2006 Ranges | 2005 Ranges | 2004 Ranges
BMW Motorrad is extending the exclusive HP2 Family with a dynamic new Supermoto Machine, called the Megamoto. Based on the HP2 Enduro, this unique motorcycle will rank right at the top among all street-legal two-cylinder Supermotos thanks to its supreme performance and the use of top-quality materials. Consistently following the HP2 model line, the Megamoto impressively demonstrates the outstanding dynamism and broad range of the Boxer concept.
With a dry weight of just 178 kilos, the Megamoto offers significantly more power and torque than even the powerful HP2 Enduro. And to meet the specific demands of sports riding on country roads, as well as the toughest conditions on the racetrack, the extra-firm, lowered suspension comes with truly outstanding components.
At the front end there are fully adjustable, fine-response upside-down Marzocchi forks with sliding tubes measuring an impressive 45 millimetres or 1.77" in diameter, while 160 millimetres of spring travel ensures superior wheel guidance at all times. At the rear an Öhlins spring strut with 180 millimetres of spring travel is adjustable for preload, inbound damping and rebound strokes.
The wheels and tyres are also tailored ideally to specific road-going requirements: The front tyre measures 120/70-ZR 17 and runs on a 3.5-inch rim, while the rear tyre is 180/55 ZR 17 in size and runs on a 5.5-inch rim.
To make even better use of the high-quality suspension, the new BMW HP2 Megamoto comes with a second front brake disc ensuring stopping power and deceleration absolutely comparable to a modern road-going sports bike. And good news for the 'practical' enthusiast is that a tachometer, a new headlight and a significantly lower seat give the Megamoto an even higher standard of everyday riding comfort.
The very looks of the new machine and the use of the most exclusive materials again help to make the BMW HP2 Megamoto a true premium product. The tank cover and headlight fairing, for example, are both made in part out of carbon-fibre. The double-chamber Akrapovic exhaust system gives the new Megamoto a powerful and throaty sound very appropriate for a machine of this kind, as well as helping to boost engine power. In re-configuring the Boxer power unit, the engineers responsible for the new machine have focused in particular on even more instant response and supreme torque at low and medium engine speeds.
With its active, front wheel-oriented seating position, smooth balance and impressive ergonomic qualities, the Megamoto will certainly appeal to all connoisseurs, individualists and thrill-seeking riders, who will appreciate its light weight, powerful engine characteristics, dynamic handling and road holding capabilities - not to mention its exclusivity. This exclusiveness is ensured by the limited production figures of the BMW HP2 Megamoto, since the machine is largely built by hand.
