The 1170cc boxer flat twin is T taken from the R1200 S and fitted with twin overhead cams in place of the stock single cam.The twin plug heads are ditched for a single sparkplug sparking each cylinder, and the compact combustion chamber is more compact. The result is more ground clearance than an R Series can hope for and a top end that keeps on pulling to the 9500-rev limit. Tapping all that performance — in any gear —will invite undue interest from passing police cars, so discretion is called for. Not that there is anything discrete about the HP2. The boxer’s cylinder heads jut out of the otherwise full fairing, showing plenty of carbon fibre, and HE boxer-engined HP2 Sport was the most track-focused bike in the BMW garage. Then sweepers and a genuine hair pin-hugging superbike rival. Toss in race-inspired clutch- less gear upshifts, Ohlins shocks to soak up the bumps and massive dual 320mm discs with fourspot Brembo callipers, calibrated with an optional anti-skid braking system to wipe off the speed, and it’s an impressive package. the stainless-steel underseat exhaust has enough pop, bubble and snarl to turn heads with even the smallest throttle blip. That blip is when the boxer gives a characteristic toss of its heads. The bike twitches to the right every time you roll the power on. It is also apparent in some low-speed, low-gear corners, but the sensation is more quirky than intrusive. This is good, because the HP2 adores corners. The Michelin Racetec rubber and light weight make it a delight through open However, the price may make the HP2 Sport one of the S1000 RR’s first victims. BMW Motorrad Australia is hoping to bring the 142kW superbike in about the mid-$20,000 mark. Say $27,000, and it’s still about $8000 cheaper thananHP2, yet should beat it on the street and ride days. BMWsays the HP2 will retain its status as the fastest boxerengine bike and be a collector’s item for that reason. BMW Motorrad general manager Cameron Cuthill went out take anything away from the HP2 Sport, which remains an awesome performance machine, if with a characteristic boxer bent. ‘ of his way to secure extra stock, and the fact that 30-odd customers were prepared to wait up to 18 months for this machine — despite knowing the S1000 RR was coming — shows BMW knows its market much better than I do. ’ That’s not to 1 SUZUKI 1999HAYABUSA Good cond $9,600 ono.
