Introducing new motorcycle concepts with an even
higher level of emotion, BMW Motorrad is proudly
presenting the new Megamoto: Based on the BMW 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
Consistently following the HP2
model line, the Megamoto impressively demonstrates the
outstanding dynamism and broad range of the Boxer
Weighing less than 200 kilos or 440 lb in road trim,
the Megamoto offers significantly more power and torque
than even the powerful HP2 Enduro.
And to meet the
specific demands of sports surfing on country roads as
well as the toughest conditions on the race track, the
extra-firm, lowered suspension comes with truly
outstanding components: At the front a fully adjustable,
fine-response upside-down fork from Marzocchi with
sliding tubes measuring an impressive 45 millimeters (1.77") in diameter and with 160
millimeters (6.30") spring
travel ensures superior wheel guidance at all times.
the rear an Öhlins spring strut with 180 millimeters (7.09")
spring travel also adjustable in its basic spring
setting, damper inbound and rebound stroke, likewise
ensures a firm and muscular stance on the road.
The wheels and tires are also tailored ideally to
specific road-going requirements: The front tire
measures 120/70-ZR 17 and runs on a 3.5-inch rim, the
rear tire is 180/55 ZR 17 in size and runs on a 5.5-inch
rim in the usual Supersports dimension.
To make even better use of the stable suspension with
its great potential, 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 machine. Good news for the rational
enthusiast is that both a tachometer and a new
headlight, as well as the significantly lower seat, give
the Megamoto an even higher standard of everyday riding
The very looks of the new machine and the choice of
the most exclusive materials again help to make the BMW
HP2 Megamoto absolutely fascinating and emotional in
every respect. The tank cover and headlight fairing, for
example, are both made in part of carbon fiber.
The double-chamber Akrapovic exhaust system gives the
new Megamoto a powerful and throaty sound very
appropriate for a machine of this kind. And at the same
time the exhaust system not only helps to boost engine
power, but also refines the overall image and style of
BMW Motorrad's new Supermoto.
In re-configuring the
Boxer power unit so full of character, the engineers
responsible for the new machine have focused in
particular on even more spontaneous response and supreme
torque at low and medium engine speeds.
With its very active, front wheel-oriented seating
position, its smooth balance and impressive ergonomic
qualities, the Megamoto will certainly appeal to all
connoisseurs, individualists and pleasure-conscious
riders within the segment of dynamic motorcyclists.
Simply because this new machine offers a brand-new
interpretation of Sheer Riding Pleasure and light
handling, making it a truly uncompromising riding
machine in all its features: light, powerful, agile and,
in particular, very exclusive.
This exclusivity is ensured by the limited production
figures of the BMW HP2 Megamoto, since the machine is
built by hand to a large extent and uses very exclusive
materials. So the individualist opting for the Megamoto,
this explosive combination of high-tech and powerful
character, of emotion and function, should also be
willing and able to take a bold but wise decision…
