| ||BMW HP2 Sport - SOLD TO DAVID|
|Engine||1.2 Litre Petrol|
|Specification||With a heavy heart I have decided to sell my cosseted and extremely rare HP2 Sport.
One of the most stunning bikes ever built and no expense spared in its manufacture.
'The headline feature on the Sport was its boxer engine. For the first time in the companyâ€™s history, BMW had built a double overhead cam boxer motor. Not a great technological shock to any other engine manufacturer in the world, but quite a jump for BMW. Then, to showcase this new generation of motor, BMW threw everything they had at the HP2 Sport to create the most powerful boxer ever with a claimed 130bhp and 84.9lb.ft of torque. But the engine was only the startâ€¦
The thing that really set the HP2 Sport aside from any other production BMW was the level of attention and detail lavished on it. BMW refused to cut any corners and as well as full Ohlins suspension the Sport came with carbon bodywork, Brembo brakes, a quickshifter, WSB-spec dash, forged aluminium wheels, a close ratio gearbox, forged pistons and possibly the sexiest top yoke ever fitted to a production bike. BMW even confessed that there was a single man in the Munich factory tasked with milling each and every top yoke by hand, thatâ€™s how trick the HP2 Sport was. The price tag might have been steep, but the HP2 Sport was the first BMW that made sportsbike riders stop and stare in envy. Which was kind of its role in lifeâ€¦
As well as the simply exquisite design and engineering, and the fact the Sport remains the most powerful boxer ever built as the new water-cooled models only make 124bhp, the HP2 Sport should be celebrated because it gave BMW the confidence to build the S1000RR.'
I personally acquired this example in 2015 with 4040m from a collector - the log book shows only two previous owners, however the collector bought it twice so effectively only one previous registered owner (I have the paperwork to prove).
It has always been dry stored and has hardly ever seen the rain - light use only and is in immaculate condition.
It has two sets of keys, the original books and tool kit plus all paperwork and a magazine artlicle.
BMW serviced at PDi, 610m, 2281m, 2803m, 3366m, 3391m, 4040m and 4315m.
It is due a service now on time and not mileage! - and has a recent MOT - this could be done as part of the sale.
It comes with a paddock stand and is wired for a trickle charge plug.
The mileage is warranted and the bike is HPI clear and UK supplied by Chandlers BMW Brighton.
An enjoyable piece of investment exotica - serious enquirers only please.
