The BMW HP2 Sport Oberdan is a sports boxer engined motorcycle. It was produced by BMW Motorad from 2008-2012. This model was a successor to BMW R1200S. The HP2 Sport was more powerful and lighter than the R1200S. The BMW HP2 Sport didn’t continue after the 2012 model year. It was overweight, under powered and has clearance problems from the air-cooled boxer engine. The Italian designer has imagined a machine which benefits from the BMW’S cooled liquid version of the boxer twin-engine. It’s the same lump which powers the current R bikes line. Like the BMW R1200GS adventure tourer. It would give the new BMW HP2 Sport Oberdan north of 130 horsepower. With a modern chassis and a diet most likely the machine can see some wet weight south of original 488lbs wet weight. Already the BMW’S motorcycle line is impacted.
BMW HP2 Sport Oberdan looks Really Amazing
So this type kind of machine will have somewhere in slot in between the R1200RS and S1000RR. Though there can be another route also by looking at the BMW’s R nine T platform. This means that this type of concept will not benefit from the BMW’s cooled liquid boxer engine. On the other hand, it can also mean that a modular and an affordable package for the BMW HP2 Sport Oberdan.
The R nineT is targeting a more focused lifestyle customer. It can make an interesting point to launch the BMW HP2 Sport Oberdan sport bike. Mainly the one which was focused towards the price customers who are eager for customization. It is an interesting experiment. You have already seen the last of HP2 line. Hence, we hope that BMW keeps up with the HP series of machines. It’s around 2 model years since we saw the last HP4 in its offering. So this BMW HP2 Sport Oberdan will be quite interesting.
