At best an oddity that will appeal to a limited number of BMW enthusiasts, IMO.

The HP2 Sport might have a shot as a future classic, especially if it turns out to be the last and greatest high-performance boxer sport bike. Since it's doubtful they can push the existing boxer to much more power than the HP2 Sport, this might be the ultimate.
Turbo might be an option.
