There's a thread running on UKGS'er wondering how many HP2's have been built. Using the VIN search / decoder on RealOEM.com, I tracked a fair bit of information, that appears pretty accurate. I'd be interested to know if anyone's VIN number falls outside of the ranges I've found though.

From what I've found it seems around 3,000 HP2 Enduro's were built, and around 1,400 HP2 Megamoto's built, with only 85 of thse being US spec.

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do...&kind=M&arch=0

HP2 Enduro -

The earliest Euro spec HP2 Enduro VIN number I can find is - ZL00000 showing as an August 2004 build date.

The latest Euro spec HP2 Enduro VIN number recognised on RealOEM.com is - ZL02516 showing as an August 2006 build date.

The earliest US spec HP2 Enduro VIN number I can find is - ZL10000 showing as an August 2004 build date.

The latest US spec HP2 Enduro frame number recognised is - ZL10392 showing as an August 2006 build date.

That would imply just over 2,500 Euro spec HP2 Enduro's built and another 393 US spec bikes, bringing the total HP2E's to around 3,000.


HP2 Megamoto -

The earliest Euro spec HP2 Megamoto VIN number I can find is ZT95000 showing as an August 2006 build date.

The latest Euro spec HP2 Megamoto frame number recognised is - ZT96363 showing as a July 2008 build date.

The records only go up to August 2008, so there may be more Megamoto's, but would imply just over 1,300 Euro Megamato's built so far.

Based on Naked Rider's US VIN number, the earliest US spec HP2 Megamoto I can find is ZK99500 showing as an August 2006 build date.

The latest US spec VIN HP2 Megamoto I can find is ZK99585 showing as a March 2008 build date.

That makes only 85 US spec HP2 Megagmoto's, so less than 1,400 in total, or less than half the number of Enduro's.

As mentioned earlier, RealOEM.com's database only goes up to August 2008, so there could be a few more Megamoto's, but unlikely to be any more Enduro's.

My VIN is within your range. Yep, took me 5 min.

Got any data on the HP2 Sport?

I think it's a bit early for numbers on the HP2 Sport as so few seem to have been delivered yet. Turns out the data on the HP2 Enduro is absolutely accurate, 2910 built, of which 393 are US spec.

Another post on UKGS'er found this document from BMW confirming the number - http://www.bmweducation.co.uk/downloads/online-resources/AllMotorcycles2008.pdf

That being so, I can see no reason to doubt the Megamoto numbers, which looks as if US spec production stopped in March 2008. I suspect that there won't be many more Euro spec bikes either, once Sport production started.

The rarity of our bikes is put into perspective when you look at the almost 76,000 R1150GS's produced.

Having both a Megamoto and an HP2 Sport the more rare these are the better for me.

I know I'm the only one in my area with either of these.

I told my wife about this thread and the one on UKGSR and she said "good, maybe you'll keep these ones for a while".

I've never seen another Megamoto on the road, seen a few Enduro's about though.

I know Dave T on UKGS'er has one and he's about 25 miles away, that must be the closest.

Like you say, good news as far as I'm concerned

ADV Top Box

I have just added the provision to mount the ADV top box using the bracket (P/N : 71607696292) from the 800GS and lower part of the Touratech rack.

Touratech rack and with top plate removed:


800GS bracket mated to the Touratech bracket. Need to drill a couple of holes for the M8 bolts (supplied with the GS bracket) and the bolts need to be shortened.


Done :



Added some cushion (tap rubber washer sandwiched between 2 metal washers) between the GS and Touratech brackets at the 4 bolting points:

At least you don't have to worry about going over doing wheelies!

You need to look closer at the fuel tank he's using!
