Here she is. Bought on Valentine's Day (how poetic, huh?), and now finishing the winter hibernation between other well-loved bikes.

Looking forward to handguards, valve head covers, heated grips and possibly the Akra system if I win the lottery. I feel lucky enough to have gotten this far. . . . Very happy.

I´ve found this definition of the MM

2009 BMW HP2 Megamoto

Overall concept and vehicle properties.

Primal scream therapy.
On the track or the street, there's never been a supermoto like the awesome new HP2 Megamoto. The street version of the monster HP2 Enduro, the Megamoto is armed with tons of power in the form of a 113 hp Boxer motor that spits out 85 lb/ft of torque. Every extra detail has been stripped away to create a a supermoto machine offering thrilling, out of this world excitement in every gear. With a dry weight of just 393 lbs, low center of gravity, inverted Marzocchi forks, Ohlins rear shock, and plenty of wheel travel in both front and rear suspensions, the HP 2 Megamoto's enjoys sharp, supremely responsive handling. An Akrpovic exhaust adds efficiency, while Brembo brakes assure maximum stopping power. On a supermoto machine with this much raw performance, one thing is for sure: those corners don't stand a chance.
High-performance – the HP2 Megamoto.

What happens when the BMW Motorrad engineers are given completely free rein and literally let loose? The result: the HP2 Megamoto - the benchmark for every other bike over the most testing of roads. Over 110 bhp of flat twin power and huge pulling power from the lowest engine speeds, high-quality, racing-style tubular space frame with extreme torsional stiffness. And not an ounce overweight at 178 kg dry weight. Uncompromising, dynamic and exclusive – even when standing still. Thanks to perfect suspension geometry combined with the very finest engine technology, this high performance sports bike never gets out of breath. Incredible stopping power and extreme cornering at lean angles otherwise only offered by superbikes! Once on board, you won’t want to get off. This is an exclusive, limited edition model with a wide range of perfect features specifically conceived for this motorcycle, and a design which treads the fine line between style and ultimate performance.

i´ve found this reports too......






Introducing the Megamoto, BMW is Upgrading the Exclusive HP2 Family with a Dynamic Supermoto Machine.
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 top-class materials. Consistently following the HP2 model line, the Megamoto impressively demonstrates the outstanding dynamism and broad range of the Boxer concept.

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 millimetres or 1.77" in diameter and with 160 millimetres /6.30" spring travel ensures superior wheel guidance at all times. At the rear an Öhlins spring strut with 180 millimetres/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 rims and tyres are also tailored ideally to specific road-going requirements: The front tyre measures 120/70-ZR 17 and runs on a 3.5-inch rim, the rear tyre 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 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 rev counter and a new headlight, as well as the significantly lower seat, give the Megamoto an even higher standard of
everyday riding qualities.

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.



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 uncompromomising 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…



The street version of the mighty HP2 Enduro, the Megamoto is armed with tons of power in the form of a 113 hp Boxer motor that spits out 85 lb/ft of torque. Every extra detail has been stripped away to create a Supermoto machine offering thrilling, out-of-this-world excitement in every gear.

With a dry weight of just 393 lbs, low center of gravity, inverted Marzocchi forks, Öhlins rear shock, and plenty of wheel travel in both front and rear suspensions, the HP2 Megamoto delivers sharp, supremely responsive handling.

An Akrpovic exhaust adds efficiency, while Brembo brakes assure maximum stopping power. Motorcycle enthusiasts also appreciate that a tachometer and a new headlight, as well as the significantly lower seat, give the Megamoto an even higher standard of everyday riding qualities.
