BMW’S forthcoming Le Mans race bike has been spotted testing at Cartagena in Spain – and alongside two racers appears to be something closer to the road-going HP2 Sport road-going superbike.

The two racers in the foreground are identical to the machine revealed here last week, but the third appears to have a different exhaust, which is much more neatly blended into the bodywork.

During the test, the bikes are claimed to have lapped just a couple of seconds off the pace of superbike-spec racers.
