Find it hard to believe BMW could make a thoroughbred sportsbike out of an engine and chassis design we all thought was best suited to tourers and sport tourers?

So did we. But we should all stand corrected with the launch of the BMW HP2 Sport.

Of course you can make a decent sports bike out of nearly anything with money, this is the primary reason for the BMW HP2’s proposed £14,000+ price – although the finished price officially still hasn’t been set according to BMW Motorrad of Germany – the other is it carries some of the best components money will buy.

Check out these exclusive photographs of the BMW HP2 Sport at the launch at the Ascari circuit in Spain.
