BMW is making a limited edition version of the HP2 Megamoto that was raced at last year’s Pikes Peak hill climb event. Unfortunatly, the Pikes Peak edition HP2 Megamoto will only be available in the Japanese market, and while a considered a “replica” of the Megamoto which BMW Motorrad / BMW USA Sierra raced at the Pikes Peak, it will mimic the race bike in form only. Read: the replica will will feature a race-replica paintjob and stickers, but will remain stock mechanically. Cue hisses and booos.

Only 40 units of the HP2 Pikes Peak Edition will be built, though BMW may consider building more if there is enough demand. The 1,200cc boxer twin will produce the stock 113bhp at 7,500rpm, and the top speed for the 199kg (wet weight) bike will still be around 124mph. Lastly, the Pikes Peak HP2 will cost ¥2.7 million, that’s $27,000 USD, in Japan, but you’ll have to fork over another ¥100,000 if you want ABS brakes.
