New 2016 HP2 LC Sport
"Circulating the net is this drawing of a BMW Boxer sport bike created by the German BMW aftermarket tuner/parts supplier Wunderlich. The photo coincides with speculation by the German magazine Motorrad that BMW may soon introduce a Boxer twin sport machine to go along with its ferocious inline four S1000RR, which has been a big hit on the showroom floor.
Of course, unlike the engine powering the now discontinued HP2 Sport, the current Boxer motor employs at least partial liquid cooling, meaning the 132, or so, horsepower put out by the old HP2 could conceivably reach into the mid 140s with a tuned version of the new engine. Nothing to concern Ducati, of course, but a pretty healthy output for a BMW Boxer. If the bike materializes as a 2016 model, expect to see it unveiled at one of the big shows this Fall. Stay tuned."
