BMW HP2 Sport “SpeedCruiser”
OK. I’m not going to beat around the bush. Tomorrow is the big day. After three months of planning, tomorrow is the first annual Pipeburn Meat Burn & Burn. What the hell does this have to do with this beautiful motorbike we see before us, you ask? Well if you’d just have let me finish what I was saying I’d have told you that it’s now 11:00pm Sydney time and, quite frankly, I’ve gotta get some drool-on-pillow time if I’m going to ride my bike and stay awake tomorrow. Therefore this post is going to be brief. Real brief.
This rather sweet BM is the product of a three-way collaboration between Germany’s Wunderlich BMW tuning house, their fellow countrymen Procar MC (a major Cologne BMW dealership), and the super talented french designer Nicolas Petite. It’s main intention is to reinterpret the original BMW design to make it “a more dynamic and fun riding machine with redefined handling, power delivery and exclusivity.”
Marketing speak aside, the bike looks entirely different to its original donor shape but apparently hasn’t had any major changes to the frame or other main components, so owners can readily take it back to stock should they want to sell it or if they tire of owning the best-looking BMW the company has never made. You can see more shots of the bike here and here, and while you’re at it, why not check out some more of Nicolas’ great work on his portfolio website. Enjoy – I’m off to bed.
