The HP2 recently won the prologue stage of the Austrian Erzberg Race with rider Simo Korssi.
The factory themselves will enter bikes in various championships to prove the bike’s capabilities.
The styling is similar to the F650GS, with the body panels being plastic colour-impregnated items.
BMW Motarrad has broken cover with the emergence of a hot-rodded R12000GS called the HP2.
The bikes will be hand-built; therefore they will carry a premium price tag.
The BMW HP-2s all-new chassis has been put on an extreme diet, helping the HP2 boast a claimed dry weight of just 386 pounds.
To justify the High Performance tag, the engine balancer has been removed trading smoothness for performance.
The Paralever swingarm is 1.18 inch longer than the GS's and works in concert with an all-new air-based spring strut to provide rear suspension.
The HP2 sports a leaner look than its Boxer siblings. One noticeable difference is in the rear with a shorter rear-end silencer and the absence of luggage.
BMW entered two of its new HP2 Enduros in this year's Baja 1000, with the 12X bike of BMW Team Baja Bound finishing third in the Pro-Open Class.
