A very pleasing conclusion to a successful BMW HP2 racing season!

Gerhard Forster HP2
Gerhard Forster: "At first I had to get used to the power of the HP2 again, but the more selective it got, the getter I was able to get some drive out of the bike´s incredible traction.

Pure off-road pleasure in these conditions!
