I think you could count the number on your hands and toes ,I saw one in an auction last year in the UK £15000 and there was a buyers fee on top of that so times that by about 1.3 and that’ll give $,and i’ve Seen one at a BM dealer for a lot more than that.

Their was an enduro version that came with SM wheels that also goes for good money but not in the Mega Moto league.

Cheapest ones i’ve Seen have been in Australia.

Just found one in the UK at a BMdealer 2007 $26000

I think the Enduro version was supposed to come with two different wheelsets? 17or 18/21 and 17/17.

Cheers

I think I'd read that there were only around 75 MM's imported to the US. I've got a friend who bought one new and has never ridden it. It still has something like 7 miles on it. I've been trying to get him to sell it to me but he doesn't need the money and just likes looking at it.

Iíve actually ridden one not all that far but quickly realised it felt very non BMW

The irony in 09 I was offered one for less than half of what they are selling for now because they were considered too quirky with a small tank

But for those that have an aversion to riding the same bike as everyone else thatís what I would be looking for.

I would have put more miles on it if I lived in an area that was more suited to sport riding. I've got a 40 mile ride to the first worthwhile curve from my home in the middle of Houston.
True, but load up a backpack and you can sport-tour for at least a couple hundred miles over the course of a couple days... makes for a great weekend workout. I've done it multiple times over the years. Maybe that's why I'm cresting 15k miles already. It'd be more, but who knew raising kids would take up so much time?!?!

Yes, I believe that's correct.

There were 106 Megamotos that came into the US, I had one but is now gone after a guy on his phone in a truck rear-ended me and it "tacoed" the frame so it had to be totaled. I also have the enduro, and use it for commuting with the super moto tires, it's almost as fun as the Mega. I bought the Sport from a guy that kept it in his living room for 7 years, so I got it with 15 miles on it in 2015. It is super fun at the track, the mirrors do need the up grade. The engine is smooth and growls, and the bike does all I need it to do. I'm a bit embarrassed to say, but I've only put 1900 miles on it. I've put 60k on the HP2E, and want to keep the Sport for art and track days and some short twisty riding around here.
