When introduced, the 2008 BMW HP2 Sport was lightest most powerful and lightest Boxer ever manufactured. It also featured numerous technologies previously restricted to racing bikes.

The BMW HP2 Sport features a fairing made completely of carbon fiber, a quick shifter (which allows shifting without accelerator release and clutch disengagement), a dashboard similar to that used on MotoGP bikes, and forged aluminum wheels and brakes with radially bolted calipers.

The most noticeable engineering difference between the BMW HP2 Sport from the earlier endurance racing HP2 Enduro Boxer is the brand new cylinder heads: each of the double overhead camshafts (DOHC) uses a drag lever to actuate the valves that are larger than those on the BMW R 1200 S. Further modifications, such as the flow-optimized intake and outlet, new forged pistons and adapted connecting rod, help the engine to achieve the necessary higher output compared to the basic engine.

A new stainless steel exhaust system is placed below the engine for the first time, keeping the lower area of the motorcycle extremely slim for greater freedom of movement for a "hanging off" riding position. Although designed for racing prowess, the BMW HP2 Sport does not forego the safety benefits of ABS. A sophisticated anti-blocking system, specially adapted to the HP2 Sport, is available as an option and is configured so that it can be deactivated for the racetrack.
