Boxer power and Mgamoto comfort

Ex works, the Megamoto is a comfortable companion, the HP2 Sport a well-trained sports friend. What happens when you pair the power of the sports boxer with the comfort of the Megamoto?

Round one begins with a solid defeat. The Megamoto has
With a full boxer hum, pushed through the slow evening rush hour traffic and stands in front of the traffic lights. Red-yellow, gas on, stalled, the sardonic hoot of horn follows from behind: The rocker up there messed it up! M-Tec boss Michael Muhlmann specifically pointed out the shift pattern in reverse: "Gell Buam, you want to let it fly properly in the curves." But flying stands in contrast to decades of conditioning as a normal Otto driver: first gear down, the rest up. Not with this Megamoto. When shifting gears, concentration is always the order of the day, despite the convenient combination of an automatic gearshift and an anti-hopping clutch. But only there. Everything else is done by hand with the M-Tec conversion: especially thanks to the excellent coordination-
ten Boxers, who stands really well in the feed and thus makes a lot of fun, especially on the country road.

The originally 113 series horses have now grown to 129 hp with homemade camshafts and a new piston set with higher compression. Correspondingly, the Megamoto hits hard in terms of torque output. You not only feel this with every turn of the throttle, it is also confirmed by a sober look at the torque values. The fact that the boxer hangs so directly and greedily on the gas has to do with the fact that a finely tuned Power Commander V intervenes in the mapping. Which, of course, does not get the blessing of German surveillance organizations.

While Muhlmann left the front of the Megamoto relatively close to the series except for small Kellermann indicators and hardly any larger Gonia mirrors, he let off steam all the more at the rear. The original carbon monocoque of the HP2 Sport stretches over the rear of the Megamoto like a damn tightly cut mini dress. Slender Akrapovic pots loll under it. And if it is classy, ​​then right: the tightly padded individual seat is covered with soft Alcantara leather – and the bottom line is anything but uncomfortable.


Finely adjusted: standard strut revised with a soft spring.

The wide LSL handlebar, with which the M-Tec Boxer can be precisely steered through the winding bends in the northern Black Forest, lies just as well in the hand. The Pirelli Rosso Corsa III tires, which are mounted on the carbon wheels, which weigh just under five kilograms, need temperature, but then provide crystal-clear feedback. Thanks to the finely reworked shock absorber, the boxer can iron stably even over uneven slopes. At most, you can feel a certain sluggishness in fast alternating curves – but after all you are not sitting on a feather-light supermoto, but still on a robust boxer weighing almost 200 kilograms and around 1200 cubic meters. So round two goes to the Megamoto. And if the pilot has an eye on the gear indicator the next time he starts traffic lights, it should also work with lap three.
