    Re: New Kawasaki H2

    I wonder what the weight implications are for the 600/1000 cc bikes where that detail matters. This would be awesome on the 14R and the Concours 14 where a little extra weight here or there makes no difference! I've ridden a couple of turbo bikes and they were both a blast. A factory charger with a warranty will probably have people lining up!

    Re: New Kawasaki H2

    I just thought about wheelie and traction control for launching off the line with well over 200hp. Would be awesome. Not my thing but you know Gadson will be clicking off 8 second 1/4 miles left and right.

    Re: New Kawasaki H2

    It'd be awesome if they made a 400cc version. I've always said I would never buy a bike brand new.... but I would buy that.

    Re: New Kawasaki H2

    I've been caught up in the hype of the bike a bit. In my head it was going to be a smaller 3-500cc bike with 600ish power. I guess I was way off. Oh well, not too interested anymore.

    Yeah, really. Not understanding the Kawi hate. They make some solid performance and touring bikes.

    Re: New Kawasaki H2

    Dont know why, Kawasaki has always been the lest known of the big 4. Myself included. My very first bike (30 years ago) was a kawasaki and I havent owned another until 3 months ago.

    Considering they pioneered the sportbike scene with tom cruise and his ninja, you would think that they would be a larger portion of the market.

    They weren't a bad bike but as far as my choices go there was always something better.

    If it's an oil fed plain bearing, it's life should be near infinite as long as the oil supply is setup properly and you change the oil on a reasonable interval.

    Re: New Kawasaki H2

    ZRX, C-14 and depending on the year, the ZX-10 have pretty much become iconic bikes amongst those who ride lots of miles. One thing is for sure, they have MOTOR and I can't wait to see what this H2 is all about and praaaaaay they don't make it so completely fugly you won't want to be seen on one (ala early-mid 2000's ZX6-Rs...)

    nine times out of ten its an electric razor, but...every once in a while...its a dildo. of course its company policy never to imply ownership in the event of a dildo, we have to use the indefinite article "a" dildo ...and not..."your"...dildo...

    Re: New Kawasaki H2

    For the record I think the H2 is a 750 turbo. It makes sense to me since they already had it in 83/84 with the E1 and E2. With all the anniversary talk about the Ninja I think its a pretty good bet.

    Details were released that the H2 will be a 1048cc Centrifugal Supercharged (Gear driven not driven by exhaust gasses ie. Turbo) platform that is not based on the current ZX10 1048cc motor but is its own ground up design and will make 222HP!!!
