The new H2R, the crazy new supercharged motorbike from Kawasaki, which was the fastest ever on the Isle of Man TT course, just got its own mini-documentary. As a reminder, it hit 206 mph / 331 km/h on said course in June of this year.
The H2R is the lightened and more powerful version of the road-going H2, and it packs in excess of 300 hp. Definitely a machine you’d need an actual racing track to fully and safely explore.
This just adds to the madness of hooning it it as fast as rider James Hillier did literally inches from deadly stone walls or… people’s living rooms.
The road going version, the H2, starts at $25,000 in the US, on top of which you add a $345 destination charge. Its engine is detuned from the H2R and ‘only’ makes some 220 hp, although Kawasaki is keeping the actual output secret.
