Cheers Adam and Jeffro. Was excited when they announced the H2 just couldn't justify it at the time. It became too irresistible especially reading about how happy everyone was. Now the torturous wait till it's ready.
Yeh mate I was the same I wanted one about year ago but because couldn't test ride it I didn't buy it, but eventually I took the gamble and I can tell you it's much more than my expectations. It's just about Feb now so not that long to wait and enjoy the suspense of waiting.
I don't know what background your from but on here most are modifying or thinking modifying before or just after purchase. I am a little different and have enjoyed it stock standard with just the supplied Akrapovic slip on at least til I get used to the setup. Eventually I suppose I want to "derestrict " it with a flash but in no hurry. It will easily lift the front wheel in first four gears so there's plenty of power. I came from riding two Hayabusas and from the track too, and it surprised me with its get up and go...
But I found it it's much more than just the outright power, it has real presence when riding, good handling package for its weight, suspension is just awesome, brakes unbelievable, but best of all the supercharger noise (especially when hugging the tank through corners and head is close to body work it sort of sings to you ha! Great stuff!!
I am new to it but have learnt a lot already on my own and from here too, so if you ever need a hand or want to know something chances are I have already asked or hopefully know about it. And if you ever come to Sydney look me up for a ride perhaps?
And oh yeh nearly forgot, the gift package is pretty sweet, they give you a certificate from Kawasaki Japan (pretty cool) a hardback book on history of Kawasaki Ninja series (in English AND Japanese!) and a flash drive with all the press info of release of the bike, photos, and most importantly the complete service manual....
Keep us updated when you acquire it...
