Well according to this advert, it has to be green, frame that is

Apparently its very rare

Now, correct me if I,m wrong

Green frame 2015, 2018, 2019, grey frame, 2016, 2017

Must be a bad tune if it only puts down 220bhp

Probably didn't get it tuned.
He probably only got it dyno'd to see the power delivery from stock tune and exhaust.

The first year of anything is the most collectable generaly speaking in most cases.

Yes the grey frame is rare as so few people were prepared to part with all that money for a base coat , primer colour frame . Thatís why Kawasaki brought back the original stunning metallic emerald green frame to re boot sales.
Apparently they offered the colour designer of the 2016 /17 models early redundancy .

I have first year H2 , CBX, GS1000S , RD350LC and Triumph Tiger 100 . Donít worry Rob there will always be colour blind buyers when itís time to sell .

I knew this thread was guaranteed to get your attention

I could understand the advert saying "original green frame", yep I could go with that, but "rare", nope, looks like the 2015 model will be remembered for its easy clutch action and rusting frame

I could clearly see the hook but the juicy worm was just so tempting I could not resist taking a bite . Congratulations on your bait presentation and shaming me for being so predictable .
Going in my shed now with a wire brush to clean my frame .

2015 first year from what I read has the lowest production number of units "I could be wrong". And how many of those are still around not crashed, maybe 60-70%.? The first year of suzuki GSXR "1986" are fetching 7-10k for pristine low mile mint units clean title. If you can find one. Same as the first years of yzf "yamaha".. mid 80's mint japanese bikes are fetching double the cost they were new even after applying inflation of the dollar over time. The 2015 and 2016 h2 in 30 years will be a 50k bike. Better believe it, time has proven this with many many models and makers. The first of anything is a buy and hide away bike if you can afford it. In 2050 a 2015 h2 with 0 miles will be pricelessssss

I would guess that most guys buying an h2 now would be in it for engine performance.IMO,the only issue I could think of with any h2 is the weight.You can only get her down so far.It's not a full on dedicated twisty burner.Most guys buying those other bikes are in it for the weight and flickability factor.That's the only drawback for the H2.Maybe someone here can clarify the quick cornering capabilities of this bike better.Don't get me wrong...she handles awesome imo.BUT,I think she's just a tad too heavy to rock fast corners like those others.Mine's at 480 right now with full fuel.Bigger radius'....no problem.kills em.But then again...I don't want to see how far she'll go cornering.I could be totally wrong in my take on it.
I do know lowering the frontend a half inch and the rear 1/4 inch did help her be more flickable.
