who wants to see a side by side run?
I didn't realize that, thought the stage 2 260ish rwhp was shy of the H2R, thought it was over 300 at the crank. I can't wait to get stage 2 installed next week.I am pretty sure a de-restricted H2 with bolt-ons will be just as fast the H2R. Akrapovic had an H2R put down 241whp, and their stock H2 put down 195. Exhaust, stage 2 flash and a PC5 will net more power than H2R for sure. Hard to say if the weight difference will help.
Ya they were showing as high as 326bhp (crank) but clearly that must have been over rated, or we are looking at a ridiculous amount of drivetrain loss lol, which I don't think is the case.I didn't realize that, thought the stage 2 260ish rwhp was shy of the H2R, thought it was over 300 at the crank.

Stage 2 w/ Brocks pipe is much closer in weight, the OEM muffler alone 18lbs, think the cat is another 18. Eliminate H2s rear fender, etc. lights, lose the mirrors which are pretty heavy about 3 lbs each the difference in the H2Rs body work can't be more than 5-10lbs most.It is a very interesting comparison. The h2 is a low to mid monster, front wheel is of course in the air. The H2R delivers its power more predictably. To me it feels easier to control, than the H2. The power is more of a roll on smooth curve upwards. The big difference to me is in the upper RPM range, the freakin H2R will throw your ass off the back, really. The weight difference on a full on power hit or in a tight corner also makes a big difference. You do notice the 75 lbs less.
What really will be crazy is when Brock tunes in the Stage 2 package, with A set of H2R cams.
In that case the H2 would probably match the top end of the H2R. And if the low to mid is still the same. The H2 will be right there.
