That's quite the history of motorcycles that you have there. Do you think that it has all been leading up to the Ninja H2?

Welcome to the forum!

Cheers.

In true Kawasaki style this bike gets better with use. quickshifter comes alive after 6k revs, gearbox a dream after 1000 miles.
Its strange having had so many bikes there must have been times when you've thought ,,,can't get better than this. I'm sure a lot if us are feeling this with the H2. Welcome and enjoy

Hi, I have been on the forum at about the time when I put my order in. I finally got mine late Friday evening. I was scared to death that I was going to drop it, trying to unload it from the trailer. So I called a friend to help me. He was pushing on the bike on the front of the bike with dirty leather gloves, and put a round scratch on the fairing. I started it up, let it warm up. My first reaction was how heavy it felt. The next thought, (when I was sitting on the bike), Was the enormous size! I felt intimidated by it's size. I rode it into the garage. The next day, I checked my finances, and found out I didn't have the money for a complete set of safety gear, and the plastic wrap that she needs to protect her. So all I can do is stare at it in the garage. My vin is 975. My motorcycle shop financial advisor is going to email me all of the pictures they took of her. I want to use one of them as my avatar. So it looks like I will have to ride vicariously through you wonderful people a little bit longer. thank you

Welcome Ricky... People like you are exactly the reason Kawasaki built the H2. In the right hands it produces miles of smiles. The yappers are yappers, anyone who doesn't respect the positioning of this bike or disowns it based on paper was never really interested in the fastest accelerating bike ever...

So true, when I bought my 78' Z1-R most people thought I was Crazy to pay $3695. for a Japanese Motorcycle, but I remember the day I took her home WOW, I was Happy, when I picked up the H2 I had the same feeling 37 years later...LOL.... I was running 11.7 with a Kerker Pipe, [email protected]'s and 1 tooth down on the counter sprocket and back then that was Fast for a stock bike!! it was at New England Dragway I shut up all the Kawasaki haters.. Now I doing the same with the H2.... Nothing changes...LOL
