This month's issue of Performance Bike had an interesting article about the H2R. I don't know if there is a link to the article, so I will try to touch on some of the points. They could "only" reach 205 mph on the bike, the article concluded that the bike was electronically limited. Next they put the bike on the dyno and got 249 horsepower. On the same dyno, a stock H2 got 205 and the 2015 BMW S1000RR had 196! Now we know why the BMW is so stinking fast, only 9 horsepower less than the H2 and quite a bit lighter. For top speed, they showed the H2R at 205, the H2 at 182 and the BMW at 186. The BMW was quicker to 60 mph, but then the supercharged advantage showed a big advantage. The H2R was 12.5 seconds to 180, the H2 was 15.4 and the BMW was 18 seconds. The test was on a Dynojet dyno, but the stock numbers for the H2 lead me to believe the numbers were roughly 12 hp higher than the Dynojet dyno I use. The test did not show the a/f ratios, but did say the bike was way rich up top. They did ruin the tire and again Kawasaki says the tire is for track use, not top end use. Anyone have an idea what tire is safe for top end use? I'm sure people that read the article will have different opinions of the data, but it does sound like even the H2R is speed restricted and then detuned with the a/f ratios as well. Wonder what else they have done to limit the power? Also if you look at the two dyno results for the H2 and the R, you see that the R makes 44 more horsepower. Putting that in what we are seeing on our dynos, I am guessing this R would show about 237 horsepower, or about 15 less than what some of our bikes have on the top end with our flashed units and other mods. This is really starting to make Rickey Gadsen's 218 mph look really fast compared to the R's. Thoughts?
