How do you do Cherry Poppers...From the Bandits EXCELLENT link

The H2 is unique in several ways. Obviously the first mass-produced, warrantied, supercharged, speed-limited street-legal road bike, the H2 and H2R are also the first Kawasakis to have a single-sided swingarm and a trellis frame, the first Kawasaki having stainless steel valves, the first Big Four offerings to use the black chrome paint process, the first Kawasaki products in a score of years to bear Kawasaki's historic aircraft logo/River Mark, only the second Kawasaki design boasting an LED headlight, the third having monoblock brake calipers and ride-by-wire and the fourth Kawasaki motorcycle benefitting from a cassette type transmission. And in the R model configuration, the H2 is the first of any of the Big Four's products to have an almost exclusively carbon fiber body.

and this is why I read captions of pictures from websites that actually have well put together content like those guys....

caption from one of the photos (new to me)
From one of the teaser videos. Those look like cylinders, don't they? They're not. They're throttles! These are the largest, at 50mm, that Kawasaki has ever used on a production sport bike.

It's pretty amazing how many firsts that the Kawasaki H2R brings to the table. Kawasaki really pushed itself with this bike. Reading about it is getting tiresome though. I can't wait for some owners to get their bikes so we can hear from the public what the bike is really like.

It makes me wonder why more publications can't be like this, imagine what great ideas would be found and great discussions that would stir up from it!

Because you don't go into journalism if you're good at math...

What you call the sidewalk, In the uk is called the pavement. It is for pedestrians only. :eek:

I wonder if there will be a H2 on the next version of Grand Theft Auto. That's the closest most people will get to riding one. Maybe thats why there will be so few of them, They will even be exclusive on consoles. That would upset H2R (A) >:D
