270's or 280's with a gear change? LMAO....takes 500+ hp and dedicated aero for that. In fact, only one "streetable" bike has ran 270+, ever. And it looked nothing like stock aero.

Would like to know the overall details on the bike. H2 or H2R??

I knew Bill Warner and those guys' rig looks nothing like what Warner rode. On the flats someone can get a few miles faster than on a mile or mile and a half, but that bike did not look up to 270 by any means. Wish they had shown a little more of the motor in that video.

It's an H2R.

The bike in post 3 above looks like an H2 - no wings and it looks like an H2 intake tube, also I think they have an H2R that is number 3800 and this bike is number 3801.


If they are running in MPS-BG the record is 240 and held by a Al Lamb on a very expensive Honda. They will need more than a 30 tooth sprocket to beat his record. Not sure about records at El Mirage, they would have to be in the 230 to 235 range though.

H2(R) will not be in any serious record contention, outside of production blown classes. But, fast is fast...seeing what they can do on a stock motor will be fun to watch!

I am waiting to see someone start to modify one for more than simple bolt ons, 400hp shouldnt be all that hard to do
then a Ralph Hudson type bodywork and they can begin to get somewhere near the 250 range

Here's some more info on the bike and team:


A factory stock H2R recorded a speed of 142.770 miles per hour at last weekend's June 14-15 SCTA (Southern California Timing Association) land speed trials meet, which was held on the dry lakebed at El Mirage California. The H2R was spotted on Saturday, June 14th being trailered along the 1.3 mile lakebed race course alongside teams from Kawasaki USA and Japan. When asked why the H2R was wearing race slick tires, a Kawasaki team member was overheard explaining that they were interested in seeing how the H2R performed in its stock load out.

[Correction: We received word from Kawasaki, that while some of the members work for Kawasaki, this was not endorsed by the company. From Kawasaki: "In fact, the team present is on holiday at their own expenses, including the bike and equipment. In other words-- it is not an official test / race participation by Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. or Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd."]

In the end do you guys think the smaller displacement (1000cc) will eventually hold it down compared to the big 2? 14r and busa? (With boost of course)
