Just leave this one here with little comment...how 'fast' do think the H2 burns through a set of rubbers?

Well supposedly at a fairly fast pace...



The second of two slicks chewed up bybthe H2 this morning.

Anyone worried that the H2 would be a one trick pony, needn't be.

Soooooo fast, and sweet handling too.

More to come, but its lunch now then the H2R......

Bazza,


You're located in Europe right? I envy all of you living in Europe who are about to receive this beyond belief motorcycle. I would love to be able to just take off and go ride France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Spain, UK, etc. Awesome!!!!


This bike is going to be a perfect machine for tooling around Europe.

Those tires got put through their paces.
It would be great to see what exactly this H2 and its tires were put through.

From the Superbike Review:

I’ve ridden Losail before, on the Fireblade SP launch a few years ago. I was confident I knew my way round well enough and rolled down pit lane on a slick-shod H2 like I owned the place. Turn one is a long lazy 180 degree right-hander, just before the apex I went to pick up the gas. At that point, I pretty much pissed my pants. The drive was so ginormous and instant that I nigh on jumped off like I’d been tazed. Torque, like no other bike I’ve ever ridden, flowed from throttle hand to rear tyre in a millisecond. It wasn’t fueling poorly, it wasn’t snatchy as such, there was just so much more of what I was used to that I spent the first two laps with eyes the size of dinner plates staring at my hand each time I wound on some gas, just to make sure I wasn’t being a dick and unknowingly sticking the thing on the stop. I wasn’t and this bike just got awesome. Through the right-left-right-right flick in the middle of the track, the weight of the bike was obvious, but not an issue. You don’t ride this bike thinking it’s like a ZZR or a Hayabusa, you ride it thinking it’s like a ZX-10R or a GSX-R and that’s a good thing. Round the last right hander in third gear, eyes burning a dot on the hazy horizon, I went for the stop and hoped that I was about to experience everything I’d imagined in the few months since finding out I was on this trip.
