And for the record, mock me all you want, I'm too much of a Bob Costas to ride this thing.

In other news, SCCA Mod classes will be a lot faster in a few years.

Looks good (apart from the wheels)

And yeah 300hp in a bike sounds pretty frightening

$10 says Warren already has begun CAD mock ups for installing that drivetrain in an exocet...

My personal opinion is that looks amazingly bad. When I read they were coming out with a supercharged bike my hope was something around 400cc, 60lb/ft of torque, good all arounder.

There will be a lot of wrecked donors I'm betting.

Some powerwashing required. Bring Coke.

That's a whole lot of NOPE in one package.

It looks like an entry-level Decepticon bot. And probably acts like one, too.

110 hp of Kawasaki fury was too much for me. I'll pass on this one thanks.

Related note, anyone want a wrecked '95 Concours? Good motor and shaft drive

Killing all humanity that comes near it? That is a huge helping of NOPE with two sides of NOPE and some buttered NOPE to go with it.

Both.....I posted the ninja-h2.com teaser page about a month ago in the sprockets section, and since then, purchased a Kawa that's still nastier than this. I'm out on an early h2 street version, but I can't wait to run against one.

For the record, the first H2 earned the moniker "Widowmaker" and it has been bestowed upon 3 other Kawasaki bikes since, the GPZ 750 turbo, the gpz1000rx(the bike from top gun), and the '04-05 zx-10r....they're getting very good at building insane and revolutionary bikes that transform the industry while killing squids everywhere....

Yeah, I'm not sure what frightens me more, this or the Raptor. I'd say this.

For the record, I'd ride it Can't be that bad with all the computer aids like traction & wheelie control along with abs.

Most new sportbikes do have e-throttle with multiple "sensitivity" levels so it might be possible to dial this thing down with some clever software.

They can call the throttle response settings Stun, Kill, and Hyperdeath

I'd ride it to say I rode it, complete w/ pics. Then I'd change my diaper, wipe my butt and post cool pitchers on the innernet.

I'd ride it at least once. It's like riding a Motogp bike.

So my wife said no to the last bike I attempted to buy because it was "a little bit turbocharged" (my words). I wonder if she'll bite if it's only "a little bit supercharged"....
