The first thing you need to know about the 2015 Kawasaki H2R is that its supercharged engine produces about 300 horsepower. The second thing you need to know is that you can’t ride it on the street.
That is because the H2R is a limited-production, high-performance superbike designed for closed-course use only. Slick tires are another clue that this bike is not meant to mingle with traffic.
This motorcycle is so specialised, Kawasaki requires that the engine must be overhauled after every 30 hours of use, requiring a unique level of dedication from potential owners.
Kawasaki is taking special orders for the $55,000 machine between November 19 and December 18 2014, and the required $10,000 deposit does not guarantee you’ll get one. Global demand will determine how many of these highly specialised machines are produced.
One last thing: The H2R is sold without a guarantee. It is, however, guaranteed to make your heart race.
