Clues as we await...

From Tsuyoshi Shibata, head of Kawasaki Europe, as printed in the most recent issue of Performance Bikes Magazine:

" We wanted to maximize the thrill and excitement in the real world. The most important thing is the difference between low, mid, and top end, all through the rev range. It's the start, opening the throttle. For getting to top end, a turbo works later. For beginning, from low RPM, a supercharger is better".

Translation: The H2 and H2R will deliver top torque at all RPM levels. No need to compromise with having either a monster midrange, or a fierce top-end. The H2 provides both, and new level's of power immediately off idle.

We continue to await the promise.

Yes, placed at 6:45pm on 12/19. Waited until the last possible hour to see what information was available on this machine.

Thanks Swift. It will be fascinating to perform back-to-back rides between the H2 and my stock 14R, and compare and contrast. Did you pull the trigger on purchasing both the H2 and H2R? I read somewhere that you were considering both.

In a moment of fiscal conservatism, I elected for just the H2.
