Kawasaki, please stop!
on: October 18, 2019, 01:33:53 PM
I sold my Z900 to purchase the RS (not getting rid of it) and then Kawasaki creates this:

http://www.motorcycledaily.com/2019/10/new-supercharged-kawasaki-z-h2-to-be-unveiled-october-23/

Need to make room in the garage and hope my wife really loves me.  :169:

Can't wait until the 23rd and the first ride reviews.

Someone here needs to purchase one and then sale it because it's too fast for them so I can pick it up on the cheap.  :038:

Way to go Matt!

I like it and I want it. I had an H2 when it first came out and it was a beast, but the ergos where not much better than a ZX-10R an on the street it just got old.

No to have a naked with decent ergos and similar power would be ideal!!!!!

Well, what is the point for a super charged bike that makes HP that Super Sports make anyway? Any SS litter bike makes 200HP, KTM and BMW nakeds, 180+

I get the ridiculous 260HP and 300HP on the H2 special editions, and the need for a SC, but IMO, what good does the SC do besides add weight, and bragging rights , on a 200HP bike that makes that power NA anyway?

It's the manner in which it delivers the power and torque, it's immediate at just about any rpm unlike the high revving/HP liter bikes. You really would not understand until you rode one.

Yep, my car is supercharged and the acceleration is instant.  Here’s a short vid of Randak’s puffer on an old Goldwing as an example.  Good looking bike too.

here it is:

I think Kawi did an awesome job with it and I'm looking to pick one up in the future, not to replace my RS but add to the stable.  :028:

Looks awesome, I would love to add this to my garage.

I knew I had gotten old when these Sugomi transformer bikes lost all their appeal to me. This coming from a guy who used to own a 2007 Suzuki B-King:
