Interesting. It kind of looks like a constipated camel

I posted at the beginning of this thread regarding a turbo Hyabusa that I spent some time on. That bike put down 305whp on a dyno and single handedly ended my obsession with making things faster. It was as terrifying as it was fun. That isn't to say that I won't build something stupid quick in the future but it isn't my goal in purchasing vehicle anymore.

Yeah. The H2 is a bomb getting dropped. Can't wait to see some performance numbers.

Artists draw pretty and fantastic bikes.

You do realize this rendition has a Telelever front suspension with 1/2 inch of travel, right?

Actually to me it looks like the entire front end including the cowl, bars, etc is part of the suspension. I see (may be hallucinating) what looks like 2 pivot points on the side there for a multilink suspension like you'd find on one wheel of a cage.

If so I bet it has more than 1/2" of travel, but that's a lot of unsprung weight too.

It's probably a modern girder fork setup like the Britten uses.

So we have Kawasaki with the H2R putting down supposedly 300 hp and BMW S1000RR 2015 with some new stuff making around 199 hp.
