Wow, I've never had a thread fail like that before. Might have been the over-rev. Guess it's time to see how supportive the advrider warranty is.

Yeah, it's pretty weird. Not sure what happened. Hopefully a MOD will chime in; I reported the problem to them.

Edit:

A MOD emailed me back.

Looks like someone may have posted some malicious code along with one of their posts and broke the thread.

A member from the Ninja H2 forums claims to have got hold of insider information on the new Ninja H2’s engine specifications.

What does "need" have to do with it?

Does anyone "need" a Ferrari?

Does anyone "need" a donut?

Does anyone "need" a motorcycle when a Honda Fit will get you from A to B?

No.

We do it because we can.

That being said... I NEED this bike.

I totally agree that this is overkill, but it is THE category where that is the main aim of the game.

The main problem here of course is KAWASAKI does not like being 2nd in the race. The gloves were taken off with the S1000R moving in on their turf.

KAWASAKI has tended to respond to that in the past with "extreme prejudice".

Looks like nothing has changed.

Motorcycle tech needs a major shot in the arm. Cars are already becoming as fast as the fastest bikes from the factory. I find this embarrassing.

Well people are working on that right now..

More grip to get the power down and more weight on the front to keep it on the ground.

Meet your future 300HP sports bike...






Except this is just a piddly 110HP development hack.

P.S. Not serious.
