They will all sell quickly if the numbers are somewhat limited (less than 500-700 worldwide would be best IMO) and performance is ANYWHERE close to expectations.

So if you actually popped the $60k + TT&L + importing and any other fees that went with getting this 2 wheeled hard-on - Would you actually risk putting it on the street let alone a track? (track is safer in my mind, at least for the rider)

OR

Would you put it in a glass case in your living room next to the fireplace?

Yep. I was just about to say the same.

I will NEVER spend $60K on a bike. But I have friends that do, and they ride them. Without any regrets.

On a lower level - I have owned Bimotas, MZ's and other "rare" or exotic bikes. I rode them all either hard on the street (Hill Country) or the track and if I have the chance to ride the H2 when they are sold years from now at a price I can afford, I'll do the same.

Funny thing about the you always for, when you catch it, it usually isn't as much fun as you thought. It's not bad, but rarely equals what was in your head.

Of course - It's an exotic that you expect to pay that much for. So you want to ride it to show of your "exotic"

This thing is a Yamaha. It's designed and built by the same general engineers that design and build all the other Yamahas. It just has an attachment or tow and wings.

Kawasaki. Pay attention!



And the D16 is built by the same people that built the Monster 620.

I equate this to an exotic just like a Honda RC30.

Is a Nissan GTR just like a Sentra? Sort of like this bike in the KAWASAKI world. I consider both exotics.
