Guess they got tired when it came time to design the lower fairing? You would think the R version would surely have a complete lower. Guess its been a while since Kawasaki was in GP.

Yep. It sold back in June. The Tuono didn't last long at all before someone snagged it up. I thought the Tuono was a great bike. I really like the new V4 1100 Factory. If it comes with a metal tank I'd be tempted to buy another. That's the only criticism of the bike I have, the plastic fuel tank. I want a bike to tour on. Iím sure the Tuono or Street Triple could get me to Alaska or Panama, but by the same token I know a V-Strom Adventure or RT would be much better suited for the task, and would require a lot less work in the form of modifications to get to that point.
I don't suffer from brand loyalty unlike some members on here. Nor do I feel obligated to argue with Adam Waheed, and tell him he picked the wrong bike in a shootout if it wasnít the bike I bought. Iím sorry you lack the ability to look at a situation objectively.
Out of the 15 bikes I've owned, I've had Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Aprilia, and BMW. The only brand I wouldn't buy again would be Kawasaki, because of their unwillingness to stand behind their product while it was still under warranty. I've owned 4 of them though in the past.

I have a long wish list of things and one is Kawi will use this as test bed to put the SC one the next Zx-14....

Article below makes lots of valid points if the spec are correct......
But, I still love it.

I think what the spec sheet on the H2 doesn't show is how easily you will be able to get extra power from it. I haven't heard that there is any difference between the H2 power plant and the H2R. That tells me that a quick tune and possibly exhaust will net you a lot more power than a zx14.

For what it's worth, the Kawi rep in "Leno's Garage" says the H2R has different internals

If it's just Pistons and rods then it will just be stronger so it can hold 300hp reliably. I bet the standard h2 will still be able to be turned up quite a bit. Thanks for the info, I only watched the first half of the show.

From what I've been reading, H2 needs cams, HG, H2R SC gearing, H2R clutch and obviously a cat delete pipe or full system, to get close to what the H2R is making for power...we will know soon as folks start to get their H2's and begin modifying them.

Oh, and here's the service intervals...similar to what is stated for race bikes in the race manual

"For every 15 hours of running over 8,000 min-1, the engine needs to be inspected. For every 30 hours, an engine bottom end overhaul is needed."

That right there makes this bike something I would only own if I was bill gates rich.
