VIDEO DRAGSTRIP RIP: Rickey Gadson on his Supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2 Drag Bike
Drag racing champ Rickey Gadson parks his ZX-14R and lays a patch down on his lighter, longer, custom Kawasaki Ninja H2R . See how the new supercharged bike does on the Rockingham quarter-mile.
On December 11, 2014, at the New York International Motorcycle Show, Kawasaki unveiled a highly customized race bike created specifically for use by Kawasaki-sponsored rider and eleven-time drag racing champion, Rickey Gadson.
This one-of-a-kind motorcycle was specially designed in conjunction with Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. to meet certain drag racing specifications.
For Rickey’s part, he worked on a number of other modifications to enhance the motorcycle’s on-track prowess. These include a Strong Arm extended swing arm from Adam’s Performance. It accommodates a Brock’s Performance BST carbon fiber rear wheel to save weight, while a Ninja H2 cast aluminum front wheel was used on the front.
Completing the rear-end upgrades, Gadson added a JRI rear shock and equipped the motorcycle with a handlebar-mounted air shifter, which works in conjunction with the Kawasaki Quick Shifter on the Ninja H2.
