Can't really go wrong with anything in the liter bike class right now.

2015 S1000RR, R1M, and H2 are ALL pretty freaking SWEET!

And that's why I wouldn't trade in my '14 ZX10r for a H2.

It's based on hours over 8k RPM.

From Kawi's press release:

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

Probably, since if I'm on a bike much these days it's on the HOV lane.

For $25k I'd rather buy an R1 and $9k worth of track days.

Another good question is if you have an H2 why are you following the H2R's maintenance schedule.

Yup and with the h2 barely having any more power than the other liter bikes it's kinda silly. Someone will crank that supercharger up and make serious power though.

considering the stock limits they put in the tune, there is no way you buy one without knowing you are kissing the warranty goodby
