$50k Kawasaki Ninja H2R Rich People Special Edition

Updated April 4, 2017

When does it seem feasible to drop 50 large on the 2015 Kawasaki Ninja H2R motorcycle? When that motorcycle is the product of engineer’s (far brighter than you) blood, sweat and tears. Sure this could be seen as a two-wheeled version of the as it is a carbon fiber rocket with an out-of-this world engine and price tag. But people still bought the LFA and people will still buy this.In order to grasp what power we are talking about, let’s look at this in a perspective you can understand. Say you have a 476.3 lb Fat Girl (with you riding her) with a very quick mind and powerful thunder thighs. Now she is going to be in high-heels that have a tiny point of contact with the ground and then give her thunder thighs 300hp and reveal a room of 50 adorable puppies and several hot Paula Dean buttery recipes in front of her. She is going to exhibit so much force upon takeoff that the tiny contact patch with the ground will not withstand all the force exerted and therefore traction will only be maintained at a high rate of speed. The same goes for braking as only so much contact is being made with the ground and therefore catastrophe and many dead puppies can ensue if the operator does not know how to stop in time. That is why this bike has super sticky tires and is meant for track use.

The 2015 Kawasaki H2R is a “track-only” motorcycle that is the jewel of Kawasaki’s engineering. Like the 80’s when everything had a Turbo sticker on it and some motorcycles actually came turbo’ed this has a Supercharger helping to create 300hp from a 998cc Inline-4. Sure people note that Hayabusa owners have been doing this for years and its true but this is from the factory and in a smaller displacement. Now this bike doesn’t come with a warranty and why should it, it is a RACE BIKE which means that it will be subject to insanely strenuous activity and hopefully your rich ass has a crew of trusty mechanics and multiple sets of sticky tires in stock in order to get a few laps in with this.
