All this Jibber Jabber coming from a guy that thinks Lorenzo won fair and square. hahahahahahhahaha
All kidding aside, I have been posting contradictory posts as of late. I'm having a hard time making up mind as you can probably see. This morning I woke up again wanting the H2 but here it is later on in the morning and I feel like I should just hold onto my cash.
I'm a hot mess right now. lol
Oh and your "typeface" comment was hilarious. Spend upwards of $20,000 on a bike and you better love every detail. That's just my opinion though.
Just to reiterate, the Aprilia is a superb machine. I just don't like it's styling. ....and that's enough for me not to buy it. To each his own as they say. I think it's FUGLY! ....and I'm 197lbs on an empty stomach so the bike is too diminutive for my taste.
It's very likely that I may end up getting the H2 but if not, I'm perfectly content with riding my F4 on the track in 2016 and just spend a few dollars on some go-fast goodies for it. It dyno'ed at 146hp with the stock exhaust and a custom PCIII map. That's more HP than I can realistically use. No need for Traction Control with that HP figure. lol
Kawasaki's got plans to put that Supercharger on other machines. They unveiled a 600cc supercharged bike at the Tokyo motor show recently. This is only the beginning. I think the Smart Money waits. Look at the Desmosedici. That was $75K large, and barely cracked 170hp. It's still nice, but the performance has been trounced soundly. I think the same will happen with the H2. Maybe not the H2R, but definitely the H2 within the next 3 years. If the liter bike class all start putting 200hp to the wheel that will render the H2 obsolete. Then all you have is an overweight 1000cc bike with an expensive paint job. Kawasaki dropped the ball by not giving that bike at least 250HP out of the crate.
