So I guess the hP wars are heating up with the bikes as well.

Do you want the wimpy version of the new Kawasaki with as yet un confirmed but in excess of 200 HP super charged 1,000 CC .

Or the manly 300+ HP track version , same supercharged 1,000 cc. The bar has been raised a LOT .

Here is a link to the video where the bike was revealed on Leno's garage show . The sound alone makes a statement,

I'd kill myself with that bike.
I just wish they brought real H2s back.

We have been tapped to rotrex supercharge a Harley Knucklehead for land speed racing too. That is going to be interesting.

I don't really know why this is, but I'm drawn more to the low HP bikes than anything else. That just doesn't appeal to me in the slightest bit.

I get more out of cornering from a car. To me there is something special about how hard motorcycles accelerate. As far as looks go that bike doesn't do much for me lol

It could be because I've only ever ridden one bike, so I don't really know what it feels like.

I just like helping make them fast. At my age the skin on my neck starts to flap above 90 on a bike

My favorite bike of the year sneaks in right at the end, and I don't even like Moto Guzzi's. OEM+ at its best
