MCN are riding the new Kawasaki H2 and H2R in Qatar this morning.

After his first session on track, this is what our road tester Chad had to say:

“After months of hype and build-up the H2 matches and maybe even surpasses all of it. It’s truly immense and in third and fourth gear the bike just wants to take off. It’s incredible in terms of acceleration but it also stops and handles way better than you might expect.

“The traction control works really well, I have been riding with it set quite low and this has meant the bike has been half-a-foot out of line all the way through three gears with the rear wheel spinning.

In top gear it slows down a little bit but it’s still as fast as a Kawasaki ZX-10R and is pulling 180mph at the end of the straight.

“I’ve got the H2R to ride in two hours!”

Not a bad way to earn a living eh?
