Post Sale Update: This H2 sold for $10,000 after 21 bids on eBay.


A legend in the motorcycling world, the Kawasaki H2 750 is remembered so fondly thanks to its peaky, narrow powerband and its poor handling characteristics. A bike for experts only, the Widowmaker commands respect wherever it goes. The H2 was capable of knocking out a quarter mile in 12.0 seconds – faster than a Hemi Cuda – thanks to 74 horsepower (though the powerband was only about 2,800 RPM wide). It weighed 423 pounds dry and topped out at 126 miles per hour. For more on the characteristics that gave this bike the Widowmaker moniker, head on over to Motorcycle Classics.

This bike has 11,500 miles and is claimed to run, ride, and shift great. It’s noted to be a numbers matching bike and it’s equipped with Lester mags. Find this H2 for sale in Grant, Florida with bidding up to $6,100 and the reserve not yet met
