1975 was the final year of Kawasaki’s legendary H2 – a name so powerful that Team Green brought it back for the insane supercharged machine that they call a “hypersport” motorcycle.
The H2 was affectionately known as the Widowmaker as it was the fastest production motorcycle in the world when it was released. It had more than enough motor but the frame/suspension/tires weren’t necessarily up to the task, depending on who you ask. The 2-stroke motor was good for 74 horsepower at a time when the second most powerful bike (Triumph Trident) was making 58, but the H2 weighed only 17 pounds more than the 500cc little brother H1.
This example (H2F-46991) is adorned in the famous Candy Purple colorway, and it has just 4,243 miles. Per the seller, “the bike runs as it was designed to run” but “if you want a trailer queen then you need new chrome and new paint.” Mechanically, everything is said to work though the high beam switch tab is broken (the switch still works). The seller calls it a great daily rider, and seeing as the reserve has already been met it appears that his price was reasonable for someone that wants to ride and doesn’t mind some pitted/rusty chrome and other relatively minor cosmetic flaws considering the age.
