Post Listing Update: This H2 was pulled off of eBay, final sale price unknown.
Forced induction bikes have been done before, and it looks like we’re headed back in that direction. But in 2015, the Kawasaki H2 was a game changer. A 998cc inline four cylinder paired to a supercharger that Kawasaki had to build in-house cranked out 189 hp and 91 lbs-ft to the tire in Cycle World tests. The 527lb wet weight kept the H2 from being a track weapon, but as a tool for out of body experiences it could not be matched at the time. To put that in perspective, the current 1103cc Ducati V4S has a claimed 91 lbs-ft at the crank, though it weighs significantly less.
A launch year 2015 Kawasaki H2 (VIN: JKAZXCN17FA000547) is being sold from a collection in El Paso, Texas. This example is bone stock, still retaining the factory license plate mount and monstrous exhaust pipes. It looks nearly perfect, without even a scratch to note in the pictures. And for good reason too; there are only 6 miles on the odometer. It was probably ridden from the dealer to the collection, and that was it. If you’re looking for a modern classic to preserve, this could be the bike. The asking price is $22,000, just shy of the $25,000 MSRP. For comparison, a brand new 2018 H2 SX SE was listed on eBay for $19,374. Not the same bike of course, and not a launch model, but arguably would make a better rider. What do you guys think about the modern H2?
