Rickey Gadson is American. Sponsored by Kawasaki since the last 18 years, he is an 11 time drag racing world champion. What’s even more incredible is that he played a hand in developing the bonkers Kawasaki Ninja H2. Now, like Kawasaki, you could be a Japanese geek who is a master at quantum physics and knows the formula to reverse the planet’s gravity. However, hand over any of your creations to the Americans and they will for sure apply their own NASA brains to make something else out of it.
Rickey Gadson is no different. His one-of-a-kind Ninja H2 hybrid was customized for tearing the drag strip apart. Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. and Adams Performance worked in conjunction to modify a standard H2 in order for the machine to meet certain drag racing specifications. The result is a Long wheelbase version of the Ninja H2 which is equipped with an Adams swingarm or also called as the ‘strong arm’, new JRI shocks and carbon fibre wheels to keep the weight down. Watch the video and make sure you turn up the speakers when the Ninja H2 Hybrid sets a drag strip on fire even when its freezing.
