New image of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 crash in South Africa
Our earlier report of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 crash caught great attention and sparked a debate on whether such ultra powerful superbikes are safe for public roads. The details about the location of the crash were earlier unknown. While some readers expressed their concern about the condition of the rider, a few pointed out the location of the crash. After some research and comparing the new photographs shared by our followers with the earlier image, we found out that both the snaps were of the same Kawasaki Ninja H2 and the crash indeed took place in South Africa.
First image of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 crash
According to the latest inputs from SuperBike Magazine, the rider of the above Kawasaki Ninja H2 is alive and recovering after sustaining injuries from the crash. The motorcycle, however, has been damaged beyond repair and it is unlikely that this particular example of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 will hit the roads again.
Edit: In the meantime, here’s a comment we got on our previous post from someone who knows the rider
Hi there Suvil,
Thank you for being the only concerned person to ask about the rider, hence I chose to respond to you!
It happened in Durban, South Africa on Sunday, 7 June 2015.
He is in the intensive care ward still in critical condition. Please may I ask all to keep him in their prayers.
We earnestly hope and pray that the injured rider recovers soon enough.
