One of the most powerful motorcycles in the world at one of the most dangerous racing circuits is a perfect recipe for an adrenaline filled video that would make you pull our your prized possession and hit the road.

That’s what nearly happened with me and couple of my colleagues back at Motoroids when we saw the 2013 Lightweight TT winner James Hillier ride the monstrous Kawasaki Ninja H2R on the Isle of Man circuit. But it’s duty before pleasure for us and hence we postponed the plan and called in for some hot pizza and enjoy the cool weather.

Hiller clocked an astonishing GPS indicated speed of 206 miles per hour on the supercharged, 300+ horsepower machine on the Snaefell Mountain Course hence clocking a new top speed record on the Isle.

Talking about his experience, Hillier said, “That was insane, simply insane. The first four gears are just over in a flash and the acceleration is mental. It was fast everywhere and over the mountain, well, it was simply incredible. I had my cycling app Strava switched on for the whole lap and down Sulby straight I gave it full gas in top gear and it topped out at over 206mph. Wow!”
