The launch of the mighty Kawasaki Ninja H2R
superbike hyperbike megabike left the motoring fraternity in shock and awe as the Japanese bike maker pushed the two-wheeler technology envelope to outer space with the 300HP supercharged monster. Just like everyone else, we were curious to figure how this track-only beast will fare against the similar four-wheeled monstrosities like the 1200 HP Bugatti Veyron. It isn’t, however currently possible for weblogs like ours to bring these extremities together on a drag strip in a country like India.
Thanks then, to the good folks at Super Street Magazine who read our, and every curious petrol head’s minds and placed the H2R against three supercars – the McLaren 12C, a ferocious 1200 HP Bugatti Veyron and a heavily modded, thunderous 1350 HP Nissan GT-R – for a half mile airstrip run.
