People keep commenting about how heavy the H2 is. They're appalled that it's listed as 530 lb. I will say this: I never believed the bike was that heavy, so I pulled it onto a scale. In completely stock trim (no carbon, except where the mirrors and wings are), my bike weighed 475 lb. stock, with a gallon of gas. Then, at our December test with the extended swingarm and carbon rear wheel, the bike weighed only 460 lb. I weighed my ZX-14R school bike that same day, set up the same way and with a gallon of fuel. It weighed 530 lb. Sure, if you compare the H2 to a liter bike, it's heavy. But it also has a steel frame, a supercharger, and what looks like the heaviest exhaust I've ever seen on a production bike.
