The Kawasaki Ninja H2 and H2R at Losail International Circuit in Qatar

Our Road Test Editor exercises the most potent production superbikes ever

The track: Losail International Circuit in Qatar. The motorcycles: Kawasaki's supercharged new H2 and H2R. The rider: Don Canet, Road Test Editor for Cycle World, the only American media outlet present at this test. As always, Canet gives his all, dragging his knees, scuffing his boots and fighting to keep the H2R's front wheel close to the tarmac as he blasts from turn to turn, eventually hitting an indicated 203 mph down the long main straight. Best of all? The sounds. Crank up the volume and savor this rare opportunity to hear the supercharged H2R at full song!
