Best Superbike: Kawasaki Ninja H2R

It was a bitter disappointment that Kawasaki didn't bring the track-only H2R to the Party of Speed we threw for it at NAS Lemoore, but we must nonetheless honor this force-fed 326-claimed-hp monster for the sheer audacity it represents and the very real performance we experienced at the bike's introduction in Qatar. This is "Superbike" with a capital "S" and the most intense motorcycle we've ever ridden. And while this blown batbike might not come with a cape, it does have wings. If it doesn't blow your socks off, your boots are too damn tight.
