And, except in slower corners, most of the time I liked it. The 998cc inline-four has a kind of urgency and violence unlike any motorcycle I have tried. The 380-horse Hayabusa I once rode sort of swelled and then exploded with power, like most turbo bikes. Impressive, and overwhelmingly fast, but imprecise. That’s the thing about the H2: It is violent, it does explode, but the combination of electronic aids, quality damping, and a chassis designed to function in this package puts it all in a box you can get your hands around, if not your head. It’s like having a container that somehow holds the infinite universe, allowing you to peer in and plumb the depths of creation, yet you can keep a lid on the whole thing and hold it like a jewel in your hands. Too weird sounding? I’m telling you that the motorcycle will change how you think about performance.
