'Know this: the new H2R isn't a game-changer. It's way more than that. This is a life-changer. There isn't another production vehicle on the planet that gets anywhere near the relentless power, head-splitting noise, and bloody-hell-fire-sweet-lord-help-me-now performance of Kawasaki's utterly mental H2R' – Bike magazine.

If 'too much is never enough' is not Kawasaki's motto then it should be, for the company's history is punctuated by a series of outrageous machines that have captured the motorcycling public's imagination like few others. From the Mach III, to the Z1, to the ZX-10R, and on to today's H2 and H2R, the focus has always been on offering uncompromising high performance, even if the limitations of available technology meant that utilising all their straight-line speed was frequently perilous.

What sets the H2 and H2R apart from their contemporaries is their supercharged engine. Adopting forced induction and smaller engines is seen as the emissions-friendly way forward for the internal combustion engine, but for Kawasaki the H2's blower is simply there to maximise power output. Within the last few years, an almost-200bhp maximum output for a 1,000cc superbike has become the norm, but the track-only H2R delivers a mighty 310bhp, rising to 326 horsepower with ram-air effect at speed. In comparison, the road-going H2 has 'only' 200bhp on tap.

Only 27 H2Rs were allocated to the UK in the first (2015) year of production with an asking price of £41,000, so apart from a select band of journalists few have experienced one. Bike's Mike Armitage: 'Nothing gathers revs and scorches for the horizon with even half the gusto of the H2R. The acceleration is utterly relentless, entirely overwhelming and more than a little bit scary... Traction control making the pipe warble like a MotoGP bike as you dare to try and explore 300 horses while leant over.'

The redoubtable Mr Armitage saw 314km/h (195mph) on the clock at the Losail circuit in Qatar, and there was talk that 384km/h (239mph) had been seen in testing... Yes, those fairing wings are there for good reason. Seemingly the only downside is finding the opportunity to use your H2R: 'It comes with slick tyres, no warranty, is too loud for any trackday and needs a service every 15 hours'. Despite these apparent drawbacks, the UK allocation sold out pretty quickly.

The example offered here was purchased in June 2017 as a 'used vehicle' from Completely Motoring of Staverton, Gloucestershire; the related invoice recording the speedometer reading at that time as '1 mile' is on file. Presented in unused, effectively brand-new condition, this awesome machine comes complete with owner's handbook (in pouch); manufacturer's brochures; Press Information book; Kawasaki Riders Club 'H2R' magazine; and its own numbered, presentational folder containing 'Ninja 30 Years' book, Service Guide; and ignition keys. The original paddock stand and a set of tyre warmers are included in the sale.
