Kawasaki Ninja H2R Drag Strip Crash!

If you take a Kawasaki Ninja H2R to the drag strip…don’t crash it!

If there’s one bike you don’t want to crash, it’s the Kawasaki Ninja H2R. This guy lives the nightmare for us…Check out this epic H2R drag strip crash but be warned: watching $50,000 spin down the drag strip makes for uncomfortable viewing! However, credit where credit is due: this rider has the balls to take the H2R to the track in the first place – and that track looks like a freakin’ ice rink. (I’ll admit that the rider slide on his feet after the crash, due to the spilled fuel or coolant, but even before it looks damn slippery!)

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m no drag race specialist, so what’s going on here? Was the temperature too low for the tires to gain traction, or was the track ruined from a previous run? Or was there rider error involved? Either way, we’re glad that his H2R wasn’t sporting the aerodynamic winglets, because replacing them won’t be cheap. We just hope he can buff out the rest of damage…

About Joe Appleton

I’ve done a bit of work here and there in the industry – I’ve even ridden a few bikes for actual money but what it comes down to is this: I ride bikes, build bikes and occasionally crash ‘em too. I like what I like but that certainly doesn’t make my opinion any more valid than yours…
