Rider on the H2 is female.

No question that this bike is excellent; however the MAJOR problem is that no one will have the ability to keep tires on this bike since it's so freakin heavy. It's a superbike, as the math doesn't lie if numbers are accurate. Chain has to be at least 530 as 525 doesn't stand up to the 10r and 530 is good.

The ONLY problem: TIRES!!!!!! Due to the glutton syndrome. Gut feeling about tires is met rr m7 might last 2k miles but the front would toast a V inside 900 miles. On g4 I get 3k on rear when steel shows and maybe 2k miles on with dreaded V shape that caused flexibility

If Kawa gave me this bike for a year I'd give a ride report. I'm serious.
