    Awesome bikes. I was close to buying one but ended up going V4S instead.

    They’re hard work though, not easy or cheap to live with but well worth it for the looks alone!

    Possibly one of the best looking bikes ever, sadly I did not get on with it on a test ride and bought a BWP HP4 instead.

    H2R isn’t road legal and it’s too loud for UK tracks with the standard pipe.

    This was my 2017 which benefitted from the ohlins rear shock, IMU and blipper. Fitted a full Akra to it which made a big difference to the handling, performance and of course, the sound. Sold it after one season though, forever had people coming up to look at it or ask questions but paranoia started to kick it when it’s 2/3 guys in a van and you think they’re going to steal it. Didn’t buy it for fuel economy but 70, maybe 80 miles before the fuel light came on got boring quickly. Rear tyre was done after 1k miles. Fun for a while but not a long term ownership proposition IMO. Not a fan of the tft dash on the later models but everyone has different tastes.
