1973 Kawasaki H2 750: Deep Purple

I hate to use the M word but I have to. The ‘Modern’ H1 supercharged beast was a highlight of my testing tasks a few years ago. Hell, I thrashed it so hard Kawasaki made me buy them a new rear tyre, rear fender and inner guard as there was so much melted rubber up the rear end of the Ninja. After the test, I just had to ride an original but I wasn’t so keen on the 500 H1, it was the H2 Mach IV 750 I wanted to try. I wasn’t born when the bike came out but I have read enough about them to get the picture.

Wild, unpredictable, uncontrollable, insane! Or is it?
