The Kawasaki Ninja H2R will make its debut at the Isle of Man TT with James Hillier riding the supercharged sportbike in a parade lap of the Mountain Course on June 10.
The Quatrro Plant Kawasaki racer will be part of the star-studded parade lap that includes World Superbike Championship racers Chas Davies, Sylvain Guintoli, Jonathan Rea, Leon Camier and Tom Sykes. But only Hillier, the current lap record holder in the Lightweight TT class, will have the honor of riding the H2R.
“I’ve seen the road going Ninja H2 at Bournemouth Kawasaki where the Quattro Plant team is based but this is something else altogether,” said Hillier, who was trusted to transport the machine to the TT paddock. “I can’t wait to hear the sound echo around the first part of the course and then let it rip up the mountain mile – it’s going to be a mega experience!”
