Kawasaki H2 Cafe Racer

The recently announced Kawasaki H2 is a motorcycle that’s likely to be remembered as a milestone in superbike design and it’s certainly going to be interesting to see what Ducati, BMW, Suzuki and Honda being respond with.

With a supercharged 4-cylinder engine capable of a rumoured 300bhp, the H2 is a motorcycle that’s only going to be bought by people considerably more mad and an order of magnitude more skilled than I. That said, I’d love to take one out onto a closed circuit for an afternoon, after dressing myself from head to toe in armour, padding, leather, Kevlar and holy water.

Although deliveries of Kawasaki’s H2 haven’t yet begun, that hasn’t stopped designers from pouring over the images and beginning to imagine what alterations could be made. The bike you see here is the first Kawasaki H2 Cafe Racer, albeit in digital concept bike form thanks to Ulfert Janssen of Gannet Design.

The primary goal of this design was to show more of the engineering that lies hidden under the original motorcycle’s fairings, Ulfert wanted to create a classic cafe racer profile with the new design so many of the futuristic whizzbangs were removed and a far more traditional fuel tank, seat and rear cowl were added, a three-piece headlight was then affixed along with a sump-guard under and around the exhausts.

The completed concept bike will almost certainly never be made real, but it does provide an interesting look at what a ton-up boy would do with what is likely the most advanced street-legal motorcycle ever released.

Mustang Boss

Translate »

21.11.1970

Tego dnia najrzadziej spotykany Ford Mustang, Boss 351, debiutował na Detroit Auto Show w Detroit w stanie Michigan. Ford wprowadził markę Mustanga w 1964 roku i samochód okazał się natychmiastowym sukcesem i trafił na okładki pism Time i Newsweek.

Samochód, mimo małych rozmiarów, przez które stał się znany pod nazwą „kucyka” (ang.”pony car”), miał wygląd sportowego pojazdu. Jednak Mustang był o wiele bardziej ceniony niż przeciętny samochód sportowy i to rzadko spotykane uznanie przyczyniło się do historii jednego z największych sukcesów lat 60-tych. Do 1970 roku Ford Mustang rozrósł się a do Bossa 351 bardziej pasował przydomek „siłacza” („muscle car”) niż „kucyka”. Samochód ten miał mocny pięciocylindrowy silnik zbudowany w oparciu o blok „Cleveland” Forda o szacunkowej mocy 300bhp. Boss 351 był zdecydowanie najrzadziej spotykanym Mustangiem: produkowano go tylko przez rok, 1971, i ukończono zaledwie 1 806 jednostek. Dla porównania, w 1965 Ford wyprodukował i sprzedał 500 000 Mustangów.

Corsa 1.2l: Conversion to 2L Z20LET, how fast?

Just outta interest, assuming a budget of around £3000-£4000, how fast can I make my corsa c go if i tinkered with it within the budget? i.e. if 300bhp, how fast? Thank you guys!

P.S. I know, dumb question, “get another car”, but I’d just like to know
