The H2 is electronically limited to 186 mph like everything else. That is confirmed as I see it.
My understanding is the H2 will make 200 HP, and the H2R will make 300 HP.
I read an article that said the H2 was limited to 185 electronically, but that with it's gearing and max rpm it could go 209 mph. Thats fun to read, but not real life.
You will do your highest top speed when geared for the HP peak, not the max rpm's. Also the rear tire spins faster than road speed on these types of runs so it's not one to one.
At the end of the day no one knows yet really. The H2 is limited to 186 per the gentlemen's agreement. A stock unrestricted bike no one has actually tested yet.
I personally would be surprised if the H2 goes quicker than the Busa or the 14 in the 1/4. It sits higher, it has a shorter wheelbase, and has a more abrupt torque response down low, and I believe a bit shorter gearing. the 14 and the Bus do good at drag racing because they are low and long from the start with a good front weight bias. This bike does not have that. I would not be shocked to see that it was a bit slower in ET, but a littler better in MPH.
My real curiosity is what the H2R will do on the drag strip. I will be a bit surprised if about 10 teams did not order an H2R to drag race it. Imagine a stock motored bike that is lower and longer with 300 HP. You are deep in the 8's.
It will be fun to see what happens.
Interestingly and unfortunately those numbers come from someone who has purchased one (claimed...I do believe him). To correct myself, the pic he posted shows the top speed recall function (apparently part of the electronics package) indicating 357 kph, or 221 mph. Again he claims this was a stock, unmodified (in any way) H2. He follows any H2 development way more than I do, but I do think his views are a bit skewed at least in these exact claims.
As far as tech specs, H2 has .2" more ground clearance compared to 14R (5.1" vs. 4.9") and has 1" less wheelbase, 57.3" vs. 58.3" for the 14R. The difference in ground clearance I attribute to the 200/55, which is slightly taller than the 190/50 of a stock 14R. I've looked into the difference between 190/50 an 55 is about 3/8" overall height difference, 3/16" is about .2". For kicks and giggles, 10R's numbers are 5.3" and 56.1" with a 190/55 tire.
One small thing about weight
Generally I see people comparing a 14R as being 590 lbs compared to something like the H2 being 524 and supersports being mid 400s. Considering that most people can't think their way out of a paper bag, it's no surprise people miss significant points when it comes to comparing bike weights. Granted "stock vs stock" is one thing, those numbers are what they are. But then there's the significant points. In all the discussions of weight before, never recall anyone here factoring these in comparing a 14R's weight to other bikes.
- H2 and 10R have 4.5 US gallon capacity, 14R has 5.8. Considering gas weighs ~6 lbs/gallon, that's about 8 lbs.
- 14R ABS models weigh ~7 lbs more than non-ABS models (591 vs 584). All '14+ are ABS only
- 14R comes with dual exhaust which weighs over ~41.5 lbs total. The exhaust I replaced it with weighed ~18.5 lbs total. I think Brocks' titanium system weighs like 8 lbs. Granted a few lbs can probably be knocked off 10R and H2, and other supersports but it won't be nearly as significant as loosing an entire ~15 lb. slip-on.
Just factoring in these differences drops the weight of the fat pig 14R. My bike, which isn't ABS drops from a portly 584 lbs to a more muscular 553 lbs in a more "fair" comparison. All the sudden instead of "oh my derp 14's weigh 70 lbs more than a H2" a much more real-world figure is somewhere around 20-37 lbs more (with the same amount of fuel in, non-abs/abs).
Now there's some validity in saying the 14R's still superior torque output might actually have something for the H2 in terms of acceleration. Stock to stock, the H2 will be faster in the 1/4. That I will bank my reputation on. On the street, in the real world, where someone can pick up 1 to 2 tenths on a 14R pretty easily (20-40 lbs) that could very easily tie things up where I expect the H2 to fall into the 1/4 mile performance (I expect somewhere around 9.2-9.3 stock).
