Turkish Racer Hits 400 Kilometres An Hour On Supercharged H2R

Turkish Racer Hits 400 Kilometres An Hour On Supercharged H2R

Think about the fastest you’ve ever driven.

Now double it.

Then add 100.

Chances are, if you’re a law-abiding citizen, that will be somewhere in the region of 240mph.

And we’re all law-abiding here – aren’t we?

Kermit aside, what if we told you that figure still doesn’t match the speed reached by reigning World Supersport champion Kenan Sofuoglu aboard Kawasaki’s supercharged H2R.

That’s right. The Turkish racer reached 400kph – 249mph – on the carbon-fibre dream machine, which has been dubbed ‘the most extreme production bike on earth’.

It took the 31-year-old just 26 seconds to reach the incredible speed on Turkey’s 8,799ft-long Osman Gazi Bridge, setting a new production bike world record.

Reportedly, the stunt was part of the bridge’s inauguration. We certainly hope the regular users don’t take a page out of Sofuoglu’s book when it opens for business…

 

Pssst!
