Rickifumi Tesi H2 teaser video:

Rickifumi Ron Haslam raced an Elf 5 Honda during the 1988 500cc World Championship. The Elf used an alternative front suspension instead of telescopic forks. I asked Rocket Ron about the Elf 5 a couple years ago, he said it worked quite well but the front swingarm had limited ground clearance which led to a crash at The Corkscrew. The Elf 5 was a stunner, and absolutely fascinating to examine in detail, much easier to do in those days when most teams were under tents and canopies and not inside closed garages!

I stand corrected.

Rickifumi Kawasaki has a history of high-profile corporate extroversions, like the 24-hour world record and endurance test of the original Z-1 and Kenan Sofuoglu's blasting an H2R across a Turkish bridge at top speed. Remember what Porsche did with their 919 endurance racer last year? They souped it up to the Nth degree then visited a number of famous circuits to break Formula One lap records. Imagine Kawasaki doing something crazy with all of this technology, like creating a motorcycle specifically aimed at breaking MotoGP lap records. A Team Green World Tour to showcase performance beyond that of GP "prototypes". "Hey Marc, what do you think of Johnny Rea going 3 seconds faster than your record with that crazy green supercharged monster?" Shock and awe, baby! God, would Dorna be pissed off. Kawasaki...off the leash!

It's a pretty bold move. They're going for it without reservation. Good for Kawi.
