I got a hell of a deal on this one. It has just over 20K miles and to the best of my knowledge and inspection, it has never been down. It is a 1996, the year they went all black, and I have drooled over a 1996 since they were new. In fact, I am sure I have a dealer brochure from then. This one popped up on a local classifieds website for an already pretty low price. It was listed on there for about a month before I sent a low ball offer, and they countered with an offer of $200 more than my offer. I had the cash so I went for it. Picking it up, it came with a Corbin seat, the factory mufflers and a factory service manual. It also came with a sissy bar, which has been replaced and is currently up for sale along with the Corbin seat. If those 2 get close to what I think they are worth, I will have about $1500 in it when it is said and done.

Gonna ride it and enjoy it for a while. They are a fricking blast to ride, that's for sure.

I hate stupid people.

Surprisingly it did as described and saved my butt. Had obviously a helmet on, jacket gloves dragon jeans. All got shredded up and I didn't get so much as a scratch rash wise. Weird how well gear works sometimes right lol..

(Outsider) that's a real sweet bike man congrats again on it. Never rode one but they are so freakin cool, my HS football coach had one with some work done to it, had a bottle of go fast gas hangin off the side, thing sounded unbelievable coming down the road. Always loved those things. Have fun and enjoy it

I know this is gonna come as a shock but you can turn all the electronics off except ABS.With all this power on tap you gotta trim the power delivery when needed.The h2 can be put into RAIN mode at any time riding by pushing the UP button for around 2 seconds.In this mode it only has a little bit of power and all electronics work together to get you home without crashing.You could be going around a turn in 1st gear, rev the engine,dump the clutch and the engine will just studder and not spin the tire.

2000 zx12r 60,500 mile( Now 0 mile 2003 brand new engine} street bike 9.6`s in the 1/4 a few times.My 2012 14r stole me away.9.1 so far..Now my H2 piss`s on everything.It tried to flip me shifting into 3rd gear.

Electronics have come along ways for sure and I know they work, do what their intended to do, and thank god they can be turned off 100% on bikes not like on cars where it'll say it's off but u hang the tail out far enough and it reels u back in anyway. If I could swing a new bike I would it wouldn't be a deal breaker. I just personally prefer not to have em if possible. The direct connection between throttle and throttle bodies/carbs just feels right. Feels different than ride by wire system. I don't need to worry about it as all my money is now going to putting my crashed 12 back together.

The good news is that in most cases you can set the ecu up to default to no rider aids. With a flash, of course.
