Watch Kawasaki's Evil Ninja H2 Race a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse has over 1,000 horsepower thanks to its 16.4-liter, quad-turbocharged W16 engine. It can rocket from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in just 2.46 seconds, and then continue on to over 240 miles per hour. It however, is a heavy supercar, and weighs 4,044lbs. A far cry from the 524lbs of the carbon fiber Kawasaki H2 superbike that has a better power-to-weight ratio than a modern Formula 1 racecar. It’s supercharged 1,000cc engine produces over 200 horsepower, and can rocket to a theoretical 260 miles per hour. The Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse however, should not be underestimated.

Since the debut of the Kawasaki H2 superbike, it has repeatedly proven that it is faster than anything the world of supercars can come up with. Nevertheless, how will it do facing one of the most powerful cars on the planet? Will it run away from the Veyron as it has when it’s faced other opponents? Or will the matching be far more even than anyone expects?
Recently, the two super machines found themselves on opposite sides of a drag race down an abandoned runway. And in keeping with the ridiculous numbers mentioned above, both were out for blood. As you’ll see, the race begins with a rolling start, this allows the driver and rider to fully utilize the power from these machines. From there, things get truly interesting.
