While the Bimota Tesi H2 was in pride of place on the firm’s stand at EICMA last year—marking the fact that Kawasaki has taken a 49.9-percent stake in the Italian company—actual specifications were notably thin on the ground. We’re still waiting for any official numbers from the factory, but detailed European type-approval documents for the Tesi H2 have now been filed, revealing key numbers including the H2’s power, weight, and top speed.

As you might expect, the figures are jaw-dropping. In terms of power, the Tesi is officially listed as having 228 bhp at 11,500 rpm. That’s identical to the latest-generation Kawasaki Ninja H2, showing that the engine hasn’t been altered either mechanically or electronically in its transition to the Tesi. Given the cost of meeting emissions limits, that’s understandable. Few people will complain that the H2 engine is lacking in performance, even though the track-only Ninja H2R manages a far greater 306 hp once freed from the requirement to meet emissions restrictions.
