Video: Epic rolling burnouts with a Kawasaki Ninja H2R

Turkish WSSP ace Kenan Sofuoglu shows how to do epic rolling burnouts with a Kawasaki Ninja H2R.

Fresh off his successful 400km/h attempt on the Izmet Bay Bridge with the supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2R, it appears Kenan Sofuoglu wasn’t done just yet.

The Turkish World Supersport Championship (WSSP) rider, who is regarded as the series’ most successful rider of all time, recently posted this epic video on his official Facebook page. The video shows Kenan executing a series of epically perfect rolling burnouts with the Kawasaki Ninja H2R track bike.


In the process, Kenan managed to get the supercharged track weapon’s 310hp 998cc in-line four-cylinder screamer to spit out exhaust flames whilst its titanium exhaust manifold glows red hot as well.

No doubt, this act of showboating has turned our frowns upside down today, and we hope it does with you too. HOWEVER, we absolutely don’t condone the fact that the Turkish WSSP ace wasn’t geared up properly for this on-road stunt.


And it must be pointed out that the Kawasaki Ninja H2R isn’t a road legal machine, at all. But we reckon the 100hp or so the R version boasts over the road-legal Kawasaki Ninja H2 allowed Kenan to do those burnouts beautifully.
