This heavily modified custom Kawasaki Ninja is the fastest of it’s kind
This isn’t your everyday Ninja, in fact it’s a one of a kind. It’s a custom built beast that’s been designed specifically for drag racing.
This brains behind this weapon are Rickey Gadson, 11-time Kawasaki Drag Racing champion in conjunction with Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Adam’s Performance.
For Rickey’s part, he worked on a number of other modifications to enhance the motorcycle’s on-track prowess. These include a Strong Arm extended swing arm from Adam’s Performance. It accommodates a Brock’s Performance BST carbon fiber rear wheel to save weight, while a Ninja H2 cast aluminum front wheel was used on the front.
Completing the rear-end upgrades, Gadson added a JRI rear shock and equipped the motorcycle with a handlebar-mounted air shifter, which works in conjunction with the Kawasaki Quick Shifter on the Ninja H2.
