Watch Video: Kenan Sofuoglu breaks 400kmph mark on Kawasaki Ninja H2R
Snapshot: Kenan broke the world record for doing 0-400 kmph in just 26 seconds
Kenan Sofuoğlu, a Turkish professional Motorcycle racer, who has won the highest number of Supersport World Championship titles, managed to breach the mark of 400kmph at the Osman Gazi suspension bridge near Izmit. The 31-year-old was driving a slightly modified Kawasaki Ninja H2R with over 300 horsepower with a kerb weight of about 200 kg.
Actually, the record attempt at the opening of the bridge was to take place before the eyes of the Turkish President Erdogan but was postponed because of the weather conditions at 5:00 in the morning. The six-lane Osman Gazi bridge across the Gulf of Izmit is the fourth largest suspension bridge in the world.
Sofuoglu also added, “The first time when I drove the H2R, I could feel its enormous power and speed. I made small changes on the bike, while retaining its original settings and without changing it. I managed to hit 390 kmph mark during my last training and today I did better and reached 400 km/h. The top speed that has been reached on the races at the world championship is about 300 kmph and to achieve this speed, it was a dream and, thank God, I made it! "
