There is much glory among the clouds, or so they say when the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb comes into discussion. The supremacy of the Ducati Multistrada 1200 came to an end, and Lightning electric bikes, as well as Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R have started to steal the show. For the 2015 Race to the Clouds, two new interesting pretenders have showed up: the new Ducati 1299 Panigale S and the Kawasaki Ninja H2.
The outright 2-wheel record still belongs to the Ducati Multistrada 1200, as Carlin Dunne’s 9:52.819 2012 performance is still safe. Last year, Jeremy Toye won the Pikes Peak race aboard a 2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, but the 9:58.687 falls short when it comes to pose a real threat to the record holder.
Can new, more powerful machines break the standing record?
