Maverick still has a need for speed. And not just in the air.
Tom Cruise is back on a bike in the latest trailer for the upcoming sequel “Top Gun: Maverick.”
The clip includes his character Pete Mitchell reporting for duty on the Kawasaki Ninja GPZ900R he famously raced alongside a fighter plane with in the 1986 blockbuster.
An earlier trailer showed him pulling a cover off of it in a room full of motorcycles, and it’s not the only one he rides in the film.
Recreating an iconic scene from the original where Cruise and Kelly McGillis rode helmetless on the Ninja, he takes co-star Jennifer Connelly for a spin on the back of a new $32,500 Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon. The superbike has a supercharged engine with more than 200 horsepower. Kawasaki doesn’t say exactly how much, but markets it as the most powerful supercharged production motorcycle in the world.
The H2 also available in a track-only H2R version with 310 hp motor that can hit 236 mph and is both the most powerful and fastest motorcycle available from a major manufacturer.
The H2R is not street legal.
