Maverick returns for Top Gun 2 but check out his wheels!

Cruise has been spotted on a rather special bike while filming the sequel to the 1980s blockbuster

BACK in June we posted a clip from the set of the film showing Tom riding what seemed to be a H2 and now we have some slightly better-quality pics to prove it!

The bike appears to be a Kawasaki H2 Carbon, quite a step up from the GPZ900R he rode in the first film. In its day the GPZ produced a whopping (for 1986 anyway) 115bhp. For 2018 he’s nearly doubled that figure with Kawasaki’s supercharged 227bhp monster. Some online are claiming the bike to be the race only H2R (that puts out 300hp for 2019!) but we think this is the H2 Carbon but with the H2R exhaust fitted.

Bike mad Tom is no stranger to insane rides, along side a Bugatti Veyron he’s owned a Ducati Desmocedici, BMW S1000RR, Ducati 999R and a Confederate Hellcat. Not what you’d call bikes for shy and retiring types!

The BHP figure of the bike isn’t the only huge thing in the pictures – check out the heels on Tom’s boots. We knew he was short but those are ridiculous.
