Learn about the new Kawasaki H2R Ninja
The new Kawasaki H2R Ninja motorcycle is the first of its kind and will rewrite the rulebook on 2-wheeled acceleration as we know it. What we know today is that the first version of this bike produces around 300-bph…yes, we just typed, 300 H.P.! This version was built specifically to show the world what was possible to achieve using the collective minds of KHI Heavy Industries.
The supercharger was built in-house by Kawasaki and pushes additional air volume through a 998cc in-line four-cylinder engine that would otherwise be pretty familiar to anyone who understands modern high performance motorcycle engines. This bike (although not legal for Superbike Racing) rolls out on slicks and is track ready. Kawasaki doesn’t care if it’s not legal in sanctioned racing, they’re making a statement here and its a BOLD one!
We will likely have to wait a few months for the street (production) version of the H2R but it should be well worth the wait. It will likely be de-tuned for the street but acceleration should still be off the hook and we’re sure the aftermarket companies will have a field day with the electronic and supercharger settings…
