Ninja H2 - Built Beyond Belief

Ninja H2- the Beast among the bikes is now on road. By both built quality and massive technological upgrades, Kawasaki has given birth to one of the most ferocious bike. With a massive power of 210 ps, H2 stands out in the streets. The beast has its flagship model H2R which is powered by a 360 bhp engine, which is only built for tracks and not for roads. When it comes to look, H2 have a mirror finished front fender, side fairings and tank tail panel. The headlight is placed in between the air intakes at the front. Designed by KHI’s Aerospace Division, the mirror stays feature airfoil cross-sections with Gurney flaps that contribute to down force generation. 

Kawasaki is using trellis chassis for the very first time in H2 which makes it more strong and built. Made from high-tensile steel, the trellis frame balances stiffness and flexibility for top performance at higher speeds. 5 spoke rear wheel star-pattern 5 is supported on a single side swing arm.

When it comes to the heart of the beast, H2 boasts about a 998 cc Liquid cooled 4 Cylinder supercharged Engine, which is capable of producing 210 ps power and 133.5 Nm torque at 10000 rpm. Chosen for its high-rpm performance, the centrifugal-type supercharger is incredibly efficient at compressing air (at up to 2.4x atmospheric pressure) while minimizing heat. The impeller spins at 9.2x speed of the crankshaft, reaching speeds of nearly 130,000 rpm, pumping a capacity of over 200 liters of air per second into the engine.

H2 comes with powerful technologies like Kawasaki traction control, Kawasaki Launch control and Kawasaki engine break control which in turn makes H2 more stable and gives it improved handling. 3-mode KLCM provides unmatchable acceleration from a stop by electronically controlling engine output to minimize rear wheel-slip and front end lift. Kawasaki traction control provides 3 different modes for different terrains with a 6 speed transmission and slipper clutch. The world’s only supercharged production street bike engine creates unprecedented power for remarkable acceleration. The heavy growl of the boosted liter-class engine is a sound the streets won’t soon forget.
