October 4, 2016:Kawasaki’s Ninja H2 and H2R continue to stun the world. Never has so much publicity been received for a motorcycle.
Both models received numerous accolades. Not only did the Ninja H2 receive the Best Bike of the year from Motorcycle News (http://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/2015/october/mcn-awards-2015-machine-of-the-year/), Motorcycle USA (http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/2015/12/article/motousa-best-of-2015-awards/) and Autoby, Japan, both models continued to receive numerous video coverage. If this was not enough, the Ninja H2 also received the prestigious iF Design Award of the year for 2016.
These spectacular motorcycles share many components, including the 998cc inline 4-cylinder engine, proprietary supercharger, trellis frame, compact superbike dimensions, aerodynamic bodywork, single-sided swingarm, powerful Brembo® brakes and so much more. In 2016, the road-legal Ninja H2 received a new Assist and Slipper clutch that allows the lever pressure to function 40% lighter, reducing rider fatigue on longer journeys, as well as helping to avoid rear-wheel hop when executing aggressive downshifts.
For model year 2017, both still continue to impress.
An upgraded Ninja H2 and H2R benefit from numerous changes, including Kawasaki’s most advanced electronics package now incorporating the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), updated KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control) and KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-Lock Braking System), a revised exhaust system to meet Euro 4 emission requirements, clutchless downshifts, tailored ergonomics via Kawasaki Genuine Accessories that allow riders to customize their riding position with an ERGO-FIT raised handlebar kit, suppler suspension action care of a high-grade Öhlins TTX rear shock and updated instrumentation that comprises of bank angle display and max bank angle recording function (possible thanks to the addition of the Inertial Measurement Unit), an updated boost indicator and an IMU indicator.
The H2 model in particular is now joined by the Ninja H2 Carbon, a limited edition model featuring a carbon-fibre upper cowl that immediately distinguishes it from the standard. Only 120 units of the carbon variant will be available, and if this was not special enough, each Ninja H2 Carbon model is individually numbered and features a serial number stamped into the supercharger plate on the right side of the engine.
To further distinguish the Ninja H2 Carbon, a new variation of Kawasaki’s silver-mirror paint has been used that features a matte element. This new paint is identical to that used on the closed-course Ninja H2R. The frame colour in green is also the same as used on the Ninja H2R.
Ninja fans can now look forward to an even more exhilarating experience.
Order taking is now open for India.
