Now it’s a widely known fact that Kawasaki broke all the barriers when it launched the Ninja H2. It was the first production motorcycle to have a supercharged engine in the worldNow after two years, the company has come back with its brand new Ninja H2R. The weight saving measures of the bike justifies its huge price tag. It is the most futuristic bike on sale in terms of both design and technology. There’s still no other bike that competes with its sinister and bold appeal.
The front of the bike is huge and the lines flow from the top to the bottom. The mirrors of the H2 have been replaced by wing-shaped panels in the H2R, which increase its aerodynamic appeal. Similarly, the pillion seat is replaced by the pillion seat cowl. The fully digital instrument console offers the right information you want from the motorcycle on board. Now this includes the gear indicator, an indicator of bank angle sensor, speedometer, odometer, and so on.
The two major equipment additions that Kawasaki has made on this new Ninja H2R – the electronic riding aids now adds in KQS up and down; while the Kawasaki Cornering Management Function (KCMF) helps in easily managing the bike.
The highest speed that the bike boasts of is 197 mph. It features the same inline-four, liquid cooled, 16-valve, 998cc motor engine. The output of the bike increases to over 326 PS. The side and under cowls have been designed to allow for free air flow, this, in turn, helps keep the engines cool.
The bike is fully equipped with the latest gizmos; from the Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC) to the Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-lock Braking System (KIBS) and Kawasaki Launch Control Mode (KLCM).
The price of the Ninja H2R is double that of the previous H2. The bike is built for the tracks and is currently not allowed to be used on the roads.
