Kawasaki has taken a blow on the table with the presentation of one of those bikes that will mark a turning point in history. In the Hall of INTERMOT will look the racing version, leaving the enrollable for the EICMA in Milan: a pure green blood.
The countdown started a month ago has come to an end. Akashi firm has developed an exquisite product that probably only be available to customers with good purchasing power. The Kawasaki Ninja H2R has spoilers front, carbon fiber bodywork, tubular frame chassis, steel swingarm, Ohlins electronic steering damper (ESD), Brembo M50, Kayaba suspension of last generation, studied system of admission, short escape under 4 in 1 oversized front discs, radiator superbike, Brembo radial clutch/brake pumps and compressor centrifugal to “encourage” a 998cc four-cylinder that can reach 300 hp…
The initials of the front fender make clear that it also has the ABS system – KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System) seen on the Ninja ZX-10R, plus traction control (KTRC), adjustable brake engine (KEBC), anti-wheelie Kawasaki Launch Control Mode (KLCM), change semi-automatic (KQS) and tri-mode driving (Track, Sport and Rain).
It is the first Kawasaki motorcycle catalog that takes advantage of synergies from other areas of the company as that of gas turbines and aerospace, achieving an innovative, sophisticated and very attractive product for fans of the superbikes. A priori, the engine can be as flashy, but the aerodynamics has been studied in the wind tunnel to improve the overall stability at high speed, like its Ram Air intake system.
