SUPERCHARGER IMPELLER • The complex shape of the impeller is 3D machined from forged aluminum for highprecision and durability. • 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.
THE PLANETARY GEAR • Designed using technology from KHI’s Aerospace Company, the planetary gearis incredibly compact and efficient at transferring power.• The planetary gear runs off power from the crankshaft, driving the impeller (via a “step-up” gear) to incredibly high rpm.
ALL-NEW 998cc IN-LINE FOUR-CYLINDER ENGINE • The all-new engine was painstakingly crafted to accommodate the extreme air pressure created by a supercharger. • Cast (rather than forged) through a unique process, the pistons of the Ninja H2are lightweight—yet strong—and able to withstand extremely high temperatures. • The precision-honed combustion chamber is complemented by a flat piston crown—inspired by technology from KHI’s Gas Turbine & Machinery Company—thathelps prevent engine knock.
MOTOGP-STYLE DOG-RING TRANSMISSION • Commonly found in high-performance racing machines, the dog-ring transmission allowsfor effortless, short shifts. • Rather than shifting gears into place, the gears in this configuration stay in place, withthe lightweight dog rings moving to engage the gears. • A contactless quick shifter enables quick upshifts for seamless acceleration. • A high-quality hydraulic clutch features Brembo components for smooth actuation.
FULLY ADJUSTABLE KYB® RACING SUSPENSION • For the first time ever on asphalt, The KYB AOS-II (Air-Oil-Separate) cartridge fork is usedfor providing silky-smooth initial action complemented by strong damping. • The front fork is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping, as well as preload. • The fully adjustable KYB shock offers incredible performance, due in part to Uni-Trak® linkage that offers excellent feedback to the rider.
BREMBO® BRAKES • Top-shelf Brembo brake components were specially inspected and tuned specifically for immediate braking response. • In the front, two massive 330mm Brembo semi-floating discs are gripped by dual radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers for superb braking force. • In the rear, a 250mm disc was chosen for strong performance.
WHEELS AND TIRES • The cast aluminum wheels were designed specifically for the Ninja H2, and were created using analysis from Kawasaki’s World Superbike team. • The star-pattern 5-spoke wheels offer optimal rigidity for high-power performance. • The Ninja H2 comes equipped with a massive 200mm rear tire that transmits powerto the ground.
KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL (KTRC) • Whereas many competitive traction control systems react to wheel-slip, this enhanced version of KTRC uses complex analysis to help prevent wheel-slip. • The new KTRC system features three modes, each consisting of three programmable levels, allowing riders to choose how heavily each mode intervenes during riding. • Modes 1 and 2 are tailored for maximum acceleration and performance, while mode 3 is optimized for rainy conditions. The system can also be turned off completely.
KAWASAKI LAUNCH CONTROL MODE (KLCM) • 3-mode KLCM provides unmatchable acceleration from a stop by electronically controlling engine output to minimize rear wheel-slip and front end lift.• Launch Control Mode allows the rider to launch from a stop with the throttle held wide open.
ÖHLINS ELECTRONIC STEERING DAMPER • The Öhlins electronic steering damper adjusts damping based on a number of inputs.• At lower speeds, damping is lessened. As speed increases, steering damping increases for optimal performance.
LED ILLUMINATION • LED headlamps evoke the image of a predator’s fangs, while a red LED taillampand indicators paint the mirror coated black seat a devilish hue. • A full LED display features a host of information such as a digital speedometer, gear indicator, boost indicator, fuel consumption, odometer and more. • The needle of the tachometer sits against black until it starts to move. Then, the backlit numbers chase the needle as it rises.
AERODYNAMIC DEVICES • Designed by KHI’s Aerospace Company, the mirror stays feature airfoil cross-sections with Gurney flaps that contribute to downforce generation. • A chin spoiler on the upper cowl is also function disguised in form, further contributing to downforce generation.
TRELLIS FRAME • Made from high-tensile steel, the trellis frame balances stiffness and flexibility for top performance at higher speeds. • The open design allows for much better heat dissipation—an essential consideration for such a powerful engine.
MIRROR COATED BLACK PAINT • Developed by KHI, the mirror coated black paint of the tank, fairing, and seat is thefirst-ever on a mass-production automobile or motorcycle.• The multi-layer composite paint includes a layer of pure silver formed by a chemical reaction, creating the mirrored effect.• Each layer of paint is carefully attended to by highly-skilled Kawasaki craftsmen• In the shade, the dark base coat shows through the silver for a deep, 3D appearance. In the sun, the silver creates a brilliant metallic effect.
THE RIVER MARK • Reserved only for models of historical significance, the iconic Kawasaki River Markis featured prominently on the front cowl.• The River Mark dates back over a century to the earliest days of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., and was used on select motorcycle models in the 1960s.
