BUILT BEYOND BELIEF
Kawasaki’s design team committed themselves to developing the “ultimate” motorcycle from a clean slate. The bike needed to deliver intense acceleration and an ultra-high top speed, coupled with supersport-level circuit performance. The Ninja H2 is powered by a supercharged engine based closely on that developed for the over 300 PS Ninja H2R (close course model). The key to achieving this incredible performance lies in the engine’s supercharger ˗ a motorcycle-specific unit designed completely inhouse with technology from the Gas Turbine & Machinery Company, Aerospace Company and Corporate Technology Division.
