Kawasaki has recently showcased the updated versions of its two supercharged machines Ninja H2 and Ninja H2R at 2016 Intermot Motor show in Cologne, Germany. The major change seen on the new Ninja H2s is the addition of new suspension system along with an advanced electronics package. Besides the updated Ninja H2 and Ninja H2R, the company also showcased the H2 carbon at the biennial event. As the name suggests, the bike features some carbon fibre element in its body to make it look lightweight and premium.
The revised Kawasaki Ninja H2 now features new Ohlins rear TTX suspension set up at the rear that helps in enhanced stability at higher speeds. Besides this, the new Ninja H2 twins also get Bosch six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) to measure components such as lean angle. The updated Ninja H2 and H2R also features a revamped instrument console that shows added information.
Powering the hyper motorcycle is still the same 998cc, inline four-cylinder engine that comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. The engine churns out a whopping power output of 197 bhp along with a peak torque output of 134 Nm. The new Ninja H2 and H2R see no revisions to the engine in terms of power and performance. However, Kawasaki has made the motor Euro-IV compliant that has been made possible with the integration of a new exhaust setup. The new Ninja H2 now comes with a quick shifter and auto-blipper function that ensures stability under aggressive downshifts.
Coming to the Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon model, the motorcycle features an upper cowl that is made up of CFRP (carbon reinforced polymer) material, making it look distinct from the standard model. The H2 Carbon has been drenched in a matte paint finish and is limited for production to 120 units only.
