Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ Design

  • LED lighting
  • Color TFT display
  • Smartphone connectivity
  • Cornering lights
  • Economical riding indicator

The H2 line brings with it a certain sport-tastic bent surpassing even the Ninja ZX-14R that rests at the top of the non-H2 Ninja pecking order. An angular fairing on the Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ leads the way with a central LED headlight braced by large intake ports below Kawi’s Rivermark badge.

Up top, a clear conical screen punches a hole in the wind for the pilot, and the LED turn signals come integrated with the windtunnel-tested mirrors to keep drag to a minimum. Below the vents, lower fairings extend down to the belly to form a full sportbike scoop that houses a pair of cornering lights in recesses along the leading edge. I’m a big fan of cornering lights, ’cause it freaks me out to steer into unlit areas and cornering lights put light where you’re going, not just where you’re pointing.

Cooling air funnels through the radiator where it then reintegrates with the slipstream through finned vents in the cowling. Behind the glass, an analog tachometer carries almost a score of idiot lights in the bezel with a color TFT screen to deliver all other pertinent metrics and act as an interface for the higher ride-control subsystems. It also touts a Bluetooth for wireless connectivity with your smartphone to enable the “Rideology The App” feature that delivers in-depth info and ride-control options along with call/mail notifications.

The fairing is wide enough to steer the wind around the five-gallon fuel tank but it narrows down nicely at the waist to form a decent leg pocket with room for double training-wheel deployment and full-blown body English. I’m sure the crazy knee draggers and even crazier elbow draggers will rejoice at that last.

The strongly upswept die-cast aluminum subframe provides the passenger with a lofty perch that forms a deep swale for the pilot. Subframe-mount, flip-up footpegs, and J.C. rails finish out the passenger’s gear, and credit where it’s due, Kawi mounted a decent-size p-pad that looks a lot more comfortable than the typical I’d rather not pad we frequently see on the top-tier bikes. Does this make it suitable for sport-touring? Maybe, but not without bags it won’t. Worry not, the accessory catalog has you covered with a choice between hard-mount, 28-liter panniers and a quick-release version that gives your SE+ some serious dry-storage.

A radical-looking LED taillight and standoff-style turn signals finish off the lights with a short mudguard and plateholder that utilizes the tag as an extension and backed up from the swingarm-mount hugger to complete the coverage.

Since the body panels provide less than 100-percent coverage, we get a tantalizing glimpse of the beating heart, and on the left side, the intake conduit that funnels ram-air from the pressure wave at the entry down to the supercharger.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ Chassis

  • Engine brake and traction control
  • Launch control and cornering management
  • IMU-enhanced chassis orientation awareness

A tubular Trellis frame on the Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ provides the main structure with the engine as a stressed member to complete the assembly. The steering head sets a 24.7-degree rake angle with 4.1 inches of trail. While these numbers are typical for sportbikes, the rest of the details point to something far more special than a run-of-the-mill model. A set of 43 mm usd front forks float the front end with adjustable compression- and rebound-damping along with variable spring preload and top-out springs.

Out back, a new Uni-Trak monoshock takes care of business with all the same features as the front, up to and including the new Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension system that provides dynamic damping adjustments under way, in real time. Plus, you can easily change the suspension to compensate for changing loads with a trio of preset profiles. Wheel travel measures in with 4.7 inches up front and 5.5 inches out back, which is appropriate for a bike with sporty chops like this one has.

Also new from 2019 are the Brembo Stylema calipers that rock radial-mount, four-pot, opposed-piston anchors up front to bite dual 320 mm discs, and out back, a twin-piston caliper and 250 mm disc takes care of business. Kawasaki’s own Intelligent Brake System provides cornering-ABS protection through the data it receives from the Inertial Measurement Unit, so you can safely get the most out of the brakes under all normal circumstances.

Cast-aluminum rims round out the rolling chassis with a five-spoke star pattern that mounts a 120/70-17 up front followed by a 190/55-17, and of course, the rubber has a “ZR” rating in keeping with the high-performance nature of this particular beast.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ Drivetrain

  • Supercharged 998 cc inline-four engine
  • Ride modes
  • Assist & slipper clutch
  • Cruise control

The beating heart in the Ninja H2 SX SE+ starts out with an in-line four layout that runs a 76 mm bore and 55 mm stroke to give it a 998 cc total displacement and compression ratio of 11.2-to-1. That compression ratio metric is a little misleading; it only reflects the difference in pressure based on the cylinder shape, combustion chamber, and piston profile along with con-rod length and crankshaft layout. Since the engine aspirates air that is first pressurized at the ram ports up front, then compressed further at the supercharger to deliver variable pressure depending on your airspeed, the actual pressure level can vary.

Dual over-head cams time the 16-valve head A quartet of throttle bodies manage the induction with a veritable alphabet-soup of ride-control wizardry to help you keep it dirty-side down. Traction control, launch control, and engine brake control protects the integrity of the rear contact patch with an electronic quick-shift feature that lets you switch gears seamlessly up and down the range sans clutch action. As for the clutch itself, it’s of the slipper sort that prevents excessive backtorque from threatening the rear patch and makes for a light pull at the lever.

Power flows through a six-speed transmission with 84.6 pound-feet of torque and 230 horsepower on tap to deliver an approximate top speed of 209 mph, though I imagine individual results may vary.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ Pricing

This kind of performance frequently brings with it a lofty pricetag, and while the $25,500 sticker isn’t exactly a pittance to most riders, it does deliver a lot of bike for your buck. It comes in a Emerald Blazed Green/Metallic Diablo Black/Metallic Graphite Gray tri-colorway for a look that is both understated and flashy at the same time.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ Competitors

Needless to say, this is a serious machine that deserves a serious challenger, so I went straight to Ducati for its Panigale V4.

Ducati Panigale V4

No, it isn’t supercharged like the Ninja, but nevertheless, you’d better respect the power of the V4. What kind of power? Well, the Eye-Tie measures in with 214 ponies and 91.5 pounds o’ grunt in a trade off against the Kawi’s 230/84.6, but I guarantee that neither will leaving you lacking for get-up-and-go.

I almost hate to bring up aesthetics, ’cause Ducati is a tough act to follow, so I’ll just say that the Ninja ain’t ugly, but the Panigale is straight-up sex on wheels, at least to mine eyes. It may not have a blower, but the Desmodromic valvetrain still sets the Panigale apart from the field.

Duc delivers fully-adjustable suspension, but it falls short of the electronic fandanglery the Ninja brings to the table. Of course, the Duc comes with an alphabet-soup of its own: rider modes, power modes, traction/wheelie/slide/engine-brake control, and a Bosch cornering-ABS feature to provide a similar level of ride-quality control and safety.

The base Panigale V4 rolls for $22,295, close enough to the Kawi I reckon, but if you just got to have that blower, you’d better be ready to skin that checkbook.

Read our full review of the Ducati Panigale V4.

He Said

“Kawi cranks out yet another stupidfast bike with the Ninja H2 SX SE+, but I have to wonder who it’s for. It isn’t a proper racebike, and so probably won’t be used on a closed circuit though I concede it would probably be a terror at novice drag-strips everywhere. At 200-plus mph, you’ll never do it justice on public roads — you’d better not, anyway — so what you’re paying for here is bragging rights and a conversation piece at the end of the day.”

She Said

My wife and fellow motorcycle writer, Allyn Hinton, says, “The Ninja SX SE+ is advertised as the ’hyper-tourer’ and I do see where they’re coming from. Martin Lambert, Kawasaki’s European PR Manager, describes it as “all whistles and bells.” After introducing the SX SE in Europe, the feedback, though positive, was filled with “but does it have this?” or “does it have that?” So the next phase was to give the SX SE those things. The electronic suspension is taken from the ZX-10RR and, of course, everyone is jumping on the app wagon. Kawasaki’s Rideology the App lets you become one with the machine, as it were.”

Kawasaki Ninja H2 / H2 Carbon Design

Those familiar with Kawasaki's history will recognize the 'river mark' badge as proof that the factory considers this pair to be models of historical significance.

No doubt about it, this is one radical machine right out of the box. The forward fairing is vaguely aircraft-like with a cyclops headlight that rides dead center and pierces the night with an LED projector. In fact, all of the lighting is of the LED variety this year, right down to the blinkers and the tag light. Kawi integrated the front turn signals and the mirror housings in a bid to keep windage to a minimum.

Not one to miss an opportunity, the factory gave the mirror stanchions a foil-shaped cross section. The shape works with the upper cowl and spoiler to generate extra downward forces that keep the front tire planted.

Those familiar with Kawasaki’s history will recognize the “river mark” badge that adorns the crest just above the headlight as proof that the factory considers this pair to be models of historical significance. The “Supercharged” emblem on the engine is also new and unique, but the real hot item in the looks department lies in the paint; not necessarily the color, but the technology behind it. Yeah, that’s right, I said “technology” in reference to paint. The clear coat is actually a composite with both hard and soft qualities that absorbs a certain amount of impact without it turning into a ding. Kawi calls it “self-repairing paint,” but in actuality, it seems more like it’s active paint that prevents the damage from occurring in the first place, like a “chemical spring.” No matter how you parse it, it’s some pretty cool stuff, right?

A bubble screen tops off the fairing as it punches a minimal hole for the pilot to hunker into, and it’s here at the upper fairing that the Carbon sets itself apart with naked carbon-fiber weave and Candy Flat Blazed Green (“blazed green,” really guys?). Behind the screen we find the updated instrumentation featuring a new, backlit, color TFT screen that displays speed, gear, boost level, and fuel economy and acts as an interface for the electronic wizardry. An analog gauge displays rpm with a half-ring of indicator lights to finish off the critical metrics, and new last year, you can network your smartphone with your motorcycle through the Rideology app.

As for the overall panache, the H2 has an essential nature that leaves much of the Trellis frame visible to give it an industrial look, and while I’m generally not a huge fan of the Kawi look, I have to admit that the H2 has a certain amount of intrinsic charm. Maybe it’s the solo seat that splits into three points of contact to keep you from sliding aft and the clipped subframe, it’s hard to pin down the exact source of the appeal, but I do know that you’d better be prepared to assume that Superman racing position wherever you go.

Clip-on bars and jockey-mount footpegs define an aggressive rider’s triangle that is great if you plan on hauling butt and throwing around some serious body English, but your wrists, shoulder, and neck will be uncomfortably loaded up when you’re not hauling booty.

Oh, and speaking of speed, the brake and clutch levers rock a windtunnel-tested design that minimizes drag so the levers don’t try to actuate from all that wind pressure. No, it’s not one of those bikes that will pull double-duty as an urban commuter, not comfortably anyway.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 / H2 Carbon Chassis

The Trellis frame is a marvel of engineering unto itself, a testament to the performance of the supercharged engine ensconced within.

The Trellis frame is a marvel of engineering unto itself. It comes with some serious buttressing, a testament to the performance of the supercharged lump ensconced within. Rake and trail measure out at 24.5 degrees and 4.1 inches, respectively, but it’s the Öhlins electronic steering damper that steals the show. It delivers variable stiffness based on speed, so the faster you go, the more kickback protection you’ll garner without it turning into a wrestling match at lower speeds.

The wizardry continues with a set of 43 mm, inverted KYB front forks that rock the full trinity of adjustments plus a set of top-out springs. Out back, the Öhlins TTX36 piggyback shock has rebound- and compression-damping features as well as spring preload, so you can dial in the ride quality just where you want it.

Model-specific, 17-inch, cast-aluminum rims keep unsprung weight down and lessen the gyroscopic forces generated by the wheels at speed. ZR-rated hoops round out the rolling chassis with a 120/70 up front opposite a 200/55. Also new for this year are the Brembo Stylema calipers with four opposed pistons set in a radial mount that bite dual 330 mm discs up front, followed by a twin-piston anchor and 250 mm disc out back. Both ends run under the vigilant protection of Kawasaki’s proprietary ABS feature — the KIBS — that reads data from the inertial-measurement unit to deliver corner-sensitive intervention.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 / H2 Carbon Drivetrain

Kawi designed this new engine around the supercharger that sets it apart from the rest of the field, turning in a top speed over 200 mph.

Kawi designed this new engine around the supercharger that sets it apart from the rest of the field, so let’s start there. The forged-aluminum impeller turns at 9.2-times crankshaft speed to produce a maximum of around 38 pounds of boost, but the system is designed to run cool enough that a heavy intercooler is unnecessary. Needless to say, this does wonders for the volumetric efficiency, and it shows up in the 104.9 pound-feet of torque that maxes out at 11,000 rpm. Horsepower is rumored to top out with 197 ponies at the wheel around 16,000 rpm to turn in a top speed around 209 mph. That’s right, it’s like that. I told you it wasn’t a wannabe-racer’s daily commuter.

Dual over-head cams time the 16-valve head with dual direct fuel injection to deliver the juice. Bore and stroke measure in at 76 mm and 55 mm, respectively, and the compression ration, well, is irrelevant because it’s so widely variable.

Power flows through a slipper clutch to the six-speed, constant-mesh transmixxer. Rather than sliding big, heavy gear clusters along the main/counter shafts to shift gears, this tranny leaves the gears engaged with their partners and shifts only a lightweight dog-ring device for a lighter and faster shift action. Plus, it comes with the Kawasaki Quick-Shift feature that works both up and down the range.

The wizardry is strong with this one. The H2 brothers include lean-sensitive traction control, launch control, engine brake control, and the Kawi Cornering Management Function in the electronics suites. Naturally, these systems are no substitute for skill, but they may help keep you alive while you acquire said skill.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 / H2 Carbon Pricing

MSRP is definitely up in the 'Noob Firewall' range starting at $29k.

Kawasaki looks to get a $29,000 starting price on the base Ninja H2 in Mirror Coated Spark Black. The Carbon is understandably a bit prouder at $32,500 with naked carbon at the upper front fairing and green highlights. That puts both models in the price range normally unreachable by beginning riders, thank goodness.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 / H2 Carbon Competitors

Kawi enjoys a bit of a monopoly on blown literbike mills.

Bikes with some sort of blower are a fairly rare thing. Right now, the H2 line has the newest game in town, but recent patent applications paint a picture of a burgeoning subgenre that is on the verge of a population explosion, relatively speaking. Suzuki seems to be in the 11th hour on development of not one, but two turbocharged units. It teased us with the Recursion and XE7 concepts at the Tokyo show, and it seems like one or both of those are about production ready. The bad news is, so far, it looks like it’s going to be a mid-size mill in the 600 cc range, so that places it much further down the foodchain with only around 74 pounds o’ grunt.

Red Riders, rejoice! Honda is getting back into the compressor game according to a 2017 patent application for a bike engine with a blower, but details are still sketchy and I’m not going to engage in idle speculation so we’ll kick this to the “wait and see” file. Sure, I could grab one of the ram-air induction models, but that’s child’s play compared to the pressure the H2 brings to the table, so for the time being, Kawi enjoys a bit of a monopoly on blown literbike mills.

He Said

“Right on. If this is the sort of thing you’re into, then you’re gonna’ dig it. For me, it is uncomfortable, and way too powerful to ever be able to drive it to its potential outside a slat flat or closed circuit. Not that most of us mere mortals have the chops to handle such a machine anyway, even with all the fandanglery. Make no mistake, this here is a stupid-fast bike of the first order, and you’d better respect it.”

She Said

My wife and fellow motorcycle writer, Allyn Hinton, says, “Suzuki teased us with the Recursion at the 2013 Tokyo show and kept the interest going with a look at the engine at the 2015 show. Maybe it’ll see the light of day again this year, but if it doesn’t, how long can Suzuki keep our interest? Like the Yamaha Ténéré 700, how long will interest hold before folks just say ’Whatever’ and move on to something else? That aside, the H2 and H2 Carbon are not for the faint-of-heart, and I question what’s really the point to having all that power if you’re just riding on public streets. Riding a fast bike slow isn’t nearly as much fun as riding a slow bike balls-to-the-wall, at least if you want to keep your motorcycle license, that is. It’s an awesome bike, I’ll give you that.”

Still the Fastest Accelerating Motorcycle In The World

Kawasaki H2R 0-200 mph in 16.83 seconds

The Kawasaki H2R is no stranger to the motoring world. Its launch back in 2015 came as a big surprise because we all thought that we had moved on from the Hyperbike top speed war when manufacturers agreed to limiting motorcycles to 300 km/h.

From that point forward, not much radical happened in that space, other than Kawasaki slightly one-upping Suzuki when they replaced their ZX-12R with the ZX-14R in 2006. Then in 2008 Suzuki revamped their legendary Suzuki Hayabusa with a larger engine and 200 crank horsepower.   Hayabusa vs H2R Here

Still both motorcycles were restricted to 300 km/h so now it was a case of who gets to that speed first. Arguably stock for stock the 14R probably had the slight edge but that comparison is for another day.

Kawasaki having a ‘slight’ edge was not enough, or maybe it was, either way Kawasaki kind of went Left-field and with the full might and prowess of Kawasaki Heavy Industries we got gifted the H2R quite unexpectedly.

What was very unexpected about the H2R was its crazy claimed power of 300 plus horsepower as well as it being a Supercharged motorcycle. The last Supercharged two-wheeler we had was actually and quite bizarrely a Scooter…. The Peugeot JetForce from way back in 2002/2003.

This was a 125 cc 4-stroke scooter with a Supercharger, bonkers hey!  Fact check me, but before that was the 1930s BMW type 255 but that is going way back. Litre bikes do not need superchargers they are fast enough you say but Kawasaki had other ideas.

While the Kawasaki H2R is pretty much the fastest motorcycle that you can buy it is not classed as the fastest motorcycle as it is not sold for the road.  It would not be hard in most markets to modify a H2R to make road legal as you could simply borrow parts from the road version – yep did not mention that.

Kawasaki also made a road legal version too with 200 hp and named it the Kawasaki H2.

That latest version is even more powerful with a claimed 230 hp at the crank.   If you want H2R power and madness legally on the road, it makes much more sense buying an H2 and making it H2R power rather than buying the H2R. Which in most places is about twice as expensive as the H2.

There are plenty of super powerful H2’s out there, many that make more power than the H2R.  Here are some of the popular builds below, all making close to or more than 300 horsepower at the wheels and are real 400 km/h / 248 mph motorcycles given a long enough stretch of tarmac.




How fast is a H2R?

Despite the 310 and 326 (with ram air) metric hp plus claims at the crank the H2R generally made between 230-240 horsepower at the wheels on a Dynojet dynamometer.

Sure, the H2R would likely make more power once moving, perhaps another 10 horsepower at the wheels but we can’t get away from the fact that the H2R makes a fair bit less than the numbers claimed by Kawasaki, and what we would normally expect at the rear wheel based upon their claims.

Typically, we lose around 10% through transmission losses from crank to rear wheel suggesting that the H2R if it made 310-326 hp at the crank should kick out around 280-290 horsepower at the rear wheels, but we just do not see these numbers.

There is varying opinion and conflicting data out there on the net as to how fast a stock H2R actually is. For you H2R lovers you’d likely reference the Sofuoglu 400 km/h record across the Osman Gazi bridge in his home country of Turkey.

That attempt was a PR fuzz and referenced only the HR’s speedometer with no actual GPS or timing gear used.  Motorcycle speedometers are horrendous and over read by as much as 12%.

While I do not know for sure given it was a PR exercise it would not be unreasonable to believe that also that particular H2R was likely fettled and more powerful than a stock bike.

A stock Kawasaki H2R is not even geared for 400 km/h.   The H2R typically makes its peak power of 240 hp at 12,500 rpm, which in 6th gear is a real 327 km/h and a little over 200 mph.

On a static dyno, the H2R holds onto its power till around 13,000 rpm and starts to tail off. (At speed it may hold on to its power until the rev limiter due to ram air effect)

On stock gearing a H2R would need to be able to rev and pull to 15250 rpm to reach the magic 400 km/h but the H2R does not rev that high. A H2R can barely rev beyond 14000 rpm in 6th despite the optimistic tachometer showing higher numbers.

14000 rpm in top on stock gearing is 367 km/h and 228 mph, though the H2R as stock unfortunately just does not have the power or the aerodynamics to pull to 14000 rpm in top.

Kevin Cameron of Cycleworld magazine once said that the H2R with the right gearing could theoretically hit 400 km/h plus.

All due respect to him but he was wrong, though likely he was basing that opinion off Kawasak’s 326 hp claim at the crank with ram air. Which if true would mean 290 hp at the wheels if taking into consideration the typical 10% transmission power losses.

A 290 hp bike even one with elephant aerodynamics like a H2R could possibly muscle its way to 400 km/h for sure, but not a H2R with 230-240 hp at the wheels.

So, he was right in saying ‘theoretically possible’ just that the H2R didn’t make the power he based his opinion on.

Best case for scenario for a stock H2R is 350km/h. But typically, anywhere between 330-350 km/h (205 mph/217 mph is what it would do Mr, depending on the bike, rider and conditions.

Kawasaki H2R Acceleration Review

Kawasaki H2R Acceleration and Top Speed

Even if the H2R makes less peak power than claimed, it is no doubt a ballistic motorcycle though with its 230/240 hp at the wheels and short wheelbase, like all big current Superbikes you can’t really put all of the power down until at least 100 mph/160km/h but for the H2R you really need to be above 125 mph/200 km/h and in 3rd or 4th but even then the front still wants to come up or the rear wants to light up.

Off the line the H2R is not that much faster than your average litre bike. 0-60 mph in 2.93 seconds and 0-100 mph in 5.12 seconds. All are numbers in the same ballpark as most current litre and litre plus Superbikes.

Wheelie and traction control only really hinder the H2R’s momentum with best results being with it all off and a skilful hand but don’t think you are going to win the traffic light GP on this bike every time as it is hard to get the most out of it from a dig.

What you need is the highway or a long runway for the H2R to assert its dominance over other motorcycles.  Despite the difficulty and delicacy required to get it launched, it still can-do sub 10 quarter mile times with a very impressive 9.64 seconds at 164 mph.

The majority of my runs were a mess of wheelies and mid tens at 150 plus mph.

The H2R then goes on to hit 0-180 mph in 11.77 and 0-200 mph in 16.83 seconds.

The Dragy standard benchmark of 60-130 mph is achieved in 4 seconds flat which is a great time by any standard but would be much faster if it were not for having to control for wheelies and wheel spin.

With a stretched swingarm, lowered and strapped it would probably do 60-130 mph a midge under 3 seconds and a quarter mile in the flat 8s at 170 plus mph would be my guess.

The Kawasaki H2R can accelerate from 0-300 km/h in 12.50 seconds.

For comparison your fastest litre bikes  such as he Yamaha R1 will get to 180 mph from a standing start in around 15-22 seconds depending on the bike and can nudge just under 10 for the quarter mile albeit with a 15-20 mph lower terminal speed. Here is an S1000RR for reference.

Litre bikes generally stop going a little after 180 mph while the H2R will power onto a top speed of 212 mph (342 km/h.

That is a long way from 400 km/h, a number that was never real in the first place.

The H2R will go down in history as one of the most bonkers bikes to ever be sold to the public.

There is nothing two wheeled and very little 4 wheeled you can purchase from a dealership that is faster than a H2R.

Speed h2 top

Kawasaki Ninja H2

This article is about the supercharged four-cylinder motorcycle announced in 2014. For the 3-cylinder motorcycle of the 1970s, see Kawasaki H2 Mach IV.

Motorcycle in the Ninja sportbike series

The Kawasaki Ninja H2 is a "supercharged supersport" classmotorcycle in the Ninjasportbike series, manufactured by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, featuring a variable-speed centrifugal-type supercharger.[9] The track-only variant is called Ninja H2R, and it is the fastest and most powerful production motorcycle on the market; it produces a maximum of 310 horsepower (230 kW) and 326 horsepower (243 kW) with ram air.[1] The H2R has 50% more power than the fastest street-legal motorcycles, while the street-legal Ninja H2 has a lower power output of 200 hp (150 kW)[13]–210 hp (160 kW) with ram air.[1]

Its namesake is the 750 cc Kawasaki H2 Mach IV,[15] an inline triple that was introduced by Kawasaki in 1972 to "disrupt what it saw as a sleeping motorcycle market".

H2R top speed[edit]


In June 2015, TT race competitor James Hillier rode a Kawasaki H2R as an inter-race demonstration lap, at near-race speeds,[17] using normal Superbike slick race tires,[18] around the 373⁄4-mile road course, leading to a roads TT record of the highest top speed attained in the Isle of Man by a motorcycle.[19] The top speed of "over 206 mph" (332 km/h) on the Sulby Straight was recorded on Hillier's personal StravaGPS smartphone app for cyclists.[20]


On June 30, 2016, Kenan Sofuoglu, a five-time world champion Supersport circuit-racer, made a top speed attempt.[21][22] Kawasaki supplied a stock H2R, other than special-formula rubber tires developed by Pirelli for the top speed attempt to withstand extreme high speeds, and the bike was supplied with race-grade fuel.[23] Sofuoglu was supplied with a special one-piece leather suit to enhance aerodynamics for his record attempt.[23]

This attempt, with the Turkish president in attendance, was made across the then-newly completed Osman Gazi Bridge, the fourth longest in the world at just over a mile and a half.[24] Kawasaki quoted the H2R maximum speed to be 380 kilometres per hour (240 mph).[25] After training and preparing for four months, a speed of 400 kilometres per hour (250 mph) in just 26 seconds was claimed by a video-recording of the bike's dashboard display.[7][26][27][28]

The speed was not officially confirmed or independently verified. No fixed point optical sensors for distance/speed calculations, chronometers or hand-held devices were used,[6] and later with a theoretical calculation,[29] of the distance he traveled in 26 seconds on the 8,799-foot-long (2,682 m) bridge. Cycle World's Kevin Cameron had calculated two years earlier that with the right gearing, the H2R's engine power could theoretically overcome aerodynamic drag up to 250–260 miles per hour (400–420 km/h).

Street-legal Ninja H2[edit]

The street-legal Ninja H2 has rear-view mirrors in place of the track-only H2R's wings.[13] It also has plastic body panels in place of the H2R's carbon fiber. The street-legal bike is said to make 200 horsepower (150 kW), probably with reduced supercharger boost compared to the H2R.[13] The H2 and H2R share the supercharger (with a lower boost level on the H2) and many other components, with the exception of head gasket, cam profile and timing with ECU mapping, and exhaust system as well as the R's clutch has two additional plates.[1]Cycle World recorded a 1/4 mile time of 9.62 sec. @ 152.01 mph (244.64 km/h) with a 0 to 60 mph acceleration at 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h).[34] Kent Kunitsugu, editor for Sport Rider magazine, competing in a land-speed racing event in Mojave, California at the Mojave Air and Space Port airfield in the Mojave Magnum land-speed racing, took a Ninja H2 with just a few bolt-on performance parts adding over 70 horsepower and achieved a top speed of 226.9 mph (365.2 km/h).[36][37]

For 2017, Kawasaki made a limited-edition model with 120 units produced globally: the individually-numbered Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon with special paint and carbon-fiber upper cowl. For 2017, the standard model Kawasaki Ninja H2 is also updated.[38]

For 2018, Kawasaki made a new sport touring version of the H2, the Kawasaki H2 SX, with a claimed wet weight of 256.1 kg (564.5 lb). Features that are options on the base model H2 SX come standard on the Kawasaki H2 SX SE, which has a claimed wet weight of 260.0 kg (573.3 lb).[39] With revised throttle bodies, camshafts, crankshaft, pistons, cylinder and cylinder head as well as a new exhaust system aimed at increasing mid range torque. The intake system and supercharger impeller were also redesigned. A new larger fuel tank, rear trellis subframe and panniers increase the bike's weight by 19 pounds (8.6 kg).[40]

For 2019, the H2 received an update with 15 percent more power from updates to the intake, plugs, ECU, air filter and more. There is new all LED lighting and a special top coat on the paint that is claimed to be self healing, which in warmer conditions, is able to smooth over small scratches. Also new are lighter and smaller Brembo Stylema calipers, a new TFT dash, plus smartphone connectivity that gives vehicle information about GPS route information, speed, rpm, gear position, fuel mileage, fuel level, and odometer.[41][42] In addition, the 2019 H2 SX SE+ version features Electronic Control Suspension.[43]

Speed record[edit]

On August 12, 2018, rider Shigeru Yamashita with an unofficial team of Kawasaki employees (known as Team 38)[44] set a 202.743 mph (326.28 km/h) speed record in the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) P-PB 1000 class for under-1,000 cc displacement production supercharged motorcycles with limited modifications at the Bonneville Speedway. On August 15, he broke his own record with a new speed of 209.442 mph (337.06 km/h).[33][45][46]


Kawasaki selected the literbike platform for its top-of-the-line Ninja H2-H2R model, rather than continuing with the higher-displacement hyperbikeNinja ZX-14. Kevin Cameron explained that the liter-class is "the center of the high-performance market", attracting the best development in racing, with the best chassis and suspension design, so it made sense for Kawasaki to create a machine that could leverage this.

Engine and supercharger[edit]

Cutaway H2R engine and supercharger. Orange painted plenum surrounds impeller, behind which is visible part of planetary gear system.

The H2-H2R engine is a 998 cc inline-4, four-valve, dual overhead cam design with a two-speed, centrifugalsupercharger. The supercharger is driven by a series of gears and shafts connecting the flywheel to a planetary drive, finally spinning a dog-shifted two-speed shaft attached to the impeller. Rider control is throttle by wire.

It is the first production motorcycle with a supercharger, although turbochargers were available on some models in the early 1980s.

A centrifugal supercharger has the advantage of generating less heat than other designs, especially scroll-type or screw-type superchargers. Excess heat in the intake charge can cause pre-ignition that will destroy the engine.

Electronic aids[edit]

Electronic rider aids include anti-lock braking system (ABS), traction control (KTRC), engine braking control (KEBC), Kawasaki quick shifter (KQS), electronic steering damper (ESD), and launch control (KLCM).[53][54]


The front fairing of the Ninja H2R incorporates stub-wings which are made of carbon fiber, just like the rest of the H2R-exclusive bodywork. They may be aerodynamic devices designed to create a low-pressure zone to help move cooling air through the engine bay, or to produce downforce at high speed, or to provide straight-line stability in a short-wheelbase sportbike chassis.


The H2 and H2R have a tubular, thin-wall steel trellis frame and a single-sided swingarm, with traditional sportbike wheelbase.

Explaining the advantages of the Kawasaki approach to exploiting aerodynamics instead of lengthening the wheelbase, a South African writer said "It's easy to build stability into a hard-accelerating drag machine with a long wheelbase...but Kawasaki wanted a track-day machine, one that would also go round corners."

High speed motorcycles often have long wheelbases: extra length is added by the extended swingarm on a typical dragbike; a typical land speed recordstreamliner has a meters-long wheelbase (3.7 meters for the current record holder, Ack Attack).

Pre-Intermot engine announcements and analysis[edit]

Engine shown at 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, supercharger has cover embossed "Kawasaki" to right of cylinders

The H2 was pre-announced by Kawasaki in a late 2014 teaser campaign, and was widely expected to be fully revealed at the Intermot trade show the same year. Before full details were released by Kawasaki, the supercharged inline-4 engine was thought by several industry observers to be identical to, or closely related to, a nearly 1,000 cc inline-4 unit with a centrifugal supercharger displayed by Kawasaki at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.[a]Kevin Cameron published an analysis showing an engine of that displacement, mildly boosted at 5 psi (34 kPa), would generate 203 horsepower (151 kW), beyond that of Kawasaki's current leader, the 191.7 horsepower (143.0 kW))[61]ZX-14 (the horsepower figures are expressed at the rear wheel). The same engine would generate 257 horsepower (192 kW) with 10 psi (69 kPa) of pressure. His analysis included a discussion of the benefits of a two-speed supercharger for this application, to provide more linear power delivery (as opposed to the intractable Japanese turbo bikes of the 1980s that suffered from turbo lag). Cameron also said Kawasaki patent documents suggested the engine would rely on evaporative cooling using port fuel injection, instead of a bulky intercooler.

Kawasaki claimed the 2013 model was the first supercharger designed by a motorcycle manufacturer. In 2013, journalists said that the engine could power the "next generation [Ninja] ZX-14R" sportbike. Journalists also noted that Kawasaki already has a production inline-4 supercharged (but intercooled[64]) engine powering the Jet Ski Ultra 300X personal water craft.

Production announcement[edit]

At the 2014 Intermot motorcycle trade show on September 30, 2014, Kawasaki announced that a race-only Ninja H2R model would be produced in addition to the street-legal, lower power, Ninja H2 which would be fully revealed at the EICMA trade show in November. The bike was shown for the first time in North America at the AIMExpo show at Orlando, Florida in October, 2014.

Kawasaki made public some details about the Kawasaki H2's engine at Intermot. It was confirmed to be a 998 cc inline-four engine with a supercharger, producing 300 horsepower (220 kW) in the H2R racetrack-only variant, still by far the highest rated engine ever for any factory production motorcycle, 50% more than its nearest competitor, the BMW S1000RR.


Global press coverage both before and after Intermot was extensive.

Before the full reveal of the H2R, reactions tended to emphasize the reintroduction of forced induction to the motorcycle marketplace, with headlines like "Hail the New Supercharged Era" (Autoevolution), "Supercharged Ninja imminent" (Motor Cycle News (UK)),[9] "New Kawasaki sports bike will use a 1000cc supercharged engine" (Visordown (UK)),2014 "Kawasaki officially uncovers Ninja H2 supercharger" (Cycle Online (Australia)), "Kawasaki Ninja H2: How the supercharger works" (Motociclismo (Italy)), and "Kawasaki's H2 superbike: A technical look at Kawasaki’s upcoming supercharged superbike" (Cycle World (United States)).

After the introduction, before any test rides had even been permitted, coverage turned to both the bike's unusual styling and its precedent setting power. Both industry and general-readership press said the machine "will beat up the supersport scene with a steam hammer" (Der Tagesspiegel), "smashes the superbike class" (Gizmag), is "a game changer" (Autoevolution) "a quantum leap into the future that redefines the way we see motorcycles" (Independent Newspapers), and "the poster child of 2-wheeled insanity ... so extreme it's hard to comprehend" (Road & Track), or was simply "radical" (Motor Cycle News) and even "ludicrous" (Bloomberg Businessweek).

Cycle World and Motor Cycle News both commented on how Kawasaki had claimed the high end of the market with the H2, moving past a stagnant market (at least from the Japanese Big Four manufacturers) full of cookie-cutter sportbikes and low-priced entry level bikes, and had set up the H2 as a halo model for the entire brand. Cycle World's Kevin Cameron said "When we look at the current crop of 1000s, all date from before our present "recession," and what little has come by way of new product has sought to please the mostly imaginary "new buyer" with low-tech delights." Highlighting Kawasaki's ability to create a product leveraging aerodynamic, turbine and engine technology design expertise from across the large Kawasaki Heavy Industries conglomerate (called a "vast industrial complex" by Sport Rider), an unsigned Motor Cycle News piece said "The H2R you see here is the very pinnacle of what Kawasaki can do ... This is the firm's halo product, and every element is Kawasaki at its very best, from the engine and aerodynamic development, through to the mirror-finish black chrome paint specially developed for this model."

Some analysts noted odd features of the supposedly track-only H2R model. Although it is outfitted with racing slicks and lacks many features required on a street-legal vehicle in most jurisdictions, such as headlights, rear view mirrors, and turn signals visible from the front or sides, it also has features that are unusual or absent on pure track bikes, such as an ignition lock and LED tail lights.

The Kawasaki Z H2 0-60 mph in 2.91 seconds

The Kawasaki Z H2 is a naked version of Kawasaki’s extremely capable H2 motorcycle.

Currently the Kawasaki Z H2is one of the most powerful ‘Super Naked’ motorcycle on the market. Below we have top speed and acceleration data through the gears accompanied with Dyno Curve and Thrust Curve graphs.

The Kawasaki Z H2 is powered by the same 998 cc Supercharged engine found in the H2 SX and the H2. It has a claimed 200 horsepower at the crank and in its current guise at the rear wheel it produces 178 horsepower at 10500 rpm and 92 ft/lb at 9000 rpm.
These kinds of numbers are totally bonkers for a naked motorcycle.

The engine is probably one of the smoothest big-bore engines on the market as it drives exceptionally smooth from tick over even in higher gears. The delivery as you ask for power is probably unrivalled in its linearity and is almost Honda like with very little if no peaks or troughs.

The Honda comparison ends right there though as the more you ask of the engine the more it builds up intensity unlike any other motorcycle other than Kawasaki’s own H2 and H2 SX. The Z H2 loves to be revved hard and sounds amazing as you thrash it through the gears.

Kawasaki Z H2 Dyno Curve

Kawasaki Z H2 Thrust curve and in gear acceleration

Due to having a 998 cc displacement and rocking a Supercharger, the Kawasaki Z H2 is one of the most responsive engines available.

While some rivals may have the edge in available acceleration in the lower gears, their advantage (If any) is not something that can really be capitalised upon as there is often just too much thrust and acceleration available for rivals and the Z H2 in the lower gears but everywhere else it is hugely dominant.

For example, the Z H2 offers more acceleration in any gear at any speed below 140 mph than a Gen two Hayabusa.

Either way on the Z H2 you will never be wanting more acceleration, and it also really does not matter what gear you are in just open throttle and the Z H2 will respond instantly and fire you down the road. It has almost too much acceleration available to it on the road but that won’t stop many looking for more power as they tune the Z H2.

Kawasaki Z H2  Acceleration through the gears

The Z H2 delivers some great acceleration times as to be expected from making close to 180 horsepower at the rear wheels. 0-60 mph is limited by wheelies and could be much better if the Z H2 was lowered or strapped. Either way the Z H2 manages under 3 seconds at only 2.91 seconds.  0-100 km/h for the Z H2 does not quite break the 3 second mark and manages a time of 3.04 seconds.

Like many big powerful bikes 0-60 mph or 0-100km/h times are pointless measurements. It is beyond those speed that pride a more accurate picture.  Zero to 100 mph if you take second gear right to the rev limiter comes up in 5.32 seconds and 0-200 km/h in only 7.26 seconds.

The Z H2 could probably break into the 9s on the quarter mile if all stars aligned though manages a 10.13 with a terminal speed of 146 mph.  The Dragy 60-130 mph time is a blistering 4.88 seconds only.

If you have the balls to hold on for long enough and your neck can withstand the wind drag the Kawasaki Z H2 will hit a real 176.8 mph top speed though would probably would not want to go more than 150 mph.
