Ninja H2 Carbon

BUILT BEYOND BELIEF
The release of the 2015 Ninja H2 was met with astonishment.The culmination of an unprecedented level of intercompany collaboration within the Kawasaki Group, the world’s only mass-produced supercharged supersport model was a testament to Kawasaki’s technological prowess. Numerous engineering innovations made possible its phenomenal performance.Exquisite craftsmanship and styling caused heads to turn and jaws to drop. But what really impressed was the unique sensory experience offered by any who dared to ride it. The combination of intense acceleration and supersport-level circuit handling was unlike anything a naturally aspirated machine could provide. For 2017, an upgraded Ninja H2 benefits from numerous updates, including Kawasaki’s most advanced electronics package, and suppler suspension action care of a high-grade Öhlins TTX rear shock. Further, the standard model is joined by the Ninja H2 Carbon, a limited edition model featuring a carbon-fibre upper cowl. Ninja fans can look forward to an even more exhilarating experience.
KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)
The Ninja H2 was the first Kawasaki motorcycle to be fit standard with a quick shifter. For 2017, the quick shifter also enables clutchless downshifts. Complementing the engine’s strong power and the dog-ring transmission, a contactless-type quick shifter enables quick upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and quick and easy deceleration.
Dog-ring Transmission
To facilitate smooth, quick shifting, a dog-ring type transmission was selected. This is the kind of transmission commonly found in MotoGP or Formula 1, and was developed with feedback from the Kawasaki Racing Team.
ÖHLINS TTX36 REAR SUSPENSION
The addition of Öhlins’ highly acclaimed TTX shock offers numerous rider benefits: * Increased rear stability, which contributes to enhanced cornering performance. Supple suspension action conveys the feeling of excellent damping and contributes to increased riding comfort and sportier handling in the hills. * Increased rear stability also contributes to a more planted feel at the front, contributing to increased rider confidence when riding on the circuit. * Superb feedback from the road. * On the highway the bike feels even more stable at speed, and lane changes are executed more easily. * Around town, the supple suspension absorbs bumps with ease, adding to ride comfort.
SINGLE-SIDED SWINGARM
The Ninja H2 features Kawasaki’s first single-sided swingarm. Having a single-sided swingarm allows the exhaust silencer to be mounted closer to the bike centreline, ensuring a high bank angle for sporty cornering.
SHAPED FOR SPEED
As speed increases, wind resistance increases exponentially. To enable high-speed operation, a combination of high power and slippery aerodynamics was needed. With power requirements taken care of by the supercharged engine, the next step was to design bodywork that both minimized drag and added control when riding at high speed. Assistance from Kawasaki’s Aerospace Company was enlisted in creating the aerodynamically sculpted bodywork to ensure maximum aerodynamic efficiency. It is no accident that when viewed from the side, the Ninja H2 does not seem to have the aggressive forward-canted stance of most modern supersport models. While supersport bikes use their front-leaning attitude to aid in quick steering, at the speeds for which the closed-course Ninja H2R was designed, such a posture would create drag that would hinder top speed aspirations. Instead, the stance is very neutral, almost flat—think Formula 1 car—to make the body as aerodynamically sleek as possible.
