Kawasaki Teases the Upcoming Ninja H2, Is It the Supercharged Machine?



Kawasaki has revealed the name of the new member in the Ninja family, but the rest of the details remain a well-kept secret. The new Ninja is called H2, and we suspect it will be a machine powered by a supercharged engine, possibly the one the house of Akashi introduced last autumn.

So far these are only speculations, though it seems like this story might turn out to be true, after all. The blacked-out profile of the Ninja H2 was shown in the first video teaser Kawasaki, and the lines clearly belong to a sport bike, making sense to see Akashi delivering a new high-performance machine to change a bit the rules of the game.

As Kawasaki says, the H2 embodies the spirit of three past models, the Mach IV H2, the 3-cylinder H1 and the Z1 Super Four, so we’re most likely in for a modern reinterpretation of the old-school Kawasaki sport bike approach.

Some believe that Kawasaki will deliver a 2-stroke machine, reviving the rather lost era of the 2-stroke sport bikes, but again, this is also pure speculation. Considering the current market trends, a high-power turbocharged engine would make much more sense, especially as it would allow the bike to retain a fairly small displacement while maintaining or even improving the power figures. With a smaller displacement, emissions and fuel consumption would also be lower so everybody should be happy, provided that the price is right.



Even more, Suzuki has already unveiled their plans to go turbo with new models, while Honda is also rumored to work on a supercharged new engine, with the same ultimate goal of delivering more power from smaller engines.

The all-new Kawasaki Ninja H2 is said to break cover at the end of the month at the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany, but more teasers are expected to surface in the meantime. Make sure you check back with autoevolution for the next info on the Ninja H2.
