2015 EICMA: Kawasaki Ninja H2 And Ninja H2R

It has been a year now since Kawasaki strung us along with what seemed like endless teaser videos for its Ninja H2 and Ninja H2R superbikes. Letís revisit what made them so popular. Boasting 998cc from its inline-Four, the H2 brethren represents Kawasakiís flagship motorcycle. Letís not forget the supercharger attached to both models, giving them a healthy amount of torque without the need for an intercooler. The trellis frame, Brembo M50 brakes, and traction control, among other things, helped the H2 line handle about as well as it accelerated.

For 2016, though, Kawasaki announced it would be adding an assist and slipper clutch to both H2 machines. Kawi says the assisted clutch will make lever pressure 40% lighter, which will help reduce rider fatigue on longer rides. The slipper function will help to avoid rear wheel hop during rapid downshifts.

Kawasaki also announced it would be offering another order period for customers not able to purchase an H2 or H2R during the first round of orders earlier this year.

Both motorcycles are now available in Mirror Coated Spark Black which is a revised silver-mirror paint that includes glass flakes in the first clear coat to catch the light.

Pricing for the 2016 H2 is $26,000, while the 2016 H2R is $53,000.
