  • BOSCH® IMU (INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT): Compact IMU enables inertia along 6 Degrees of Freedom to be monitored. Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse and vertical axes, plus roll rate and pitch are measured. The yaw rate is calculated by the ECU using Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modeling software. This next-level system enables predictive and adaptive electronics for precise chassis orientation awareness.
  • KTRC (KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL): Whereas many competitive traction control systems react to wheel-slip, this IMU-enhanced feedback version of KTRC predicts conditions and acts before slippage exceeds the range for optimal traction. When turned on, riders can choose from 9 modes, allowing riders to choose the degree in which each mode intervenes during riding. Riders may also elect to turn the system off. Modes 1-3 are optimized for track conditions, Modes 4-6 for the street, and Modes 7-9 for wet pavement conditions. A rain mode is also available.
  • KLCM (KAWAWAKI LAUNCH CONTROL MODE): 3-mode KLCM provides unmatchable acceleration from a stop by electronically controlling engine output to minimize rear wheel-slip and front end lift. Launch Control Mode allows the rider to launch from a stop with the throttle held wide open.
  • ​ÖHLINS® ELECTRONIC STEERING DAMPER: The Öhlins® electronic steering damper adjusts damping based on a number of inputs. At lower speeds, damping is lessened. As speed increases, steering damping increases for optimal performance.
  • KQS (KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER): Complementing the engine’s strong power and the dog-ring transmission, a contactless-type quick shifter enables quick upshifts seamless acceleration, The KQS enables clutchless downshifts for quick and smooth deceleration.
  • KIBS (KAWASAKI INTELLIGENT ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM): IMU enabled Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) is a supersport-grade high-precision multi-sensing ABS brake assistance system. Uses high-precision control to modulate brake pressure during sport riding.
  • KEBC (KAWASAKI ENGINE BRAKE CONTROL): This system allows riders to set engine braking according to preference. When the system is activated, the engine braking effect is reduced, providing less interference when riding on the circuit.

Performance

  • PREMIUM PERFORMANCE:​ The massive power of the supercharged engine necessitates a multitude of high-performance components to ensure an unforgettably effortless, yet forceful experience.
  • MOTOGP™–STYLE​ DOG–RING TRANSMISSION: Commonly found in high-performance racing machines, the dog-ring transmission allows for effortless, short shifts. Rather than shifting gears into place, the gears in this configuration stay in place, with the lightweight dog rings moving to engage the gears. A high-precision hydraulic clutch features Brembo® components for smooth actuation and top performance.
  • FULLY ADJUSTABLE ​HIGH–PERFORMANCE RACING SUSPENSION: New Öhlins® TTX36 rear shock offers precise damping for enhanced traction, comfort and feedback to the rider. New Öhlins TTX36 rear shock features a remote shock preload adjuster making it easy to adjust settings without tools to suit rider preference. The KYB® AOS-II (Air-Oil-Separate) low friction cartridge fork offers superb action; initial stroke is smooth and compliant followed by progressive damping through the end of the stroke. The front fork is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping, as well as preload.
  • ​​BREMBO STYLEMA® CALIPERS: dual radial-mount, opposed 4-piston Brembo Stylema® front calipers grip semi-floating 330mm discs for aggressive braking, Equipped with Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) ABS to complement the technical innovation and premium quality of the Ninja H2™, Brembo clutch and front brake levers were designed to prevent wind force from engaging the levers while at higher speed.
  • WHEELS AND TIRES: The lightweight cast aluminum wheels were designed specifically for the Ninja H2™ and were created using analysis from Kawasaki’s World Superbike team. Star-pattern 5-spoke wheels offer optimum rigidity for high-power performance and feature new pinstripes for a prestigious image. Bridgestone Battlax RS11 sport tires contribute to improved handling.

Styling

  • STUNNING AERODYNAMIC STYLING: ​The Ninja H2™ motorcycle design projects intense force becoming a product of functional beauty. Each and every angle is designed to contribute unprecedented performance and style.​​​
  • AERODYNAMIC DEVICES: Designed by KHI’s Aerospace Company, the mirror stays feature airfoil cross-sections with Gurney flaps that contribute to downforce generation. A chin spoiler on the upper cowl is also function disguised in form, further contributing to downforce generation.
  • TRELLIS FRAME: The trellis frame provides the strength to harness the incredible power of the supercharged engine and the balanced flex to achieve optimal rigidity and pliability for aggressive sport riding.
  • HISTORIC RIVER MARK EMBLEM: Reserved only for models of historical significance, the iconic Kawasaki River Mark is featured prominently on the front cowl. The River Mark dates back to the earliest days of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. and has been used on select motorcycle models since the 1960s.
  • HIGHLY DURABLE SELF-REPAIRING PAINT: Features a special top coat on all non-carbon bodywork parts that allows​ certain types of scratches to repair themselves, enabling the paint to maintain its high-quality finish through normal wear and tear, Self-healing is achieved through microscopic soft and hard segments within the top coat to work like a chemical spring that creates a trampoline effect to absorb impacts, Developed by KHI, the Mirror Coated Spark Black paint on the tank, fairing, and seat cowl is one of a kind, In the shade, the dark base coat shows through the silver for a deep, 3D appearance. In the sun, the silver creates a brilliant metallic effect
  • TFT COLOR INSTRUMENTATION: An analogue-style tachometer is complemented by a high-grade full-color TFT LCD screen, enabling information to be displayed graphically. Four selectable display modes allow you to prioritize the information you want to see, The high-grade, full-color display ensures a high level of visibility. Select between a black or white background with the touch of a button while screen brightness adjusts automatically, In addition to a digital speedometer and gear position indicator, display functionsinclude: odometer, dual trip meters, current mileage, average mileage, fuel consumption, bank angle display and max bank angle recording function, coolant temperature, boost indicator, boost (intake air chamber) temperature, clock, Economical Riding Indicator, and IMU indicator.
  • ALL-LED LIGHTING: For a bright and more efficient look, all light equipment now utilizes LED technology, including turn signals and license plate lamp.

Supercharged Power

  • IN-HOUSE-DESIGNED SUPERCHARGER: Chosen for its high-rpm performance, the centrifugal-type supercharger is incredibly efficient at compressing air (at up to 2.4x atmospheric pressure) while minimizing heat. As a result of the supercharger’s efficiency, no large, heavy intercooler was required to cool the compressed air. The supercharger was designed to match the engine, allowing high-efficiency operation over a wider range of conditions that could not be provided by a typical supercharger.
  • ​​IMMENSE POWER: ​The Ninja H2™ streetbike's supercharged engine creates unprecedented power for remarkable acceleration. The heavy growl of the boosted liter-class engine is a sound the streets won't soon forget.
  • SUPERCHARGER IMPELLER: The complex shape of the impeller is 3D machined from forged aluminum for high precision and durability. The impeller spins at 9.2x speed of the crankshaft, reaching speeds of nearly 130,000 rpm, pumping a capacity of over 200 liters of air per second into the engine.
  • THE PLANETARY GEAR: Designed using technology from KHI’s Aerospace Company, the planetary gear is incredibly compact and efficient at transferring power. The planetary gear runs off power from the crankshaft, driving the impeller (via a “step-up” gear) to incredibly high rpm.
  • 998cc INLINE ​4-CYLINDER ENGINE: The engine was painstakingly crafted to accomodate the extreme air pressure created by a supercharger. Cast (rather than forged) through a unique process, the pistons of the Ninja H2™ are lightweight - yet strong - and able to withstand extremely high temperatures. The precision-honed combustion chamber is complemented by a flat piston crown inspired by technology from KHI's Gas Turbine & Machinery Company that helps prevent detonation. Assist and slipper clutch offers light clutch pull and minimizes wheel chatter caused by aggressive downshifting.
