The Kawasaki Spirit Charger makes its debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The motorcycle is still in concept stage and is based on Kawasaki's Ninja H2 and H2R motorcycles.
There is a high possibility that Kawasaki could use the technology developed for Spirit Charger concept on all future motorcycles. Kawasaki has decided to take a step into the future with supercharged motorcycles. The supercharger* will be used in most of their inline four-cylinder engines.
The Spirit Charger 01 concept uses an electronically controlled flap ahead of the supercharger, which provides the supercharger with an adequate volume of air intake; the flap will also take care of the air flow direction. All these changes will improve engine efficiency and return better mileage.
Globally, Kawasaki offers a wide range of litre-class and Supersport motorcycles. Several of these models have recently been updated and next time around they could be getting superchargers as a major update. Kawasaki believes supercharged motorcycles is the way ahead.
Recently, Kawasaki provided the 2016 Ninja H2 and H2R motorcycle with an all-new paint scheme. At the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, Kawasaki showcased the new paint scheme, along with the supercharged engine, and the Spirit Charger 01 Concept motorcycle.
*A supercharger is an air compressor that increases the pressure or density of air supplied to an internal combustion engine, thus increasing power.
