Kawasaki, in a company statement, has announced that the motorcycle manufacturer has launched the Ninja H2, the limited edition Ninja H2 Carbon, and the track focused H2R in India.
The Kawasaki Ninja H2 and H2R share the same engine, a 998cc in-line four-cylinder supercharged motor, with different states of tune. The H2 makes 197bhp, while the H2R produces 310bhp.
Also, the H2 and the H2R share other components such as the trellis frame, aerodynamic bodywork, one-sided swingarm, Brembo brakes, and more.
For 2016, the Ninja H2 received a new Assist and Slipper clutch that helps the lever pressure to operate 40 percent lighter compared to before and help execute aggressive downshifts, like on a track day.
The upgraded 2017 Ninja H2 and H2R come with changes such as Kawasaki's electronics package that now combines the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), updated Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), and Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-Lock Braking System (KIBS).
Both motorcycles also come with revised exhaust systems to meet the latest emission requirements, quick shifter, and tailored ergonomics through Kawasaki Genuine Accessories that allow owners to customize their riding position with an ERGO-FIT raised handlebar kit.
Suspension duties are taken care by Öhlins TTX shock at the rear. The motorcycles also get updated instrumentation that comes with bank angle display and max bank angle recording function. Included with the instrumentation is an updated boost indicator and an IMU indicator.
The road legal H2 is now available in a limited edition called the Ninja H2 Carbon that features a carbon-fibre upper cowl. The H2 Carbon was first featured during the Paris Motor Show that took place in the recent past.
Only 120 units of the carbon variant will be made, and each of the Carbon model will be individually numbered on the motorcycle's supercharger plate, located on the right side of the engine.
