The Japanese performance bikes manufacturer, Kawasaki has put the updated range of Ninja H2 for pre-bookings from 1 September. The bookings will continue till 30 November through the company’s authorised dealerships. At the global front, the litre class superbike is available in three variants of Ninja H2, Ninja H2 Carbon and Ninja H2R, but in a limited count.
Developed on a tubular trellis frame, the Ninja H2 is loaded with a 998cc inline four engine supported with a supercharger. At the skin, all the three Ninjas are distinct. The Ninja H2 gets a mirror paint finish, the Ninja H2 gains a carbon fibre upper cowl and distinctive silver mirror paint. While, the Ninja H2R which receives a bare carbon fibre finish for the entire body, can only be differentiated with others by its cowl winglets and aerodynamic extensions. The Ninja H2R is the world’s fastest bike available to purchase. Apart from the revised paint schemes we can also expect the revivement of equipped electronic package with the 2018 range of motorcycles.
In terms of power output while the other two bikes are capable to produce 200bhp, the Ninja H2R on the other hand with the aids of revised engine components spits out the maximum power of 300bhp. Last year, WSBK rider Kenan Sofuoglu on an unrestricted Ninja H2R breached the top speed record of 400 mph barrier on on the Osman Gazi bridge in Turkey. While the Ninja H2 and Ninja H2 Carbon are road-legal, the H2R is a track focused bike.
In terms of Indian arrival of these 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 range, we can expect, the bike maker could allocate a few units here.
