A new bike has just been announced – the Kawasaki Ninja H2. Here’s what the press release has to say about what is possibly going to be a fully-faired, supercharged sports machine:
“With cutting-edge performance recognised as a core element of the Kawasaki worldwide DNA, the company will showcase yet another ground-breaking motorcycle at the Intermot Motorcycle Show in Cologne starting on Sept 30th. A motorcycle “Built Beyond Belief”.
“Drawing on skills and experience from experts within not just the company’s motorcycle division but across its aerospace, gas turbine and other high-technology contemporary manufacturing disciplines as well, Kawasaki is anticipating huge international interest in the project that has evocatively been christened Ninja H2. Harnessing the power of the Kawasaki manufacturing group “collective strength”, the H2 will represent a unified engineering and state of the art technology approach
“Capturing the spirit of the 750cc Mach IV H2 that, along with the 500cc three cylinder H1 and all-conquering 903cc Z1 Super Four, epitomised Kawasaki’s market defining performance image, the Ninja H2 project is set to add yet another name to the roll call of machines that embody Kawasaki’s performance and engineering expertise while changing the motorcycle landscape forever.”
A video gives some very minor styling clues, and as soon as we have some more information, we’ll let you know. Martin Lambert, Kawasaki Motors UK Communications and PR manager told MoreBikes “Ninja and H2 are what you might justifiably regard as part of Kawasaki’s crown jewels as far brand icons are concerned. To have the two combined hints at the significance of this new model in respect of Kawasaki’s worldwide image both in terms of performance and also cutting-edge technology”.
