If you are looking for a real, authentic Japanese bike that is both lightweight and powerful, then the Kawasaki Ninja H2R may be exactly what you need. Kawasaki's Ninja H2R models feature all of the great design elements of the real Japanese racers, but are lighter and much easier to handle for the novice rider. At the heart of this powerful Ninja H2R model is an ultra-efficient 9 1898cc inline-six engine that produces 300 horsepower. You didn't read that number wrong. Wrapped from it all up in a handsome steel-tubed frame, the Ninja H2R rides on a pair of YSRIID monoshock engines.
The Ninja H2R may be full-fledged sportsbike, but the heart and soul is really reserved for its street legal second division. This low-powered, but supercharger powered machine was originally developed as a limited-edition road legal bike for the Japanese domestic market. Limited to just 300 units, the limited edition Kawasaki Ninja H2R was limited to a top speed of 45mph. Today, however, the limited edition is now available as a street legal motorcycle in Japan, Europe, Australia, South Africa, Thailand, and the United States. Because of its high output and low weight, this powerful motorcycle is highly recommended for any rider who is planning on riding it off road or in any area where liability is not an issue.
The Ninja H2R features a sporty two-piece foot-paddle style saddle that is comfortable and light. The seat is designed with an adjustable air struts that allow it to adapt to the unique needs of each rider. This supercharger exhaust system offers a high-tech performance with a long life. A specially designed water pump draws gallons of water for cooling and acceleration. The air intake system offers variable settings for intake port tuning and variable airflow through the engine response and throttle response.
For maximum rider control, the Ninja H2R features lightweight front and rear sets of wings with hydraulic struts. The front winglets have been cleverly relocated to increase overall width by five percent. This feature is called “winglets for dynamic braking” and helps the Ninja's supercharger and air restrict the flow of air into the engine, greatly improving the acceleration of the bike. Both the supercharger and airbox are enclosed to improve aerodynamic effects.
The powerful Ninja H2R engine produces more power than a Honda Vitz or other lightweight motorcycles with similar displacement. At the same time, it has less weight and requires much less fuel to operate. Although it produces more power and is quicker than its competitors, the Ninja H2r runs cooler. The factory bumpers and covers absorb most of the vibration and speed from passing cars, which is why Ninja recommends the use of aftermarket bumper covers. This way, you can enjoy the quietness of riding your motorcycle without worrying about disturbing nearby neighbors or the chirping of nearby birds.
One of the most attractive features of the Ninja H2r is its strong frame, which is both light-weight and durable. Kawasaki is particularly proud of its magnesium-alloy frame, which is stronger than the steel frames commonly used in competing manufacturers' bikes. This material provides excellent strength-to-weight ratio. In addition, the bike's high-tech suspension system responds better to the irregularities of wind and road surfaces, enabling it to operate at even higher speeds than its competitors.
The Ninja H2r comes with standard, factory sound deadening materials such as nickel plating on the forks and mufflers. The exhaust has aggressive shape to maximize sound output, while doubling down on noise output in order to remain quiet. This permits riders to enjoy their rides at lower volumes. For added customization, you can upgrade to the optional Ninja Flap, a carbon fiber monstrum that is painted black for a striking contrast. Other optional accessories include a set of side plates, a front fender, a two-pipe exhaust, and a leather covered saddle. If you want to customize your Ninja H2r further, you can always purchase replacement parts.
Overall, the Ninja H2r is one of the best superchargers for Honda motorcycles. It produces more horsepower than its competitor, the Kawasaki Ninja Zuma, by 150 cc. Moreover, it doesn't compromise on high-performance parts for the sake of efficiency. The result is that the Ninja H2r offers real performance for the money, as it reaches speeds of 250 miles per hour. With regular tuning, you can expect the mileage to increase significantly.
