Its namesake could be the 750 cc Kawasaki H2 Mach IV, an inline triple that was introduced by Kawasaki in 1972 to “disrupt exactly what they saw as a sleep bike market”.
In June 2015, TT race competition James Hillier rode a Kawasaki H2R as an inter-race demonstration lap at on regular Superbike slick battle tires around the 37-mile roadway course, causing a roads TT record associated with greatest top speed reached in the Isle of Man by a motorcycle. The very best speeds of “over 206 mph” regarding Sulby directly is recorded on Hillier’s personal Strava GPS smartphone app for cyclists.
On June 30, 2016, Kenan Sofuoglu, more effective five-time world champ Supersport circuit-racer, made a top speeds attempt. Sofuoglu, sponsored by Kawasaki , had been supplied with an inventory H2R, other than special-formula plastic tires developed by Pirelli for top speed try to withstand extreme high speeds, additionally the cycle was supplied with race-grade fuel. Sofuoglu ended up being provided with a special one-piece fabric suit by Rev’It! to boost aerodynamics for their record effort .
This effort endorsed by the Turkish president, is made throughout the recently complete Osman Gazi connection, the 4th longest in the world at just over a mile and a half. Kawasaki quoted the H2R greatest speeds becoming 380 kilometres each hour. After education and finding your way through four period, Sofuoglu moved 400 kilometres each hour within 26 moments with a video clip recording the cycle’s dashboard display.
The attempt wasn’t verified with any chronometers or GPS or radar, only recorded by the bicycle’s on-board computers, and later with a theoretical calculation, of this distance he traveled in 26 moments on 8,799 feet longer connection. Cycle earth’s Kevin Cameron had computed couple of years early in the day that with the proper gearing, the H2R’s engine power could theoretically get over aerodynamic drag up to 250Ã¢Â€Â“260 kilometers hourly.

Associated Ninja H2R
The street-legal Ninja H2 possess rear-view mirrors in the place of the track-only H2R’s wings. In addition have synthetic human anatomy panels rather than the H2R’s carbon dietary fiber. The street-legal bicycle was thought to render 200 horsepower, most likely with reduced supercharger increase compared to the H2R. The H2 and H2R share the supercharger and lots of more equipment, except for head gasket, cam profile and timing with ECU mapping, and exhaust program along with the RÃ¢Â€Â™s clutch possess two further dishes. Cycle globe has recorded a 1/4 mile period of 9.62 sec. @ 152.01 miles per hour with a 0 to 60 miles per hour speed at 2.6 moments and a premier speeds of 183 miles per hour. Kent Kunitsugu, editor for athletics Rider mag, competing in a land-speed racing celebration in Mojave, Ca during the Mojave Air and Space slot airfield into the Mojave Magnum land-speed race, took a Ninja H2 in just several bolt-on efficiency areas adding over 70 horsepower to a top speed of 226.9 mph.
For 2017 Kawasaki features revealed a limited-edition model with 120 devices produced globally. The Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon with special paint and carbon-fiber higher cowl and separately numbered. For 2017 the beds base model Kawasaki Ninja H2 normally updated.
Kawasaki chosen the literbike platform for the top-of-the-line Ninja H2-H2R design, instead of continuing with all the higher-displacement hyperbike Ninja ZX-14. Kevin Cameron explained the liter-class are “the center of the high-performance market”, attracting a development in racing, with the ideal chassis and suspension system design, so it made feeling for Kawasaki to create a device might leverage this.
Engine and supercharger
Cutaway H2R system and supercharger. Lime painted plenum surrounds impeller, behind which is noticeable element of planetary gear system.
The H2-H2R system try a 998 cc inline-4, four-valve, twin overhead cam design with a two-speed, centrifigual supercharger. The supercharger try driven by a series of gears and shafts connecting the flywheel to a planetary drive, finally spinning a dog-shifted two-speed shaft connected to the impeller. Rider control is throttle by cable.
It will be the earliest manufacturing motorcycle with a supercharger, although turbochargers had been on some brands in the early 1980s.
A centrifugal supercharger has got the advantage of producing less heat than many other designs, specifically scroll-type or screw-type superchargers. Excess temperature in the intake fee causes pre-ignition that destroy the motor.
Numerous observers said the Ninja H2-H2R could possibly be likely to have actually digital rider helps including anti-lock stopping program, grip control, motor braking control, and launch control.
The front fairing associated with Ninja H2R features said to appear to be wings, made from carbon fiber like the remaining portion of the bodywork. They might be aerodynamic products made to generate a low-pressure area to assist go air conditioning environment through the system bay, or even to build downforce at high speed, or even to create straight-line stability in a short-wheelbase sportbike chassis.
The H2-H2R has a tubular, thin-wall steel trellis framework and a single-sided swingarm, with old-fashioned sportbike wheelbase.
Describing the benefits of the Kawasaki method of exploiting aerodynamics as opposed to lengthening the wheelbase, a South African publisher stated “you can create stability into a hard-accelerating drag machine with a lengthy wheelbase…but Kawasaki wished a track-day machine, the one that would furthermore go round corners.”
High-speed motorbikes often have lengthy wheelbases: additional size is added because of the extensive swingarm on an average dragbike; a normal land rate record streamliner possess a meters-long wheelbase.
Pre-Intermot system notices and review
Motor revealed at 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, supercharger has actually protect embossed “Kawasaki” to right of cylinders
The H2 had been pre-announced by Kawasaki in a late 2014 teaser campaign, and ended up being extensively likely to be totally unveiled at the Intermot trade show similar seasons. Before complete facts were revealed by Kawasaki, the supercharged inline-4 motor ended up being thought by several business observers becoming exactly the same as, or closely pertaining to, a nearly 1,000 cc inline-4 product with a centrifugal supercharger displayed by Kawasaki at 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. Kevin Cameron published an analysis showing an engine of that displacement, mildly boosted at 5 psi, would create 203 horse power, beyond compared to Kawasaki’s current frontrunner, the 191.7 horsepower) ZX-14. Equivalent engine would generate 257 horse power with 10 psi of force. Their analysis included a discussion associated with benefits of a two-speed supercharger because of this application, to provide more linear energy shipments. Cameron furthermore stated Kawasaki patent files advised the system would rely on evaporative air conditioning making use of port gas injections, as opposed to a bulky intercooler.
Kawasaki reported the 2013 design is 1st supercharger created by a motorcycle producer. In 2013, journalists said your motor could force the “next generation ZX-14R” sportbike. Reporters additionally mentioned that Kawasaki currently has a production inline-4 supercharged engine powering the Jet skiing Ultra 300X personal liquids art.
At 2014 Intermot bike trade program on September 30, 2014, Kawasaki announced that a race-only Ninja H2R design would-be stated in inclusion to your street-legal, lower power, Ninja H2 which may be completely revealed at the EICMA trade tv show in November. The cycle is shown for the first time in North America within AIMExpo show at Orlando, Florida in October, 2014.
Kawasaki made people some facts about the Kawasaki H2’s engine at Intermot. It absolutely was confirmed to-be a 998 cc inline-four engine with a supercharger, producing 300 horsepower in the H2R racetrack-only variation, nevertheless undoubtedly the highest rated motor ever before for factory production motorcycle, 50per cent above their closest rival, the BMW S1000RR. For comparison this really is 4.5 period the effectiveness of the Continental A-65 system within the Piper J-3 Cub plane.
Global press protection both pre and post Intermot was extensive.
Before the full unveil regarding the H2R, reactions had a tendency to stress the reintroduction of pushed induction toward bike marketplace, with headlines like “Hail the newest Supercharged Era”, “Supercharged Ninja imminent”), “unique Kawasaki recreations bicycle uses a 1000cc supercharged engine”),2014 “Kawasaki officially uncovers Ninja H2 supercharger”), “Kawasaki Ninja H2: How the supercharger works”), and “Kawasaki’s H2 superbike: A technical view KawasakiÃ¢Â€Â™s future supercharged superbike”).
Following the introduction, before any test rides had also become permitted, protection turned to the cycle’s uncommon styling and its particular precedent setting power.
