Kawasaki Ninja H2 redefines maniac-ism. A supercharged litre class engine capable of taking you to the brinks of sanity. A bike which sits at the pinnacle of motorcycle technology and has an elder brother which can take on any bully which tries to make fun of it. Yes, the H2 is all that and more.
Kawasaki has bettered the motorcycle at the Tokyo Motor Show and the 2016 model of H2 carries more features.
2016 Kawasaki H2 Features
The 2016 H2 gets…
- Support for aftermarket data logger
- Assist & Slipper Clutch
- Upgraded ECU
- New Color
Support for the aftermarket data logger is through a CAN coupler provided inside the canopy.
The most important addition in the H2 though is the introduction of assist and slipper clutch. While the assist cam helps in making the clutch level easier to pull, the slipper cam helps in rear wheel lock-up while downshifting from a higher gear. The company claims that this has helped the clutch level to feel lighter by 40 per cent, leading to reduced rider fatigue. The clutch hub material has also been changed to aluminium from steel which has helped reduce the weight by 1 kilo!
The ECU too has been upgraded. The tweaks, as per the company, help in providing more natural power delivery in Rain mode. The paint scheme too gets glass flakes in the first coat helping the bike get a metallic styled finish.
The H2R gains just the CAN coupler and new paint scheme.
Oh wait, that’s not all. Kawasaki took things to an even higher level with a reference model of the H2 in a special mirror coated paint scheme of Deep Pink Gold! Yes imagine rocketing at 250 kph on a pink motorcycle…
