The Kawasaki® Difference
 Built Beyond Belief:  
    Experience unforgettable supercharged street performance and World Superbike racing inspired next-level electronics with the Kawasaki Ninja H2™ motorcycle. The world's only supercharged production hypersport streetbike features numerous innovations and industry-firsts from across Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd (KHI), complemented by only the highest quality components. The result is an awe-inspiring work of mechanical art, Built Beyond Belief.  
Supercharged Power
 Immense Power:  
    The Ninja H2 streekbike's supercharged engine creates unprecedented power for remarkable acceleration. The heavy growl of the boosted liter-class engine is a sound the streets won't soon forget.  
 In-house-designed Supercharger:  
    Chosen for its high-rpm performance, the centrifugal-type supercharger is incredibly efficient at compressing air (at up to 2.4x atmospheric pressure) while minimizing heat  
    As a result of the supercharger’s efficiency, no large, heavy intercooler was required to cool the compressed air  
    The supercharger was designed to match the new engine, allowing high-efficiency operation over a wider range of conditions than could be provided by any other typical supercharger  
 Supercharger Impeller:  
    The complex shape of the impeller is 3D machined from forged aluminum for high precision and durability  
    The impeller spins at 9.2x speed of the crankshaft, reaching speeds of nearly 130,000 rpm, pumping a capacity of over 200 liters of air per second into the engine  
 The Planetary Gear:  
    Designed using technology from KHI’s Aerospace Company, the planetary gear is incredibly compact and efficient at transferring power  
    The planetary gear runs off power from the crankshaft, driving the impeller (via a “step-up” gear) to incredibly high rpm  
 998 cc Inline Four-cylinder Engine:  
    The engine was painstakingly crafted to accommodate the extreme air pressure created by a supercharger  
    Cast (rather than forged) through a unique process, the pistons of the Ninja H2 are lightweight - yet strong - and able to withstand extremely high temperatures  
    The precision-honed combustion chamber is complemented by a flat piston crown inspired by technology from KHI’s Gas Turbine & Machinery Company that helps prevent detonation  
    Assist and slipper clutch offers light clutch pull and minimizes rear wheel chatter caused by aggressive downshifting  
 Premium Performance:  
    The massive power of the supercharged engine necessitates a multitude of high-performance components to ensure an unforgettably effortless, yet forceful experience.  
 MotoGP™-style Dog-ring Transmission:  
    Commonly found in high-performance racing machines, the dog-ring transmission allows for effortless, short shifts  
    Rather than shifting gears into place, the gears in this configuration stay in place, with the lightweight dog-rings moving to engage the gears  
    A high-quality hydraulic clutch features Brembo® components for smooth actuation and top performance  
 Fully Adjustable High-performance Racing Suspension:  
    New Öhlins® TTX36 rear shock offers precise damping for enhanced traction, comfort and feedback to the rider  
    New Öhlins TTX36 rear shock features a remote shock preload adjuster making it easy to adjust settings without tools to suit rider preference  
    The KYB® AOS-II (Air-Oil-Separate) low friction cartridge fork offers superb action; initial stroke is smooth and compliant followed by a progressive damping through the end of the stroke  
    The front fork is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping, as well as preload  
 Brembo Brakes:  
    New Brembo clutch lever and front brake lever are designed to prevent wind force from engaging the levers while at higher speed  
    Top-shelf Brembo brake components tuned specifically for powerful and progressive braking response  
    In the front, two massive 330 mm Brembo semi-floating discs are gripped by dual radial-mounted Brembo monobloc calipers for superb braking force  
    In the rear, a 250 mm disc provides a strong braking performance  
 Wheels and Tires:  
    The lightweight cast aluminum wheels were designed specifically for the Ninja H2, and were created using analysis from Kawasaki’s World Superbike team  
    The star-pattern 5-spoke wheels offer optimal rigidity for high-power performance  
    The Ninja H2 comes equipped with a massive 200 mm rear tire that transmits power to the ground  
Advanced Electronics
 Key enhancements bring Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) World SBK championship-proven electronics management technology to the Ninja H2. This results in precise chassis orientation awareness that assists rider's ability to adapt to a wide range of typical street riding conditions and scenarios.  
 New Bosch® IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit):  
    Compact IMU enables inertia along 6 Degrees of Freedom to be monitored. Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse and vertical axes, plus roll rate and pitched are measured. The yaw rate is calculated by the ECU using Kawasaki's proprietary dynamic modeling software.  
    This next-level system enables predictive and adaptive electronics for precise chassis orientation awareness  
 New Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC):  
    Whereas many competitive traction control systems react to wheel-slip, this IMU-enhanced feedback version of KTRC predicts conditions and acts before slippage exceeds the range for optimal traction  
    When turned on, riders can choose from nine modes, allowing riders to choose the degree in which each mode intervenes during riding. Riders may also elect to turn the system off.  
    Modes 1 through 3 are optimized for track conditions, modes 4 through 6 for the street, and modes 7 through 9 for wet pavement conditions. A rain mode is also available.   
 Kawasaki Launch Control Mode (KLCM):  
    3-mode KLCM provides unmatchable acceleration from a stop by electronically controlling engine output to minimize rear wheel-slip and front end lift  
    Launch Control Mode allows the rider to launch from a stop with the throttle held wide open  
 Öhlins Electronic Steering Damper:  
    The Öhlins electronic steering damper adjusts damping based on a number of inputs  
    At lower speeds, damping is lessened. As speed increases, steering damping increases for optimal performance.  
 New Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS):  
    New for 2017, the KQS now enables clutchless downshifts for quick and smooth deceleration  
    Complementing the engine's strong power and the dog-ring transmission, a contactless-type shifter enables quick upshifts for seamless acceleration  
 Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-lock Brake System (KIBS):  
    New IMU-enabled Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) is a supersport-grade high-precision multi-sensing ABS brake assistance system  
    Uses high-precision control to modulate brake pressure during sport riding  
 Kawasaki Engine Brake Control:  
    This system allows riders to set engine braking according to preference  
    When the system is activated, the engine braking effect is reduced, providing less interference when riding on the circuit  
 Stunning Aerodynamic Styling:  
    The Ninja H2 motorcycle design projects intense force becoming a product of functional beauty. Each and every angle is designed to contribute unprecedented performance and style.  
 Aerodynamic Devices:  
    Designed by KHI's Aerospace Company, the mirror stays feature airfoil cross-sections with Gurney flaps that contribute to downforce generation  
    A chin spoiler on the upper cowl is also function disguised in form, further contributing to downforce generation   
 Trellis Frame:  
    The trellis frame provides the strength to harness the incredible power of the supercharged engine and the balanced flex to achieve optimal rigidity and pliability for aggressive sport riding.  
 Mirror Coated Spark Black Paint:  
    Developed by KHI, the Mirror Coated Spark Black paint of the fuel tank, fairing, and seat cowl is the first-ever on a mass-production automobile or motorcycle   
    The multi-layer composite paint includes a layer of pure Silver formed by a chemical reaction, creating the mirrored effect  
    In the shade, the dark base coat shows through the Silver for a deep, 3D appearance. In the sun, the Silver creates a brilliant metallic effect.  
 High-quality River Mark Emblem:  
    Reserved only for models of historical significance, the iconic Kawasaki River Mark is featured prominently on the front cowl  
    The River Mark dates back to the earliest days of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., and has been used on select motorcycle models since the 1960s  
 New High-tech Instrumentation:  
    New bank angle display and maximum bank angle-recording function  
    Multi-function Meter Digital LCD screen with Black / White reverse display and analog-style tachometer  
    Display functions include: digital speedometer, gear position indicator, odometer, dual trip meters, current mileage, average mileage, fuel consumption, coolant temperature, boost indicator, boost (intake air chamber) temperature, stopwatch (lap timer), clock and the Economical Riding Indicator  
    Tachometer design uses an actual needle enhanced by backlit rpm numbers that illuminate to chase the tachometer needle as it moves around the dial  
 LED Illumination:  
    Bright, compact LED headlamps are positioned low to evoke the images of a predator's fangs  
    Elegant LED taillight / brake light is flanked by surface-emitting LED position lamps  
    LED rear turn signals featuring an inner lens, surface texturing and surface-emitting LEDs contribute to the bike's high-tech image
