Kawasaki has just launched its quickest street-legal motorcycle in India, the Ninja H2 at Rs 29 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The launch took place at Delhi’s own international race track, the Buddh International Circuit.
The Ninja H2 is in a league of its own, with ingenious technology and jaw-dropping looks that command attention, with futuristic styling. The Ninja H2’s advanced engine is built by Kawasaki and their aerospace department, part of Kawasaki Heavy Industries. H2 is equipped with a supercharged engine, a 998cc in-line 4 cylinder unit, with identical bore and stroke (76.0 x 55.0) as the Ninja ZX-10R, in a very different state of tune. Due to the addition of a supercharger, the H2 produces 197.3bhp at 11,000rpm. Also, 13.6kgm of peak torque is produced at 10,500rpm.
The Ninja H2 also has large 330mm disc brakes up front and a 250mm rear disc brake with a non-switchable ABS braking system in place.
At the launch event itself Kawasaki mentions new interesting developments to happen soon. Firstly, it will launch two new models in India this year. They also mention that a maximum of four new showrooms will be inaugurated in India this year. Kawasaki original apparel will be soon sold in India. Kawasaki has also confirmed the Z800 will be sold permanently at the ‘introductory’ rate earlier announced.
The Ninja H2 is available in a black paint scheme that is mirror coated.
