Kawasaki Ninja H2R is a concept super sports bike developed under the umbrella of Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI). The various group companies included are Gas Turbine and Machinery Company, Aerospace Company and Corporate Technology Division. The H2R is their labour of love and what a beast it is.
The bike boasts of a very aggressive “Intense Force” design having minimum drag also capable of providing stability at ultra-high speeds. The displayed bike has been developed specifically for the closed circuit (track) as is evident with the absence of headlights, turn indicators or mirrors. Kawasaki says that the H2R has been made to “offer the kind of acceleration no rider has experienced before”. Tall claim; but knowing the power that this bike has, the statement seems aptly suited. The engine is an inline-four with a supercharger bolted on. This equates to a power output of an insane, maniacal, suicidal and deranged 300bhp!
Exact figures have not yet been disclosed but it is easily the most powerful bike ever produced, going by the stats already revealed. Top speed should easily be above the 200mph (322kmph) mark. A new trellis frame has been developed to keep the motorcycle on track even at high speed. The short wheelbase has been chosen to give the bike flexibility around corners.
With the help of Kawasaki Aerospace Company the bike has been given an extremely sculpted look with maximum aerodynamic efficiency. The design helps in better cooling of the engine with the Ram air duct positioned optimally to feed the supercharger vast amounts of fresh air. The bike looks radical too, with the classic green Ninja paint and a mirrored finish for the black chrome paint.
A production version called the ‘H2’ will be coming later this year.
