The latest Kawasaki Ninja H2R from 2023 keeps the same design. On either side of the fairing, aerodynamic winglets have been added.
Since mirrors are not necessary for the track-spec bike, extra winglets have been fitted in their place.
The bike lacks a headlight and turn indicators because it was designed for racing. The bike offers a unique mirror finish paint job and slick tires designed for the circuit.
The new Kawasaki Ninja H2R is powered by a 998cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine.
The engine can generate a maximum of 310 HP and 165 Nm of torque at 14000 and 12500 rpm, respectively.
With a RAM Air intake, the output may be raised to 326 HP @ 14000 rpm.
Standard features include a fast shifter, a slipper and assist clutch, and a slipper clutch to match the powerful engine.
The frame of the Ninja H2R is sturdy enough to handle the engine’s power while remaining adaptable enough to produce handling similar to that of a racecar.
Each component of the Ninja H2R is made of steel tubing that is varied in thickness and is thoroughly built for strength and flexibility before connecting to form the Trellis-style structure.
At the more nimble end of the spectrum, the steering head creates a 25.1-degree rake angle with 4.3 inches of trail.
To keep you in the ideal position, it also incorporates a dynamic Ohlins steering damper that lowers kickback and automatically changes itself depending on the speed.
One of the fastest motorcycles in its class is the Kawasaki Ninja H2R. Faster than most cars, the bike’s supercharged motor can reach 60 mph from 0 in just 2.5 seconds.
With a claimed top speed of 250 mph, the bike’s top speed is extremely astounding.
The H2R’s brakes are likewise fantastic, featuring Brembo calipers and sizable discs for strong stopping power.
The H2R’s sophisticated suspension system contributes to its remarkable handling.
A completely adjustable Ohlins suspension system on the bike offers exceptional stability and handling, even at high speeds.
The single-sided swingarm of the bike enhances handling and reduces maintenance.
The Kawasaki Ninja H2R model is painted in a unique way that sets it apart from other models.
Normally, Kawasaki uses robots to paint their bikes, like many other mass-production manufacturers.
However, for the H2R, they decided to have their in-house paint specialists do it by hand.
The paint on the Ninja H2R is truly special. It has a base layer of pure silver, which gives the bike its distinctive appearance.
However, that is not all – the paint is also self-healing! If there are any minor scratches on the paintwork, they will gradually disappear as the paint spreads and fills in the scratches.
Despite promises of 310 to 326 metric horsepower more at the crank, the Kawasaki H2R normally generates between 230 and 240 horsepower at the wheels using a Dynojet Dynamometer.
There is no denying the H2R makes a lot less power than Kawasaki claims, even if it would likely produce an additional 10 horsepower at the wheels once it was moving.
The Kawasaki H2R doesn’t produce as much power at the rear wheels as we might assume, despite its boasts of crank horsepower.
The new Kawasaki Ninja H2R has an approximate fuel efficiency of 10–12 kilometers per liter.
The 1000cc hyperbike can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in about 3.07 seconds.
The Kawasaki Ninja H2R’s maximum speed is 400 km/h, according to measurements obtained on a closed road.
Ninja H2R Suspension, Brakes, and Tires:
The Kawasaki Ninja H2R’s supercharged high-performance engine has the necessary components for 2023.
Ohlins TTX36 gas-charged mono-shock serves as the rear shock, while 43mm USD forks serve as the front forks. Each suspension component can be modified.
Additionally, an Ohlins electronic steering damper supports the front forks.
Twin 330mm discs and Brembo M50 Monobloc calipers make up the front brakes. A single 250mm disc and a two-piston Brembo caliper are installed at the back.
The H2R feels like a completely different bike from its H2 road-bike sibling. It is quite lighter than the H2 bike, which makes it hold its line much better.
Despite the lighter weight and firmer settings on the H2, the suspension on the H2R is the same as the suspension on the H2.
It makes you feel like a GP rider; the noise, the speed, the power. It’s insane and sublime in equal measure.
The suspension on both the H2 and R models is almost the same, but it has to handle a lighter weight and the stiffer settings are more suited for the track.
Riding the bike will give you the feeling of being a professional racer, with incredible noise, speed, and power.
Parts Availability and Maintenance:
The Kawasaki has recommended 95-Octane fuel for this bike, which is a normal one; hence, you do not need ethanol for this bike.
The air filter of the bike must be cleaned by opening the nose of the bike, removing the element, cleaning it, and reinstalling it.
Additionally, if you need to replace any part, you can use the oil filter of Kawasaki H2, or get it from the agency.
The H2R comes with several control systems to stop it from firing you at the tracks, following are the control systems that come with the bike.
KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control):
The new KTRC multiple modes offer riders a greater number of settings to choose from.
Mode One is for the track, Mode Two is for the street, and Mode Three is for the wet conditions.
Moreover, a Rain Mode is also available, which controls power by more than 50%.
KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode):
There is no need to worry about the supercharger for fast getaways, as the H2’s launch control will prevent wheel spin and minimize wheelies off the line.
There are three modes accessible to motorists, each with a different level of intrusion.
KEBC (Kawasaki Engine Brake Control):
With the KEBC technology, riders may choose the amount of engine braking they require.
By selecting ‘LIGHT’ in the KEBC settings, for example, the engine braking effect will be reduced, providing less interference during the riding on the circuit.
The Kawasaki Ninja H2R is a futuristic motorcycle designed specifically for racing on the track. It is extremely expensive. In Pakistan, the price of the Ninja H2R is around PKR 12-13 million.
Let’s make one thing clear, due to its high cost, limited production, and lack of certain features that we usually expect, this bike is only suitable for use on the track as a toy. You cannot ride it on the local Pakistani roads as you do on Honda CD 70 or 125 bikes.
Kawasaki never intended for this model to be used for anything other than racing.
If you are looking for a motorcycle that can be used in everyday life, it is better to buy the H2 instead. Using the H2R for regular purposes is not only a waste, but it is also illegal.
