2019 h2

Well according to MCN (Motorcycle news UK) or as most of us call it, more crap news, the 2019 H2 is only making 206 bhp @11500 revs

True or false

Tell you next Thursday certainly not faster than my 16 but the throttle and power delivery is massively improved.

My guess is they did nothing with the 2019 but stopped understating the power.
The 209hp claimed from 2017 is around what it makes on the rear wheel stock. The 230hp claimed on the 2019 seems to be closer to its engine hp.

I want that!
I wonder if it's possible to get similar results by taking the 2019 parameters and insert into the 2017 table.

Without reading to much into it, if, claimed revs where 11500, then it is still restricted and quoted "sales" performance figures are probably at the crank


With the new BMW (apparently) hitting 200+ at the wheel on a normally aspirated bike, you would have thought Kwak would have gone fook it, have some of this ????

Iím not clever enough to answer that question!
All I know is itís a different ECU to the 2016 and has different spark plugs, airbox & air filter. Unsure how much of that adds/contributes to the throttle feel or if itís the fuel/throttle maps but I was genuinely surprised.
Itís still not perfect but much improved although I believe the 2017ís & 2018ís were also better than my 16

Iím going down to BSD with a mate whoís having is ZX10RR flashed, Iíve got a session on the dyno booked to take a look. They can extract the ECU and flash with Woolich now itís available for the 2019 in around 3 hours so I might get the restrictions taken off but not chasing power again Rob, Iím concerned Iíll ruin the good work Kawasaki have done!

I agree Rob, i think theyíre all doing under 210 out of the box, itís certainly improved & seems to have more drive at the lower end but no more up top.
They could have pulled the pin and let it loose but itís still heavily restricted, probably in part because of Euro 4/5 emissions.
I think it makes the power much earlier than the BMW, more grunt but the naturally aspirated bikes are catching up fast.
For me the throttle, power delivery and TFT display are the biggest bonus to date.
