"Kawasaki H2R will be one of the most powerful motorcycles in the world . Perhaps the strongest . Depends if we appearances as Boss Hoss motorcycle category . The Japanese say that the engine has a " target of 300 horsepower ."
After much teasing offered by Kawasaki , we managed to get our hands on the first concrete details on the new Ninja H2 exotic name to be presented in a few tens of hours at Intermot Show in Cologne . So , with a hand luggage bag and one on the keyboard ( tomorrow we will be at Intermot ) , we present the latest details about Ninja H2 .

First, there will be two versions: H2 and H2R . H2 is the street version , and H2R will be conducted only on the track.
The engine has 998 cc four -line architecture and super-charged ( supercharger centrifugal scroll type for maniacs ) . Power : can reach 300 HP ( at least that we understand the " design target 300 ps " ) .

The engine on Ninja Kawasaki H2R was created in collaboration with other companies in the group Kawasaki (Gas Turbine & Machinery Company, Aerospace Company and Corporate Technology Division) and provides potrvit official release , acceleration " unprecedented " .
And this cooperation not only engine out , but the chassis . The trellis type is not only rigid , but also designed to take the pressure at high speed . The Kawaski say they have found the perfect balance between stiffness and flexibility , to not have to lengthen the wheelbase , which would have decreased maneuverability at low speeds .
And to be sure that Ninja H2 (or H2R ) does not take off when you accelerate , Japanese engineers have put some carbon fiber wings to keep it glued to the asphalt when you go faster the wind .
Name Ninja know where it comes from (30 -year history of sport) . As for H2 , is the legacy model 750 H2 Mach IV , which had a 748.2 cc engine .
So far, so I found and these are the only photos. After the official launch at Intermot , we see the rest. Of course, keep you updated with information and photos directly from the Salon ."

The wings coming off the side are pretty crazy. Will this bike also be able to fly? I'm interested to see an explanation of what those wings will do with aerodynamics for the Ninja H2. Something where they use the smoke in the wind tunnel to show you what is going on would be very cool.

I still don't think the wings are for downforce, that just doesn't work on a bike like it does for 4 wheels. I'm betting its to optimize airflow over the fider, ostensiby I would say its pushing air out and over...

Its also possible the lower winglets are designed for cooling. We know the blower is going run hot, its possible they were designed to force air down into the intercooler/across the blower and engine???

Many questions still...

Won't the wings create more drag though? I'm surprised that they need this to keep the bike cool. There are plenty of other bikes out there that are fast too, and they don't need that extra cooling. Is it because of the supercharger?

Not necessarily. There are two sets of wings don't forget. The lower winglets will absolutely suck hot air out because of a Venturi effect, the uppers will ostensibly push air over and around the rider and interact with the rear aero features to sew up the vortices.

The rider himself is the largest source of drag on a motorcycle...


So if you can optimise that flow and reduce the turbulance coming off the riders back and arms its essentially free speed (to a degree)
