Kawasaki claims the 2015 Ninja H2 “will undoubtedly change the motorcycle landscape forever”, do you think the H2 will be that significant in the motorcycle industry?

I think it will be successful, but somehow I think there is a bit of hyperbole going on here. The supercharge thing will be new, but other than that I don't think its going to be quite as revolutionary as Kawasaki would like us to believe.

Supercharging isn't that new, it was around during the 80's and died out, they're just one of many brands to bring it out again.

of course this will rattle things up in the motorcycle industry. its been just over 30 years when turbos and superchargers had anything to do with motorcycles. with todays technology kawi shouldn't have a problem planting this one in. others might just have to follow.just prey guys that the insurance companies dont go ballistic on this thing.

Are there other brands who are also using a supercharged engine for their flagship? Are they going to have to do it so that Kawasaki isn't the only one doing it?

I read on this forum that Honda is another brand that will get into this.

There is no other brand that has EVER sold a Supercharged motorcycle, so YES for a fact the introduction of the H2 will shakeup the industry. It was previously thought to be impossible, Forced Induction bikes (aftermarket and the factory turboes) are tricky off corners, and a super was never considered because the torque curve would of been treacherous. Not to mention the heat and packaging issues...

Don't get it twisted this is a BIG deal...
