Just in from the Gannet Design drawing board is this café racer concept of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 R.

Usefulness of a 296hp supercharged wide-barred retro bike aside…I like it. It's got an essence of BMW's R1200R concept about it, except with added bite.

The designer, Ulfert Janssen - who's also worked as a designer at Renault, Nissan and Infiniti - said: 'The idea was to create a "de-Batman-ised" design, but still keep a lot of attitude.

I really like the dual lights that are to the left of the headlight. The asymmetry is cool. Only thing I might change about this concept is the color of the frame. I might like it in orange instead.

I'm also a fan of those lights on the side, not something i have seen before on other bikes and it's something i'm starting to love on this one.

Orange would look cool but it would also remind me of KTM, which I would rather not.

Looks awesome. With how fast this bike goes, I think that a windscreen is essential. SO that would have to change for me. Will this stay a render or do you think that this will actually get built eventually?

It's cool how the exhaust pipe is really short and placed right under the seat. Haven't seen an exhaust like that before.

Frankly I don't see Kawi making one but it is possible for a one off by some company like RSD. If its really $20k+ why would you take things off or make any changes from the box is it neccessary? You are better off to try that with a honda cb or yami xs for less.

That's what i was thinking when looking at that exhaust but now i'm just concerned if a setup like that might be an issue for a rider as it seems it would be too close to their leg and with all that heat coming out

I was also wondering about the exhaust heat and fumes. I assume they wouldn't have built it like that if it was a huge problem though. Stranger things have happened...

to the exhausts, no worse than say the 1098s where the only thing keeping your balls from the pipes are plastic and a piece of foam...
