Anyone know if those have begun?
It's strange because Kawasaki didn't want this strategy in France, hopefully. Like that we have the true version in 2016Post from Japan,
H2 is not delivery directory from Kawasaki reason from fullpower version is restricted by internal self-imposed control by automotive companies thus H2 will be delivered by subsidiary of Kawasaki as re-imported model.
Vehicles will be export for example Thailand once and re-imported.
For example Honda is released 1000rr as domestic model officially but max power is restricted to 123ps.
Yea KZ, where did you go, whats the H2 scene like in Japan?I easy understood some guy feel strange Japanese market, but there was long history.
Bosozoku was the political problem long ago then
The Japanese manufacturers voluntary make some restriction and have an UNRITTEN agreement with the Japanese government not to sell any motorcycles with over 750cc in Japan with 77ps restriction.
Therefore, some importer re-import for the demanded customer and we need to pay a lot, in case of import model NO limitation on motor size and max power in resistration.
In Kawasaki, 72 Z1 900 is the good example, so called Z2 750 is only available in Japan direct delivery from Kawasaki and oter example in automotive is NISSAN GTR is equiped 180kph and 280ps remitter in Japan market.
We also ununderstandable and feel strenge.
App. 5-6years ago restriction was gone on motor size by the discussion Japanese manufacturers and Japanese government reason from less compatition with HD and others, but regarding max power strong restriction is valid.
You will able to find some discription with "Japan motorcycle restricted 750" in the internet.
because it forces people into the aftermarket, spurring them forward...business development > the aftermarket lobby is a menace!!
