MCN will be running that cover when their latest edition hits mail boxes tomorrow. Of course its 'just' a render, but there are important questions that it does bring up.
First, liveries. The White and Candy Green combo seen on the MCN cover clearly apes the new 30th anniversary schemes Kawasaki is currently offering on the ZX-10R and ZX-6R. Now theres no question that the H2 is the cherry on top of the Ninja's birthday celebrations, but will Kawasaki offer H2 in the special edition livery? Aside from the ZX-14 the entire ZX line is only offered in black finish, which would jive with the black mirror chrome bike we saw at Intermot. White and Candy Green and/or Mirror Black finish, plausible?
Second, the lights. Notice the three small LED's inserted into the air intakes. Again, we don't know if any of this has a scrap of legitimacy but it is difficult to imagine where exactly Kawasaki is going to put the headlamps if not there.
Third, the fairing. Without the winglets offering increased cooling/airflow the render seems to offer a redesigned fairing geared towards street use.
Lastly, 200 bhp and 20K. This I think is bunk, the S1000RR comes in at a fraction of the price with a similar power figure. So either Kawasaki will come down a bit on pricing or go up a bit on H2. I'm betting on HP, they're not about to make all this fuss about the H2 and then allow it to be out gunned in house by the ZX-14R...
