Kawasaki Ninja H2R is a dream machine of every true motorcycle enthusiast of India. The powerful motorcycle has numerous exclusive features and above all, a technology that puts 1.5 times the power into a similar package when compared to regular sporty options available in the country. The output values can leave any potential product, even a track-focused race car, in confusion to accept the challenge. Here are 15 important points that one should know about the motorcycle.

Kawasaki Ninja H2R

15 Must-Know Facts

1) World’s Fastest Production Bike – Ninja H2R touched the 400 kph top speed when World Supersport champion Kenan Sofuoglu took it for a ride on the Osman Gazi bridge near Istanbul. The feat was achieved in just 26 seconds on the closed bridge. The rider normally experiences 300kph of speeds on average during the Supersport races and this was a new experience for him too. The record was made during low wind conditions.

2) Self-Healing Paint – The original silver mirror paint finish helps the motorcycle stay young among other supersport machines of the world. The highly durable paint automatically heals the scratches as hard and soft segments of the paintwork together to create a smooth layer all the time. The paint only heals scratches from the soft sources.

3) Bank Angle Display – Kawasaki Ninja H2R comes with a bank angle display that records the maximum angle achieved and shows the same whenever required. The inertial measurement unit on the motorcycle is very effective and helps the H2R bring such impressive features.

4) Not Road Legal – The motorcycle is only for track use or in special cases, roads that have been legally closed for an event. The lack of mandatory parts like the headlight, taillight, and mirrors make H2R a limited-use product. In other words, you won’t get a number plate for your motorcycle.

5) Supercharged Engine – Kawasaki brings the 998cc, supercharged engine into the motorcycling world, producing 310HP in normal and 326HP in the RAM air-assist mode. The power is achieved @ 14,000 rpm while 165Nm of peak torque is available @12,500 rpm. Ninja H2R loves being revved and taking the range into 5-digit number brings exclusive performance.

6) Carbon Fiber Wings – Ninja H2R comes with carbon-fibre wings for improved downforce and those are placed at the same location as the rearview mirrors on regular bikes. The setup is lightweight and very effective when considering speeds of over 300kph.

7) Bridgestone Battlax V01 Tires – Kawasaki offers the most impressive rubber combination on the H2R, that too with a unique way of listing the size. The race-spec tires can’t be changed at will as every electronic feature is configured according to their dimensions and capability.

8) Single-sided Swingarm – The premium single-sided swingarm saves some weight and looks very impressive when seen from any of the sides. As the disc brake and swingarm stays on the left side of the rider, the right looks very sporty with just the visible alloy design and titanium exhaust system of the H2R.

9) Brembo Brakes – The 330mm, dual Brembo semi-floating brakes with 5.5mm of thickness help keeping the unsprung weight low and takes the stopping power to a new level. The rear comes with 250mm rear disc brake with 2-piston unit while the front features M50 4-piston setup.

10) Ohlins Suspension – Ninja H2R comes with Ohlins TTX36 gas-charged shock with 135mm of travel. Not just that, the precise steering damper is also made in collaboration with Ohlins. The front suspension is a 43mm USD unit with 120mm of travel.

11) Informative Console – Kawasaki Ninja H2R comes with an informative console with an analogue tachometer and TFT display for rest of the values. The screen features a gear indicator, speedometer and trip meter with the highest amount of readability.

12) Availability & Price in India – Ninja H2R is available in India for INR 75.80 lakh and attracts just 1% TCS over the same for the total value. The charges related to RTO documentation are not applicable on the H2R. The total one time cost adds up to INR 76.56 lakh for the motorcycle.

13) India vs US Price – The huge INR 75.80 lakh price tag is due to the huge amount of taxes applicable to the import. On the other hand, the Ninja H2R costs just $55,000 (INR 41.60 lakh approx) in the US market. The price is almost double in India and thus, the number of units sold is directly affected by the difference.

14) Service Interval – The Ninja H2R requires regular checkups at every 15 hours of operation. The console calculates the time automatically and not just that, only the number of minutes above 8000 rpm is calculated by the system.

15) No Warranty – Even after spending INR 76.56 lakh on the motorcycle, the buyer is offered no warranty on any of the components by Kawasaki. Even the engine and basic parts are out of warranty on the H2R. Every service falls under the paid segment for the motorcycle.

For all the sports bike enthusiasts, a Kawasaki dealership in Japan by the name Pleasure MC based in Nisshin, Aichi Prefecture has recently modified a Kawasaki Z125 Pro monkey bike into a Kawasaki Ninja H2 fully-faired super sports machine. The end product of the customization is something worth appreciating and the dealership is calling it as the “h2”, with a lowercase ‘h’.

Coming to the baby Ninja h2, the dealership has specifically churned out the customization to offer the world a more affordable version of the Kawasaki Ninja H2, which is indeed one of the most powerful road-legal motorcycles across the countries with an equally “hole in the pocket” kind of price tag.

The customized Kawasaki Z125 Pro has been equipped with a one-of-a-kind body kit that has been designed with more than 40 fibreglass panels that are custom made with utmost perfection. The stock motorcycle has been equipped with almost identical body fairing on the super sports Ninja H2 in addition to the similar winglets design.

The customizers have further offered the stock machine with a similar rear profile as well as the rear seat cowl when compared to the inspiration. The customized unit further features a similar turbocharger seen on the Ninja H2 though this one has just been imparted as a dummy to mimic the perfect design. The customized Kawasaki Ninja Z125 “h2” has also been equipped with a similar dual-outlet exhaust unit to add to the authenticity further.

Apart from the cosmetic changes, the stock motorcycle has been kept mechanically unaltered. Powering the customized Kawasaki Ninja Z125 “h2” is the same 125cc single-cylinder engine that is good for 9 HP and 9.6 Nm. The dealership is charging a price tag of JPY 12,50,000 (INR 8.90 lakh) for the end product.

The 2020 Suzuki GSX-R1000R superbike has been recently offered a new GSX-RR MotoGP livery. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with a blue and silver 60th anniversary MotoGP detailing which adds a nice and sporty touch to the Supersports motorcycle variant.

The front fairing has been offered a Suzuki Ecstar branding finished in blue and black while the blue fuel tank design has been offered the Suzuki moniker finished in red.

Apart from the addition of the GSX-RR MotoGP livery, the motorcycle remains technically and cosmetically unaltered. The front end of the Supersports machine continues to feature a compact LED headlight mated to LED DRLs as well as the LED blinkers. The LED setup is further carried towards the rear of the motorcycle while the overall muscular profile has also been kept the same.

To jog your memory, powering the Suzuki GSX-R1000R is a 999.8cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 185HP and a peak torque of 117Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The suspension duties on the Supersports machine are handled by inverted telescopic forks at the front while the rear has been mated to a monoshock unit.

The motorcycle gets twin disc brakes at the front with Brembo twin-piston callipers and a single disc at the rear mated to a dual-channel ABS unit as standard. In addition to offering the Suzuki GSX-R1000R with GSX-RR MotoGP livery, the brand has offered the same to GSX-R125 and GSX-R150. The brand is yet to offer the all-new MotoGP livery to the India-spec Suzuki Gixxer SF 150 and the Gixxer SF 250.

The overall glossy red colour scheme offered to the motorcycle imparts it a unique look that is different from the other colour variants. The brand has equipped the Suzuki Katana sportbike with red-coloured alloy wheels. In addition to this, the golden accents offered to the USD forks at the front as well as the handlebar unit adds to the interesting contrast.

Further making the Red Suzuki Katana stand out from the rest, the brand has offered the motorcycle with red stitching on the single-piece saddle that compliments the dual-tone profile further.

Apart from the addition of a red colour scheme, the motorcycle remains cosmetically and mechanically unaltered. Powering the Red Suzuki Katana is the same 999cc, liquid-cooled, 4-cylinder engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 150HP @ 10,000 rpm and a peak torque of 108Nm @ 9,500 rpm. The engine remains mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The sports machine from the brand has been equipped with LED headlight at the front mated to LED DRLs. The brand has offered the motorcycle with a semi-fairing which further features bold body accents. The motorcycle gets a fully-digital instrument console while the sportier stance is enhanced by clip-on handlebar unit and a flowing rear end.

The brand is yet to announce the price tag of the Red Suzuki Katana while the other two colour variants of the motorcycle are available in the Japanese markets at JPY 1,400,000 (INR 9.89 lakh). The brand has recently revealed the resurrected variant of the Suzuki Katana for the Indian markets back at the Auto Expo in February 2020 while one can expect more details on the motorcycle to follow soon.

After recently launching the Honda CT125 Hunter Cub, the brand has revealed the CB-F concept bike at the ‘Honda Virtual Motorcycle Show’. Based on the CB900F, the brand was expected to showcase the CB-F concept at the 36th Osaka Motorcycle Show as well as the 47th Tokyo Motorcycle Show though the ongoing coronavirus pandemic scare has made the authorities to take help of their digital platforms to unveil the motorcycle.

Taking styling cues from the CB900F, the Honda CB-F concept has been equipped with a boxy design language though it looks sharper at the edges. The concept motorcycle measures 2,120mm in length, 790mm in width and 1,070mm in height. The rear edge of the motorcycle concept has been imparted a sleeker outlook while the overall retro profile adds to its exclusivity.

The brand has further equipped the concept motorcycle with a round headlight in addition to offering the retro Honda logo on the fuel tank. Commenting on the unveiling of the Honda CB-F concept, Honda officials stated: “the CB-F concept is the result of revisiting the CB series’ history, which reached its sixth-decade last year, and thoroughly exploring what to preserve, and what to evolve with the company’s flagship sports bike.”

Coming to the mechanical bits, powering the CB-F concept bike is a 998cc, water-cooled, 4-stroke, 4-valve, in-line, 4-cylinder DOHC engine that has been borrowed from the Honda CB1000R. The brand has not yet revealed the power and torque values of the upcoming machine though the similar engine on the CB1000R is capable of churning out a maximum power of 143HP and a peak torque of 104Nm. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed transmission.

The suspension duties on the Honda CB-F concept are handled by Upside Down (USD) forks at the front and a monoshock absorber at the rear. The old school looks of the motorcycle and a lightweight chassis will be capable of attracting a wider range of audience and at the same time sets it apart from the rather modernistic Honda CB1000R.

The brand will also be revealing more than 20 other products via its ‘Honda Virtual Motorcycle Show” that has been organized after the cancellation of the motor shows due to the pandemic situation.

The Yamaha R15 V3 you see here has taken the extreme route of modification and got itself an R1M-inspired look. However, the changes are totally visual and more importantly, based on a kit that can be mounted or removed. The kit comes with a custom headlight setup with huge bubble visor, redesigned side fairing and a completely new tail section with an in-built backrest.

The rear section of the sportbike also flaunts effective winglets while the front can be seen with a custom fender. The taillight and turn indicators are neatly studded into the new panels. The R15 V3 seen here is an Indonesia-spec model as one can spot the USD front forks and rear aluminium footpeg holders.

Yamaha R15 has served as a base for hundreds of modifications in the past decade and some of the owners have gone to the next level by adding technology to their examples. Here, the primary focus was to achieve R1M styling and that too by not altering any performance-related components of the R15 V3.

The impressive shade looks even better in the low light conditions. The modifier has used precisely-placed stickers to highlight the overall design upgrade. The centre section of the fuel tank is wrapped in black shade for the perfect contrast.

At present, the Yamaha R15 V3 can be had in three different shades in India, that too with 2-channel ABS as a stock feature. The base model of the sportbike is available for INR 1.45 lakh (ex-showroom) while the top-end Darknight Edition is priced at INR 1.47 lakh.

The most powerful motorcycle of its kind, the stock version of R15 V3 can produce 18.6 HP of maximum power and claims 0-100 kph in around 12 seconds. The modified model seen here comes with premium tires while the use of huge panels at both the front and rear end makes the wheelbase feel puny in comparison to the stock model.

Yamaha R15 V2 owners know the feeling of riding a young supersport motorcycle and each one of them must have imagined how a similar genre flagship would look under their possession. Taking the front seat here, a Vietnam-based modifier has converted the second generation Yamaha R15 into a BMW HP4 Race.

The motorcycle featured here feels slightly different as the front and rear wheels have been kept stock to avoid engine overkill. The front fascia is derived from the INR 86.70 lakh BMW HP4 Race, leaving the headlights behind for this aerodynamically efficient fairing and golden USD front forks.

Unlike the BMW HP4 Race, this modified R15 features the much-celebrated pillion seat. However, the high tail design of the R15 V2 has helped the motorcycle look like a proper race bike. The modifier has used decorative faux carbon fibre parts to add more sporty feel into the product.

In fact, the addition of frame sliders on both sides will protect the fragile side panels during a sudden fall. The side fairing of the motorcycle features HP4 and BMW monikers while the seat used here comes with better padding than the stock model of the BMW HP4 Race for more comfort-filled hours on the track.

The exhaust used here is different from the original one on the BMW HP4 Race but this one is also equally impressive in terms of exhaust sound and design improvement. The effect of this Akrapovic unit is unknown as performance values for the motorcycle are not yet available.

Even though the 149cc engine on the R15 V2 is good for 17HP, the level of attention paid while making this motorcycle confirms that eyeballs will roll with its tyres on every road for sure.

The braking also stays stock, leaving this Yamaha-based HP4 Race with a single front and rear disc, that too without any other addition except for the Brembo master cylinder. Here is the complete photo gallery of the Yamaha R15 V2, which has been modified to look like a BMW HP4 Race.

Some motorcycle modifications are bound to blow your mind with the overall result. One such modification of Bajaj Pulsar NS200 into Kawasaki Z1000 by LeeAT Motor from Vietnam has made to our “worth-mentioning” list. The modifiers have offered a quite aggressive look to the motorcycle that matches perfectly with the highly-aggressive Kawasaki Z1000 naked sports machine.

Coming to the front design, the motorcycle gets an edgy headlight plus visor setup inspired from the Z1000 while the custom fuel tank adds to its superior looks. The modifiers have offered the motorcycle with yellow and black detailing on the fuel tank to keep its authentic looks alive. The custom belly pan set up in addition to the wide tyres further offers the modified motorcycle a beast look. Apart from these, the front mudguard of the motorcycle has also been lifted a little bit higher.

In terms of rear profile, the modification of NS200 into Kawasaki Z1000 gets custom body panels at the rear while the stock exhaust has been replaced with a custom exhaust system flowing towards the rear. In addition to this, the tail light has also been offered a sleeker look. The modifiers have also equipped the motorcycle with a custom seat setup with a sharper pillion end.

Apart from the cosmetic changes to the body panels, there aren’t any mechanical changes made to the motorcycle. It continues to be powered by a 199.5cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that is capable of generating maximum power of 23.5HP @ 9500 rpm and a peak torque of 18.3 Nm @ 8000 rpm.

The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front while the rear gets a monoshock absorber. The motorcycle continues to feature disc brake at either end while LeeAT Motor has equipped this modified Pulsar NS200 with a Z1000-inspired all-digital instrument console.

Bajaj Pulsar RS200 shocked everyone with its official entry in March 2015. After the launch of the RS200 in the Indian market, the buyers who were struggling to get their hands on the KTM RC 200, got a great 200cc option that is not just equally impressive but also saves a lot of money.

Now a few years later, Vietnam-based ‘Leeat Moto’ has come forward with a heavily modified Pulsar RS200, which is inspired by the mighty Kawasaki Ninja H2. The motorcycle has been personally customized with aggressive bodywork and a sharper design. Let’s forget the front face for a moment but no one can deny the fact that the side fairing of the bike looks much better than the original RS200.

For those who love the superbike-inspired exhaust sound, this single-cylinder machine features an Akrapovic full-titanium exhaust system. The front fascia is almost identical to the Ninja H2 and thus, the modifier has used a centre-mounted headlight and panel-integrated turn indicators for aggressive styling.

The front visor has also grown into a full-sized unit that now gets better positioning for lesser fatigue due to wind blast. Leeat Moto has used USD telescopic forks for better suspension abilities and at the same time, better clip-on bars have been used to get that perfect track-bike control from the motorcycle.

The modifier has reshaped the entire body and they have equipped the bike with a slim LED taillight. Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is already a decently powerful motorcycle, and after this modification, the lightweight parts must have made it closer in terms of performance to the KTM RC 200.

The 199.5cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled engine on the motorcycle is good for 24.5 HP of maximum power and 18.6 Nm of maximum torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. At present, the stock model of Pulsar RS200 is available for INR 1.41 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), and it comes with a single-channel ABS unit as standard.
