Take A Closer Look At The Kawasaki H2 Carbon!

With only 120 units going on sale, feast your eyes on the Kawasaki H2 Carbon while you still can. They’re going to sell out quickly, and although no formal prices have been announced, let’s all just accept that we can’t afford one, and move on… Unveiled by WSBK Kawasaki rider Tom Sykes a couple of days ago, the H2 Carbon has already been wowing spectators and industry pros alike. Mr Sykes has already announced his intention to buy one, so scratch that 120 units down to 119 left for sale…

Here’s what Kawasaki had to say about their latest supercharged machine: “Limited to just 120 available worldwide in 2017, the Carbon model of the Ninja H2, as its name suggests, features a Carbon Fiber upper cowling as well as other features that mark it out as special – even in this illustrious company.

Resplendent in a new paint scheme that is just as eye catching yet different to the two existing Ninja models, the Ninja H2 Carbon also has a new take on the famous Kawasaki “river mark” emblem on the front of the cowling as well as the adoption of an IMU offering six levels of machine attitude measurement.

Using the IMU at its core the range of electronic rider aids is impressive with Kawasaki’s cornering management function as part of a suite that also includes traction control, launch control, intelligent anti-lock brakes and even a bank angle readout as part of the meter display.

Equipped with its stunning trellis style frame, handling and braking are dealt with by top quality components on the Ninja H2 Carbon with KYB AOS-2 front forks plus Brembo M50 calipers and braking package while, at the rear, a top spec Ohlins TTX shock absorber with remote adjustment ensures perfect handling.”

It’s bank angle instrumentation that really tickles us though. With real time assessments displayed on your dash, we can’t help but wonder whether this tech is going to improve track day lap times, or cause more accidents in the process?
