Kawasaki Ninja H2 Review 2022 – My Attitude My Bike : Hello friends, if you are thinking of buying a “Bike” and you have no detailed idea about car, I welcome you to this blog. Today I will let you know – “Kawasaki Ninja H2 Review 2022”.

The Ninja H2 motorcycle bring the mind-bending power of Kawasakiâs supercharged hypersport racer to the street. Boasting a powerful 998cc inline four-cylinder engine, state-of-the-art electronics, and the latest Brembo brakes, the Ninja H2 amounts to pure performance on the road.

The engine was painstakingly crafted to accommodate the extreme air pressure created by a supercharger, Cast (rather than forged) through a unique process, the pistons of the Ninja H2 are lightweight – yet strong – and able to withstand extremely high temperatures. The precision-honed combustion chamber is complemented by a flat piston crown inspired by technology from KHI’s Gas Turbine & Machinery Company that helps prevent detonation.

Highlights of Kawasaki Ninja H2

The Japanese bike manufacturer has bumped up the power for the H2 & H2 Carbon from 205PS to 231PS (without ram air). With ram air, the power has gone up from 215PS to an insane 243PS! Peak torque has been increased from 133.5Nm to 141.7Nm too.

Other updates include a smartphone-compatible TFT screen taken from the H2SX, an all-LED lighting system and a self-healing paint. The paint consists of soft and hard compounds that work together like a chemical spring, creating a trampoline effect that absorbs small impacts. The motorcycle also features new Brembo Stylema monobloc callipers holding the dual 330mm discs up front for better braking efficiency. The rear, on the other hand, employs a 250mm disc. The bike rides on 43mm fully adjustable inverted forks up front and an Ohlins TTX36 UniTrak with full adjustability at the rear.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 Review 2022 – My Attitude My Bike

Kawasaki Ninja H2 Review 2022

Kawasaki set the motorcycling world on its collective ear in 2015 when it released the Ninja H2R and its street-legal brother, the H2. Utilizing parent company Kawasaki Heavy Industries’ extensive expertise in turbine technology (KHI’s Aerospace division has decades of experience designing and manufacturing the turbine assemblies found in various Rolls-Royce jet engines used in commercial aircraft) allowed Kawasaki to fit a centrifugal supercharger in the tight confines of a sportbike and boost power to outrageous levels. A stock H2 cranked out almost 190 hp on the CW dyno, with a horsepower and torque curve that no normally aspirated production engine can match. And an H2 with only bolt-on modifications with Kent Kunitsugu riding managed to run 226.9 mph at a top speed meet in Mojave, California.

But just like the H2R, it’s not just all about power with the H2. A steel-tube trellis chassis and single-sided swingarm are tuned for cornering ability as well as straight-line stability, including top-tier KYB fully adjustable AOS II fork and Öhlins TTX shock with remote preload adjuster. Brembo’s latest Stylema four-piston calipers with 330mm discs provide excellent stopping power, and a full electronic rider aids suite employing a five-axis IMU helps the rider harness that performance.

All of the Ninja H2R/H2/H2 Carbon motorcycles are built to order, requiring deposits within a limited ordering period. Each bike is hand assembled by specialized personnel at the factory.

Underneath that beauty is the beast of a supercharger, revving to 100,000rpm and forcing air into the engine in such vast gulps that twisting the throttle even slightly is like pressing the fast-forward switch on the surrounding scenery.

If you’re looking for an easy ride, look elsewhere, for the acceleration is so breathtaking that it would be very easy to find yourself hurtling into a corner faster than even the brakes could handle, powerful and ABS-equipped though they are; particularly since at 238kg it’s on the hefty side.

In short, it demands your full concentration all the time, and you’ll never get close to using its potential on the road. Probably not even on a track.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 Review 2022 : Impressive Looks

The overall design of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 is the result of a collaboration between three distinct divisions beneath Kawasaki’s umbrella: the KRT branch, aerospace engineering division, and gas-turbine group. Far from being an exercise in subtlety, the Ninja H2 is one Kawi product that leaves observers no doubt as to its nature.

It starts out with a cut-down and cut-out front fender that doubles as a guard for the swept area of the inverted front forks and a fairing to guide the slipstream around the stems. This lowers the induced drag.

A pair of intake scoops dominate the gnarly-looking front fairing. The scoops shunt pressurized air from the entry back through a carbon-fiber duct running back to the supercharger inlet along the left side of the bike.

Carbon fiber is the material of choice for the front fairing as well as the quartet of spoilers that provide ample downforce when underway at speed. This keeps the front wheel planted and its contact patch well engaged with the tarmac.

A fighter jet-like bubblescreen rounds off the top of the fairing with Kawi’s Rivermark emblem as the only adornment on the H2 R’s visage. A pair of cheek fairings extend downward to complete the fairing and shroud the radiator while accentuating the all-up-front look.

As for instrumentation, a round analog gauge displays the revs with a color LCD screen that delivers the other pertinent metrics and a ring of LED indicator lights to wrap it up. The tach has a blackout background with illuminated orange numerals that light up as the needle passes them on its way up the range for a cool visual effect.

In addition to the usual metrics, the display includes a lean-angle indicator and a boost gauge that racers may ultimately find useful. A pair of dead-short control bars mount directly to the upper tripleclamp to pull you forward over the 4.5-gallon fuel tank into a most-aggressive posture that leaves no possibility of pushing off to find an upright riding position.

Shoulders along the top of the tank form knee pockets on both sides where the tank wanes to meet the narrow waist at the tank/seat/frame juncture. The saddle itself rests in a deep swale created by the fuel tank hump and the upswept tail that’s capped by a fairing with no p-pad. Nope, this isn’t a bike that’s built to share the fun with a friend.

An underslung LED taillight provides the only illumination on the H2 with a swingarm-mount hugger to complete the rear fling control. Mirror Coated Matte Spark Black is the finish of choice, and it comes with Kawi’s “self-repairing” paint that can effectively heal itself after receiving certain types of scratches.

Just a glance is enough to convey the serious nature of this machine. We would reiterate that the H2 is strictly a closed-circuit or road-course bike and not street legal anywhere.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 Review 2022 : Powertrain & Range

That is how fast this bike is, and yes, we found it most intoxicating. Blasting past cars on the highway, secure in the knowledge that unless there was a prancing horse or raging bull on the bonnet, nothing was going to catch us.

The power developed by the H2 is so great, that we were spinning up the rear tyre at something over twice the national speed limit. We only noticed when our riding buddy asked, “is the rear tyre rubber supposed to curl up in that way?”

This is when the Ninja H2 is truly in its element, blasting down the highway, watching the numbers on the speedometer flick over into digits that other superbikes do not even approach. And you really should only ride the H2 on the highway, between petrol stations, because this is the thirstiest bike we’ve ridden outside of a racetrack or drag strip.

During our time with the H2, the on-board computer recorded a worst fuel consumption figure of 8.7 litres per 100 km. Judicious use of the throttle, bumbling along following our buddy on his Hyperstrada, gave us… 7.9 litres per 100 km.

So, yes, if you’re planning on taking the H2 on any long jaunts, pay attention the fuel consumption afforded by the 17-litre fuel tank. In theory, that should give you about an hour’s riding, give or take, which is about as much as your back could take crouched over in race position, really.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 Review 2022 : Performance

The massive power of the supercharged engine necessitates a multitude of high-performance components to ensure an unforgettably effortless, yet forceful experience.

The Öhlins® TTX36 rear shock offers precise damping for enhanced traction, comfort and feedback to the rider. The KYB® AOS-II (Air-Oil-Separate) low friction cartridge fork offers superb action; initial stroke is smooth and compliant followed by progressive damping through the end of the stroke. The front fork is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping, as well as preload.

The Ninja H2® hypersport utilizes Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) technology and comes equipped with dual radial-mount opposed four-piston Brembo Stylema® front calipers and semi-floating 330mm discs for aggressive braking. The Brembo clutch and front brake levers were designed to prevent wind force from engaging the levers while at higher speed.

The lightweight cast aluminum wheels were designed specifically for the Ninja H2® and were created using analysis from Kawasaki’s World Superbike team. Star-pattern 5-spoke wheels offer optimum rigidity for high-power performance and feature pinstripes for a prestigious image. Bridgestone Battlax RS11 sport tires contribute to sharp handling.

The balanced supercharged engine delivers both exhilarating acceleration and superb fuel efficiency. The key to achieving this balance was increasing the engine’s thermal efficiency by utilizing a high compression ratio. Designed for high-performance racing engines, the premium dog-ring transmission allows for smooth, precise, quick shifting. Rather than shifting gears into place, the gears in this configuration stay in place, with the lightweight dog rings moving to engage the gears. A high-quality hydraulic Assist and Slipper clutch minimizes wheel chatter caused by rapid downshifting and self-adjusts to ensure consistent performance and smooth actuation.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 Review 2022 : Riding & Comfort

The Kawasaki Ninja H2 is the newest model in Kawasaki’s motorcycle lineup. This bike is designed with speed and power in mind, as well as balanced performance, comfort, and safety. It has a four-cylinder engine that delivers about 300 horsepower. The H2 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.5 seconds with an estimated top speed of 200 mph.

This bike is designed to be safer than other sportbikes. It is equipped with a dual-channel ABS system. Many other sportbikes use the single-channel system. Single-channel systems have a single control valve, so they can only apply ABS to the front wheel. Most dual-channel ABS systems have two control valves, one for each side of the motorcycle, which makes it possible to apply the brakes to both wheels at the same time.

The dual-channel brakes are lighter than single-channel brakes. This is because the brakes still need to be built into the frame and the weight of the brakes doesn’t change from a single-channel to a dual-channel system. The H2 also has a stability control system. This system is a traction control system. It can apply brakes to help stabilize the motorcycle when the tires lose traction. It can also turn off the engine to help stabilize the motorcycle.

Our Opinion

The Kawasaki Ninja H2 is a part of Dhoni’s enviable bike collection, which includes beauties like Confederate Hellcat X132, Ducati 1098, Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R, Harley Davidson Fatboy and the Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat, among others.
