About Ninja H2R [2018-2019]

They may have sold out in 2016, but if you missed the opportunity, the Kawasaki H2 is back for 2017. In fact, there are two more options for the Indian buyer, the H2 Carbon and the full-fat H2R. Among the changes for 2017 are the addition of a rear Ohlins shock absorber with 22-step adjustment.

Complementing this is a six-axis Bosch IMU, which should make harnessing the H2's power a wee bit easier than before. There's also cornering ABS and a quickshifter that doesn't need the clutch for downshifts. Those who don't like being bent over all the time can opt for the Ergo-Fit handlebar, which makes the grips 2cm higher than usual. Also on the options list are heavier bar-end weights and frame sliders. The dashboard also shows the bank angle in real time now. The H2 range will not get the Euro 4 updates for India, since those have been reserved only for the European Union.

The H2 remains the base model, while the H2 Carbon is a neat way of offering a street-legal H2 that looks like the H2R. The Carbon is limited to 120 units and will offer a carbonfibre upper cowl, carbonfibre Akrapovic exhaust and a similar paint scheme as the H2R. It gets a small plaque on the supercharger telling you which of the 120 it is. Expect it to cost significantly more than the H2.

The H2R remains a track-only motorcycle and hideously expensive, but not much will be able to offer straight-line performance at the level the H2R offers.
