Kawasaki India delivered the first and the only 2019 Ninja H2R on March 3. The 2019 avatar of the supercharged track machine boasts many updates including Brembo’s Stylema monobloc callipers, the new supercharged emblem and Kawasaki’s self-healing paint. This track-only machine has put the likes of Bugatti Veyron and even a F1 car in a drag race.
What’s special about the Kawasaki Ninja H2R
The Kawasaki Ninja H2R packs a 998cc, inline-four, supercharged mill that produces 317bhp with Ram Air and 165Nm. This track monster features KYB AOS-II racing suspension at the front and Ohlins TTX36 unit for the rear. Radially-mounted Brembo aluminium M50 callipers at the front and a 250mm single disc at the rear handle the braking duties.

The motorcycle’s silver-mirror paint features a special coat which allows the paint to “heal” itself. Electronics on the bike include cornering management function, launch control, traction control, ABS, quickshifter, bank angle display and max angle recording function. To support the rider, the seat features hip supporting pads that are adjustable 15mm backwards to suit riders of all sizes.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Naoki Matsumoto, managing director of India Kawasaki Motors Pvt. Ltd. said, “We are indeed happy to deliver our flagship model, the Ninja H2R, in India. Kawasaki has stunned the world with this model. The Ninja H2R is the world’s supercharged hypersport motorcycle and to deliver one unit in India is certainly a proud moment for Kawasaki India.”
