Ninja H2R images released! 295hp track weapon! - News

TrackDays.co.uk has been dribbling over the latest pictures of Kawasaki's latest unveiling. The track only Ninja H2R. Reported to have a whopping 296hp hidden in the little 1000cc supercharged power plant. Kawasaki haven'tgiven any indication of the acceleration or top speed but we think it will easily crack the 200mph barrier.

Kawasaki wanted to "offer the kind of acceleration no rider had experienced before" We think they have done that job very well indeed! If the power figures are to be believed, we could have a bike here which thoroughly upsets the current speed/power competition. The nearest competitor to this would be the S1000R but at only 199HP the Kawasaki still makes 50% more power.

While there is no word yet on electronic wizardry to keep this thing rubber side up and mostly on two wheels, we can see a quick shifter on the gear actuator and it looks like the KISS traction control system and electronic steering damper to make their presence known.

The H2R unveiling has been the subject of a huge media campaign but other manufacturers have been silent, but we expect Yamaha will have something in the wings with the R1 series very soon. Technology is moving extremely quickly recent with insane power being reached. We cant decide wether this is simply too much power to be utilised safely. Keep your eyes peeled for the H2 road version unveiling in a few weeks.
