Kawasaki is teasing a new model today, which it will unveil at the upcoming INTERMOT show in October. Called the Kawasaki H2, the name harkens back to a pivotal time in Kawasaki’s motorcycle history, where the Japanese company made one of the most highly regarded line of sport bikes of its time.
While the video itself reveals very little in information, and only a couple looks at the machine,the teaser website provides us with a little more information.
Hidden in the website is the following phrase: “The Ninja H2 was not designed with meeting regulations a primary concern. Kawasaki’s latest flagship is the result of a pure exercise in pushing the limits of motorcycle technology with the goal of creating the ideal road sports bike.”
Yesterday we introduced you to the awesome sound of Kawasaki’s all-new, upcoming Ninja H2 bike, and it looks like this machine has already sparked the wild imagination of quite a lot of guys. The latest rumor in the business is that the Ninja H2 would be the new flagship of House Akashi… possibly meaning that the Ninja ZX-14R will be dethroned, according to bikewale.
The bike in question is apparently called the Ninja H2, and it would ostensibly be Kawasaki's flagship superbike – a place currently taken by theNinja ZX-14Rwith its 1.4-liter inline-four and Ferrari Testarossa styling. The supercharged engine in the Ninja H2 is also expected to pack four cylinders, and though we don't know how much they will displace, word has it the engine is based on 636cc engine in the ZX-6R but with competence borrowed from the company's aerospace and turbine divisions to blow the mirrors off heavier liter bikes.
