Kawasaki Ninja H2R Video | ‘Getting Sharper and Sharper’

Kawasaki Ninja H2R Video

With about 300 horsepower on tap, there’s no doubting the Kawasaki Ninja H2R’s potential where it was designed to be – the track.

The latest video, simply titled “2015 Kawasaki Ninja H2R – Track Test” shows the supercharged 998cc inline-four H2R in action at an undisclosed circuit.

Besides its “Built Beyond Belief” tagline, the H2R, which was unveiled at the INTERMOT motorcycle show in Cologne, Germany, last week, is only explained one other way on the video – “getting sharper and sharper.”

Kawasaki launched this video today, likely to garner more hype ahead of street version debut at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this November. Details of the street version – the H2 – remain completely secret, but we know from teaser photos that it will be very similar to the H2R, including the single-sided swing arm.

We’ll have to wait until EICMA, though, for all the details. The video above should keep everyone satisfied for the time being. And Kawasaki is sure to release a few more over the next month ahead of EICMA.
