Ninja H2

          The launching point for the development of the Ninja H2 was a strong desire to offer riders something they had never before experienced.Convinced that a truly extraordinary riding experience would not be found on a motorcycle that merely built on the performance of existingmodels, the design team committed to developing the “ultimate” motorcycle from a clean slate. The bike needed to deliver intense acceleration and an ultra-high top speed, coupled with supersport-level circuit performance. To realise this goal, help was enlisted from other companies in the Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) Group, precipitating an unprecedented level of inter-company collaboration.
