Kawasaki will be holding a track day exclusive for its owners on 3rd April in the morning which will be followed up by the launch of the highly awaited H2 superbike in the afternoon.
Kawasaki certainly has a dedicated following in the Indian market and with the performance bike segment booming in recent times, more and more enthusiasts are shifting towards the green lineup. Organising a special treat for its customers, the Japanese manufacturer will be holding a track day at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Greater Noida on 3rd April giving the owners a chance to explore the full potential of their bikes. What also makes this day special is that Kawasaki will be launching the much awaited H2 Superbike in the country on the same afternoon at the track.
A quick recap on the awesome figures of the Kawasaki H2, the bike uses a 998cc, inline four-cylinder ‘supercharged’ engine tuned to produce 200 PS of power and 133 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed transmission. The green giant offers an overwhelming power-to-weight ratio of 0.88 BHP per kg and is capable of doing the 0-100 km/hr run in 2.5 seconds. The top speed is in excess of 300 km/hr. We might even see all that power actually being utilised to its full potential to achieve that coveted top speed on the launch day at the track. The H2 comes with a kerb weight of 238 kgs and has extensively used carbon fibre in its construction.
Suspension duties on the Kawasaki Ninja H2 are performed by the 43 mm KYB fully adjusted inverted forks at the front and Uni-Track single-shock, single-sided swingarm at the rear. Stopping duties are performed by the 330 mm Brembo dual discs at the front with 4-piston callipers and a 250 mm single disc at the rear with 2-piston callipers. Loaded with tech wizardry that will also trickle down into other Kwackers, the H2 features KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control), KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Braking System), KEBC (Kawasaki Engine Brake Control), KSQ (Kawasaki Quick Shifter) and KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode) among other tech.
Only five units of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 will be coming to India and vine is that all five models have already been booked with an advance amount of Rs. 10 lakhs. The superbike will be priced at Rs. 33.56 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai) pitting it directly against the BMW S1000RR, new generation Yamaha R1 and the likes in the segment that also produce in excess of 200 HP of power.
