The Kawasaki Ninja H2R garnered a lot of interest at the 2014 Intermot. The Japanese bike manufacturer then showcased a street-legal version of this hyper bike, called the H2. Various bits of the H2 are being teased by Kawasaki in a phased manner and now the company has unveiled the cool instrument cluster as well as the list of electronics that the H2 comes with. The street-legal H2 will be officially showcased at the EICMA show in Milan on 4th November.
The Kawasaki Ninja H2 does not get a fully digital instrument cluster. Instead, it gets a blend of analog and digital bits. The tachometer is analog and it shows markings till 16,000 RPM. Circling the RPM meter are various small indicator lights for functions such as headlights, ABS, oil pressure, side turn indicators, etc. To the right of the tachometer is a cool looking screen that comes with a blue backlit. The screen displays information like speed, ODO reading and tripmeter readings.
Kawasaki Ninja H2 Electronics –
- KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Braking System)
- ESD (Electronic Steering Damper)
- Rain Mode
- KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode)
- KEBC (Kawasaki Engine Brake Control)
- KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)
- KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control)
Powering the Kawasaki Ninja H2 is a 1.0-litre, supercharged, 4-cylinder engine that is likely to produce 250 HP of power. The bike will share its trellis frame and other carbon fibre components with the H2R. The overall styling philosophy will be similar to the H2R but the fairing will be toned down and the bike will also get a vertically-stacked twin exhaust and a rear number plate holder.
