The track only Kawasaki Ninja H2R is tuned by Trick Star racing to produce 400 PS instead of the stock 300 PS of power. The superbike is the most powerful production motorcycle in the world.
Kawasaki is known for its technologically advanced and stylish looking superbikes which have won hearts all over the world. The company amazed enthusiasts worldwide in 2014 when it launched the track only Ninja H2R with 300 PS of power, making it the most powerful production motorcycle in the world. Now, some crazy folks at Trick Star Racing have worked their magic on the superbike and have managed to clock 385 km/hr with it on a private test track in Japan.
The Kawasaki Ninja H2R is a track only motorcycle having a supercharged 4-cylinder 998cc engine which makes a humongous 300 PS of power. Trick Star tuned the bike and increased the power output to 400 PS which makes it possible for the motorcycle to achieve an eye-popping 385 km/hr. The superbike sports a beautiful white and green livery and was ridden by Ryuji Tsuruta, who is a WSBK rider, in the video. Trick Star Racing says that had they not ran out of the track, the bike would have easily crossed the 400 km/hr barrier.

Launched in 2014, the Kawasaki Ninja H2R is the track only edition of the Ninja H2 superbike. The superbike has a trellis frame chassis and a single-sided swingarm. It is also the first production motorcycle with a supercharged engine. The motorcycle features electronic aids such as throttle-by-wire, ABS, traction control and launch control.
In order to achieve such high speeds, Trick Star made many modifications to the superbike. They had to remove the factory standard winglets to reduce drag. The company also turned to tyre maker Dunlop and sourced special tyres for the motorbike so that it can handle such insane speeds. They also reworked the supercharger to produce more boost than stock.
