BUILT BEYOND BELIEF

An extension of the “Built Beyond Belief” concept of the original Ninja H2, the new Ninja H2 Carbon benefits from engine updates that increase maximum power to 231 PS† – making these supercharged supersport machines Kawasaki’s most powerful street models ever. † This engine is rated in PS power units. Gross power is different from net power. Net power is generally less than gross, but varies with engine specifications. Gross power is a general measure to compare one engine to another, as to its overall capacity. Your specific engine net power rating will be different and most likely less than the rated power. As of August 2018 (per Kawasaki market research)

MORE POWERFUL ENGINE

Increased Power: 231PS!

With its significantly increased power, the Ninja H2’s supercharged acceleration is more exhilarating than ever. Maximum output is now 170.0 kW (231 PS)†, making the Ninja H2 Carbon the most powerful street model in the Kawasaki lineup, and the most powerful mass-production model on the market††.

Feedback from the Balanced Supercharged engine of the Ninja H2 SX delivers increased engine efficiency. This results in fuel efficiency on par with its predecessor, despite an approximately 15% increase in power. Key components from the Ninja H2 SX include: air filter, intake chamber, and spark plugs.

CHANGES FOR 2019MY

2019MY Ninja H2 Carbon has number of new and updated features, engine max power 231PS, Brembo Sylema front calipers, a Bluetooth chip built in the instrument panel enables riders to connect wirelessly to their smart phone. All LED type lighting and highly durably paint enhances the long term ownership.

TFT INSTRUMENTATION

A Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application “RIDEOLOGY THE APP,” a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience. A number of functions are available: - Vehicle Info: information such as fuel gauge, odometer, maintenance schedule, etc can be viewed via the smartphone. - Riding Log: route and rpm can be can be viewed via the smartphone. - Telephone notices: when a call, text or mail is received by the smartphone, this is indicated on the instrument display. - General Settings: general instrument display settings (such as preferred units, date, date format, etc) can be adjusted via the smartphone.

BOSCH IMU (INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT)

The Ninja H2 Carbon compact IMU operates in 6 DOF (degrees of freedom): 5 measured + 1 calculated. Combined with Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modelling program, input from the IMU enables even more precise chassis orientation awareness, the key to bringing Kawasaki’s electronics to the next level. The use of Bosch’s compact IMU allows an additional layer of precision to be added to the already high-level S-KTRC, KLCM and KIBS. A cornering managment function uses KIBS and S-KTRIC to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner (ABS models only).

FRONT SUSPENSION

KYB AOS-II high quality racing suspension is fitted to the Ninja H2 Carbon. Based on the Air-Oil Separate cartridge fork developed for motocross racing, this design was the industry’s first use of this high-performance racing suspension on an on-road motorcycle. DLC coated inner tubes are designed for low friction, the ø43 mm front fork offers superb action: smooth initial action is followed by strong damping at the end of the stroke.

ÖHLINS TTX36 REAR SUSPENSION

The addition of Öhlins’ highly acclaimed TTX shock offers numerous rider benefits: - Increased rear stability,enhanced cornering performance. - Excellent damping, increased riding comfort and sportier handling - Increased rider confidence on circuit. - Superb feedback from the road. - More stability at speed, and lane changes executed more easily. - Around town, the supple suspension absorbs bumps with ease, adding to ride comfort.

THE TRANSMISSION

To facilitate smooth, quick shifting, a dog-ring type transmission was selected. This is the kind of transmission commonly found in MotoGP or Formula 1, and was developed with feedback from the Kawasaki Racing Team.

Unlike a standard motorcycle transmission in which shift forks slide the gears into position, with a dog-ring transmission the gears all stay in place. Only the dog rings move, sliding into position to engage the desired gear.

Because the dog rings are much lighter than transmission gears, this type of transmission offers a much lighter shift effort. Shift touch is also improved, and a much shorter shift time is possible—which facilitates quick acceleration.

slide 6

OIL JETS

In the interest of keeping the engine compact and simple, a single lubrication system provides cooling oil for the engine components, supercharger and transmission.

Oil jets lubricate the supercharger chain at the contact points (two places) where the chain meets the upper and lower gears.

In addition to the two oil jets, the supercharger drive train’s lower gear has an oil passage.

Inside the engine, there are two oil jets per cylinder to ensure the hot pistons are effectively cooled.

Transmission oil jets (first use in a Kawasaki motorcycle) enable a compact transmission with high durability.

BRAKES

A pair of massive ø330 mm Brembo semi-floating discs with a thickness of t5.5 mm deliver superb braking force. Combined with Brembo’s Stylema monobloc calipers which are the company’s latest high-spec street-use calipers. A large 250 mm diameter disc generates strong braking force at the rear.
