KCMF monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner—from entry, through the apex, to corner exit—modulating brake force and engine power to facilitate smooth transition from acceleration to braking and back again.
A change to a LED-type license plate lamp means that all lighting equipment (headlamp, position lamps, taillight, turn signals and license plate lamp) on the Ninja H2 Carbon is now LED.
ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH: LIGHTER LEVER OPERATION

Although the Ninja H2 Carbon’s high performance cannot be denied, since it was not intended to be a race bike designed to turn quick lap times as efficiently as possible, it did not need the spartan accommodation.
THE KAWASAKI RIVER MARK
Special permission was obtained to use the River Mark on the Ninja H2 Carbon. Usually, its use on a product is reserved for models of historical significance.
HIGH PRECISION PRODUCTION
