Kawasaki set out to create a factory-built motorcycle, where Kawasaki engineers were able to pursue unadulterated performance without the limitations of street or racing homologation. The first four-stroke, supercharged motorcycle from a major manufacturer, the Kawasaki Ninja H2R produces once unheard of power for a factory built motorcycle.
In order to create a version that was not only street legal, but also street capable, the Kawasaki Ninja H2 sport bike was born, using engineering shared from the Ninja H2R. The Ninja H2 was developed using the technology from the Ninja H2R model, but worked within the street-legal and street-capable parameters.
Kawasaki introduced the limited production Ninja H2 Carbon motorcycle in 2017. The Ninja H2 Carbon motorcycle was based on the 2017 Ninja H2, enhanced with special features it returns in limited quantities in 2018.
This incredible trio shares many of the technologically advanced components, including the 998cc inline four-cylinder engine, proprietary supercharger, trellis frame, compact superbike dimensions, aerodynamic bodywork, single-sided swingarm, powerful Brembo® brakes and much more.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (KHI) started full-scale production of motorcycles over a half century ago. The first Kawasaki motorcycle engine was designed based on technical know-how garnered from the development and production of aircraft engines, and Kawasaki’s entry into the motorcycle industry was driven by the company’s constant effort to develop new technologies.
Numerous new Kawasaki models introduced over the years have helped shape the market, and in the process have created enduring legends based on their unique engineering, power, design and riding pleasure. In the future, Kawasaki’s commitment to maintaining and furthering these strengths will surely give birth to new legends.
