“Built Beyond Belief” - that’s the tag line Kawasaki is promoting its latest motorcycle with. While it is not uncommon for manufacturers to describe their upcoming machines with superlative phrases, most of them don’t live up to their hype. This one seems different though.
Earlier this week, Kawasaki released a couple of video clips teasing the new bike, named the Ninja H2. According to their official statement, the new motorcycle will be “ground-breaking”, and “will change the motorcycle landscape forever”. It further adds that the Ninja H2 will embody the spirit of the 1972 Kawasaki Mach 4 H2, and has been developed drawing on the skills and experience from experts from its motorcycle, aerospace, gas turbine, and other high-tech divisions in conglomerate.

From what has been revealed by Kawasaki, it is most certain that the new Ninja H2 will employ a supercharged engine, the first in a motorcycle in recent years. While the actual capacity is unknown, forced-induction engines have the potential to deliver as much performance as a naturally-aspirated unit of a larger displacement, while being physically compact and more efficient. Kawasaki had showcased a supercharged inline four-cylinder engine concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, but we’re not sure if it’s the same unit that will be used in the Ninja H2.
No other details are available at the moment, but worry not. Kawasaki is likely to tease more details in the days leading to the bike’s eventual launch at the 2014 Intermot Motorcycle Show in Cologne, Germany, on 30th September 2014. Watch this space!
