Has not less than 300 PS on tap.
There is a good reason why the Kawasaki Ninja H2R is not allowed to be unleashed on a public road and this video tells you why. Cycle World gained exclusive access to the Ninja H2R but only onboard a dyno test rig.
Being a prototype with a target horsepower of 300 PS (295.7 bhp), Kawasaki has forbidden the Cycle World from talking about the exact output figures from the dyno run but what we get is a glimpse of what the concept is capable of. The supercharged 998 cc inline four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine wakes up with an intent to devour the tarmac quicker than anything else on two wheels.
The supercharger which spins 10 times faster than the crankshaft makes for an intimidating exhaust note and the engine goes through the rev range faster than most riders’ reaction time to shift up! In a nutshell, the Kawasaki Ninja H2R is not only for a closed course but also only for the elite group of riders who have seen everything else the world of motorcycles has to offer.
