2017 Kawasaki Ninja H2R Sports Bike – Features and Price
The newly launched 2017 Kawasaki Ninja H2R Sports Bike features the powerful engine of 998cc with inline 4-cylinder delivering the massive amount of acceleration and power. It has the centrifugal-type super charger which has been chosen for high-rpm performance and it efficient at compressing air while minimizing the heat. This supercharger is designed to match its engine providing the high-efficiency operation over the wider range of conditions. The impeller has a 3D complex shape featuring the forged aluminum for better precision and durability. It can spin at a 9.2x speed of the crankshaft reaching the maximum speed at 130,000 rpm plus it has the pumping capacity of 200 liters of air per second into the engine. The planetary gear is manufactured by using the KHI’s Aerospace Company and it is very compact and efficient at transferring power. This gear runs off the power from the crankshaft and drives the impeller at high rpm. This engine was specially crafted for enduring the extreme stress from the power created by the supercharger. The precision-honed combustion chamber comes with the flat piston crown from KHI’s technology that helps to prevent detonation. The engine performs the best performance like in 2017 Kawasaki Ninja H2. The use of new assist and slipper clutch provides the light clutch, which pulls and minimizes the rear wheel chatter caused by the aggressive downshifting.
The newly launched 2017 Kawasaki Ninja H2R Sports Bike provides the ultimate performance due to its quality components. These components are specially designed for this bike for unmatchable performance at track speeds. The use of new dog-ring transmission allows for effortless and short shifting experience. It is amazing because the lightweight dog rings move to engage gears instead of shifting gears into place. The use of high-precision hydraulic clutch contains the Brembo components for smooth and precise actuation and best performance. The new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja H2R Sports Bike features the latest Ohlins TTX36 rear shock which offers the precise damping for better traction, comfort, and feedback. The new remote shock preload adjuster makes it much easy to adjust the settings without any use of the tool. The KYB AOS-2 (Air-Oil-Separate) gives the low friction cartridge fork, which provides the best action. Its initial stroke is smooth and is compliant followed by the progressive damping through the end of the stroke. The front fork is fully adjustable for the compression and rebound damping as well as its preload. It features the quality components like the new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon for an ultimate performance. The new Brembo clutch lever and the new front brake lever are carefully designed for preventing the wind force from engaging the lever at high speed. The top-shelf Brembo brake components are specially tuned for powerful and progressive damping response. The new two large Brembo semi-floating disc of 330 mm is being used at the front. It is gripped by the dual radial-mount Brembo Monobloc calipers for the outstanding braking force. The rear section has 250 mm of disc giving an excellent amount of stopping force. The new and lightweight cast aluminum wheels have been specially designed for Ninja H2R and it was created using analysis from Kawasaki’s World Superbike team. The star-pattern 5-spoke wheels give an optimum rigidity for higher performance. The rear tire of 200 mm ensures that engine efficiently transfers its power to the ground.

The all-new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja H2R Sports Bike features the highly rigid carbon-fiber upper cowl and new aerodynamically shaped rear cowl, which helps efficiently to direct the airflow to reduce friction. The new chin spoiler on the upper cowl is distinguished in its form and it contributes to the downforce generation and better stability. The new carbon-fiber 2-blade lower wings provide more downforce for an ultimate performance at high speeds. The carbon-fiber vortex down control wings and it is specially designed by KHI’s Aerospace Division containing an angled winglet for smooth airflow. The new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja H2R Sports Bike has compact side cowls and under cowls especially designed to assist with heat dissipation. The new trellis frame gives the strength to harness the power of the supercharged engine. This frame also ensures an aggressive sports riding. This Kawasaki sports bike is painted with Mirror Coated Matte Sports Black paint on its fuel tank, fairing and seat cowl. The multi-layer composite paints contain the layer of pure silver formed from the chemical reaction, which creates the mirrored effect. The dark base coat shows through the silver for a deep 3D appearance. This silver effect creates the brilliant metallic effect. An iconic Kawasaki River Mark is prominent on the front cowl, which shows the legacy of this bike. The new bank angle display and the maximum back angle-recording function is being used in it. The multi-function meter with digital LCD screen is used it has black or white reverse display. The new analog-style tachometer comes as standard in it. The numerous display functions are used in it including gear position indicator, odometer, average mileage, fuel consumption, boost indicator and much more. The tachometer design contains an actual needle enhanced by the backlit rpm number, which illuminates to chase the tachometer needle as it moves around the dial. The bright and compact LED headlamps are carefully positioned. The new LED taillight enhances the beauty of rear section while the rear turn signals have an inner lens, surface texturing and surface-emitting LEDs for better performance.
