Kawasaki 2020 Ninja H2 Carbon Sports Motorcycle

The Kawasaki 2020 Ninja H2 Carbon Sports Motorcycle is the ultimate performance street legal motorbike, developed with state-of-the-art technology and in collaboration with Kawasaki’s high-performance motorcycle, aerospace and gas turbine division. With another leap in power and technology, the 2020 Ninja H2 and H2 Carbon have made it again.

The 998cc supercharged engine produces even more energy now, the next-generation BremboStylema calipers deliver incredible braking performance, and a complete TFT dashboard with Bluetooth connectivity keeps you connected in ways you’ve ever imagined. Did not It even includes highly resistant paint that repairs minor scratches when exposed to the sun. Unsurprisingly, when these features are already included in the impressive product, H2 is beyond certainty.

Engine

For intense speeds, the Kawasaki Ninja H2 engine should be smaller and provide more horsepower. It was decided that a supercharger was needed, but an existing supercharger alone would not suffice. The collaboration between Kawasaki’s technical divisions resulted in a highly efficient supercharger that did not require an intercooler to cool the air fed to the engine.

The engine is intended to withstand 1.5-2 times the pressure of an engine of the same capacity. The bike is suitable for high-speed engine response; the inertial moment of the crankshaft was kept as low as possible and paired with a lightweight flywheel. The low rotation mass also contributes to the fast handling properties.

Dual secondary balancers keep engine vibration to a minimum. Connecting rods have large bolt diameters for strength and longevity in high productivity environments, and they balance strength and weight. The bike has extremely high temperatures generated by the engine; cast pistons perform better than forged pistons. The unique casting method creates hollow sections to achieve maximum thickness while losing weight.

A V-tube on the ground of the second piston ring reduces blow bye and oil consumption by preventing the upper ring from fluttering. The piston is cooled by two oil jets per cylinder. The bottom of the piston dome is sprayed with one nozzle, while the exhaust side under the dome is sprayed with the other.

A large, deep sump oil pan helps cool the oil. To avoid cavitation, the oil pump is always covered by oil, thanks to the oil pan design. Furthermore, the specific angle design and position of the oil filter helps reduce cavitation during rapid acceleration and deceleration.

The high-flow oil pump helps cool the oil and has a very high flow rate to ensure that the engine and transmission are correctly lubricated.

To eliminate banging, Kawasaki Gas Turbine and Machinery Company used piston flat crown and combustion chamber designs.

The bike has more accurate cylinder dimensions; a mock cylinder head is used during the honing process that can be used to reduce the mechanical damage to the piston rings and to increase the engine response.

Transmission

Brembo radial-pump master cylinder provides smooth and hydraulic clutch activation for excellent linearity. Quick gear changes are made easy with a cassette-style transmission.

The gears are connected to the input transmission shaft, and in the dog-ring transmission, the ring rotates to attach the gears to the output shaft, based on MotoGP technology. Mild shifts, better feel, and faster shifts are the result.

Transmission oil jets at each gear mesh and shift fork position provide direct cooling and better lubrication for excellent durability.

Assist & Slipper Clutch.

The clutch is pressed together during acceleration (Assist function) using the rotating forces of the clutch hub and pressure plate, allowing the use of low and light clutch springs for a soft feeling on the lever. The sleeper function allows some clutches to slip under high back-torque conditions, such as when very few gears are selected during downshifting, to help the engine prevent lockup, stalling, and rear-wheel hop. When the clutch is removed, the Judder Spring component helps reduce the Judder.

Electronics

Because of Kawasaki’s next-level electronics and state-of-the-art programming for the track, which gives the ECU a precise and real-time picture of what the chassis is doing with minimal software, Kawasaki’s state-of-the-art electronics has always kept track. But has performed well. Thanks to the latest iteration of dynamic modeling software owned by Bosch IMU and Kawasaki, Ninja H2’s electronic management technology has moved from setting type and reaction type systems to feedback-type systems to the next level. This increased capability allows riders to make the most of the Ninja H2 on the track.

Kawasaki’s cornering management function

The Corner Management Function employs KIBS and KTRC to help racers follow their chosen course through the Track Corner and reduce the tendency for the bike to overtake while applying the brakes. Based on the motorcycle’s leanness and pitch angles, IMU helps the system maintain maximum hydraulic pressure.

Chassis

The design of the chassis was supposed to be strong enough to handle high engine power and external interruptions at high speeds on the circuit. A short wheelbase was also required to maintain fast handling and performance. Finally, a chassis was needed to help dissipate the heat generated by such a powerful engine.

The trail frame is made of high tensile steel, in which the diameter, thickness, and bend of each piece of pipe are precisely adjusted to achieve the desired stiffness.

The ideal stiffness balance allows for high-speed track riding while also providing the ability to absorb external obstacles. The slim frame design and horizontal positioning of the diecast aluminum rear frame will enable the rider’s legs to reach the ground quickly. The concave shape of the trail frame allows air to circulate through it, which helps dissipate engine heat.

To make the swing arm mounting plate part of the frame, it is bolted to the rear of the engine. It eliminates frame cross members, makes the frame lighter, and allows the high output engine chain tension to be effectively transferred to the rigid engine block.

Suspension

For a smoother ride and better steering and handling, the Uni-Trak® linkage rear suspension system offers progressive action for the rear shock so that minor collisions are gently moist and large crashes are very wet.

The swing arm on the H2 is one-sided. It is made of forged and pressed aluminum pieces and is extremely strong and lightweight. It provides extra room for an excellent exhaust form on the right side of the motorcycle.

Öhlins Shock

The machined cylinder body includes Ohlins TTX36 shock, TTX GP-style damping adjustment, and remote pre-load adjuster. Shock improves cornering performance, is flexible for comfortable riding and dynamic handling, contributes to the feel of the front, and provides excellent road input.

The invention shock has a concentric twin-tube construction and a solid core piston that ultimately moves the oil in the shock cylinder. Damping generating components are placed between the sub-cylinder head and the upper reservoir of the shock cylinder. The basic design allows the shock components to be lighter and more compact while ensuring constant wetting and preventing cavitation.

Because the shock design prevents cavitation, the gas pressure is about half that of a standard shock, allowing fewer friction seals to reduce and smooth the process.

Separate channels connect the compression and rebound valves to their respective sides of the central piston, allowing the compression and rebound damping adjustments to be completely separated. It helps set up the suspension as adjusting one damping setting does not affect the other.

High-end, machined finish TTXGP style adjustable knobs that can be twisted by hand or with Allen Key are used to regulate compression and rebound damping.

Remote Hand Turn Preload Adjuster allows you to make adjustments without equipment.

Aerodynamic Bodywork

Functional design improves engine stability and cooling efficiency.

The chin filter is integrated into the upper cavity to help create a downward force for better speed stability. To reduce drag, the air that damages the chin is carried to the sides using special air channels. The airflow above the mirror stays with the granny flaps on the rear edges, created by Kawasaki’s aerospace division, generating downward force.

The compact side cowl almost exposes the engine, allowing the hot air to escape for better heat dissipation when paired with the trail structure. The stepped front fender design helps cool the airflow towards the radiator.

The River Mark on the Kauling front represents the legacy of Kawasaki performance and the joint efforts of the Kawasaki Akashi Group on this ultimate motorcycle.
