Ninja H2R Kawasaki 2019 Sports Motorcycle Review Specs

The creation of the Ninja H2R was sparked by a goal to provide riders with an experience they had never had before. The bike has to accelerate quickly and reach a peak speed of more than 200 mph. The H2R has captured the experience of riding a Kawasaki Ninja in all its glory.

Ninja H2 and Carbon have pushed the boundaries of power and technology once again with the release of 2019’s models. More power, better braking, and a full-color TFT display with Bluetooth connection are all part of the package that makes the 998cc Supercharged engine one of the most potent on the market. The paint on this model is so challenging that it can even repair tiny scratches in the sun. It’s little surprise the H2 is dubbed “Built Beyond Belief” with all of these incredible features.

Ninja H2R Kawasaki 2019 Sports Motorcycle – Features


Because it is not designed for usage on public roads, streets, or highways, the Ninja H2R is only suitable for closed-course riding. Closed-circuit driving should be the only mode of transportation permitted for this vehicle.

The Ninja H2R-specific parts may only be acquired with evidence of H2R ownership and cannot be purchased without it (product registration, VIN confirmation, etc.).

Exhaust Sound

Using Auto-Cycle Union (ACU) norms, the Ninja H2R’s exhaust sound level is 120 dB/A at the time of factory shipping. This amount of exhaust sound must be verified by the owner to ensure that closed course noise laws allow it. Performance and volume may be affected by modifications to the exhaust system.

Usage, Maintenance, and Warranty

The Ninja H2R is a closed-circuit racing-only variant; hence it has unique operating and maintenance requirements.


Never use any other brand or model of tires on the Ninja H2R than those that came standard with the bike. Front, Bridgestone, and Racing Battlax V01F tires are used. Frontal protection. Rear: Bridgestone and Racing Battlax V01R Medium Soft Rear tires are recommended. Kawasaki disapproves Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V02F, and V02R tires for Ninja H2Rs.

Tire Warmers

Always apply tire warmers before riding the Ninja H2R to keep the tires from losing traction. The lack of traction provided by cold tires may lead to a loss of control of the vehicle and a collision, both of which can end in severe injury or death.

Vehicle storage

The Ninja H2R should always be stored with the front and rear tires off the ground using motorcycle supports. To avoid tire deformation and a decrease in performance, this should be done.

Vehicle Maintenance

The vehicle’s ECU keeps track of these service intervals, and the multifunction meter shows service alerts when they’re approaching. Additional information may be found in the Owner’s Manual.

Vehicle warranty

We do not provide warranties of any kind for the Ninja H2R, and it’s offered “as is.” The buyer assumes all costs associated with servicing, repairs, and upkeep.

More Powerful Engine

The supercharged acceleration of the Ninja H2 is more exciting than ever, thanks to the significant enhancements. Regarding fuel economy and range, the new Ninja H2TM SX motorcycle’s “balanced supercharged” engine performs well as the previous generation. A new air filter spark plugs and intake chamber all contribute to the gain in horsepower.

Brembo Stylema® Calipers

Brembo Stylema front calipers are standard equipment on the 2019 Ninja H2, H2 Carbon, and H2R hyper sportbikes. To enhance the high-tech improvement and luxury quality of the Kawasaki Ninja H2, Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon, and Kawasaki Ninja H2R, the Stylema calipers gripping semi-floating 330mm discs are fitted having KIBS ABS.

Bridgestone Battlax RS11 Sport Tires

With all-new Bridgestone Battlax RS11 sport tires (12/70-17 up front, 200/55-17 rear), the Ninja H2 and Ninja H2 Carbon continue to be technologically advanced.

TFT Color Instrumentation

The innovative, high-tech instrumentation design, which includes an analog-style tachometer and a high-grade full-color TFT LCD screen, contributes to the Ninja H2 flagship’s high level of quality. Riders may pick from four different display modes depending on what kind of riding they are performing at the moment.

TFT technology is used in the high-quality full-color display to guarantee visibility. You may choose from either black or white as your screen’s backdrop color and the screen brightness automatically adjusts to fit your lighting conditions. In addition to the scrollable multi-function windows, there are four display styles to choose from. At the rider’s fingers are all modes of operation and display settings.

The digital speedometer and gear position indicator are just two of several display functions that can be found on the instrument panel. Other features include an odometer and dual trip meters, a bank angle display and max bank angle recording function, coolant temperature and a boost indicator.

Smartphone Connectivity

This year’s Ninja H2 model from Kawasaki is the first motorbike connected to a smartphone through Bluetooth. Wi-Fi connectivity is possible thanks to a chip embedded in the instrument panel. Several instrument functions may be recorded, accessed, and reviewed using a smartphone app, improving the motorcycle experience. The following data may be accessed through the app on the linked smartphone:

  • Information about the vehicle, such as fuel level, trip meter, odometer, maintenance schedule, battery health, and so on.
  • GPS route information, rpm, gear position, and fuel economy are all included in the rider’s leg.
  • Notifications for incoming calls, texts, or emails appear on the car’s dashboard when the driver’s smartphone receives them.

Furthermore, the smartphone may be used to adjust the bike’s general display settings (such as power or riding modes and ride assistance aids, like the Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS)).

Even if you’re not riding a motorbike, you can still utilize the app. When using the app while riding, the bike and smartphone constantly communicate. This information is maintained on a smartphone after the engine has been shut down or if the rider’s smartphone is no longer within the range of the instrument’s chip. Before turning the engine on and re-entering the field, you may make adjustments to your vehicle’s settings using your smartphone’s app when it’s switched off or out of range.

All-LED Lighting

An all-new LED turn signals and an LED license plate lamp on the 2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon that means all lighting equipment (headlamp, position lights, taillight, and turn signals) are now LED technology.


Ninja H2’s supercharged engine gets a new “Supercharged” logo to show its increased power. The high-performance engine’s distinctiveness is highlighted by red highlights, and images portraying intake air being swirled around at high velocity evoke a sensation of speed. Wheel pinstripes, a new addition for 2019, are another way to portray a high-class image.

Highly Durable Paint

Kawasaki’s High-Durability Paint (used on all non-carbon bodywork parts). Using a special coating, the fresh paint can mend minor scratches, allowing it to keep its high-quality gloss even after typical wear and tear. Microscopically hard and soft segments behave like a chemical spring, generating a trampoline effect that grips several shocks.
