Ninja H2 R

The launching point for the development of the Ninja H2R was a strong desire to offer riders something they had never before experienced. The bike needed to deliver intense acceleration and an ultra-high top speed, coupled with supersport-level circuit performance. The H2R has fully encapsulated what it is like to ride a Kawasaki Ninja.
