2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2 gets more power, Brembo Stylema calipers and a self healing paint
Kawasaki has updated its hyper sport offerings, the Ninja H2 along with its track-only twin, the H2R a part of the mid-life upgrade. The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2, showcased at the Bonneville Speed Week, gets a host of updates which includes a 15 per cent addition in power. The 998cc supercharged motor now makes 230PS which is 30PS more over the previous model. This has been achieved with the tweaks done to the intake, air filter, plugs and the ECU. Kawasaki claims that these updates done to the motor without compromising on the efficinecy were learnt from the development of the H2SX sports-tourer. In addition, the 2019 Kawasaki H2 also gets Brembo Stylema brake calipers and Bridgestone Battleax RS11 tyres.

In terms of design, the H2 comes with all-LED lighting all throughout. The Supercharged emblems have been redesigned for the new iteration. Importantly, this one gets Kawasaki's highly durable paint used almost on every non-carbon fibre panel on the motorcycle. Kawasaki claims that this paint will give a scratch proof top coat, just in case your parking lot has kids trying to fiddle with your prized possession. The other tweaks done to the 2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2 and the H2 Carbon is a full-color TFT infotainment screen, as seen on the H2SX, that comes with ride modes, smartphone connectivity and also a built-in GPS ride recorder that can help keep a track of information on the trips, efficiency and top speed achieved.

The track-spec 2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2R too gets the same updates in the form of the new paint, supercharged emblems and also the Brembo Stylema brake calipers that is also seen on the recently launched Ducati Panigale V4. Kawasaki has not announced the pricing of the 2019 models of the 2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2 and the H2R. Considering that the pricing of the previous models were $28,000 and $55,000 (Rs 20 lakh and Rs 38 lakh, excluding duty and taxes), the latest iterations should be priced in the similar range. As has been the case with the H2s, both the motorcycles will have a limited production run and will be sold out as soon as the bookings open in the international markets.
