Kawasaki Ninja H2 is coming on 30th September at Intermot – supercharged Kawa?

The media and my FB timeline has been flooded with a teaser from Kawasaki with the tag Ninja H2. Ninja H2 has already been made earlier in 1972 configured with 3-cylinder 2-stroke 750cc engine. It produces 74hp at 6,800RPM and 7.9kgm of torque at 6,500RPM. That number is not impressive for today value, but in that era of 70s, it can be said to be the “king of the streets”. For comparison, the 2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 4-stroke inline-4 engine can produce 129.3hp at high 13,500RPM.

So, to be the “king of the street” again, the Ninja H2 must have a powerful engine but it can’t be from another 2-stroke engine. One option they have is to supercharge the engine. Why not turbocharged it? I think, the supercharged engine will have a more linear power delivery and this can eliminate ‘power shock’ after the rider exit a turn. Compared to turbocharger, the power can shock the rider after the engine hits certain RPM range and when the boost is sufficient. Will Kawasaki us a supercharged engine? Then, what will be the price? Oh, the dilemma and the thoughts…

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Marc-Marquez---Repsol-Honda---British-MotoGP-race-winner

For the second consecutive year the British Grand Prix was the venue for a spectacular duel between Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Jorge Lorenzo, but this year it was Marquez who was the victor at Silverstone as the reigning World Champion beat his Spanish rival to the chequered flag.

The battle between Marquez and Lorenzo lasted almost the whole race and resulted in the winning race time being the quickest ever recorded at the Silverstone circuit. After trading the race lead a few times, Marquez managed to pull a small gap on the final lap to beat Lorenzo to the finish line by 0.732 seconds. On the other Movistar Yamaha MotoGP M1 Valentino Rossi was able to resist the challenge of Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa and Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso to take third place.  (more…)

Spyshot: Kawasaki ZX25RR or Next Ninja 250

There is a rumour that Kawasaki is preparing a new inline-4 engine with the capacity of 250cc. It has been a while since the era of ZXR 250 in 1998 that produces 45hp and a nice engine sound for the road in Malaysia. The spyshot above might be the inline-4 250cc ZX25RR or the next parallel twin 250cc next Ninja 250.
The side fairing show few differences compared to the current Ninja 250. It is said by tmcblog that the headlight might feature a much more slim headlight but still dual style.
It might be a while before we can know whether this can be real or not.
