Kawasaki is well known to make excellent sports and road-bikes. From an engineering perspective, the Ninja H2 and H2R present a new level of greatness.
This fastest accelerating motorcycle ever is achieved by its state-of-the-art supercharged engine, where the differences between the street-version H2 (200hp) and the track-only H2R (320hp) engine are only the camshafts, head gasket, clutch and ECU settings. Here are 10 things you should know about these supercharged Ninjas.
1. It carries the Kawasaki “River Mark”
Dating to the 1870s, founder Shozo Kawasaki created a flag from the character ‘river’ for his then shipping business. Consequently, the “River Mark’ was adopted by Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) representing the group’s technology, originality and innovation.

Launched at Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia is first country in Asia to have the Kawasaki Ninja H2 and H2 R (not including Japan). I’m thinking this is due to Malaysia that have the proper place to have the power of this bike to be unleashed, that is the Sepang Circuit. As we know, the Ninja H2 R are track only bike and you can never have it registered to make it road legal, so, it is logic that Malaysia to have it available. For the road use, you can still obtain the Ninja H2 which is road legal hyperbike that can maxes out 300km/h, but on the road, you should limit the speed to only 110km/h.
Kawasaki Vulcan S is also an interesting bike to have here in Malaysia. It is a cruiser which suits the condition in Malaysia since we have nice coastal beach street that we can enjoy riding it. Previously, Malaysia have already have the Kawasaki Vulcan VN500 that proves to be popular sometimes ago. Priced below RM30,000, this is one bike that offer excellent value-for-money. You’ll get 650cc bike with a muscular look from Kawasaki that proves to be reliable. Revival of the cruiser as said by Kawasaki Malaysia. I guessing this Vulcan S will be hugely popular once again in Malaysia. It just ticks all the box correctly. Great engine? Check. Nice design? Check. Cheap price? Check!
Available only sometime next year. Price is after the jump: Continue reading “2015 Kawasaki Ninja H2, H2R and Vulcan S unveiled in Malaysia”
