Is owning a “normal” 200-horsepower, supercharged, aerospace-engineered superbike not quite enough? Or, more likely, are you a motorcycle collector? If the answer to either of those questions is “yes,” then feast your eyes on the limited edition Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon.
Read our First Look Review of the original 2015 Ninja H2
The Ninja H2 Carbon features a carbon fiber upper cowl that is reminiscent of the one used on the 300-horsepower, track-only H2R, mirror-finish paint and a serial number plate. Only 120 units will be produced, with a mere six allocated for the U.S.
Pricing has not been released (the regular 2017 Ninja H2 retails for $28,000), but if you’d like to register for purchase consideration, you can do so starting at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time on Monday, February 13. Orders will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are one of the lucky six to be notified by Kawasaki, you’ll have 48 hours to place a $10,000 deposit on your bike at a Kawasaki dealer. Registration details will be available at kawasaki.com.
A portion of the proceeds of the Ninja H2 Carbon sportbikes will go to charity, with Kawasaki donating $20,000 to the Road 2 Recovery Foundation. The non-profit was founded to help AMA-licensed supercross/motocross professionals with financial assistance should they suffer a career-ending injury, while also providing motivational, emotional, and spiritual support to those individuals and their families.
They should donate to Sea Shepherd ..
