Kawasaki blew minds and went on to set records when it released the supercharged 200-horsepower Ninja H2 and 300-horsepower, racetrack-and-experts-only Ninja H2R in 2015. From its 998cc in-line four-cylinder engine force-fed by a 130,000rpm supercharger to its trellis frame, downforce-generating bodywork, Mirror Coated Black paint and Kawasaki River Mark insignia, the Ninja H2 was and continues to be a very special motorcycle.
