Hydraulic Clutch & Back-torque Limiter

Hydraulic Clutch & Back-torque Limiter

A high-quality hydraulic clutch offers less maintenance, ensuring the initial touch condition can be maintained. And with Brembo components, superb linearity and smooth actuation are also benefits.

Öhlins Electronic Steering Damper

Öhlins Electronic Steering Damper

At low speeds, the settings were chosen such that damping does not interfere with the bike’s intrinsic lightweight handling. At high speeds, damping increases to provide enhanced stability.

Kawasaki River Mark

Kawasaki River Mark

Special permission was obtained to use the River Mark on the Ninja H2. Usually, its use on a product is reserved for models of historical significance.

Brakes

Maximising Airflow Efficiency

Maximising Airflow Efficiency

All engines need to breathe. In addition to ensuring the engine has sufficient air, how the air is supplied is another concern. 

Dog-ring Transmission

Dog-ring Transmission

To facilitate smooth, quick shifting, a dog-ring type transmission was selected. This is the kind of transmission commonly found in MotoGP or Formula 1, and was developed with feedback from the Kawasaki Racing Team.

Lighting Equipment
