Thumbs up

Slipper clutch or supercharger wastegate sounds? Supercharged 750 or 600? 4-cylinder engine sounds pretty wild, and the blower quite seamless.

Whatever.

Just another bike that you can't enjoy if you have a job that requires you to keep a clean driving record.

Agree 100%, have ridden both zx10 and zx 14 and understand that a 300kph bike means I will not have my licence long.

Yep, the displacement question can be confusing. The first link indicates "The Ninja H2 name is an homage to the original 1972 750cc Kawasaki Mach IV H2, but Kawasaki also references the 500cc H1 Mach III and 903cc Z1 Super Four as influences."

And maybe it will be none of these - sneaky Japanese.

Wonder how many of these will end up in the weeds before the owner has the machine a week?

"Kawasaki says that the H2 will be the company’s flagship machine. Like the H2 of the past, we’re expecting a displacement around 750cc, which could mean that Kawasaki has based its supercharged engine design off the ZX-6R, as was the case when the company teased the engine last year (show above), or off the Ninja ZX-10R."

I for one will never be able to own one, but it'll make for some good youtube videos when the squids fire up their gopros.

I, personally, lack interest in owning a Ninja entirely. That said- I'm stoked as I think it'll open up more versions of our Versys!!
