In this video uploaded back in 2018, popular motorcycle YouTuber Do It With Dan gave everyone a personal look at what it’s like to take a Kawasaki H2 all the way to 200 MPH! His GoPro shows an awesome POV angle, making it seem like you’re the one piloting this insane supersport motorcycle.
The high-speed run takes place around the seven-minute mark of the video, and Dan explains just how scary it is to go that fast. It’s kind of a do-it-just-to-say-you-did-it kind of thing. I definitely wouldn’t recommend riding at these speeds very often. It’s extremely dangerous and things can turn deadly in a split second.
Nevertheless, it’s cool to see someone push this thing to show off its capabilities. Below, you’ll see what makes this wicked bike capable of hypersport speeds.
Kawasaki Ninja H2 Specs
Let me just start off by saying the Ninja H2 is one of the craziest street-legal bikes you can purchase. Its supercharged engine will make you hold on to those handlebars for dear life.
This superbike is held together by a high-tensile steel, trellis frame, with a swingarm mounting plate. The seat height is 32.5 inches, wheelbase is 57.3 inches, and it has 5.1 inches of ground clearance. The overall weight is right around 525 pounds. It has a larger fuel tank than most bikes, giving it a fuel capacity of 4.5 gallons.
For the engine, it features a 998cc, inline-4, DOHC, 4 valve, and, of course, comes with a supercharger to give you more power than you’ll ever need on a street bike. The compression ratio for the engine is 8.5:1. It includes dual fuel injection (DFI) and four 50mm dual injection throttle bodies. As for the transmission, it’s a 6-speed dog ring gearbox, with a sealed chain as the final drive.
Moving on to suspension and brakes, the front suspension is made up 43mm inverted fork with adjustable rebound and compression damping, spring preload adjustability, and top out springs. For the rear suspension, it consists of a Uni-Trak, Öhlins TTX36 gas charged shock with a piggyback reservoir. This suspension setup is guaranteed to be capable of some pretty fast cornering speeds. You should also have no issues with braking because the front brakes are dual radial-mount, opposed Brembo Stylema 4 piston calipers, with dual semi-floating disks. Rear brakes have a 2 piston caliper with a single disk.
This bike isn’t high priced for nothing. It’s also decked out with all kinds of electronic rider aid. Take a look below to see the list of additional equipment.
- Kawasaki traction control (KTRC)
- Kawasaki launch control mode (KLCM)
- Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-Lock Brake System (KIBS)
- Kawasaki Engine Brake Control
- Kawasaki Quick Shifter for upshift and downshift (KQS)
- Öhlins Electronic Steering Damper
- Smartphone Connectivity through OEM app
- LED lighting
Is that enough to scare you? This bike is extremely over the top, and most of its riders will likely never actually top this thing out. But, there’s something cool about having that power when you need it. It’s starting price is right around $29,000, but you’ll get a truly decked-out bike in return. If you’re looking for a true high-speed thrill, this might be the perfect bike for you.
