It has been a year now since Kawasaki strung us along with what seemed like endless teaser videos for its Ninja H2 and Ninja H2R superbikes. Let’s revisit what made them so popular. Boasting 998cc from its inline-Four, the H2 brethren represents Kawasaki’s flagship motorcycle. Let’s not forget the supercharger attached to both models, giving them a healthy amount of torque without the need for an intercooler. The trellis frame, Brembo M50 brakes, and traction control, among other things, helped the H2 line handle about as well as it accelerated.

For 2016, though, Kawasaki announced it would be adding an assist and slipper clutch to both H2 machines. Kawi says the assisted clutch will make lever pressure 40% lighter, which will help reduce rider fatigue on longer rides. The slipper function will help to avoid rear wheel hop during rapid downshifts.

Kawasaki also announced it would be offering another order period for customers not able to purchase an H2 or H2R during the first round of orders earlier this year.

Both motorcycles are now available in Mirror Coated Spark Black which is a revised silver-mirror paint that includes glass flakes in the first clear coat to catch the light.

Pricing for the 2016 H2 is $26,000, while the 2016 H2R is $53,000.

I just don't see it at this point. It only puts out the same hp numbers as the 2015 zx10r. Now torque is different and is the big difference but the 2016zx10r should have a little
More hp. And will be almost 10,000 usd less. So with a few upgrades for about 1500.00 usd you'll be well above the hp numbers Plus the color scheme makes it more Like a color You can already get. The other prior color was very unique and no one has offered anything like it before Kinda sad. I was
Going to get h2 but no dealers here would sell for less than 30,000 and Msrp was
25,000. So I wasn't buying it for that
