INSANE IN THE MEMBRAIN.

2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2R:

The launching point for the development of the Ninja H2R was a strong desire to offer riders something they had never before experienced. The bike needed to deliver intense acceleration and an ultra-high top speed, coupled with supersport-level circuit performance. The H2R has fully encapsulated what it is like to ride a Kawasaki Ninja.

The 2019 Ninja H2 and H2 Carbon have done it again with another leap forward in power and technology. The 998cc Supercharged engine now puts out even more power, the next generation Brembo Stylema calipers produce unbelievable stopping power, and a full TFT dashboard with Bluetooth connectivity ensures you are connected in ways you never thought possible. It even has highly durable paint that heals itself from minor scratches in the sun. Adding these to an already awe-striking package, it’s no wonder that the H2 is Built Beyond Belief.

Vehicle

The Ninja H2R is a closed course riding use only model and is not manufactured for use on public roads, streets or highways. All usage of this vehicle should be limited to riding on a closed course.

Parts

Parts designed specifically for the Ninja H2R are for closed course riding use only and cannot be purchased without proof of H2R ownership (product registration, VIN confirmation, etc.).

Exhaust Sound

The exhaust sound level of the Ninja H2R at the time of factory shipment is 120 dB/A using Auto Cycle Union (ACU) guidelines. It is the owner’s responsibility to confirm that noise regulations of closed courses permit vehicles reaching this level of exhaust sound. Changes to the exhaust system may alter performance and sound level.

Usage, Maintenance and Warranty

As a closed course riding use only model, specific procedures must be followed when riding and maintaining the Ninja H2R:

Vehicle Tires:
Do not replace the tires on the Ninja H2R with any other brand and model than those offered as standard equipment:

Front: Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V01F Soft
Rear: Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V01R Medium

Kawasaki does not approve Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V02F & V02R tires for Ninja H2R usage.

Tire Warmers:
To prevent loss of tire grip, always use tire warmers to heat tires prior to riding the Ninja H2R. Cold tires do not provide sufficient grip and may cause loss of vehicle control and/or a crash which could result in injury or death.

Vehicle Storage:
When storing the Ninja H2R, always use front and rear motorcycle stands that keep both tires off the ground. This will prevent tire deformation and adverse impacts on performance.

Vehicle Maintenance:
In addition to regular periodic maintenance, service inspections are required every 15 hours of engine operation above 8,000r/min (rpm). These service intervals are monitored through the vehicle’s ECU with service messages displayed on the multifunction meter. (See Owner’s Manual for additional information)

Vehicle Warranty:
The Ninja H2R is sold “As is” with no warranties, express or implied. The purchaser accepts all responsibilities concerning cost of service, maintenance and repairs.

2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

NEW More Powerful Engine

With the significant improvements, the supercharged acceleration of the Ninja H2 is more exhilarating than ever. The new engine performance does not affect fuel efficiency as consumption and range stay on par with previous models thanks to feedback from the Ninja H2™` SX motorcycle’s “balanced supercharged” engine. Key components to the increase in power include a new air filter, intake chamber and spark plugs.

 

NEW Brembo Stylema® Calipers

New for 2019 the Ninja H2, Ninja H2 Carbon and Ninja H2R hypersport motorcycles are equipped with high-grade Brembo Stylema front calipers. The dual radial mount, opposed 4-piston Stylema calipers gripping semi-floating 330mm discs are equipped with KIBS ABS to complement the technical innovation and premium quality of the Ninja H2, Ninja H2 Carbon and Ninja H2R.

 

NEW Bridgestone Battlax RS11 Sport Tires

Technical innovations continue on the Ninja H2 and Ninja H2 Carbon as they come equipped with all-new Bridgestone Battlax RS11 sport tires (12/70-17 front, 200/55-17 rear) that contribute to improved handling.

 

NEW TFT Color Instrumentation

Contributing to the Ninja H2 flagship-level of quality is the advanced, high-tech design of the instrumentation featuring an analogue-style tachometer complemented by a high-grade full-color TFT LCD screen that enables information to be displayed graphically. Four selectable display modes allow riders to prioritize the information they want to see depending on the kind of riding they are doing at the time.

The high-grade full-color display features TFT technology to ensure a level of visibility. The screen’s background color (black or white) is selectable at the touch of a button, and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light. In addition to scrollable multi-function windows, four display modes offer riders a choice of how they want their information presented. Simple handle control switches put all mode selection and display options at the rider’s fingertips.

In addition to a digital speedometer and gear position indicator, display functions include: odometer, dual trip meters, current mileage, average mileage, fuel consumption, bank angle display and max bank angle recording function, coolant temperature, boost indicator, boost (intake air chamber) temperature, clock, and Economical Riding Indicator.

 

NEW Smartphone Connectivity

As Kawasaki continues along a path of innovation, the 2019 Ninja H2 model comes another first: Smartphone Connectivity to the motorcycle. A chip built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using a smartphone application, a number of instrument functions can be accessed, logged, and reviewed contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience. The information below can be viewed on the connected smartphone through the proprietary app:

  • Vehicle information including fuel level, odometer, trip meter, maintenance schedule, battery condition, etc.
  • Riding record including GPS route information, speed, rpm, gear position, fuel mileage and more
  • Telephone notices: when a call, text or mail is received by the smartphone, this is indicated on the vehicle’s instrument display
  • Vehicle settings: general instrument display settings (such as power or riding modes and ride support aids, such as Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS,) can be adjusted via the smartphone as well as by manual switch

The app can also be used when away from the motorcycle. When riding (with the app ON), the bike and smartphone are always connected. Once the engine is turned off, or the smartphone is out of range of the instrument’s chip, the latest riding information is stored by the app and may be viewed on the smartphone. Any changes made via the app while the engine is off, or while out of range, will be implemented as soon as the ignition is turned on and the smartphone is in range with the app ON.

 

NEW All-LED Lighting

The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja H2 and Ninja H2 Carbon feature new LED turn signals and an LED license plate lamp, meaning all lighting equipment (headlamp, position lamps, taillight, turn signals, and license plate lamp) are now brighter and more efficient LED technology.

 

Styling

A new “Supercharged” emblem emphasizes the increase in performance offered by the supercharged engine of the Ninja H2. Red color accents express the uniqueness of this high performance engine, while graphics depicting high-velocity intake air being spun around convey a sense of speed. Also new for 2019 are wheel pinstripes, which help to convey a high-class image.

 

NEW Highly Durable Paint

Also new is Kawasaki’s Highly Durable Paint (used on all non-carbon bodywork parts). The new paint features a special top coat that allows certain types of scratches to repair themselves, enabling the paint to maintain its high quality finish through normal wear and tear. The self-healing is achieved through microscopic soft and hard segments within the top coat working like a chemical spring, creating a trampoline effect that absorbs many impacts.

Notes:
1. In some cases, it takes more than one week for recovery.
2. The paint will not recover in the case of scratches caused by a coin or key, or zip fasteners.

 

KAWASAKI NINJA H2™R

The Kawasaki Ninja H2™R hypersport motorcycle once again returns as a class leader and one of the most sought-after motorcycles on the planet. New for 2019 is the addition of the Brembo Stylema® front calipers, a redesigned supercharged emblem, and Kawasaki’s Highly Durable Paint.
