The Kawasaki H2 clearly needed to emancipate itself, to assert more sportiness, to gain in demonstration. With an engine pushed to more than 240 horsepower in dynamic (231 in static), this Ninja hunts on lands of disproportion. For the greatest jubilation of fans of Dantesque machines.
The H2 Carbon, which takes most of its sister, logically grants the same evolutions. Before we review them again, let’s review what sets this special series apart. To deserve its name, it benefits from a carbon fiber fork crown – a luxurious piece, reminiscent of the full trim of the same material that can be found on the H2R. No weight gain announced for the machine, the scale remaining at 238 kilos.
2019 was the occasion for a judicious technological transfer between the H2 and the H2 SX. The recent mechanical optimizations devoted to the Sport-GT come to boost the super-sportswoman in many ways. Air filter, intake chamber, spark plugs and ECU reworked allow the jump in power (+ 16%) and a reduction in consumption.
Under the eyes, it was no longer possible to pilot the machine with the dashboard from the beginning … while the H2 SX makes fun of a more successful handset with TFT window in color.
“So what do we do ?” said the Kawa to each other.
“Well, I” prick it. But I “add Bluetooth to be able to display certain information on a smartphone”.
Another specificity of the H2 mkII, a self-healing paint with the ability to “repair” small scratches, the latest generation of Brembo brake calipers (M50 Stylema) and a set of Bridgestone RS11 tires. All this to enjoy even more an unclassifiable and striking sports car. The only one with a compressor, a guarantee of pure sensations when it starts to turbinate.
