What is Bugatti Chiron for four wheelers, Kawasaki Ninja H2R for two wheelers: dream machine. Known for beating supercars like the Bugatti Veyron and McLaren MP4 in a half mile drag race, the flagship motorcycle produces a whopping 300 hp and can reach record speeds in a matter of seconds. Here are some of the facts about this bike:
World’s fastest motorcycle made to date
Kawasaki Ninja H2R is synonymous with unstoppable power and fiery speed. This H2R has a 998cc 4 – stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled, supercharged engine which delivers 310bhp of power and 165 Nm of torque. Interestingly, in 2016, in a record attempt, the Superbike reached the 400 kmph speed mark, making it the fastest production motorcycle in the world. And it took just 26 seconds to achieve this feat.
Kawasaki Ninja H2R comes with a self-healing paint
This Kawasaki Ninja H2R is featuring a ‘highly durable’ mirror coated matte spark black paint which is said to have some self-repairing features to it. The paint is said to contain a mixture of hard and soft particles, which automatically heal small scratches.
One of the best power-to-weight ratios on a vehicle
The aerodynamically designed Kawasaki Ninja uses H2R carbon fiber fit and steel trellis frame, which reduces the weight by about 238 kg. This weight alone provides a power and weight ratio of 1,145 hp per ton for a motorcycle. By comparison, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport handles only 644 hp per ton.
Kawasaki Ninja H2R is illegal on the roads
Although the Kawasaki Ninja H2R is a production vehicle, it is illegal on the roads. The motorcycle track is intended for use or for special events with appropriate legal clearance.
Due to the lack of important components such as headlights, tail lights and mirrors, your local transportation office will not certify with a license plate.
No free service or warranty despite the astronomical price tag
Whether you buy a great Audi or a basic one like a smartphone, you get some free service and warranty. However with Ninja H2R you will not get warranty or free service. Engine and basic parts also fall under the category outside the warranty.
