Kawasaki H2R – Electronics that control the Beast: Video!
Snapshot: 300 BHP is a lot of power and when this power is generated in an engine that is supposed to power a motorcycle, things get a way more serious
300 BHP is a lot of power and when this power is generated in an engine that is supposed to power a motorcycle, things get a way more serious. The Kawasaki H2R is one outstanding motorcycle, it has re-written the rules of the game with its, track only version produces a staggering 296 bhp. That is Moto GP territory, and it might just be more powerful than most the Moto GP bikes on the paddock too.
Thus, this does not come as a surprise that in order to bring this insane power to a level, where a mere mortal can ride it (mere mortal here means someone way more talented and brave to even consider taking it on track and then opening the throttle of this beast, not common stuff this, let us tell you), the H2R comes with all the possible electronic aids there could possibly be.
This 300hp supercharged machine needs some snappy electronics to keep all that power in line. Kawasaki understands that we think like this, so, they have come out with a new video to demonstrate the electronic aids that are available on the H2R.
The video essentially confirms that the Kawasaki Ninja H2R, and presumably the Kawasaki Ninja H2 street bike, will come with anti-locking brakes (KIBS), traction control (KTRC), launch control (KLCM), quick shifter (KQS), engine braking control (KEBC), and an electronic steering damper (ESD).
