Let’s face it, the Kawasaki Ninja H2 isn’t for everyone. Even if you have the riding skills, the price tag makes it difficult to buy one. So if you’re someone who aspires to buy the H2 but do not have that kind of money, let us introduce you to the “h2”. The h2 (yes, with a small “h”) is near perfect replica of the Kawasaki H2 and is available for a small fraction of the price of the 200 HP supercharged motorcycle.

The company responsible for the h2 is called Pleasure MC who are specialists in creating molds to visually transform motorcycles. The h2 is based on Kawasaki’s smallest Z series motorcycle, the Z125 Pro. Although smaller in size, the body kit has been neatly designed to replicate the superbike. The fascia, rear-view mirrors, fairing, fuel tank, saddle, rear panel and the exhaust design are remarkably crafted to make the humble 125cc stand apart from the standard model. A trellis-frame graphic on the standard chassis makes it even more identical to the 200hp masterpiece from the Japanese manufacturer. The attention to detail is truly remarkable.

You’d trade a whole lot of power as the 125cc single cylinder, SOHC 2 Valve, air cooled engine with fuel injection puts out 9.5 PS. The H2, on the other hand, uses a 4 cylinder, liquid cooled 998cc supercharged motor that produces a power output of 210 PS while the peak torque is rated at 133.5 Nm.

Will you choose the h2 over the H2? Let us know your views through the comments section below.

The craziest bikes Kawasaki has ever built are now entering the 2018 model year. Starting September 1st and going through November 30th (or until supply runs out), you can order your very own 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 or H2 Carbon street bike or the bonkers track-only H2R.

For those unaware of the insanity of the Kawasaki H2, it’s the first four-stroke, supercharged motorcycle from a major bike manufacturer. Basically, the H2 is the Hellcat and the H2R is the Demon of the motorcycle world. The H2 Carbon is a version of the street-legal H2 with—you guessed it—more carbon fiberalong with special paint. Kawasaki accurately markets these rockets as being “Built Beyond Belief.”

They all share a 998cc DOHC liquid-cooled inline-four engine with four valves per cylinder. The star of the show is the variable-speed centrifugal supercharger. The H2R cranks out 310 horsepower or 326 hp when equipped with ram air. The street-legal H2 makes significantly less power (but still a lot) at 200 hp or 210 hp with ram air. The H2R produces 115 lb-ft of torque while the regular H2 makes 98.5 lb-ft of twist.

To keep all of that power and torque planted to the pavement, it comes with a host of nannies like corner management function, traction control, launch control, ABS, and an electronic steering damper, all of which make it harder to kill yourself while riding this monster.

There aren’t any major differences in the new models over the 2017 bikes. These are notoriously rare motorcycles, so we don’t expect ordering to be available all the way through the November 30th deadline. The MSRP for the standard H2 is $28,000 and $31,000 for the H2 Carbon while a new H2R will set you back $55,000. Those are high prices by motorcycle standards, but considering their supercar-like performance on two wheels, the H2 is a bargain.

Every time we post about the H2, people get confused and think we’re talking about the H2R which is a totally different animal. The ‘R’ has 320bhp and weighs less than the standard H2 which has 200bhp.

So that means the standard bike’s a real slouch then? Well, as this videos demonstrates, it can still beat a Bugatti Veyron, even with the Kawasaki rider short shifting big time.

The Kawasaki KX 500 is a 499 cc (30.5 cu in) two-stroke single motocross motorcycle made by Kawasaki from 1983 until 2004, But now there has been rumours of a brand new 2018/2019 KX500 coming back from the past!

The Kawasaki KX500 was developed as an air-cooled 500cc motocross bike for competition in the 500cc and Open-Class of motocross. At the time of its release, several top manufactured sported entries in this class, including Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and the class-leading Maico.

Kawasaki developed the bike on an annual basis through the 80’s. The addition of liquid cooling in 1985, a new frame with improved suspension in 1987, engine updates in 1988 and reversed forks in 1990 highlight these revisions.

Kawasaki would take several years to produce a competitive bike, and when it finally did, would find the KX500 winning in events for which it was not initially designed for. Its first victories came in 1986, when Donnie Griewe won two National Hare and Hound events. These only foreshadowed Kawasaki’s dominance in distance and desert racing that exploded in the 90’s.

In 1989 Kawasaki captures its first National MX championship on a KX500, repeating in ’90 and ’92 before the series was discontinued at the close of the ’93 season. But that would not be the end of the KX500’s racing legacy.

Beginning in 1992, the KX500 took the victory in every Desert Nationals race through 1995, and continued to win the Desert Nationals Championship every year though 2001. It further cemented its legendary dominance in desert racing by being the victors bike at the Baja 1000 from 1988 through 1996.

The KX was stopped in 2004, the new 2018 specifications will be available soon!
