Kawasaki is again making headlines with its new rumor products Ninja R2 And S2 which are supercharged like H2. Kawasaki Ninja H2 and H2R had a new supercharger technology which increased the power and helped them more in the marketing of bike. Now it looks like the attempt to implement a supercharger in engine does not stop with the H2 or H2R. Kawasaki is researching in making two other supercharger variants Kawasaki R2 and S2. These bikes will be the cheapest supercharged bikes from the company.
Ninja S2 will be a supercharged bike with 650cc parallel twin engine. It will be a supercharged child born from the combination of two other projects Kawasaki Ninja ER6F (650cc 2 cylinder) and Kawasaki H2. Why is Kawasaki developing a new 650cc machine as they already have a 650cc bike in their portfolio? Yeah we know the current 650r is a tourer only but still there is another reason for this new project. It has developed because the Suzuki is launching a turbocharged bike ‘Suzuki Recursion’ which has a 588 cc parallel twin engine! It produces a 100 horsepower at 8,000 rpm. This made Kawasaki to manufacture a supercharged 650cc bike Ninja S2.
Now what will be the another rumored model Kawasaki Ninja R2? It is just a lowest version of Kawasaki H2 and H2R. Yamaha has 3 variants for YZF R1 – R1, R1s and R1M. R1S is a street oriented version while R1M and R1 are track-ready superbikes. R1M is a special version of the R1 with higher factory specification. Ninja H2 will compete with the Yamaha R1 and H2R with the R1M. And for competing with the R1S, Kawasaki is launching their new street variant Ninja R2. R2 will be more efficient among the three model.
Customers don’t need to wait much long for these bikes. Most likely both these models will appear at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show (TMS), which takes place on 28 October to 8 November 2015. Price and other specs are not yet revealed. For more updates on these bikes, subscribe us below.
