For 2017, the standard model Ninja H2 is joined by a high-grade model for discerning customers looking for something extra special. Called the Ninja H2 CARBON, it will be a limited edition model featuring a carbon-fibre upper cowl similar to that of the Ninja H2R, special paint and a serial number plate. Only 120 units will be produced.

SPECIAL FEATURES

Carbon-fibre Upper Cowl

Constructed in highly rigid, lightweight CFRP (carbon-fibre reinforced polymer), the upper cowl instantly distinguishes the Ninja H2 CARBON from the standard Ninja H2. Creating an image similar to that of the Ninja H2R, the carbon-fibre piece contributes to enhanced presence.

Special Paint

Further distinguishing the Ninja H2 CARBON is a new variation of Kawasaki’s silver-mirror paint featuring a matte element. The new paint is the same used on the closed-course Ninja H2R. And like the Ninja H2R, the frame on the Ninja H2 CARBON is finished in green.

Serial Number Plate

As one of only 120 units, each Ninja H2 CARBON model is individually numbered and features a serial number stamped into the supercharger plate on the right side of the engine.
