kawasaki h2r

Kawasaki UK has officially opened their order books for the 2023 Kawasaki H2R, signalling the arrival of one of the most powerful production motorcycles from Team Green.

  • Kawasaki H2R is a track-only supercharged machine developed by Kawasaki next to the road-legal H2.
  • The H2R makes 326hp and claims a top speed of 380km/h. 

While further detail remains scarce but with more than 300hp, the H2R represents what every manufacturer can do when given the utmost freedom. 

Thanks to its supercharged four-cylinder engine that consumes 200 litres of air a second, Kawasaki claimed the H2R could hit a max speed of 380km/h. 

Nevertheless, we expect the 2023 model year to receive minor upgrades, considering the track-only H2R was already ahead of its time during its introduction in 2015.

The H2R is 20kg lighter than the stock (and road legal) H2 and features slick tyres and a full titanium exhaust. 

We expect the H2R to continue to feature top-notch track components, including Ohlins suspension, KYB shocks and Brembo brakes.

According to Kawasaki UK, interested parties can submit their order for the 2023 Kawasaki H2R with a recommended selling price of GBP50,000 (RM262k). 

Kita semua pernah alami situasi ini, lepak di kedai mamak lewat malam, pesan lima ais kosong dan satu roti petak – sebab kononnya kalau pesan roti canai mesti yang dipanaskan daripada minggu lepas.

Ketika sedang khusyuk ‘squad battle’ sementara kawan disebelah sibuk tumpang layan – disebabkan kuota internet dia dah habis – tiba-tiba si polan memulakan satu topik perbincangan.

“Kalau korang ada duit lah kan, motor apa yang korang nak beli?”

Saat itu, masing-masing mula membetulkan tempat duduk dalam percubaan membuat analisis paling terhebat abad ini.

Mokhtar membuka persidangan meja plastik dengan jentera pertama diikuti Soh, Santokh, Hassan dan Zainal.

  1. BMW HP4 Race kata Mokhtar

BMW Motorrad memperkenalkan HP4 Race sekitar tahun 2017 dengan harga sekitar RM520,000 sekaligus muncul antara motosikal paling mahal di pasaran tempatan dan dunia.

Dibina khas untuk kegunaan di litar sahaja (track legal), BMW mendakwa jentera ini merupakan model paling eksklusif pernah dihasilkan pengeluar Jerman itu dan menawarkan 215hp dan 121Nm. Menariknya, model ini hanya menggunakan RON98 ke atas.

  1. Aprilia RSV4 FW-GP kata Soh

Tak diperkenalkan untuk pasaran tempatan tetapi Aprilia RSV4 FW-GP ini ditawarkan pada harga USD83,000 (RM354,200). Menariknya, dengan setiap pembelian jentera 250hp ini, Aprilia menawarkan penghantaran ke rumah di samping beberapa ‘jajan’ lain antaranya, racing suit dan paddock pass ke MotoGP!

  1. ARCH KRGT-1 kata Santokh

Apakah persamaan di antara filem Speed, The Matrix dan John Wick? Ketiga-tiganya filem ikonik lakonan Keanu Reeves yang juga pemilik syarikat ARCH Motorcycles.

Menggunakan enjin V-Twin 2,032cc, KRGT-1 ditawarkan pada harga USD85,000 (RM354,200)! Menariknya, ARCH membina KRGT-1 mengikut spesifikasi pelanggan sendiri.

  1. Kawasaki H2R kata Hassan

Meskipun tidak semahal barisan jentera yang diutarakan Mokhtar, Soh dan Santokh namun H2R menawarkan kuasa yang sangat tinggi, sekitar 326hp.

Dibina khas untuk kegunaan litar, H2R dilengkapi dengan sistem six-speed dog ring MotoGP dan ECU perlumbaan dan ditawarkan pada harga USD55,000 (RM234,712).

  1. Ducati Panigale Superleggera V4 kata Zainal

Enggan mengalah, Zainal mencadangkan Panigale Superleggera V4 yang lahir di kilang Borgo Panigale.

Terhad kepada 500 unit seluruh dunia, Panigale Superleggera V4 ini mampu menghasilkan 224hp pada 15,250rpm dan 118Nm pada 11,750rpm.

Dibuka untuk jualan, jentera ini ditawarkan pada harga USD100,000 (RM414,000) model ini didatangkan dengan penyerap hentakan Ohlins dengan spring titanium, brek Brembo Stylema R dan merekodkan 1 minit 52.45saat di litar Mugello.

Kemudian selesai sudah sesi meja bulat lima sekawan dengan waktu menghampiri Subuh dengan masing-masing mula buka dompet untuk membuat bayaran sebelum Zainal buka mulut, “Tong-tong boleh? Tak cukup RM2 ni,”.

  • Keseronokan yang lebih mengujakan akan bakal dirasai dengan pelancaran motosikal Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX.
  • Kawasaki telah mengkaji semula pelbagai aspek motosikal berkenaan.
  • Motosikal H2 SX akan menjadi lebih praktikal untuk tunggangan harian dan kembara.


  • More excitement is inbound with the reveal of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX.

  • Kawasaki has revised many aspects of the bike.

  • The H2 SX will be more practical for everyday riding and touring.

When Kawasaki unveiled the supercharged Ninja H2R at 2014 Intermot show and the Ninja H2 a month later, they went straight into history as the world’s fastest production motorcycles. Love them or loathe them, the duo will hold a special place in everyone’s hearts many years from now, just like how we still revere the 1969 H1 Mach III, 1972 H2 Mach IV, 1972 Z1, 1984 GPz900R Ninja, among many other Kawasakis.

The track-only H2R was nothing if not shocking with an engine produced 300 bhp. The street-oriented H2 produced 197.6 bhp, on the other hand. Both bikes were wrapped in a bodywork whose styling has never been seen before. Designed by the Kawasaki Aerospace Company, every wedge on the bike was to create more downforce.

However, the H2R and H2 were true sportbikes, so touring or commuting on them meant that the rider had to suffer. Many had pondered if the H2 could be made more practical.

Well, your prayers have been answered when Kawasaki took the covers off the H2 SX at the 2017 EICMA show. Kawasaki now has a supercharged sport-tourer, like how John McLain now has a machine gun. Ho ho ho.

Here are 5 things we’re expecting from the Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX.

1. Revised Ergonomics

What is a sport-tourer if not for its accommodating ergonomics.

The H2 SX’s steel trellis frame is based on the H2, but has been strengthened and and lengthened. Along with a new passenger seat, they are thicker and wider. The handlebar has been raised higher for a more upright riding position.

While the styling is still unmistakable shouts H2, it’s now rounder, larger and has a taller windscreen.

Higher Load Capacity

Another benefit of the revised frame is the ability to carry a passenger and luggage. The H2 SX has been rated to carry 195.5 kg. The swingarm has been lengthened by 15mm for added stability, while the steering lock angle has been increased by a substantial 30 degrees on both sides to ease low-speed maneuverability.

Refined Engine

The H2R and H2’s manic engine has undergone some changes make it easier for both street riding and touring. The objective was to provide more low- and mid-range torque.

The supercharger’s impeller was completely redesigned, with new intake chamber, cams and exhaust. The engine’s thermal efficiency was also increased by upping the compression ratio to 11.2:1 from 8.5:1; along with new cast aluminium pistons, cylinders, and cylinder heads. Both intake and exhaust cam profiles were shortened for the requirements of street riding.

These changes still yield the exact same 197.6 bhp and 101 Nm of torque.

Further Range

Another important aspect for a sport-tourer is range, for you can’t expect to tour in a realistic manner if you have to stop for fuel every 200/250 kilometres.

The H2 SX now has a 19-litre fuel tank. The revisions to the engine’s character has resulted in a fuel mileage figure that matches the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 (Z1000SX) and Versys 1000.

New Electronics Package

The H2 SX will feature a new 2-mode LCD display.

Apart from that, it also utilizes electronic cruise control, all-LED lighting, 3-mode Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), Kawasaki Intelligent ABS (KIBS), engine brake control, three power modes, together with a 5-axis Bosch Inertia Measurement Unit (IMU) with an extra sixth-axis (yaw) calculated by Kawasaki’s own software developed in World Superbike.

The H2 SX SE adds full-colour LCD, LED cornering lights, a larger windscreen, Kawasaki Launch Control Mode which controls wheelie and wheel spin, quickshifter for both up- and downshifts, braided steel brake lines, heated grips and centrestand.

Both models are suspended by fully adjustable 43mm KYB forks and 40mm rear shock with revised Uni-Trak linkage.

Brakes are 320mm discs up front, squeezed by 4-piston calipers, although they aren’t Brembos.


We expect there’s a lot more than just specs when the H2 SX and H2 SX SE makes its appearance in Malaysia. Here’s to getting there quick so you’ve more time to enjoy your destination.

“Supercharge your journey,” as Kawasaki calls it.


  • Musim 2018 WorldSBK akan diperkemaskini dengan peraturan baru seperti membenarkan pasukan menggunakan ‘komponen aerodinamik’ pada motosikal perlumbaan mereka.
  • Namun ianya datang dengan syarat, iaitu sebarang komponen aerodinamik mestilah disediakan dahulu untuk motosikal yang telah dihomologasikan.
  • Dunia motosikal superbike pengeluaran pada tahun 2019 pasti akan menjadi lebih menarik sekiranya pasukan dalam siri WorldSBK mematuhi peraturan terbaru ini secara serius memandangkan betapa besarnya kelebihan ‘aerofairing’ ini terutamanya seperti yang boleh dilihat dalam MotoGP.


The WorldSBK 2018 season will be updated with new rules such as allowing teams to use ‘aerodynamic components’ on their race motorcycles.

There is a catch however as any of the aerodynamic components must first be made available to the homologated motorcycle.

The world of production superbikes in 2019 will be quite interesting if WorldSBK pick up this new ruling seriously considering how a big of an advantage ‘aerofairings’ can be especially seen in MotoGP.

The FIM World Superbike Championship has been introducing a lot of revolutionary changes and updates for 2018 to make the motorsport more exciting and appealing to fans around the world. Despite some setbacks laid out for some manufacturers such as limiting engine RPMs to make the field more evenly competitive, the Superbikes commission will now allow the use of ‘aerodynamic components’ come 2018.

Yes that’s right. Shell Advance Malaysia wants to give you free tickets to the Shell Hillstand to watch the race. All you have to do is buy a Shell Advance AX7 or Ultra and service your bike at the Ride Through Service! So if you do not have tickets, this is your chance.

3. Get ready to shop!

The Malaysian MotoGP is the best time to buy merchandise of your favourite team or racer. There will be plenty of Valentino Rossi merchandise on sale, and at great prices too. So bring your wallet, and make sure there is a load of cash in it.

4. Visit the HJC booth to check out a special helmet

Of course there are going to be other helmet brands there too, and you should visit them too, but HJC Helmets is known to make some amazing helmets and are among the most affordable in the market right now. The latest helmet models are a unique line that include a few Marvel superheroes. But the latest design is one that will grab the attention of cartoon lovers with a design from the Cars 3 cartoon series. Don’t miss out the intricate details of the new HJC helmet.

But it looks like it going really fast even while standing still. Marvel at this engineering masterpiece at the Kawasaki booth. Read more about this amazing machine here!

6. Check out the vast array of KTM bikes

Don’t let this team photo fool you, KTM makes motorcycles for track riders, adventurers and daily commuters.

KTM Motorcycles are becoming more and more popular now, and they are among a few manufacturers that have a complete range of motorcycles from dirt bikes to everyday commuters. There is a KTM motorcycle for everybody. And if you are a fan of the marque, there is also plenty of official merchandise to buy.

7. Stay hydrated with Red Bull

Over the years, the Red Bull marquee has built a reputation as the most happening booth during MotoGP thanks to its party like atmosphere. It is also the only booth during MotoGP that allows alcohol. So visit the Red Bull marquee, watch the race live, cool down with the air-conditioned tent. And if alcohol is not your thing, then simply load up on the Red Bull energy drink.

8. Take lots of selfies with the models

Where ever there are fast bikes there are bound to be plenty of beautiful women, and that is the case during MotoGP as well. There will be a long line of guys waiting to get a selfie with the gorgeous models, and they oblige with a smile. Just make sure your wife or girlfriend is not with you though.

9. Check out the new BMW bikes

BMW Motorrad Malaysia has a prominent booth just at the entrance to the grand stand area. And just like KTM, they have a complete range of motorcycles the fits almost all budgets. From the extremely loveable G310R, to the outrageous BMW HP4 Race that costs an astonishing RM520,900. Read about both the bikes here!

10. Win various goodies

A number of booths will be giving away free merchandise in return for something. Givi for example was giving away a very cool coin box after you like their Facebook page. We also know other stands are also doing the same, so keep a look out for all the free stuff on offer.

11. Watch the race!

This is a no-brainer. We are at the second last race of the season, and Spaniard Marc Marquez is leading the championship again. In second place is Andrea Dovizioso who still has a good chance of winning the championship provided something happens to Marquez, which is unlikely. There is definitely going to be good action to watch at the race. Also, our local boys Adam Norrodin, Hafizh Syahrin, Khairul Idham Pawi as well as wildcard rider Kasma Daniel Kasmayudin will all have plenty to prove at their home race. So whatever you do, no matter how many hot models there are to take photos with, or how many free goodies there are – do not miss the race!

See you there!

  • Kawasaki H2R dan H2 Elite Squad sedia memberi perkhidmatan buat pemilik motosikal H2 dan H2R premium.
  • Disediakan dengan pelancaran motosikal Ninja H2R dan Ninja H2.
  • Elite Squad ini bersedia untuk mengangkut motosikal Ninja H2R/H2 ke Pusat Perkhidmatan Eksklusif Kawasaki (Kawasaki Exclusive Service Centre – KESC) untuk mendapatkan perkhidmatan dari pakar.


  • Kawasaki H2R, H2 Elite Squad attends to the premium H2R and H2 owners

  • Set up with the launch of the Ninja H2R and Ninja H2

  • The Elite Squad transports the Ninja H2R/H2 to the Kawasaki Exclusive Service Centre for expert care and repair

By now, the Kawasaki Ninja H2R and Ninja H2 have established themselves as being the most powerful production motorcycles being sold to the general public.

But the Kawasaki H2R and its H2 sibling are not just about an extremely powerful supercharged engine stuffed into a frame. No, the H2 and H2R represents the pinnacle of mechanical engineering. Being so earns Kawasaki Heavy Industry’s (KHI) revered “River Mark” – the mark of excellence for innovations with historic significance. Kawasaki isn’t wrong when they are promoted as “Built Beyond Belief.”

As such, the track-only H2 and road-going H2R are premium products, hence the owners of the products expect premium service.

In this sense, Kawasaki Motors (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., KESB created the Kawasaki H2R and H2 Elite Squad. The Elite Squad was activated as soon as the first units of the Ninja H2R and Ninja H2 were handed over (click here for our coverage on the ceremony).

A H2R or H2 owner may call 03-5566 5662 to book an appointment. The Kawasaki H2R and H2 Elite Squad will then arrive at a location specified by the owner, pick up the bike and deliver it to the Kawasaki Exclusive Service Centre (KESC) for expert maintenance or repair.

The Elite Squad transports the H2R or H2 inside an enclosed van, to ensure safety and your privacy.

All KESCs are equipped with comprehensive equipment, including special tools and electronic diagnosis equipment that are unavailable at non-official workshops. Similarly, the personnel at KESC are specially trained to handle the maintenance and repair of the special H2R and H2. That in itself is great assurance that your H2R or H2 is well taken care of.

KESB quotes RM159.00 within the first 30km. However, if the owner requires a pick-up service only outside the 30km radius, an additional charge of RM1.38/km is levied; while for pick-up and return service, an additional RM1.17/km is charged.
