Long-time motorcycle enthusiast, Ian Heather, was fortunate enough to be present during the un-crating and preparation of his anticipated H2R.
Ian has only owned 2 brand new motorcycles and he says that nothing has really grasped him until now. “I feel really fortunate and lucky that the circumstances allowed for my purchase to be the first H2R in Australia. I have been waiting a long time for something really interesting to come along and this bike certainly meets that criteria”, commented Ian.
Powering the Ninja H2R is a supercharged engine with an output exceeding 300 PS. This revolutionary package comes in a compact overall design on par with power units found in supersport litre-class models.
The H2R’s supercharger is a motorcycle-specific unit designed by Kawasaki completely in-house with technology developed from the Gas Turbine & Machinery, Aerospace and Corporate Technology Divisions.
Ian isn’t planning to take his supercharged H2R to the track but he says that he would love ‘put it to the task’, at the Western Sydney International Dragway.
