When Kawasaki first released the Ninja H2 in 2015, the supercharged production model was nothing short of a sensation. With more than 200 street-legal horses on tap, aerodynamic winglets, and a state-of-the-art suite of electronics, the H2 was unlike anything that had come before it; a forced-induction, liter-sized superbike for the modern era.

The H2 represented the pinnacle of Kawasaki’s superbike technology, with Team Green digging deep for each and every element and aspect of its two-wheeled wonder. On top of a highly sophisticated powertrain and chassis, the H2 sported equally refined bodywork with its sharp, fighter-jet-inspired fairings and spoilers.

At the heart of Team Green’s carbon-clad beast was a supercharged, liquid-cooled, 998cc, DOHC, 16V, inline-four mated to a six-speed transmission with a slipper clutch. Wrapped in a steel tubular trellis frame adorned in Kawasaki’s signature lime-green hue, the Japanese four-banger generated an absurd 207 hp at 11,000rpm (at speed with ram air, 200 hp without), and 98.5 ft-lbs of torque at 10,500rpm.

All that powered was kept in check via a full electronics suite including Kawasaki traction control (KTRC), launch control (KLCM), Kawasaki engine brake control (KEBC), anti-locking brakes (KIBS), and a bidirectional factory quick-shifter (KQS). The H2 also benefited from top-of-the-line running gear, with imperfections in the tarmac being absorbed by a 43mm KYB ASO-II fork up front and a Uni-Trak mono-shock outback linked to a single-sided swing-arm. Fully adjustable, the H2’s suspenders were supplemented by an Ohlins electronic steering damper.

Draped in angular bodywork with aerodynamic, down-force-generating winglets, the mighty H2 – which tipped the scales at just under 525 lbs wet — was capable of top speeds exceeding 200 mph right out of the box. Slowing the exotic supercharged superbike from its hair-raising top speed were dual 330mm rotors bit by four-pot Brembo monobloc calipers, aided by a single 250mm pinched by a dual-piston unit out back.

The seller of this example (VIN: JKAZXCN16FA000457, Engine #: ZXT00NE000438) acquired it on our auction site last year.

The odometer shows 3,959 miles.

It is equipped with some serious upgrades, starting with Blackstone Tek seven-arm carbon fiber wheels.

It also has a full Akrapovic titanium exhaust system with a carbon fiber can. The new pipe is paired with a flashed ECU (performed by Brock’s).

Before we sold it to the current owner, Adam took the H2 out for a couple of Sunday rides and it converted him into a believer. “At first it was a bit much….now, I’m in love with the Battlestar Galactica looking warbird.”

The upgraded wheels and exhaust shave nearly over 40 pounds, putting this road-legal Ninja closer to its track-only H2R sibling in terms of weight. Adult-owned, never raced, and always babied, the sale of this H2 also includes a commemorative box from Kawasaki that includes the owners and shop manuals, coffee table book on the history of the illustrious H2, and keychain.

The stock exhaust and wheels are included in the sale.

The current owner had a lowside when he got onto a highway onramp and fed in some throttle on a painted line. He lost the back end and the bike went down on the left side. We were unable to source the OEM “mirror-coated black” left fairing, so the seller opted to with carbon fiber fairings for both sides.

The seller had us paint the sides of the tail section to better match the carbon fiber as well.

We also replaced the bar ends, clutch lever, flywheel cover, and side stand. While the bike was with us, he had us also perform an oil/filter change, replace the air filter, and detail the bike.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California, this H2 is offered on a clean California title with registration current through April 2021.

It’s been over five years since Kawasaki debuted supercharging on a production motorcycle with the H2, and no manufacturer has matched them as of yet. Have any H2 stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments!
