Reportedly making 300hp in race trim only form (H2R) it's like a deathwish. I wonder how much power the H2 will make, 240 maybe?

Update!

KAWASAKI NINJA H2R MAKES 300 HORSEPOWER
http://www.revzilla.com/common-tread/kawasaki-ninja-h2-and-h2r
It's official! The Kawasaki Ninja H2R makes 300 horsepower. Holy. Crap.

The Kawasaki Ninja H2R will be powered by a 998 cc supercharged inline-four that Kawasaki says will produce "roughly" 300 horsepower. I still can't believe I just typed that sentence.

Everything else you've read and seen is true. It has a centrifugal supercharger. It has a steel-tube trellis frame. That power will be connected to the road with tires and not wings. Though I feel sorry for the rear tire. Since it's not street-legal, the H2R rolls out of the factory on slicks.

At this point, there isn't much we can say that hasn't already been said or that isn't obvious. The purpose of the bike was to design a "halo product," that would catapult the Kawasaki name back to the top of the charts. They're well aware that this thing doesn't fit into a race class and that it can only be used on a track. Though "used" is a word loaded with meaning when this kind of horsepower is involved.

The bad news is that it looks like we have to wait until EICMA next month to see the H2, which we expect to be the road version, which is expected to be tuned to produce less power.

Just imagine, 1100 lbs and 300 hp. Most people would kill themselves in a car with those specs, let alone a bike.
