Kawasaki Puts A 998cc Supercharged Engine In The Sporty Z H2 Naked Bike

Oct 24, 2019

For many years, Kawasaki’s lauded moto lineup has blurred the line between intuitive use and insanity; most notably, in its sports/superbike offerings. For 2020, the manufacturer has decided to err on the side of enhanced capability by introducing one of its strongest contenders to date — the Z H2.

At a glance, the 2020 Kawasaki Z H2 is a great-looking sports bike that embodies all of the brand’s most prolific traits. It’s been outfitted with a performance-oriented trellis frame that’s been specifically designed for lightweight implementation, alongside the company’s revered IMU electronics package, dog-ring transmission, and hefty Showa suspension components to give it an edge on, and off the track. While the bike’s shadowy exterior and capable intricacies are a welcome addition to the company’s Z lineup, it’s the H2’s powerplant that steals the show. Housed within the cycle’s framework, you’ll find less-than-subtle 998cc supercharged engine that places an emphasis on balanced power, control, and acceleration, making the sleek, but savage Z an attractive platform for those who seek to take their skills to the blacktop. The Kawasaki Z H2 is slated for release in the coming months and will retail for $17,000.
