Ninja H2R Vehicle Information


The Ninja H2R is a closed course riding use only model and is not manufactured for use on public roads, streets or highways. All usage of this vehicle should be limited to riding on a closed course.


Parts designed specifically for the H2R are for closed course riding use only and cannot be purchased without proof of H2R ownership (product registration, VIN confirmation, etc.).

Exhaust Sound

The exhaust sound level of the H2R at the time of factory shipment is 120 dB/A using Auto Cycle Union (ACU) guidelines. It is the owner’s responsibility to confirm that noise regulations of closed courses permit vehicles reaching this level of exhaust sound. Changes to the exhaust system may alter performance and sound level.

Usage, Maintenance and Warranty

As a closed course riding use only model, specific procedures must be followed when riding and maintaining the H2R:

  • Vehicle Tires:

    Do not replace the tyres on the H2R with any other brand and model than those offered as standard equipment:
    Front: Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V01F Soft
    Rear: Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V01R Medium
    Kawasaki does not approve Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V02F &V02R tyres for H2R usage.
  • Tire Warmers:

    To prevent loss of tire grip, always use tire warmers to heat tyres prior to riding the H2R. Cold tyres do not provide sufficient grip and may cause loss of vehicle control and/or a crash which could result in injury or death.
  • Vehicle Storage:

    When storing the H2R, always use front and rear motorcycle stands that keep both tyres off the ground. This will prevent tire deformation and adverse impacts on performance.
  • Vehicle Maintenance:

    In addition to regular periodic maintenance, service inspections are required every 15 hours of engine operation above 8,000r/min (rpm). These service intervals are monitored through the vehicle’s ECU with service messages displayed on the multifunction meter. (See Owner’s Manual for additional information)
  • Vehicle Warranty:

    The H2R is sold "As is" with no warranties, express or implied. The purchaser accepts all responsibilities concerning cost of service, maintenance and repairs.
