Kawasaki about to launch SUPER-CHARGED" inline-4 later this month.

Called Ninja H2. Here's a link:
http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-...nth/25467.html
I wonder if it's going to replace ZX10R or Ninja 1000? Probably the later IMO... I've heard somewhere that torque will be upward of 100ft-lbs at roughly 4,500rpm. Sweet! That would be close to a HD Twin Cam 103... HP? I don't know and I honestly don't care either... Although must be in the neighbourhood of 140 ATLEAST...

I can't really see them replacing the N1K...they just did a significant update for 2014, and it's been selling like hotcakes.

Maybe a halo model slotted above the ZX14?

I don't know why everything has to be a "Ninja", though...

Talking

I think the preferred term is "Ninjo-Americans".

Guessing the Z1000 and Ninja K are good, it'll either be the replacement for the ZX-10R or ZX-14 both or which aren't exactly brand new, the -14 is actually getting pretty old at this point.

I'd go with a hypersport tourer of some sort, with forced induction it can't be homogulated to race outside of speed trials. But a 1000cc super charged motor can easily be cranking out 200hp at the wheel, would make a nasty hyper sport, without all of the extra weight.

I doubt it would be replacing the ZX-10, as that's what they use in WSBK.

Official Kawasaki teaser page for the bike.

http://www.ninja-h2.com

Shows a silhouette of the bike and it is definitely a Superbike. Forced induction and rumored to be 750cc. If the hype is to be believed this will be the fastest production Kawa ever. And if the H2 moniker is true it will try it's damnedest to murder you.

I like it.

It'll be all nannied up, the ZX-10s are putting down 200rwhp with a exhaust and euro tunes, no one has compared them to a widowmaker yet.
