The Ninja H2 has a Supercharger Developed In-House by Kawasaki

091914top-i

Kawasaki has now revealed that the Ninja H2 features a supercharger. A supercharger developed in-house by Kawasaki based, at least in part, on KHI’s gas turbine experience (KHI is Kawasaki Heavy Industries, of which Kawasaki Motors is a division).  All of this information is in the latest teaser video below.  In the video, the supercharger unit appears quite compact. Supercharged engines develop more heat than naturally aspirated engines, in general, so it will be interesting to see the cooling solutions employed by Kawasaki on the production H2 when it is revealed to the public on  September 30 at Intermot.
