2020 Kawasaki Z H2: Everything We Know



are becoming increasingly bonkers. Thanks to the development of new technologies, companies are able to make insanely fast bikes available to a wider audience. The super and hypernaked segment is more furnished than ever with all the Monsters, MT-10s, and Tuonos out there. While Kawasaki’s Ninja H2 ranks at the top of the craziest hyperbikes out there thanks to its supercharged engine, Team Green had yet to launch a proper hypernaked model. That all changed when the company introduced the all-new 2020 Kawasaki Z H2. 




Kawasaki took the Tokyo Motor Show by storm when it unveiled the super-hyped Z H2. The new hypernaked becomes the company’s new naked flagship, slotting in above the Z900—which might or might not come back for 2020. The new Z’s premise is simple: take the supercharged Ninja H2 and take the fairing off. What happens when you do that? You get a really interesting power-to-weight ratio. 

Technically, the transition from fully-faired to naked is a little more elaborate than just stripping the fairing. The new Z is actually built on a chassis of its own and not a carry-over from the Ninja. It uses a trellis frame, coated in the brand’s signature metallic lime green paint. Also unlike the Ninja, the Z uses a double-sided swingarm rather than a single-sided unit—a more affordable option that allows (among other things) the Z to come in below the $20,000 mark. 

Though the folds and lines of the design are reminiscent of the Ninja’s fairing, Kawasaki also injected some of its Z formula into the mix. Called Sugomi, Team Green’s visual language is meant to give the naked lineup a little something aggressive and “predatorial”. In the words of Kawasaki, “Sugomi is the embodiment of the spirit of a predator on the hunt.” The new Z H2 follows the same principle, though the dual headlight cluster crowned with the triangular windscreen
