The Ninja H2™R motorcycle 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 Ninja H2R are for closed-course riding use only and cannot be purchased without proof of H2R ownership (product registration, VIN confirmation, etc.).
The exhaust sound level of the Ninja 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 Ninja H2R:
The standard tires are designed exclusively for use on a closed-course. These specialty tires are not designed for oval or partial oval course use and may not be suitable for other courses or conditions. Kawasaki recommends that you follow the tire manufacturer's instructions and warnings, and that you consult the tire manufacturer to select the appropriate tires for the course or riding conditions.
Computer controlled systems including KIBS, KTRC, KCMF, KLCM, Kawasaki Engine Brake Control, and KQS are tuned with the standard tires. Use of tires other than the standard tires could affect performance of these systems.
Front: Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V01F Soft
Rear: Bridgestone, Racing Battlax V01R Medium
To prevent loss of tire grip, always use tire warmers to heat tires prior to riding the Ninja H2R. Cold tires do not provide sufficient grip and may cause loss of vehicle control and/or a crash which could result in injury or death.
When storing the Ninja H2R, always use front and rear motorcycle stands that keep both tires off the ground. This will prevent tire deformation and adverse impacts on performance.
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)
The Ninja H2R is sold “as-is” with no warranties, express or implied. The purchaser accepts all responsibilities concerning cost of service, maintenance and repairs.
