The Fine Print:Kawasaki Ninja H2R

Exhaust Sound: â€¨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 tires 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 tires for H2R usage.
  • Tire Warmers:
 To prevent loss of tire grip, always use tire warmers to heat tires prior to riding the 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.

    Vehicle Storage:
 When storing the 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.
