“Unfortunately I cannot divulge pricing until this model is officially released, which we anticipate will be in the near future,” he says.

The supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2 and track-only H2R were unveiled in 2014 and arrived in Australia in 2015 at $33,000 for the standard and $60,000 for the H2R.

It also gets Ohlins rear suspension, an up and down quick-shifter, bank angle display and a serial number plate.

The H2 has 147.2kW (200ps/197hp) of power at 11,000rpm and 133.5Nm of torque at 10,5000rpm, but the supercharger boosts that to 154.5kW (210ps/207hp) and 140.4Nm.

The powerful track-only Ninja H2R has 228kW of power (310ps/305hp) at 14,000rpm and 165Nm of torque at 12,500rpm. With maximum ram air, power literally blows out to 240kW (326ps/321hp).

In July last year, four-time World Supersport champion Kenan Sofuoglu reached 400km/h (249mph) on the Kawasaki H2R.

The Turk reached the speed in just 26 seconds on the closed Osman Gazi suspension bridge, about 50km southeast of Istanbul.
