Simply known as the Ninja H2 Carbon, this limited-edition model is an enhanced version of the original.

A limited run of 120 units will be produced globally, with only six available to the U.S. market.

“This limited edition Ninja H2 Carbon is going to create a lot of envy among riding enthusiasts,” said Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. (KMC) Senior Vice President of Sales Operations, Bill Jenkins. “The Ninja H2 made a big splash in the industry when it was introduced, and I believe we will see a lot of activity when ordering begins on February 13.”
