The Z brand has a rich history that stretches back almost 50 years. Now with the arrival of the Supernaked Z H2 with its supercharged engine, the second chapter of Z history is about to begin. A distillation of the vast technology possessed by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., the innovative Z H2 is a motorcycle worthy of title “ultimate.” This new flagship model will lead the Z Series into the future.
The Z H2’s most defining feature is its supercharged engine. While the idea of a supercharged engine may call to mind an extremely high powered motorcycle that only a handful of riders are able to ride in very limited conditions, Kawasaki’s modern development philosophy called for a machine that enables a wider range of riders to understand the pleasure of riding a motorcycle. Kawasaki’s supercharged engines were designed with this idea firmly in mind. The Z H2’s supercharged engine achieves the seemingly contradictory goals of ample power and easy-to-manage power delivery.
