Could there be another supercharged Kawasaki coming? The answer is maybe, if rumours of a new Ninja R2 are true.
Reports from European magazines say Kawasaki has filed for a trademark on the name “Ninja R2.” Team Green already has two 250-class sport bikes in Europe, including a new single-cylinder model introduced to that market at EICMA last year. Anything’s possible, but it’s unlikely they’re introducing another naturally-aspirated beginner bike.
Of course, the biggest news would be a new bike related to the H2, preferably with a supercharger. Or maybe a turbocharger? We’ll have to wait and see, and hope we don’t get subjected to a summer-long teaser marketing campaign like we got for the H2 series in 2014.
