Supercharged Ninja imminent

Kawasaki has confirmed that it will build a ‘Ninja H2’ around the supercharged engine concept first shown to the world at the end of 2013.

Creating a motorcycle which Kawasaki claim will be “Built Beyond Belief”, the firm has not explicitly said that it will use the supercharged four-cylinder motor, but the language used in their teasing announcement is identical to that used a year ago when the engine concept was revealed.

Supercharged Ninja H2 launch this month

That prototype motor appeared to be based on some of the same castings as the ZX-6R unit, but with the addition of a supercharger to boost power. The new ‘H2’ reference could be a suggestion that the final engine will actually be around 750cc. With a supercharger, the resulting motor would probably be powerful enough to destroy 1000cc normally-aspirated bikes in performance terms, while potentially being smaller and lighter.

I am very interested. The video shows a little bit of it in a silhouette. We should know more Wednesday.

I thought I read an article a couple months back about the zx14 being turbo charged in the coming years. I'll have to do some digging to pull that up

Yeah A&R covered a story on the patents for the Supercharged motor back in December. I saw a bunch of the headlines on this today and all I have to say is that I am excited to see how it works out.

If I understand it right, both turbo and superchargers basically increase horsepower but forcing more air than the engine naturally draws, increasing the amount of air in each cylinder and allowing more fuel to be burnt.

However, a turbocharger works using the pressure generated by exhaust gases. This means that the turbo effect increases gradually with the build of exhaust backpressure, introducing the effect called "turbo lag".

A supercharger, however, operates via a belt connected to a driven pulley off the engine. The downside here is that it requires engine power to turn the supercharger. Because the supercharger is spun by the engine, the "boost" ( > 1 atm air pressure) provided is not dependent on backpressure, and can provide a large amount of boost at low RPM.

In theory, it could be better than a turbocharger, since it would enhance the bike's low-end which is dramatically lacking in the 600's. I'm curious about how it would work out though, since superchargers actually sap a bunch of engine horsepower in order to spin, but should make it back up with the boost pressure.

I like NA, myself. These systems are complex enough... It would be fun to basically have walk away power from any other bike, though.

A factory blower would be pimp as fuck! Motorcycle chubby! I've always wanted to put a blower on Fiona, it just seems like a simpler / more user friendly way to go but nobody makes one. I've read too many nightmares about turbos. Between that & the lag I got no interest.

Such a simple idea that no other bike manufacturers have taken advantage of.

First they came out with the 636 engine... and now this.

My wife has a supercharged MB c-230. Purchased new in 2002 for 30k! With 100k on the car it still rails through the mountains! It's a 4 cylinder that is like a hyper car! Tried to sell it the other day and car max offered me $700!!! It's in perfect condition with 200hp!!,!

I love the low end power! Sc would be a perfect match for the lack of bottom end on a 636!!!!
