2 stage supercharger would get rid of any lag. Could possibly be a torque monster. I wonder what the displacement will be and if it is actually too replace the 14.

Im excited to see this as well...its great to see Kawi continuing to innovate new technology into their bikes.. Unlike Suzuki who continues to sit on their nuts..

I would rather see a turbo on the H2 then a blower but...it will still be a big power gain...from the pics/sounds, it's gonna be a centrifugal blower, boost will climb with rpm so it will be pretty high strung....not that the current zx14 is lacking in low to midrange torque..

No doubt this will be a very mild application. No intercooler or heat exchanger, I would be surprised to see more the 5-6 psi of boost... Would still be plenty enough to make 240-250 rwhp on a low comp ZX14 motor...



Quite a few years ago, Big CC racing in England built a Procharger kit for a hayabusa... It made decent power, very linear and smooth powerband..but it was never a big hit and I don't think they sold many of them...plus they were $$$

The big torque and top end power of turbocharging still ruled...

Well I think the reason for that is because a Turbo is pretty much free power, where as a supercharger requires power to make power. The advantage tho of the supercharger is a more linear powerband. But when it comes to "bang for buck", at least in the aftermarket sense, Turbo has always been the way to go. With that being said, I'm extremely curious to see how this H2 performs in stock form, and to see what kind of tweaks can be made for some serious power. With millions of dollars in R&D behind that bike tho, as opposed to just slapping a charger on a slightly modified already existent engine, I'm sure it'll be quite the spectacle.
