As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Has 210 PS on tap.

Finally, owning a high performance superbike in India is no more a distant dream or a complicated affair. Zigwheels reports that the Kawasaki Ninja H2 is expected to be launched in the country in early 2015.

The Ninja H2 has a power-weight-ratio of 0.88 PS/kg.

This move from Kawasaki could prompt rivals like Yamaha, Ducati and Honda to field their highly exclusive hyperbikes in India. In the recent past India has become the country of interest for brands like Harley Davidson, Triumph, Indian, and Benelli.

Coming back to the H2, the supercharged litre-class superbike which premiered at EICMA 2014 earlier this month is a road legal monster which is engineered to accelerate like no other production bike. The 999 cc inline four-cylinder motor is capable of 200 PS (197.1 bhp) at 11,000 rpm which can be pumped up further to 210 PS (207.04 bhp) by using ram air technology.
