The two new colors involve the same sophisticated painting technique that is employed by the previous paint job.

The ongoing 2015 Tokyo Motor Show is housing the 2016 Kawasaki Ninja H2R and Ninja H2 with new colors. The Japanese sportsbike specialist also has teased an upcoming supercharged superbike called the Kawasaki Concept SC 01 in the form of a sketch.

The Ninja H2R and H2 are now available in Mirror Coated Spark Black and Mirror Coated Deep PinkĀ Gold paint jobs respectively for the new model year. Mechanically, the supercharged hypberbikes remain intact. The 998-cc inline four-cylinder force inducted engine is capable of a scarcely believable 325 PS with ram air (310 PS without ram air) and 165 Nm of torque on board the track-only Ninja H2R.

The new Ninja H2R gets Mirror Coated Spark Black paint job but there are no mechanical changes.

The Ninja H2 is road legal and hence features a toned down variant of the supercharged litre class motor which is good for 200 PS and 113.5 Nm of torque. Both motorcycles employ a 6-speed transmission.

The Concept SC 01 will feature an even more evolved supercharged motor.

Coming to the Kawasaki Concept SC 01, it is termed as a conception of a motorcycle in “not-to-distant future”. While not revealing vital information, the company has said that the concept will be powered by an even more evolved supercharged engine. In addition to the brain warping performance, Kawasaki assures carefully crafted shape, color, sound and texture. The sketch shows an aerodynamic fully faired motorcycle that looks nothing like the menacing Ninja twins.
