Kawasaki is building hype around its new, and potentially groundbreaking, Ninja H2 sportbike with a series of short videos. Each one highlights a certain aspect about the bike, and last week’s third teaser video was an audible delight, as we got to hear the supercharger discharge get expelled every time the throttle was closed.

To say the H2 is hotly anticipated around these parts is more than just an understatement. Now, however, with the release of this, the fourth teaser video, we can’t stop drooling over the thing. Starting with an homage to bullet-fast Ninjas throughout the decades, this video shows a silhouette of the upcoming H2 and we like what we see.

Discuss this on our new Kawasaki Ninja H2 Forum

The compact, yet stylized curves of the bike lend a very aggressive stance, but the especially sharp-looking nose section looks ripe to cut through the air. There also appears to be a chin-spoiler-type device, possibly for downforce, which also lends to the image that this bike is going to be extremely quick. The stubby tail, slim gas tank and slick tires give the aura as if this bike is positioned to have ZX-14-like speed with ZX-10-like agility and corner carving ability. Whatever it is, we can’t wait to ride it. Tell us what you think of this latest teaser video below, and stay tuned for teaser video number five on September 11.

    I gues no one is paying any attention to the fact that this bike is hydrogen powered.

      Look at the second video. The person that pulls up to the pump grabs hold of a high pressure gas connection.

        What “second video” are you talking about? The second video on the H2 site is a sound clip.

        Actually, I think it’s powered by unicorns and rainbows.

    I’m sort of disappointed (actually I’m really disappointed) that this probably won’t be a spiritual successor to the H2 triples of old.

    It occurs to me that when a company touts a new product as the dawn of a new era it better deliver. It’s safe to assume the brains at Kawasaki know this and did not over-promise. If I am right what can we possibly expect? I don’t know enough about motorcycles to know what the next step forward in evolution might look like. Perhaps a relatively smaller light-weight engine (i.e., 750 CCs) that produces massive power? Is that even possible? I don’t know. Anyone have any ideas?

    Looking at the heritage video, I wonder how long it will be before we start seeing retro styled sportbikes being released. I think that first Ninja with the 2-tone they are duplicating on the new ZX14 is a pretty motorcycle.

    It’s time for a real journalist to do some detective work here… If they’re really planning to sell this bike, there will be patent filings and emissions testing for the motor that have been completed, and should outline the specifications of the motor, and these things are usually public record. Anyone?
