After many teasers the house of Akashi has finally released a comprehensive list of pictures and videos of its all new H2R, which is basically the racing version of the upcoming H2.

The new motorcycle looks like something never seen before and sets new standards in its class in terms of style, technology and performance.

Packed with a tubular trellis steel chassis, a single sided swingarm and an innovative 998 cc, in-line four cylinder, DOHC supercharged engine which is rumored to put out up to 300 hp, the all new Kawasaki Ninja H2R has all it needs to impress even the most demanding motorcycle enthusiasts. The scroll-type supercharger was designed completely in-house and represents the start of a new era of motorcycle racing.

Moreover, the entire body was designed by Kawasaki’s Aerospace Company and is made of carbon fiber, as well as the dual intake air duct and the back of the engine. Each part of the body was designed with aerodynamics in mind and a closer look will reveal many resemblances with Jet fighters.

As far as wheels are concerned, the new Ninja H2R sits on 120/600R17 front and 190/650R17 rear rims wrapped in Bridgestone V01 tyres.

We still don’t have the full technical details of the motorcycle but we do know that the new bike features an ABS on the front wheel with Brembo radial-mount calipers.

Peugeot’s scooter division has never managed to raise at the expectations of the French manufacturer as far as sales are concerned. Therefore, under the command of Carlose Tavares which is the new CEO brought in from Renault, the company has took the drastic decision to sell it. It is true that last year, the company saw an 8,2% increase in scooter sales but this wasn’t enough to make them change their mind.

The truth is that in the latest years, the company dealt with a pretty harsh financial situation and their new decision comes as no surprise for us.

For the moment, we don’t have any official confirmation, about this transaction but rumors have it that the company’s scooter division will be bought by Mahindra & Mahindra as hinted by the “Le Parisien” newspaper.

On the other hand, Mahindra is getting bigger and bigger and this acquisition could be another major game changer for the Indian company which is already starting to be seen as a serious player in the automotive industry.

Stay tuned for more details.
