Kawasaki Soul Charger - the concept showing a supercharged future

Spirit Charger - a Ninja H2-based supercharged concept

Meet Kawasaki’s Soul Charger, a supercharged concept sketch that shows how Kawasaki is thinking about its supercharged future.

The firm showed the full-faired Spirit Charger at last month’s Tokyo Show but this bike appears to have been saved for the Milan Show and is essentially as stripped-down Spirit Charger concept.

No information was available at time of writing but it appears to use the same supercharged engine as shown in the Spirit Charger.

Announcing the Spirit Charger last month, Kawasaki’s President of Motorcycles and Engineering Company, Kenji Tomida said: “"Firstly the need for machines to possess power and grace, secondly Kawasaki motorcycles should continue to be fun and rewarding to ride and, thirdly, the ongoing reliance on the skills within the entire Kawasaki Group harnessing cutting edge technology to enrich the lives of people worldwide”.

When we spoke to senior Kawasaki bigwigs at the launch of the Kawasaki Ninja H2 and Ninja H2R last year they made no secret about their plans to introduce more supercharged motorcycles.
