The Kawasaki Ninja H2 is built beyond belief and starting Aug. 11, Kawasaki’s Team 38 is looking to go #beyondspeed during the famous Bonneville Speed Week. Team 38 will be competing on a specially prepared Ninja H2.
2018 marks the second chapter in Team 38’s pursuit of a record at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Two years ago, the team learned a lot in their maiden trip to the ancient lakebed on a Ninja H2R.
Team 38 is a key component of Kawasaki’s rich racing heritage. Kawasaki first hit the salt bed of Bonneville in 1967 and set 14 new AMA speed records, which was the most records ever established in one year by any motorcycle manufacturer Team 38 was later formed from employees in the Kawasaki Experimental Technology and Engineering department and named after the building they were housed in at the Kawasaki Heavy Industries Akashi Works Plant in Japan. The team is comprised of Japanese employees focused on continuing the racing legacy of Kawasaki while also pushing the development of Kawasaki models.
