The Kawasaki Ninja H2R superbike was definitely the star of this year's Intermot motorcycle show in Germany. How could it not have been? Packing a supercharged, 1.0-liter four-cylinder with 300 horsepower wrapped in a carbon fiber fairing and a green trellis frame, it's one of the baddest-looking bikes ever. Since it's reveal, even more tasty details have leaked out that have us salivating.

While turbocharging and supercharging may be nothing new in the automotive industry, motorcycle engines are almost always naturally aspirated. But even that's beginning to change. At the Tokyo Motor Show last week, two major Japanese companies showed off new forced-induction motorbike engines.

Recalls

Kawasaki has issued a recall of its 2011 and 2012 Ninja ZX-10R supersport bikes over an oil leak. The joint where the starter mounts to the crankcase is susceptible to oil leakage, which can lead to oil pooling onto the crankcase and then spilling onto the rear tire.

Kawasaki has released a slew of images of the 2012 ZX-14R, a motorcycle that will feature new electronic enhancements, a reworked engine and slightly restyled bodywork for next year.
