Pirelli OE on Kawasaki Z H2
The Kawasaki Z series has been around since 1972, but Pirelli reckons the new Z H2 is the “most radical” model to join the range in the last 48 years. The most powerful too, thanks to a supercharged 998 cc engine that delivers 147.1 kW (197 hp). This power reaches the road via Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres, Kawasaki’s original equipment tyre of choice for its latest naked bike.
It will wear the Diablo Rosso III in size 120/70 ZR 17 M/C (58W) TL (K) at the front and 190/55 ZR 17 M/C (75W) TL (D) on the rear wheel. Pirelli’s engineers specifically designed the front tyre to meet Kawasaki’s requirements for agility and handling. The rear tyre was developed to handle the power and immense torque of the supercharged engine.
