Kinda like Ford's Ecoboost but for bikes.
That would be sick. An additional bike to the garage for sure.

From the picture is Def a 600, has showa separate function forks, yoke nut of 600, traditional suspension of the 600.

I'd say it's either a new 600cc bike for racing eg not the 636 which can't be used for racing in wsbk etc.

Or as stated above some kind of 750, I don't think supercharged will show again that was more a one off H2 thing.

The picture is a stock photo of another bike, the only info they have about the R2 is the name patent.

First thing I think of is, 1 better than an R1
... then I think of the Ninja 250

Maybe this was the original thought for the the H2/H2R.

Or maybe Kawi is like McDonalds, Apple, and every other large corporation that has a naming "theme" to their products, and they're just trademarking any and all ideas.

I'd consider Kawi's Grom contender if they sold it in the US. I'd get great mileage on my commute, 7 miles all under 40mph posted speeds.
