Kawasaki has updated the colour and graphic options for a number of models for the model year 2018. These updates include addition of new colours as a whole paint scheme, or to the existing schemes for a two-tone look. These changes will soon make it to the new batch of models. Of the top-of-the line supercharged siblings, the Kawasaki Ninja H2R gets an all new color and graphic treatment that is yet to be disclosed. The Kawasaki Ninja H2 Carbon will receive a mirror-coated spark black color in conjunction with matte spark black colour, giving it a dual-tone look.

Kawasaki will also extend the color updates to their scooter range, specifically the J-family. The J300 gets a metallic anthracite black and metallic-flat anthracite black, and a metallic matte gunmetal grey. The J125 shares the flat anthracite black and matte gunmetal grey, both in metallic finish, with the J300.
