Kawasaki’s latest supercharged motorbike can also be its most reasonably priced supercharged motorbike, with the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX coming to the USA with an MSRP of $19,000.
Even the better-equipped 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE is an “reasonably priced” $22,000, when in comparison with the extra sport-focused H2 fashions.
That includes a 200hp model of Kawasaki’s supercharged, four-cylinder, 998cc engine, the Ninja H2 SX is a completely faired sport-tourer, with an emphasis on the game facet of the equation.
The bottom mannequin is available in any colour you need, as long as it’s black, whereas the Ninja H2 SX SE comes within the conventional Crew Inexperienced colour scheme of Kawasaki.
Base options contains an IMU-powered traction management, in addition to cornering ABS, and cruise management, however plunking down an additional three thousand although will get you the luxurious of a TFT colour sprint, in addition to cornering lights, launch management, an up/down quickshifter, heated grips, metal braided brake traces, a DC outlet, and a centerstand.
We aren’t fairly positive that Kawasaki has adequately balanced the effective line of value and options between the 2 fashions, however contemplating the premium that comes with the H2 and H2R, each H2 SX fashions appear to be a fairly whole lot as compared.
For these eager to get in on the forced-induction sport that Kawasaki is enjoying, the Ninja H2 SX looks like the perfect guess, but when truly performing some sport-touring is the secret, then the Ninja SX SE is the plain selection.
The one draw back? Each of those beast ideas the scales in an enormous method: 564.5 lbs in its curbside kind for the SX, whereas the SX SE is 573.three lbs. Umpf!
Whereas the H2 platform has all the time been a little bit of porker, the Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX will get its additional chub from the bike’s beefier metal trellis body, which has clearly been enhanced to help the burden of a pillion rider and baggage.
Of be aware, pannier baggage are optionally available objects, not normal.
