Ninja H2 SX SE – 2018


The supercharged Ninja H2 was created to offer riders something they had never experienced. But Kawasaki’s answer to the “ultimate” motorcycle was merely the opening act. Now, for their second supercharger challenge Kawasaki brings the unique sensory experience of a supercharged engine to the sport tourer category with the new Ninja H2 SX and Ninja H2 SX SE.

Where the Ninja H2 – and the sensational Ninja H2R upon which it is based – were born from a pure pursuit of performance, the new Ninja H2 SX was designed from the beginning for real-world applications. Its Balanced Supercharged Engine was developed for everyday street-riding situations, offering an output stronger than the H2 in the low-mid range combined with superb fuel efficiency. Its versatile engine character enables relaxed long-distance riding, easy manageability at slow speeds, and – when called upon – the exhilarating acceleration that only a supercharged engine can deliver.

Thanks to its light weight – in standard trim, the Ninja H2 SX weighs only 18 kg more than the Ninja H2 – the Ninja H2 SX has a power-to-weight ratio between that of the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-14R. The formidable acceleration potential that results is coupled with a high level of touring comfort care of a relaxed, sporty riding position, superb ride comfort, a blend of reassuring high-speed stability and agile handling, a host of touring features, Electronic Cruise Control, and Kawasaki’s latest IMU-equipped electronics package. Its Ninja H2-derived trellis frame also accommodates a passenger and luggage, allowing riders to share their experience.

Riders can choose from two model variations: the standard Ninja H2 SX; or the SE-model, which offers an even higher level of quality, and additional equipment that includes Kawasaki’s first TFT LCD meter and LED cornering lights.

Whether you enjoy winding through the mountains, riding across the plains, or just heading down the highway, the Ninja H2 SX will forever change your touring experience.

Supercharge YOUR journey with the new Ninja H2 SX.
