Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX Launched at Auto Expo 2018 – Supercharged Tourer comes at an approachable price tag, still far away from most enthusiasts though
Exactly two years ago, in 2015, Kawasaki emanated with the supercharged super-sport faction of choppers with the Ninja H2. Inclusive of the H2, H2 Carbon and H2R, the complete Ninja H2 range acquired a minor revamp during the month of October, in the year 2016. During the 2017 Milan Motor Show, which took place much recently, the Japanese manufacturer unveiled the Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX and SX SE, also summating two more stocks to the Ninja H2 portfolio.
Planted with reference to its inferno inhaling kin, the Ninja H2 SX has secured its place as an adventure tourer while the Ninja H2 SX SE version is capable of bringing more equipment to the table over the former. Kawasaki has optimally used the second-generation 998cc inline-4 supercharged motor which is capable of producing 200 PS of power at 11,000 RPM and a torque of 137.73 Nm at a speed of 9500 RPM. It is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and the engine generously offers better power delivery in the low and mid-range and there is also a better fuel efficiency owing to the adjusted confining rate and gearing.
Both the H2 SX and H2 SX SE are seated on an espalier cage and the H2’s suspension and braking hardware are well utilised. The duo proudly dons a pair of 43 mm inverted forks at the front and a revised mono-shock at the back end. The braking system is en routed by a pair of semi-floating discs of dimension 320 mm at the front and also a single disc with a measurement of 250 mm at the rear. To serve as an addendum to its voyager accreditation, the Ninja H2 SX possesses a huge19-litre fuel tank, a funky lightweight exhaust, revised gearing, advanced cruise control, cornering ABS, a magnanimous three-level traction control, a sharp inertial measurement unit (IMU) along with a bright all-LED lighting setup.
The Ninja H2 SX SE receives supplementary equipment in the form of adaptive cornering lights, launch control, larger visor, TFT instrument console and a bi-directional quick-shifter. Truly, the sports-tourer duo ascends the touring scene to next levels with their segment-first supercharged engines. The pair is anticipated to begin a worldwide production run very swiftly. The H2 SX is priced at Rs 21.80 lakh and the high-spec H2 SX SE is priced at Rs 26.80 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom)
