ENGINEERED TO BE FREE.

A unique combination of supercharged acceleration and long-distance comfort

Originally conceived to be the fastest sports tourer on the Autobahn, the Ninja H2 SX offers a unique riding experience. With supercharged acceleration and the equipment to cover long distances in comfort, Kawasaki’s supercharged sport tourer will have riders smiling in their helmets as they eat up the miles.

Balanced Supercharged Engine

Designed to offer both power and fuel efficiency, the Balanced Supercharged Engine delivers a maximum power of 200 PS. Tuning focused on the low-mid range prioritises everyday usability in street-riding situations over outright performance, and helps to achieve fuel efficiency to rival that of the Ninja 1000SX and Versys 1000.

Wind Protection & Aerodynamics

With its large windshield and full-fairing bodywork, the Ninja H2 SX provides substantial wind protection, contributing to rider comfort on long rides. In addition to contributing to sporty styling, the aerodynamically shaped bodywork is also a benefit when riding at highway speeds.

Comfortable Seating for Two

Ergonomically designed front seat both provides comfort for spending long hours in the saddle and accommodates position changes for sportier riding. Both rider and passenger seats are wider than previous, and revised shapes, thickness and density add to rider and passenger comfort.

Clean-mount Pannier System

Attaching and removing the accessory panniers is simple and convenient thanks to the mounting system. When mounted, the panniers integrate seamlessly with the rear of the bike; when removed, the clutter-free design ensures the rear of the bike looks good.Ninja H2 SX SE shown

Night Riding

LED cornering lights, sets of three lights built into each side of the fairing, help illuminate the road when cornering. Each of the three lights has a fixed direction and is activated based on lean angle. As the bike leans over, the lights come on in order, creating a wider illuminated path in the direction the bike is heading.

IMU-Enhanced Electronics

Kawasaki’s highly sophisticated electronic management systems offer rider support to allow them to more fully experience how the Ninja H2 SX is fun and rewarding to control.

KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function): Total Engine & Chassis Management Package

Using advanced modelling software (Bosch software updated with Kawasaki input) and feedback from a compact IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), KCMF monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner – from entry, through the apex, to corner exit – modulating brake force and engine power to facilitate a smooth transition from acceleration to braking and back again, and to assist riders in holding their intended line through the corner.On the Ninja H2 SX, KCMF oversees the following systems:- KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control) (including traction and wheel lift control)- KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode)- KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System) (including pitching and corner braking control)- Kawasaki Engine Brake ControlNinja H2 SX SE shown

Integrated Riding Modes: Sport, Road, Rain, Rider (manual)

All-inclusive modes that link KTRC, and Power Modes allow riders to efficiently set traction control and power delivery to suit a given riding situation.Ninja H2 SX SE shown

Kawasaki Quick Shifter

Complementing the engine’s strong power and the dog-ring transmission, a contactless-type quick shifter enables quick upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and quick and easy deceleration.

Kawasaki's most advanced model to date

The Ninja H2 SX is Kawasaki’s first model to integrate an FI-ECU with torque-demand capabilities; new IMU that measures in six DOF; and boost-circuit-equipped ABS with high computational power, enabling coordinated chassis control. Working in concert, they enable coordinated control of both engine output and brake force. Complementing this new core system, the Ninja H2 SX is equipped with Bosch’s radar-based Advanced Rider Assistance Systems (ARAS) and a number of other first-time functions, making it Kawasaki’s most advanced model to date.

ARAS: Adaptive Cruise Control

A more advanced version of Electronic Cruise Control, ACC maintains the speed set by the rider, but adjusts the vehicle speed to maintain a suitable following distance from the vehicle in front.A front-facing radar sensor uses millimetre-wave radar to scan ahead in the rider’s lane. When the distance to the vehicle in front is deemed insufficient, the ABS-ECU directs torque to be reduced. When the necessary decrease in speed is not great, this can be accomplished with engine braking (executed by the FI-ECU); when stronger deceleration is required, the ABS-ECU also activates the brakes. Once more space becomes available, the ABS-ECU directs the FI-ECU to increase torque and the throttle is increased to return to the set speed.Riders can choose from three following distance settings: Near, Medium, Far.Ninja H2 SX SE shown

ARAS: Forward Collision Warning

A front-facing radar sensor monitors the distance and speed of the vehicle in front. When a vehicle is in close proximity and there is danger of a collision should the current speed be maintained, the system alerts the rider using a bright flashing red LED light above the instrument panel. A warning is also shown on the TFT display. Riders can set the alert timing according to preference: Early, Medium, Late.Ninja H2 SX SE shown

ARAS: Blind-Spot Detection

A rear-facing radar sensor monitors the bike’s surroundings and alerts the rider to the presence of a vehicle approaching in the rider’s blind spot. When an approaching vehicle is detected, an LED built into the rearview mirror will light up. Should the rider indicate the intent to change lanes by switching on their turn signal while a vehicle is detected in a blind spot, the mirror LED will flash.

Vehicle Hold Assist

Activated when the rider has stopped and firmly applies the brake(s), VHA engages the rear brake to allow the rider to relax their brake hand.

Emergency Stop Signal

During hard braking, ESS causes the brake light to flash, calling attention to the bike’s quick deceleration.

High-grade features

Befitting a flagship model, the Ninja H2 SX features large, full-colour instrumentation in addition to a host of high-grade convenience features including KIPASS and TPMS.

6.5" TFT Colour Instrumentation

Large, easy-to-read 6.5” full-colour TFT instrumentation adds a high-tech touch to the cockpit. Complementing the multiple display windows and Smartphone connectivity, compatibility with Kawasaki SPIN offers numerous infotainment possibilities.

Infotainment at a glance

Kawasaki’s new smartphone-based infotainment app enables various third-party applications to be downloaded and displayed on the cockpit’s TFT display.Ninja H2 SX SE shown

Kawasaki's Intelligent Proximity Activation Start System

With the compact key fob (portable immobiliser) in a pocket, KIPASS allows riders to remotely release the bike’s steering lock and main switch simply by approaching the bike. When the key fob is close to the bike, the signal it sends out is picked up and recognised by the KIPASS unit in the bike. Like immobiliser keys, each key fob has a unique signal, making this system also useful as a theft deterrent. The key fob can be recognised when in a jacket pocket, so there is no need for the rider to remove the key to operate the bike’s main switch. An internal-cut-style flip-key inside the key fob is used to open the fuel tank cap and remove the rear seat.This system uses the encryption algorithm “MISTY” developed by MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC CORPORATION.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

TPMS continuously monitors tyre air pressure while riding, adding to rider reassurance on long tours.
