Kawasaki based the H2 SX on the all out sports H2 but emphasised touring comfort with a less aggressive riding position (somewhere between the relaxed Z1000SX and sporty ZZR1400), taller screen, 2 litres more fuel capacity, increased torque lower down and much higher 195 kg maximum load from a new frame although it's 18 kg heavier.
The 17" wheels take a Bridgestone S21 120/70 tyre at the front and a 190/55 at the rear.
Accessories include a 15 mm lower seat, comfort seat, heated grips, centre stand and GIVI 28 litre clean-mount pannier system like the Z1000SX.
