Kawasaki H2 SX SE For Sale
The Kawasaki H2 SX SE is a top of the line sports touring bike powered by a 197bhp supercharged 998cc inline four engine. It's basically a toned down version of the original H2 with a more comfortable riding position, luggage system, fancy TFT dash and way more load capacity.
What Is It?
- The supercharger sounds great
- On the heavy side
It's powered by a liquid cooled 998cc inline four cylinder engine, producing 197.3bhp at 11,000rpm and maximum torque at 9,500rpm. Like the groundbreaking H2 the engine is supercharged, adding around 10bhp with ram air.

- Dual 320mm discs up front with monobloc 2 piston calipers
- 250mm disc at the rear with 2 piston caliper
- Cornering ABS
- Adjustable 43mm upside down fork with 120mm travel
- Remotely adjustable KYB rear shock with 139mm travel
- Assist and slipper clutch
- 3-level traction control, cruise control
- 3 power modes: 100%, 75%, 50%
- LED lighting all round

Kawasaki based the £15,100 standard 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 195kg maximum load from a new frame although it's 18kg heavier. The 17" wheels take a Bridgestone S21 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear.
The higher spec H2 SX SE is available in the usual Kawasaki green (black/grey for the base model), has LED cornering lights built into the sides of the fairing (check the pics for the diagram), a taller screen, Steel braided brake lines, the shinier machined wheels from the H2, launch control, quickshifter, colour TFT dash, centre stand, heated grips, 12V socket and leather/suede seat but it's 4kg heavier at 260kg wet.
Accessories include a 15mm lower seat, comfort seat and GIVI 28 litre clean-mount pannier system like the Z1000SX.
2019: H2 SX SE+ added to the line up with super fast electronic suspension and Brembo Stylema brakes.
