Have you ever ridden a bike that accelerates with 20% throttle the way an FJR accelerates with full throttle, except without the noise, vibration or drama?  It's very fun, and why 200hp is appealing.


I know you exaggerated  quite a bit. But I am curious what bike you had in mind. I had a tuned up ZX14 and an FJR at the same time and my ZX14 couldn't beat my FJR at 20% throttle.

I had a 2013 ZX14R with a flash and full system, weighed about 40lbs less than stock.   It was as quick as my stock FJR at 20% throttle, just have to agree to disagree.

I know the R model is a real torque monster. Heck, my 07 with a Hindle full system and flash was a real torque monster. I never found an R to run against but I weigh 160 lbs so if I found a 200 lb guy he may have had some trouble with me. Ever take your R to the strip?

No I pretty much knew right away I was looking at major issues with the police and sold it after a few months, used that money to get my FJR and couldn't be happier.  With the weight I took off that thing, -1 on the front and full exhaust, is was astonishingly quick.  Right there with my FJR at full throttle and only 20% on the 14R.

Fuel mileage. Mid 30s down to high 20s for the H2. You had better hope this one is a super tanker if it's going to tour anywhere with more than a limp wrist. Superchargers suck for fuel mileage, but the instant response is awesome.
 A turbo FJR could be fun. Back in the late 90's I met a guy with a turbo FZR1000. Now that was the perfect bike!

The Track version was somewhere in the 40K (CAD) range.


Say what? There is no "track version"  Only the SX and SX SE (shown in picture). One has a few more bells and whistles and about a $3K price difference.

Your stock price just went up with me. Your answer is much nicer than the one I would have given him.

According to visordown, testing in Portugal, it’s getting 47.8 mpg and 200 mile range. I think this bike is going to surprise many.  Top shelf SPORT Tourer. Not just a set of bags on an H2. This is an engineered ST. Good for Kawasaki.  Thumbsup And yes, it’s wicked fast.

“That seems to be the Ninja H2 SX’s jewel – its super-charged engine, delivering ZZR power but with better fuel economy. The average fuel-consumption meter said 47.8mpg by the end of the test ride, meaning a range of about 200 miles from the 19-litre-tank.”

http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-news-new-bikes/kawasaki-ninja-h2-sx-review-first-thoughts

Video here 181 mph on the straight at Estoril, Portugal from a standing start. 986 meter straight. Sounds dang good.

Some of us gurus over on my H2 SX site are trying to figure out how many of these they are going to make, with lots of varying opinions.

  • A Kawi press release (in Japanese) made it sound like they were only making 800 total (or 800 of each trim)
  • One French review said that Kawi France isn't even going to import any of the non-SE versions, they see no point.
  • One member called various dealers around the US and his summary is you're only getting on if a dealer ordered one for you. He said 50 total for the US (not sure I believe this one)
  • And advrider thinks they will be as common as any other bike. Lol


So...who knows.

Very nice website over at H2SXriders.net Functions very well too. Just might sign up  Thumbsup
The French video of the display is very cool. Lean angle, voltage ... beautiful display. Just needs a gps et voila!
Looking forward to hearing your hands on review.  

I can see a slightly used SX in my garage in a couple of years ...  Drool Drool Drool

Now that's a sport tourer. On a side note, I think I read somewhere that the bags were tested up to 300 km/h and there's no speed restriction with them mounted.  Lol
