Kawasaki's Ninja H2 SX models are where luxury and performance reach stunning new heights. The balanced supercharged engine was developed for everyday street-riding situations for relaxed long-distance riding, thrilling acceleration and superb fuel efficiency. Enjoy your exhilarating ride with premium features that make the supercharged bike stand apart as an icon of sport performance, luxury and style.
The Ninja H2 SX motorcycle’s supercharger was designed to offer both power and fuel efficiency. Operating in sync with the engine, the supercharger allows high-efficiency operation over a wider range of conditions than could be provided by any other typical supercharger. As a result of the supercharger’s efficiency, no large, heavy intercooler is required to cool the compressed air.
To match the airflow requirements of the supercharged engine, the Ninja H2 SX motorcycle was designed with a Ram Air duct which routes fresh air to the supercharger in as straight a line as possible, contributing to the increased supercharger efficiency. Air supplied to the supercharger enters via a single Ram Air intake in the left side of the upper cowl to optimize flow.
The shape and angle of the Ninja H2 SX motorcycle’s supercharger impeller blades are optimized for the high-efficiency engine. The complex impeller is formed from a forged aluminum block using a 5-axis CNC machining center for precision and durability. Grooves etched into the blade surfaces help direct the airflow.
The planetary gear train runs off the crankshaft—with speed stepped up by an intermediary gear—ultimately producing an impeller rotation of 9.2x the crank speed, reaching maximum speeds of nearly 130,000 rpm, to produce optimal airflow.
The balanced supercharged engine delivers both exhilarating acceleration and superb fuel efficiency. The key to achieving this balance was increasing the engine’s thermal efficiency by utilizing a high compression ratio. Designed for high-performance racing engines, the premium dog-ring transmission allows for smooth, precise, quick shifting. Rather than shifting gears into place, the gears in this configuration stay in place, with the lightweight dog rings moving to engage the gears. A high-quality hydraulic Assist and Slipper clutch minimizes wheel chatter caused by rapid downshifting and self-adjusts to ensure consistent performance and smooth actuation.
The Ninja H2 SX streetbike's supercharged engine creates unprecedented power for remarkable acceleration. The heavy growl of the boosted liter-class engine is a sound the streets won't soon forget.
This next-level system enables predictive and adaptive electronics for precise chassis orientation awareness. Compact IMU enables inertia along 6 Degrees of Freedom to be monitored. Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse and vertical axes plus roll rate and pitch are measured. The yaw rate is calculated by the ECU using Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modeling software.
Using the latest evolution of advanced modeling software and feedback, 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 smooth transitions from acceleration to braking and back again while also assisting riders in tracing their intended line through the corner.
Whereas many competitive traction control systems react to wheel-slip, this IMU-enhanced feedback version of KTRC predicts conditions and acts before slippage exceeds the range for optimal traction. When turned on, riders can choose from 3 modes, allowing riders to choose the degree in which each mode intervenes during riding. Riders may also elect to turn the system off.
The instrumentation design combines a full digital LCD screen with an analogue-style tachometer. LCD screen features a negative display (white characters on a black background), contributing to the high-quality image. In addition to the digital speedometer and gear position indicator, display functions include: fuel gauge, odometer, dual trip meters, current mileage, average mileage, fuel consumption, bank angle display and max bank angle recording function, coolant temperature, boost indicator, boost (intake air chamber) temperature, clock, Economical Riding Indicator and IMU indicator.
The Ninja H2 SX motorcycle comes with three power modes: Full, Middle and Low, allowing riders to select power delivery to suit their preference and riding conditions.
The Ninja H2 SX motorcycle is equipped with LED lights from headlamp to taillight.
Key enhancements bring Kawasaki’s finest electronics management technology to the Ninja H2 SX, resulting in precise chassis orientation awareness that assists a rider’s ability to adapt to a wide range of street riding conditions and scenarios.
KYB fully adjustable mono-shock Uni-Trak rear suspension contributes to the balance of ride comfort and sport performance. Remote shock preload adjuster allows the rider to adjust rear shock spring settings to better accommodate varying loads or riding styles. The KYB inverted low friction cartridge fork offers superb action; initial stroke is smooth and compliant followed by progressive damping through the end of the stroke. The front fork is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping, as well as preload.
In the front, 2 massive 320mm semi-floating discs are gripped by dual radial-mount, opposed 4-piston, monobloc calipers, delivering strong braking force and superb feel. In the rear, a 250mm disc with twin-piston caliper provides strong braking performance.
The IMU-enabled Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) is a supersport-grade high-precision multi-sensing ABS brake assistance system that uses high-precision control to modulate brake pressure during sport riding.
The cast aluminum wheels were designed for optimized rigidity, which contributes to high-speed stability whether riding alone, or with a passenger and cargo. The star-pattern 5-spoke wheel design offers optimum rigidity for high-power performance at highway speeds.
The lightweight trellis frame provides strength to harness the incredible power of the supercharged engine and features a balanced flex to achieve optimal rigidity for both sport riding and comfortable sport touring. The Ninja H2 SX motorcycle shares a trellis frame design similar to that of its Ninja H2 and Ninja H2R counterparts, but it has been completely redesigned to accommodate passengers and luggage.
The massive power of the Ninja H2 SX motorcycle’s balanced supercharged engine demands a multitude of high-performance components to ensure an effortless yet powerful experience to dominate the open road.
The clean-mount saddle bag system Allows the KQR 28L Hard Saddlebag* set to be easily attached and removed for increased convenience.
* KQR 28L Hard Saddlebag set is sold separately as a Kawasaki Genuine Accessory.
The Ninja H2 SX motorcycle’s superb fuel efficiency combined with a five-gallon fuel tank delivers outstanding cruising range. Added comfort comes thanks to a balance of wind protection and aerodynamics produced by the full-fairing bodywork.
A simple press of a button allows the rider to set a desired speed to enable relaxing cruising and enhanced riding comfort.
The sporty yet relaxed riding position of the Ninja H2 SX motorcyle accommodates solo and 2-up riding for a wide variety of riding situations.
