Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE
« on: December 05, 2017, 08:03:12 am »
I thought any Kawasaki fans out there might be interested in this vid posted yesterday by motorcycle.com: -

Looked impressive when I sat on one at the UK Bike Show a couple of weeks back. Availability, probably March 2018, but be warned, K have form when it comes to the late arrival of luggage/accessories.

I have never been a Kaw fan do to there less refined fit and finish along with the billboard Ninja plastered on the side, but that bike is looking pretty bad ass for a weekend cruiser.
Ride while you can!

Looks like a pretty cool bike, but $22K?  Is this the new normal for a state-of-the-art sport tourer?  I must be getting old, but I can buy a very nice brand new GTI for this money!  My next bike is going to be a under-$6K machine - I just don't see 4x the value in something like this vs. a $5500 Ninja 400.

The theory of a supercharged bike is cool.  Mo' pow'r!!  But....as markjenn says, 22k?!  I can't believe I'm saying it, but, how much power does a bike need?  Too many deer, dogs, and inattentive drivers.  I went through tires fast enough on the FJR; it has to be worse with a blower added to the mix.  It IS a cool bike , just not for me.

That Z900RS looks nice, although it is disappointing that Kawasaki is asking a $2200 premium for the better-looking retro-styled version vs. the basic Z900 ABS.  In this genre, I wish Honda would import this higher-spec CB1100  to the USA.

What's old is new again....The Honda looks very similar to the '00ish XJR.  (even has the sculpted tank)
