The "Ninja" model family is a series which has been produced by major Japanese motorcycle manufacturer, Kawasaki Heavy Industries for many years. Since its launch in 1984, there have been many model changes and updates for this bike which has achieved worldwide popularity. New models, the Ninja H2 SX, Ninja H2 SX SE and Ninja H2 SX SE + were released on 1st February 2019. Here will will run through the main features and appeal of these Sports Touring versions.

Ninja H2 SX

The model is equipped with a "balanced supercharged engine" that develops 200 horsepower, but can be tuned to the low-to-medium range for either more fuel-efficient everyday driving or to focus on sheer performance that redefines the concept of of sports touring. The supercharger, developed in-house is so efficient at controlling heat gain that there is no need for an intercooler, keeping the engine compact and saving weight. The dedicated trellis frame is also compatible with a pillion passenger seat and pannier cases can be attached.

The onboard technology includes "Electronic Cruise Control" which can keep the bike at a chosen speed (engine speed) by only pushing on a button, and reduces stress on the right hand from constantly applying the throttle over long distances. There is also the Kawasaki Cornering Management Function, which monitors engine and chassis parameters through corners to allow a smooth transition from acceleration to braking and accelerating again. LEDs are used for all lighting from headlights to number plate lights.
