At Kawasaki’s booth all the spotlight
was on the new NINJA
H2 SX, a supercharged sport tourer. Its Balanced Supercharged Engine
(998 cc, 4-cylinder), delivering a maximum power of 200 PS and is designed to
offer both power and fuel efficiency. The Ninja H2 SX features an innovative
trellis frame like the Ninja H2, but to be able to accommodate a passenger and
luggage, the frame needed to be completely redesigned. Its 195 kg payload is
comparable to that of the Z1000SX. Furthermore Kawasaki added a SE version,
which includes full-color TFT dash, heated grips, quick-shifter and central
stand. Two aluminium cases are available for both versions.
KAWASAKI NINJA ZX-10R SE
Kawasaki also introduced a new
version of its top performance Supersport machine. Fresh dominator of the 2017
WorldSBK Championship with Jonathan Rea, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is now
available in SE edition, featuring, for the first time, electronic semi-active
suspension technology, developed in collaboration with Showa. Suspensions,
available in three settings (Road, Track and Manual), are managed by an
electronic unit which suits, in real time, the different riding situations:
acceleration, deceleration and, obviously, including the road surface. The new
Ninja ZX-10R SE edition also features specially cast Marchesini forged alloy
wheels and an up & down quick-shifter.
KAWASAKI Z900 RS CAFE also debuted
at the Eicma show. Kawasaki’s ravishing new Z900 RS has already spawned an
alter ego and it’s called the Z900 RS Cafe. As the self-explanatory name
suggests, the Z900 RS Cafe is indeed a gorgeous take on the cafe racer format.
While it retains the RS’ 948cc inline-four engine, which produces 112.5hp at
8,500 rpm and 98.5Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, it distinguishes itself visually
and through ergonomic. The RS Cafe gets a neat fairing that houses the round
headlight and gets a steeply raked windscreen that’s true to the cafe racer
design philosophy. The bike also receives an all-green paint job, with a
classic white pinstripe that harks back to the era of irreverent motorcycling.
The Z900 RS Cafe also gets a
sporty seat with a hump, which completes its cafe racer visual package. A
lowered handlebar is part of the package, too, and it retains the circular
mirrors as seen on the standard RS. It continues to sport alloy wheels, which
are again the same as on the RS.
