Whether you enjoy winding through the mountains, riding across the plains, or just heading down the highway, the Ninja H2 SX SE SE will forever change your touring experience. Supercharge YOUR journey with the new Ninja H2 SX SE.

Street Focused Supercharged Engine
Designed to offer both power and fuel efficiency, the Balanced Supercharged Engine delivers a maximum power of 200 PS. But a mission to offer everyday usability in street-riding situations rather than outright performance meant that tuning could focus on the low to mid range, helping to achieve the engine’s superb fuel efficiency. While the engine looks the same on the outside, it is essentially new: the impeller and intake system were completely redesigned; the pistons, cylinder head, cylinder, crankshaft and camshafts are new; throttle bodies are new; exhaust system is new; and gear ratios were revised. Achieving an engine that could deliver superb fuel efficiency and gratifying acceleration at street-riding speeds started with increasing the compression ratio in order to increase the engine’s thermal efficiency. From there, the supercharger, combustion chamber, cams, and intake and exhaust components were all redesigned. The result is a versatile engine character that enables relaxed long-distance riding, easy manageability at slow speeds, and – when called upon – the exhilarating acceleration that only a supercharged engine can deliver.
Superb Fuel Efficiency

The Ninja H2 SX SE’s superb fuel efficiency represents a significant increase over the supercharged engine of the Ninja H2, and is on par with that of the Ninja 1000 and Versys 1000. Combined with its 19 litre fuel tank, this gives the Ninja H2 SX SE a substantial cruising range.

Sports Touring Performance

Complementing the everyday usability and supercharged acceleration of the highly efficient Balanced Supercharged Engine, the Ninja H2 SX SE offers reassuring stability at highway speed, superb ride comfort, numerous convenience features and a host of sport tourer equipment ensuring that it is the mightiest sport tourer on the market.

Full-Fairing: Sportiness and Wind Protection

Full-fairing bodywork contributes to both wind protection and the Ninja H2 SX SE’s sporty looks. The full fairing was possible thanks to the highly efficient engine, which gives off significantly less heat than that of the high-performance Ninja H2. The bodywork strategically shields the rider without being too large, balancing rider comfort and aerodynamics, a large windscreen further protects the rider from wind-blast, offering even greater touring comfort.

Trellis Frame: Passenger & Pannier Standard

The Ninja H2 SX SE 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 Ninja 1000. And increased rigidity and a longer wheelbase deliver the stability for riding at highway speed with panniers, while a 30° steering angle facilitates low-speed  manoeuvres.

KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function): IMU-Equipped Total Engine & Chassis Management Package)

Using the latest evolution of Kawasaki’s advanced modelling software and feedback from a compact Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) that gives an even clearer real-time picture of chassis orientation, 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 transition from acceleration to braking and back again, and to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner. On the Ninja H2 SX SE, KCMF oversees the following systems: KTRC (including traction and wheel lift control), KLCM, KIBS (including pitching and corner braking control) and Kawasaki Engine Brake Control.

Front Suspension

Supersport-sourced suspension delivers a combination of ride comfort and sport performance ideal for street riding and touring. Both front and rear suspension are fully adjustable, allowing riders to make adjustments to suit riding style and conditions.

Fully Adjustable Rear Suspension
KYB fully adjustable mono-shock rear suspension from the 2015-16 Ninja H2 offers superb stability. The rear shock is gas-charged with a piggy-back reservoir, ensuring stable damping performance. Rear shock can be adjusted for compression damping (high/low-speed), rebound damping and preload. Shock settings also contribute to the balance of ride comfort and sport performance. The bottom of the rear shock is mounted via revised New Uni-Trak linkage that offers excellent feedback regarding the rear tyre’s grip condition to the rider.
Electronic Cruise Control

Kawasaki’s latest cruise control system allows a desired speed to be maintained with the simple press of a button. Once activated, the rider does not have to constantly control the throttle. This reduces stress on the right hand when traveling long distances, enabling relaxed cruising and contributing to a high level of riding comfort. Operation of the Electronic Cruise Control is conveniently from the left handle. The system can be engaged with the touch of a button.

High-Class Instrumentation

The advanced, high-tech design of the instrumentation contributes to the Ninja H2 SX SE’s flagship-level quality. The analogue-style tachometer is complemented by Kawasaki’s first use of a high-grade full colour TFT LCD screen. The TFT LCD screen enables information to be displayed graphically. Two selectable display modes (Touring, Sport) allow riders to prioritise the information they want to see depending on the kind of riding they are doing at the time. The standard high-grade full colour display features TFT (thin-film transistor) technology to ensure a level of visibility previously unattainable.

Aggressive Styling

As the world’s only supercharged sport tourer, the Ninja H2 SX SE needed to look the part. Blending aggressive Kawasaki styling that exudes an air of performance, with high-class touches and an exquisite attention to detail, the Ninja H2 SX SE’s
arresting design sets it apart, declaring to all that it is a class of its own.

Dog-Ring Transmission

Like the Ninja H2, the Ninja H2 SX SE features a dog-ring type transmission. The kind of transmission commonly found in MotoGP or Formula 1, it facilitates smooth, quick shifting. Gear ratios were optimised for a sport tourer. A longer primary gear ratio contributes to the Balanced Supercharged Engine’s superb fuel efficiency while helping to reduce the load of its even greater torque on the transmission gears. 1st and 2nd gears are also longer, contributing to easier engine manageability in everyday riding situations. Transmission oil jets (first used in a Kawasaki motorcycle on the 2015 Ninja H2/H2R) enable a compact transmission with high durability.

Hydraulic Assist & Slipper Clutch

A high-quality hydraulic clutch offers less maintenance, ensuring the initial touch condition can be maintained. And the lighter lever operation thanks to the clutch’s assist function contributes to reduced rider fatigue when street riding. Assist & Slipper Clutch uses two types of cams: an assist cam and a slipper cam, offering two functions not available on a standard clutch. When the engine is driving the rear wheel the assist cam functions as a self-servo mechanism, pulling the clutch hub and operating plate together to compress the clutch plates. This allows the total clutch spring load to be reduced, resulting in a lighter clutch lever pull when operating the clutch.

KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)

Dual-direction quick shifter allows both clutchless upshifts and downshifts. Designed for effective sport riding, street optimised settings enable operation at rpm above 2,500 rpm.

KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System)

Kawasaki’s supersport grade high-precision brake management system is standard equipment on the Ninja H2 SX. This is the same base system used on the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-10R, with programming and settings revised to suit the street performance parameters of the Ninja H2 SX SE.

Brakes & Wheels

320 mm brake discs, radial-mount front monobloc calipers and a radial-pump brake master cylinder offer impressive braking performance and superb feel. Steel braided brake lines ensure more direct transfer of hydraulic fluid, contributing to brake feel, while adding to the bike’s high quality image. Cast aluminium wheels designed specifically for the Ninja H2 SX SE feature machining on the spokes and wheel rim tape add to the high-quality image.

Relaxed, Sporty Riding Position

The riding position for the Ninja H2 SX SE was designed with both sport riding and comfort in mind. Not as far forward leaning as the Ninja ZX-14R, and not as upright as the Ninja 1000, the Ninja H2 SX SE’s riding position offers a more relaxed bend for both the elbows and knees than the Ninja ZX-14R. The position is comfortable for both in-town riding and long touring, while still enabling the rider to enjoy sporty riding in the hills.

Seats Designed for Comfort

Both the front and rear seats deliver the comfort you would expect of a sport tourer. In fact, two front seats were designed: a Comfort Seat that offers a relaxed knee bend and thicker urethane cushioning; and a Low Seat (15 mm lower) that prioritises an easy reach to the ground. The rear seat, wider and flatter than on the Ninja 1000, ensures pillion comfort.

Clean-Mount Pannier System

The mounting system for the standard Givi panniers allows the panniers to be attached and removed very simply, contributing to increased convenience. Seamlessly integrating the panniers with the rear of the bike, the clean mount system positions the panniers close to the bike center-line, and, thanks to its clean clutter-free design, ensures the rear of the bike still looks good with the panniers removed. High-speed testing on Germany’s Autobahn ensures stable operation with panniers fitted.

Standard SE Features

Handy 12V DC socket, center stand for easy maintenance, wheel rim tape, wheels with machined surfaces and clear coat, rear wheel hub with machined surfaces and clear coat, tall windscreen, tank pad, knee pads, KLCM, Power Modes, 28L Givi Panniers, premium paint and graphics and steel braided brake lines.
