Green, mean, warp speed touring
The Japanese manufacturer’s main attraction at the expo was the launch of the H2 SX sport-tourer. Derived from the super-charged H2 hypersport, the H2 SX makes for a rather intimidating touring machine. Despite its intended use as a touring motorcycle, the motorcycle packs a 200bhp, supercharged, in-line four cylinder engine borrowed from the H2 hypersport. The sport tourer is intended to appeal to those who like to enjoy the scenery fly past in a blur while covering great distances and enjoying the demands of sport riding when touring. Kawasaki has added a larger windscreen than the standard H2 along with heated grips and a stronger rear sub-frame keeping in mind luggage and pillion carrying abilities. The powerful and outlandish looking H2 SX will be available for Rs 21.8 lakh ex-showroom while an SE version is priced at Rs 26.8 lakh ex-showroom and gets touring hard panniers among other accessories.
cruiser was borrows the Ninja 650’s parallel-twin motor pushing out 61bhp and 63Nm. These figures are slightly lesser than the Ninja 650 in an effort to make the power delivery more manageable to newer riders. The addition of adjustable footpegs further helps in broadening the appeal of the motorcycle to different riders.
