Green, mean, warp speed tour­ing

Auto Today - - Feature -

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.
