And one reason not to buy it: it’s hefty
For reasons that never became clear, Kawasaki’s test route included 40 miles of nadgery B-roads more suited to a Husqvarna 801 supermoto than an interstellar battlecruiser such as the H2 SX. At 260kg wet, she’s a big old girl and hustling her along is a physical effort. Where the electronics and supercharger feel like progress, the weight does not – it’s only 10kg less than a 2002 ZZR1200. Even if you come from a big bike like a BMW R1200GS, the H2 SX feels hard work levering it down a twisty road.
