And one rea­son not to buy it: it’s hefty

BIKE (UK) - - KAWASAKI H2 SX -

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.
