*EVERYDAY USABILLITY & SUPERCHARGED ACCELERATIOIN
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.
*NEW TRLLIS FRAME
The Ninja H2 SX 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 30o steering angle
facilitates low-speed manoeuvres
The Ninja H2 SX’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
a substantial cruising range.
*FULLY ADJUSTABLE 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.
And a remote rear preload adjuster greatly facilitates making changes
to accommodate a passenger and/or luggage
Using feedback from the compact Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit)
that gives a 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,
KCMF oversees the following systems :
–KTRC (including traction and wheel lift control)
–KIBS (including pitching and corner braking control)
–Kawasaki Engine Brake Control
