New Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ 2020

With a 210 horsepower Supercharged engine and lots of technology, Kawasaki launches the Ninja H2 SX SE+ in Brazil.


The model is the most advanced Sport Touring ever produced by the Japanese brand.

The manufacturer informs that the motorcycle arrives at dealerships in December to complement the sport-touring range in the country.

With an extensive list of state-of-the-art technological devices, the price of the new Ninja H2 SX SE+ is R$139,990.00.


Kawasaki informs in its statement that the new Ninja H2 SX SE+ stands out for the impressive performance of the supercharged 998cc engine, which reaches a maximum power of 210 hp.

It offers in addition to unprecedented progressive acceleration and energy efficiency (which results in greater autonomy), more comfort for a Touring experience.

Another highlight of the model is the series of other items that make it the most advanced model in the line in the world.

The new version of the H2 SX is equipped with state-of-the-art KECS electronic suspension, ABS start, traction and cornering controls, inertial center (IMU), traction and start controls, four different driving modes and Brembo Stylemma brakes with ABS KIBS system .

It features a dog-ring quick hitch transmission acting in conjunction with a bidirectional quick shifter, which eliminates the need to use the clutch; directional LED auxiliary headlamps installed on the sides of the fairing.

It also features a customizable, easy-to-view TFT color panel and convenience items such as Electronic Cruise Control and a handle heater.


The new Ninja H2 SX SE+ also has the option of mobile connectivity through the Rideology The App (available for iOS and Android).

It allows the driver to set all the motorcycle's settings directly on the cell phone, the driving modes and the rear suspension preload, depending on the load that will be carried.

It is also possible to configure engine braking, suspensions, power modes and traction control.

Rideology The App even allows you to record routes, with very complete information on throttle position, brake pressure, gear in gear, engine rpm and coolant temperature.


And to top it off, the driver has access to all vehicle information, including odometer, total time in operation, partial mileage markers, fuel level, available range, average fuel consumption and speed, maximum lean angles, battery charge, kilometers remaining for the next overhaul and oil changes.

Below, we will see the full list of items highlighted by Kawasaki for the Ninja H2 SX SE+ that has just been launched on the national market:

KECS (Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension)

Based on the system that debuted on the Ninja ZX-10R SE, KECS adds electronically controlled damping to the front and rear in a semi-active system that adapts in real-time driving and driving conditions to the optimal amount of damping required for each moment. .

Combining advanced mechanical components, developed for competition, with the latest in electronic control technology, KECS offers the flexibility to handle a wide range of road and street driving situations and the firm cushioning needed for the most sporty riding.

Another highlight is that with the new suspension control, the tires benefit, adhering better to the tread and providing greater confidence, especially in corners.

• The damping is electronically adjusted to match the motorcycle speed and the suspension travel speed. Deceleration is also taken into account, allowing the transfer of weight between axles in braking to be controlled.

• Control is via a direct acting solenoid valve (single stage). This results in an extremely fast reaction time: 1 millisecond – much faster than similar systems that rely on a stepper motor, or those that use two-stage actuating valves, which decrease the system's responsiveness.

The fast reaction time makes the KECS ideal for sport use, in which a more natural “feeling” about the motorcycle is crucial for the rider to feel in harmony and in control of the equipment.

• Stroke sensors integrated in the fork and rear shock – same feature used on the Ninja ZX-10R SE – provide real-time stroke velocity and compression information. The sensor coils provide data to the central ECU every 1 millisecond.

This is complemented by the information provided by the IMU inertial unit (inclination in acceleration or deceleration) and by the electronic injection (motorcycle speed). The KECS thus directs electrical current to the solenoids which adjust the damping as required by the situation.

• Quality mechanical components are also essential for system efficiency. The H2 SX SE+ KECS uses Showa fork at the front and rear (BFF fork and BFRC shock), the same rear suspension used on the Ninja ZX-10R SE, except that it also has an electronically adjusted preload.

• The damping style is set according to the built-in riding mode (Sport, Road, Rain, Rider (manual) selected. KECS adjusts the damping to motorcycle speed, course variation speed and deceleration.

• With KECS, the rear preload is also electronically adjustable. Pilots can choose between three payload modes (each with a setting of +5/-5):

– Pilot only

– Pilot with luggage

– Pilot with passenger and luggage

• Settings can be adjusted while riding.

Brembo Stylema Tweezers

Brembo's Stylema are the newest and highest quality monoblock clamps available on the market for street models and the Ninja H2 SX SE+ also won the equipment.

• Compared to previous M50 units, the new calipers have less volume around the brake pistons and pads. This reduces the internal space occupied by the brake fluid, allowing for a more direct response.

• They are also lighter, with smaller external dimensions that allow for shorter mounting screws. A new keypoint design allowed maintaining rigidity while allowing a more direct connection to the piston area.

• Stylema calipers cool very quickly thanks to increased airflow around the brake pads, more space around the pistons and an opening that allows air to exit the center bridge.

Integrated Riding Modes: Sport, Road, Rain and Rider (Manual)


Integrated piloting modes – which are linked to KTRC, Power Mode and KECS – allow pilots to efficiently set traction control, power supply and suspension to suit a given riding situation.

• The rider can select between three settings (Sport, Road and Rain) or one manual (Rider). In the latter mode, each of the systems can be adjusted independently:

– Sport: allows the pilot to enjoy more sports on more winding routes.

– Road: Offers comfortable driving in a variety of situations, from city to highway cruising speed.

– Rain: offers even more safety on wet floors.

• Modes can be changed even while riding. For this, the pilot simply presses a button on the left hand grip.

Color TFT LCD Multifunction Panel


The high-tech design of the panel raises the quality level of the Ninja H2 SX SE+.

The analog-style tachometer is complemented by a color TFT LCD screen that allows information to be displayed graphically. Four selectable display modes prioritize information depending on the type of riding.

• High-quality color display features TFT (thin-film transistor) technology to ensure a level of visibility previously unattainable.

The background color is selectable (black or white) and the screen brightness is automatically adjusted to suit the ambient light. In addition to the scrollbar windows, two views give users the choice of how they want information to be presented.

– Type 1: Designed for touring riding, layout is easy to read and offers more information at once.

– Type 2: designed for sport riding, important information is prioritized and presented          graphically for readability. Throttle application and G-force (based on IMU feedback) are          illustrated visually rather than numerically.

– Type 3: designed for sport riding, important information is prioritized and presented          graphically for readability. Brake application and G-force (based on IMU feedback) are illustrated visually rather than numerically.

– Type 4: designed for sport riding, important information is prioritized and presented          graphically for readability. G-force applications (based on feedback from the IMU) are illustrated visually rather than numerically.

• In addition to the speedometer and digital tachometer, the following are displayed: gear indicator, fuel gauge, odometers, fuel consumption, tilt angle, coolant temperature, air temperature, clock and economy driving indicator, Driving Modes Integrated piloting and smartphone connectivity.

• All controls are positioned so that operation is easy within reach.

Smartphone Connectivity

A Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel allows the rider to connect the cell phone to the motorcycle without the need for cables.

Using the smartphone app “RIDEOLOGY”, various functions on the dashboard can be accessed, contributing to a new kind of riding experience:

– Vehicle information: fuel gauge, odometer, maintenance schedule, etc.

– Riding log: GPS route information and motorcycle running data can be logged and viewed on the smartphone.

– Phone Notices: When a call or message is received, this is indicated on the panel display.

– General settings: General panel display settings (like preferred units, date, date format etc) can be adjusted by smartphone.

– Settings – Kawasaki Riding Management: Riding mode (Road, Sport, Rain, Rider) can be set in advance on the smartphone and charged when close to the bike, as well as other support systems such as KQS and payload mode.

• Once the motorcycle information is loaded into the app, it can be viewed on the smartphone, including: total distance (odometer), Trip A, Trip B, total time, average fuel consumption, average speed, maximum lean angle ( left/right), battery, Kawasaki overhaul reminder, oil change reminder, etc.

• Detailed riding records, including GPS and motorcycle information, can be recorded.

While driving, the app tracks vehicle speed, rpm, gear position, throttle position, front brake fluid pressure, acceleration/deceleration, current mileage, moment-by-moment coolant temperature.

Once the pilot log has been saved, the pilot can review these items in a graphical style display at any point along the route.

The app can also display a route summary, with information that can include: route traveled, total distance, total time, average fuel consumption (best and average), speed (highest and average), maximum lean angle (right/left ) etc.

For any display mode, the driver can select which items are displayed and can arrange them in their preferred order.

• During riding (with the app turned ON), the motorcycle and smartphone are always connected. When the engine is off, the latest vehicle information will be stored by the app and can be viewed on the smartphone. Any changes made through the app while the engine is turned off or out of range will not take effect until the ignition is activated and the smartphone is nearby and with the app activated.

• An app function allows the clock on the dashboard display to update automatically when the motorcycle and smartphone are connected.

Highly Durable Paint


Kawasaki's highly durable paint (normal and matte, used on tank, fairings and side covers) has a special layer that allows scratches to repair, allowing the paint to maintain its high-quality finish.

• Soft and hard segments in the liner work together like a chemical spring, creating a trampoline effect that absorbs impacts.

• Highly durable matte paint is wear resistant, allowing the paint finish to be maintained for a long time.

The new Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE+ is available at the brand's dealership network with a Suggested Public Price of R$139,90.00 (without shipping) in Metallic Graphite Gray/Metallic Diablo Black/Emerald Blazed Green.
