Kawasaki ZH2
on: October 23, 2019, 08:40:10 AM
So the naked Kawasaki Z H2 was revealed today, what a monster!

 
I'll just have to wait for the new S1KR, it'll be interesting to see the new Ducati V4 streetfighter, but I'm prepared for that to be serious money. I need a new bike!!!

Some clear pictures and info from MCN.
And from Visor Down.

YouTube video list is growing.

ECU re-flash and tuning could offer big gains as for the H2 SX SE: +72 HP from Brock. If you don't care about warranties.

I suddenly need one.  ;-)

That s my thinking too Toolman! I p/x'ed my Tigersport 1050 for the S1000R for that very reason, the weight was high up too on the TS.

Looks great, but I do think it could be one of those bikes that everyone raves about but no one buys....   :002:

Thatís a big girl for sure.  Everything looks great except the nose.  It has a double stack affect I donít like.  I think a sharper beak is in order.

Ducati v4 Streetfighter is pure sex but way beyond my purse - the Kawasaki Z H2 though looks like a beast - I could go for that although I've been strangely attracted to the XR in triple black...

Worthy of a test ride for sure. If just for the fun of it alone. I still have an itch after testing the Tuono last year. I will say that I do love the inline 4 screamer on the s1k and the longer into ownership I go, the more I am convinced I bought the right bike for me.
