With 200 horsepower under the saddle and a pair of side cases, the Kawasaki H2 SX was already a very special interpretation of what it means to travel on a motorcycle. And it was not really useful to add more power. Akashi engineers therefore looked for 2022 on the side of piloting aids. And in this area, the H2 SX intends to become a reference, a leader. Kawasaki has therefore worked with Bosch to offer innovative technologies, through its system called ARAS. Concretely, the H2 SX 2022 adds a forward collision warning system (FCW), adaptive cruise control (ACC) and a blind spot detection system (BSD).
The collision warning, adjustable over three different distances, is effected by a visual message on the instrument panel and leaves the pilot free to take action. Adaptive cruise control, also adjustable over three different distances, allows the motorcycle to automatically decelerate when approaching a vehicle to maintain a constant distance and resumes its initial speed if the vehicle accelerates or changes lanes. Finally, the rear sensor allows it to turn on a light in the mirror concerned in the event of overtaking in the pilot’s blind spot.
Aids in addition to traction control, launch control, engine brake management, various engine modes, hill start assistance, emergency stop signal or even up & down shifter! Another novelty of this 2022 vintage is the SPIN system which allows you to connect your phone and have access to the dashboard to around twenty applications. The new Ninja H2 SX will be available in the first quarter of 2022 under the € 24,000 mark while the SE version equipped with electronic suspensions will be exchanged for just over € 27,000.
