Kawasaki launched its two variants of the Kawasaki Z H2 and the Kawasaki Z H2 SE, priced at 21.9 lakh (ex-showroom) and ₹ 25.9 lakh (ex-showroom) respectively. Powered by a supercharged, liquid-cooled 998 cc engine, the Z H2 generates 197.3 hp at 11,000 rpm and 137 Nm at 8,500 rpm. Both bikes feature a number of electronic driver aids, from driving modes to traction control and ABS when cornering. Both variants of H2 are available in one color, Metallic Diablo Black / Golden Blazed Green. Kawasaki Z H2 SE is priced at Rs. 25.9 lakh (ex-showroom) with electronic suspension and Brembo Stylema brakes.
The Kawasaki Z H2 has four ride modes, Road, Rain, Sport, and Rider, and the Rider mode allows for complete customization of the settings. Additionally, there are three power modes, each with low power based on multi-surface and wet use. Additionally, there are other electronic driver aids such as Kawasaki Launch Control, Traction Control, and Cruise Control. The device is a full-color TFT screen with Bluetooth connectivity for pairing a smartphone. The six-speed transmission with a standard quick up / down shift helps provide power to the wheels.
The Kawasaki Z H2 features a Showa SFF-BP fork with adjustable compression and rebound damping, while the rear suspension is actuated by the Uni-Trak, gas-charged Showa shock with adjustable compression and rebound damping. The braking functions are handled by the four-piston Brembo M4.32 monoblock calipers that have two 320 mm discs on the front wheel, while on the rear wheel there is a single-piston caliper that holds a 260 mm disc.
On the Kawasaki Z H2 SE, the suspension is driven by a 43 mm inverted fork (SFF-CA) that is electronically controlled by Kawasaki’s semi-active electronic suspension. Skyhook provides electronically controlled compression and rebound damping, and manual spring pre-loading adjustment. The rear suspension is Uni-Trak, BFRC lite, and a gas-charged tank with controlled KECS pressure, rebound damping, and manual spring pre-loading adjustment. Braking on the Z H2 SE is done by Brembo Stylema four-piston calipers holding 320mm discs and single-piston calipers holding a single 260mm disc in the rear wheel.
