Kawasaki has updated its product portfolio with the launch of the ZH2 and the ZH2 SE. The supercharged naked motorcycle was first revealed back in October 2019 and according to the latest report, the bike is also set to be launched in the Nepalese market by mid-2021. The standard model is available at Rs 21.90 lakh while the SE variant has been priced at Rs 25.90 lakh in India but once launched in Nepal the price is expected to hit well around more than NRs. 40 lakhs. The Z H2 and Z H2SE are available with a host of features, a sharp and aggressive design with sporty looks.
Kawasaki Z H2 and Z H2 SE use styling and a premium set of hardware that is complemented by features such as full-LED lighting and Bluetooth-enabled 4.3-inch color instrument cluster. The motorcycle is powered by a 998cc, in-line four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve, supercharged engine that produces 197.2bhp of maximum power. While the engine architecture of Z H2 and Z H2 SE is similar to the Ninja H2 superbike motor. The motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox that benefits from an assist and a slipper clutch.
Both models are available in only one color scheme - Metallic Diablo Black/Golden Blazed Green. There are several features worth mentioning which include LED lights all around, a 4.3” full-color TFT display with smartphone connectivity, and a prominent air intake. There are four ride modes – Road, Rain, Sport, and Rider. Besides, there are other rider aids such as Kawasaki Launch Control, Traction Control, Cornering ABS, and Cruise control. The safety features on both models include dual-channel ABS with disc brakes at both ends.
The Kawasaki Z H2 and Z H2 SE are in the league of their own. Kawasaki has also confirmed that both bikes are built to order, which means customers need to make the full payment while booking the motorcycle. Once launched in Nepal, the only comparable rivals in terms of performance are the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro and the Ducati Streetfighter V4.
