In 2018, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer launched the Ninja H2 SX, a powerful supercharged motorcycle that came with the engine, frame, electronics, and bodywork either heavily revised or new.

In the engine department, Kawasaki aimed for a broader spread of performance without messing with the top-end performance with changes that included new pistons, camshafts, throttle bodies, and a new supercharger.

As for the power figures, the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX was powered by a 998cc four-stroke four-cylinder liquid-cooled supercharged engine that delivered less power but more torque than the H2 model with 197 hp with a peak at 11,000 rpm and 137 Nm (101 lb-ft) of torque available at 9,500 rpm.

The SX model featured three-mode traction control and three power level settings, and the possibility to be fitted with some of the SE model features, such as the windscreen, center stand, heated grips, and 12V socket.

For suspension, the bike packed a 43 mm adjustable inverted fork on the front and a gas-charged Uni-Trak piggy-back adjustable shock absorber on the rear.

As for braking performance, the SX model featured two 320 mm discs with four-piston calipers on the front wheel and a 250 mm disc with a two-piston caliper on the rear wheel.

Also, the bike featured an instrument cluster that provided a fuel gauge, dual trip meters, bank angle display, boost pressure, boost temperature, and an economical riding indicator.
