The naked twins come with a very powerful supercharged, inline four-cylinder engine and tons of other advanced features…
After first revealing them in October 2019, the Japanese automaker – Kawasaki has just launched its flagships in India – the Z H2 and Z H2 SE. Both the motorcycles come in Metallic Diablo Black/Golden Blazed Green color options.
In terms of prices, the Z H2 has been priced at Rs 21.9 lacs, whereas the Z H2 SE will retail at Rs 25.9 Lacs (ex-showroom prices). It is to be noted that the SE version is the premium variant of the H2 hyperbike.
Kawasaki will import these motorcycles into the country as completely built units (CBUs) only against fully paid orders. Both the bikes will be sharing their engines with their super sport sibling – the Ninja H2.
For reference, the Zs are equipped with a 998 cc, supercharged, liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engine that produces peak power of whopping 200 PS at 11,000 rpm and max torque of 137 Nm at 8,500 rpm. It is mated to a six-speed gearbox that is equipped with an assist and slipper clutch for smoother gear-shifts.
In terms of build, both the models are built on a high-tensile steel trellis frame. However, while the standard Z H2 comes with Showa Separate Function Big Piston forks at the front and Showa monoshock at rear, the more premium, SE version features the Showa Skyhook’s electronically adjustable suspension system.
Currently, these two are the only supercharged motorcycles on sale in the country. Hence, they have no direct competition. However, things may heat up if Aprilia launches the Tuono V4 1100 Factory in the country.
