Kawasaki H2 SX SE

Boothy’s always going in the wrong direction.

At the opposite end of the sports touring spectrum sits Kawasaki’s all-new steed. The H2 SX SE is a beefed up and slightly detuned version of the megalomaniac, supercharged sensation H2. Unlike the ‘Busa, it comes with (almost) all the fancy tech you would expect to see on an £18,099 motorcycle. Three power modes, traction control, quickshifter, even launch control (yeah I know, on a sports-tourer). The only thing it’s lacking in the electronics department is semi-active suspension. It’s Kawasaki’s attempt at replicating the virtues of a big bore hypersports bike in a new, modern package.

After one look at the SE’s styling, you could be forgiven for thinking it has just been rolled off the set of Tomorrow’s World. Its sharp lines and angles couldn’t be further from the Mr Blobby lookalike Hayabusa parked next to it. Before you throw a leg over the bike you notice the SE’s big handlebar risers which look to facilitate a much less sporty and more comfortable riding position.
