How about a Sport Tourer based on the Kawasaki H2.

the only thing I like about that bike is that is has a 530 chain on it, and this comes from a guy who owns 2 Kawasaki STX 12F jet skies. Those skies are rock solid but they are NA, the superchargers have really muddied the waters on reliability vs performance. Used to be that only a mechanically inclined person would have a forced-fed motor and they were willing to trade reliability for performance, now everyone wants both and they can't even change their own oil.

Looks nice. My brother has been eye-balling this bike for his next purchase. 200 HP and 495 lbs dry. Basically a sport-touring Busa caliber bike.

Currently I have a Yamaha GTS-1000. Great bike but its getting on in years, and I was thinking of a FJR1300 to add to my stable / replace it. I might have to consider this H2S .

Not cheap. Video talks about cost in Euros. 19,500 Euros ($22,600 US) for the base SX and 23,000 Euros ($26,700 US) for the SE version.

Not cheap, but it is the most powerful Sport Tourer in stock form.



If I were looking for a new Sport Tourer, I think this would be it. I plan to keep my old heavily modded 'Busa for Sport Touring, and general mayhem. grin

Kawasaki officially announced Dec 1st that the new SX will be sold in the US. Price is slightly less than anticipated. $19,000 for base SX and $22,000 for the SE model. Go to Kaeasaki's website for more info.

Chat board popped up the day after the official word it's coming to the US. People getting excited about the new sport touring model. Will probably start showing up at US dealerships around March/April 2018.

A review from John Burns. One of my favorite Motorcycle journalists over the years. He may have been excessively 'Thoreau' in the opening couple of minutes..

Undoubtedly a beast of a bike, and well engineered. But the anime styling adopted by Kawasaki isn't my cup of tea.

Met up with by brother today to checkout his new H2SX, SE version. Nice bike! Two bikes at different ends of the spectrum.
