Kawasaki’s iconic Ninja line of bikes are synonymous with performance and speed. From their base model up through their sport-touring versions, these bikes are racing machines. But, until now, that’s remained true only for the daytime hours. Their new H2 SX SE, however, was made to travel under cover of darkness.
On the beefier end of the spectrum, this sport-touring superbike features a 4-cylinder 998cc engine pumping out 210 horsepower alongside 101 lb-ft of torque – perfect for hauling you and all the gear you need for longer trips (or another rider) without sacrificing too much in the way of performance. But what really sets this special edition bike apart from the pack is the forward-facing lights. The central headlight is aided in turns by a trio (on each side) of LED cornering lights that activate as you lean at angles of 10, 20, and 30 degrees – giving riders unheard-of nighttime visibility. That makes this perhaps the ultimate night ride motorcycle. Pricing starts at $22,000.
