Thumb the starter on Kawasaki’s new Ninja H2 SX and its supercharged 998cc inline-Four springs to life with alacrity. At idle it sounds pretty much like any other sportbike, but even the slightest blip of the throttle sends the revs soaring and introduces an added layer of mechanical sounds, a whirring rushing noise as the gear-driven supercharger accelerates 9.2 times quicker than the engine via 1.15x stepper and 8x planetary gears in its crankshaft-driven drivetrain.
There is a lot going on down there, but it sure seems to work. Motorcycle.com discovered this first-hand when we were given an exclusive opportunity to conduct this 2018 Ninja H2 SX Review – First Ride!, shortly before Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. (KMC) announced the H2 SX was even coming to America.
