2018 Kawasaki H2 SX SE First Ride Review

The 197.3 crankshaft hp Kawasaki claims jumps to 206.7 hp with ram air effect. The oil pan is even cool: “More efficient combustion produces less heat so that the pistons can be cooled by a single oil jet, which allows the oil pump to turn at a slower rate to reduce friction loss. This also allowed the engine’s oil volume to be reduced by nearly a half quart which contributes to weight savings. Large, deep-sump oil pan helps cool oil. Oil pan design ensures the oil pump is always surrounded by oil to prevent cavitation.”
