2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX Pricing "Surprisingly Affordable"
Motorcycle-magazine.com, Motorrad magazine’s English-language website, says it’s just seen Kawasaki’s price list in the UK, and reports the new H2 SX supercharged sporty tourer “is more than £10,000 cheaper than the H2 superbike that spawned it” – just £15,099. That’s $19,816 in today’s US dollars, and compares very favorably to the $28,000 list price for a regular H2 in the US, a bike bereft of saddlebags, room for a passenger, or electronic cruise control. All are standard on the SX.
Meanwhile, Canadian Kawasaki Motors released pricing for the SX and the other new 2018 models. North of the border, the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX is priced at CA$21,899 (US$17,192) with a special edition version priced at CA$25,299 (US$19,862). By comparison, the 2018 Ninja H2 clocks in at an even CA$31,000 in Canada, or about US$24,339, about $3,661 less expensive than what the H2 is priced in the US.
Kawasaki still hasn’t confirmed if the bike is even coming to the US, but given it sells the H2, H2 Carbon ($31k) and H2 R ($55k) here, it’s hard to imagine they wouldn’t also import the SX. Based on the Canadian and UK MSRPs, if the US price winds up being under $20k, we imagine if you want one you better start cozying up to your Kawasaki dealer yesterday.
