2018 Kawasaki H2 SX SE First Ride Review

This is Sport Mode on the TFT, and you can substitute the lean angle gauge up there where Trip B is currently. Bosch’s compact IMU allows an additional layer of precision to be added to Kawi’s electronics. The system uses minimal hardware but complex Kawasaki proprietary software to monitor IMU inertia along six DOF (degrees of freedom). “Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse and vertical axes, plus roll rate and pitch rate are measured. The sixth axis, yaw rate, is calculated by the ECU using Kawasaki’s proprietary software developed through World Superbike racing. Additional feedback from the IMU gives an even clearer real-time picture of chassis orientation, as it combines chassis orientation information with real time monitoring of the rider’s movements.”
