Able to harness the full power of the supercharged engine, the Z H2’s specially designed frame offers a combination of high-speed stability and light handing that facilitates control when riding in the city or on twisty roads – seemingly contrary characteristics. The compact frame, an ideal basis for the form of a naked model, has a high-level balance of stiffness and flexibility, allowing a wide range of riding situations to be tackled.
Balanced Supercharged Engine
Manageable Power Delivery at all speeds thoroughly pursued to achieve a power unit that enables you to experience the high output of 200 PS. When displacement is increased in order to gain more power, this usually results in increased size and weight, which diminishes the merit of any power gained. The Z H2 eliminates this problem by using a supercharged engine. The DOHC 16-valve 998 cm3 In-Line Four Balanced Supercharged Engine generates a high maximum power of 147Kw (200 PS) while also being lightweight and compact. It produces intense acceleration unlike anything a naturally aspirated engine can provide.
Assist & Slipper Clutch
The assist cam reduces the clutch spring load for lighter clutch lever operation, which helps reduce rider fatigue in city riding situations like stop & go traffic or traffic jams. The slipper clutch relieves pressure from back-torque to help prevent the rear tyre from hopping and skidding when downshifting.
Electronic Cruise Control
Kawasaki’s cruise control system allows a desired speed to be maintained with the simple press of a button. Once activated, the rider does not have to constantly apply the throttle. This reduces stress on the right hand when travelling long distances, enabling relaxed cruising and contributing to a high level of riding comfort. Operation of the Electronic Cruise Control is conveniently activated from the left handle.
KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)
At engine speeds (rpm) above 2,500 min-1, KQS enables clutchless upshifts and downshifts. Complementing the powerful engine and dog-ring transmission, the quick shifter is a convenient feature that can be used not only for sports riding but also for city riding and touring. It enables quick upshifts and downshifts, facilitating smooth acceleration and deceleration.
During acceleration, the system detects that the shift lever has been actuated, and sends a signal to the ECU to cut ignition so that the dog-rings can smoothly engage the next gear without having to use the clutch.
During deceleration, the KQS system automatically controls engine speed, allowing you to downshift without operating the clutch.
The system uses a contactless-type sensor, contributing to its high reliability.
