Kawasaki continued the momentum created by the recent Tokyo Motor Show revealing three key new models at the EICMA show in Milan, Italy, overnight.

Illustrating the overall presentation theme of ‘True Commitment’, the initial model to be unveiled was the Ninja ZX-10R SE, the first Ninja to feature electronic semi-active suspension.

Representing the cutting edge of suspension technology utilising Showa units front and rear linked to sophisticated on-board sensing equipment, the suspension system is truly state of the art offering three setting modes and an initial reaction time counted in milliseconds.

Hot on the heels of universal praise for the Z900RS, Kawasaki chose EICMA to unveil the Z900RS Cafe version. With flat black finish handlebars plus a dramatic sculpted seat design, it features a bold two-tone vintage lime green paint scheme, plus a sporty handlebar cowl.

Confirming the much-rumoured next step for Kawasaki’s unique supercharger family was the Ninja H2-SX and the high grade option Ninja H2-SX SE model. They’re crafted as genuine two-seater machines, combining a stunning array of rider aids and technology.

The Ninja H2-SX takes the SX pure sports-touring story to the next level after the hugely successful Ninja 1000SX established the class. And to reinforce its credentials, Kawasaki announced that matched to the power and flexibility of the supercharger application the Ninja H2-SX would deliver the same fuel economy figures as the Versys 1000.

Kawasaki also unveiled plans for two new machines in the 125cc motorcycle category set to appear during 2018. Created in response to demand and the result of numerous customer focus group events conducted by Kawasaki’s European research and development department, the Z125 and Ninja 125 will add further substance to those ranges.
