Some reliable sources have indicated that the 2018 Kawasaki H2 SX might arrive in Malaysia sometime in May.
Kawasaki Motors Malaysia (KSMB) did announce before that it’ll debut within the second quarter of 2018.
As for pricing, our best guess would be somewhere around the RM150,000 range.
The world’s most powerful touring motorcycle that is the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX which was launched late last year during EICMA 2017 in Milan, Italy will be making its way here in Malaysia. The good news is that it might be closer than you think so those who are interested can start saving up for the world’s only production sport-touring motorcycle.
Based on reliable sources, the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX will be made available within the first half of the year. If we are lucky, we might be able to obtain this machine just in time for Hari Raya Puasa. Not a bad way to surprise the folks back home during the holiday season, right? It won’t be long before Kawasaki authorised dealers across the country will start taking bookings for the ultimate touring machine which we highly suspect will be unveiled sometime in May.
As for the pricing, that’s a bit of a sensitive issue in today’s world of premium production motorcycles. We all know that Kawasaki Motors Malaysia (KMSB) is very eager to bring this beast in as soon as they can but when it comes to pricing, they have to play their cards right to ensure that it’ll be a big hit among bike enthusiasts here in the country.
While the UK market has priced the H2 SX from £15,099 (around RM83,592), there are a lot of things that need to be considered for any manufacturer who wants to bring in their latest bikes here in Malaysia. With all the import tax, excise duties, and sales tax, we’re guessing that it might be priced somewhere in the RM150,000 range.
All things considered, owning a 998cc supercharged four-cylinder engine that’s able to churn out around 200hp and 140Nm of maximum torque that can handle almost all road riding scenarios is indeed an enlightened journey for those who are able to afford.
Paired with the latest electronic riding aids money can buy courtesy of Kawasaki such as Kawasaki Corner Management Function (KCMF), Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS), Kawasaki Engine Brake Control, future owners will be able to pilot this baby around corners with fun and tenacity when compared to the best of the best in its category.
As for now, all we can do is wait for its official debut which will hopefully be in the next few weeks. Stay tuned to Bikes Republic for more updates.
