• Kawasaki’s 2018 Ninja H2 SX can see better in the corners

  • Three led lights stacked in a vertical housing built into each side of the fairing
  • Each LED gets activated based on lean angle calculated by the bike IMU
  • Creating a wider path of light in the direction the bike is heading
  • The combination has 10, 20 and 30 degrees of lean that will illuminate 1, 2 and 3 lights on the lean side
  • It is available only on the top-spec 'SE' variant Costing $22,000 (Standard H2 SX-$19,000)
  • The SE also gets top-drawer kits like the up/down quick-shifter, Kawasaki Launch Control Mode (KLCM), heated grips, TFT etc
  • Ducati also gives its Multistrada 1200 with cornering lights
  • And so does Triumph for its Tiger 1200 Triumph Adaptive Cornering Lights

The ’world’s only’ supercharger tourer gets LED cornering lights

Every time I ride in the dark, be it in the city or the highways, I always wanted to see more ahead. Manufacturers have gone a great deal in headlight designing and have come a long way from halogen powered spots to the projector and the very recent LED powered multi-reflector beams.

State regulations also force manufacturers to maintain standards with illumination and light throw. Yet, there is always that ‘gray area’ in your light view you wished you did not have. Especially while tackling corners, where the edges of your light narrows as you lean.

Luckily manufacturers have a new trick up their sleeves to tackle this problem and Kawasaki shows it with their LED cornering lights on their brand-new Ninja H2 SX SE sport-tourer.
