The Ninja ZX-10R SE, the H2 SX and the Z900RS

The 2017 EICMA gave us a glimpse of what we can expect on our roads the next decade, and it sure looks exciting. Crazy looking concepts and technologically advanced machines filled the floor spaces in Milan, and the Japanese makers stole the show with Yamaha’s three-wheeled Niken and Honda’s tech-powerhouse, the Gold Wing traveler.

Kawasaki was not far behind. The Green Team put up a spectacular show with their gut-wrenching supercharged sports-tourer, the H2 SX, a fancy new superbike with a semi-active electronic suspension, the ZX-10R SE and the retro-classic Z900 RS.

Luckily for us, Kawasaki has decided that we deserve to drive them on our roads and are bringing all of them to the North American showroom floors.
