All new 2022 Kawasaki H2 SX Model Confirmed. 
New type approvals show Kawasaki will have an H2 SX model for 2022, with changes partially confirmed in this earlier spy shot.

The revised Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX was spotted being tested in February, and now the bike has effectively been confirmed as a model for 2022 thanks to revised European type-approval details.

Whenever a manufacturer makes substantial changes to a bike's specifications, they must update the bike's type-approval documents in order to reflect the changes-and the updated paperwork for the Kawasaki 2022 Ninja H2 SX provides insight into the changes. These new details also align with those seen in spy photos earlier this year, which revealed a restyled nose with a radar beneath a smaller headlight unit. Kawasaki announced in 2019 that it was the first Japanese firm to use Bosch's radar technology-which appears in 2019 as an option on the Ducati Multistrada V4 S and BMW R 1250 RT and as standard on the KTM 1290 Super Adventure S.


The type approvals show that the 2022 Ninja H2 SX grows in width, length, and weight compared to its predecessor. The wheelbase sticks at 58.3 inches, like the current version, and the engine is the same 998cc supercharged four-cylinder, making an unchanged 197 hp at its peak, suggesting the underpinnings of the bike are carried over from before. The 2022 version is fractionally quieter in ride-by tests at 73 decibels instead of 75 decibels, but with a slightly louder peak volume of 94 decibels, up from 93 decibels before. The spy pictures earlier this year showed a revised exhaust silencer—appearing nearly identical to the unit on the naked Z H2—which would account for that change.

The 2022 H2 SX is wider across the beam, with a wider beam width of 30.5 inches to 31.1 inches. Perhaps the new silencer is to blame for the middle-age spread, though tweaked bars and a revised riding position are more likely culprits.

As a result of new license plate brackets, the plate and rear turn signals are now much lower than before, increasing the length from 84.1 inches to 85.6 inches. This change may be indicative of a more substantial modification, such as a rear-facing radar. In addition to the front sensor for adaptive cruise control and accident mitigation, Bosch's off-the-shelf motorcycle radar system includes a rear radar for blind spot monitoring. However, only Ducati's Multistrada V4 S features the rear unit. Currently, the H2 SX's license plate hanger extends horizontally from the bike's tail and would interfere with rear radar monitoring. The 2022 bike's redesigned hanger dives down from its mounting point, so a sensor mounted near the taillight would have a clear view of what's behind.



A 2021 model of the Ninja H2 SX SE+, which includes cornering lights, a quickshifter, and semiactive, electronically adjustable suspension, weighs 578 pounds, but the bike will be heavier by 2022. Both models have been type-approved, and they are much heavier than before; the lighter machine will weigh 587 pounds, while the top model will weigh 589 pounds. I assume that the bike will be available in SE and SE+ forms, but there doesn't appear to be a direct replacement for the old base model, which lacks several of the SE's luxuries but weighs 564 pounds. Additionally, the new type approvals confirm that both 2022 versions of the bike feature the taller screen of the SE, giving it a height of 49.6 inches, without replacing the 47.5-inch-tall base model directly.

The spy pictures from February confirmed the H2 SX will have a new instrument panel with a color TFT display and keyless ignition. Most of the bodywork, including the seats and side panels, can be carried over, but the new nose with its redesigned headlight and radar sensor below it, along with updated air intakes on either side, make for a substantially different look.


An additional unit partially hidden behind the lower section of the bike's screen remains an unanswered mystery. The shrunken main lamp unit on the nose leaves little room for a high-beam headlight, but there's also speculation-backed by Kawasaki patent applications-that it could be a camera as part of an additional safety system.

Until the remaining models in the 2022 range are revealed on November 23, we still have a month to wait.
