I saw on spec sheet 101 foot lbs. of torque at1000 rpms lower than the H2SXSE motor. The supercharger impeller must be a different design. :scratch:
Maybe. But bikes like the Hayabusa and B-King share the exact same engine but have different characteristics due the a different ECU, different ram air and air box, different diameter down pipes and exhaust, etc etc.

To change torque / horsepower and move it on the rev range doesn’t tell you it’s a different spec engine as it can Possibly have been done on externals.

I can't speak to their design philosophy, although they did something similar with the 14 and the Con, but I'm curious as to why that matters? It's not like we interchange the current parts with an H2.

BMW does the same with their 50i vs M series engines. Same exact motor, but the turbos are different, the intake is a bit different. In the end, it's not the same. /Shrug

I spoke to the director of Kawasaki Canada and he confirms that the motor and supercharger are the same ones used in the h2sx

After seeing the ZH2 and getting a chance to sit on it at the Minneapolis IMS show it was a very comfortable seating position. I also thought it looked much better than looking at online photos. It was placed in wheel chocks so I was not able to move it side to side tho.

^^^^^^ I agree that the Z H2 looks much better in person than in online pictures. For some reason bikes, like people, don't always photograph well and look better in person. I did get to sit on the Z H2 at the IMS show in DC and I loved the upright seating position but it doesnt really feel any lighter than the H2SX. I wish my H2SXSE had the same riding ergonomics has the Z H2 or Kawasaki offered a handlebar kit or clip-ons at the same height as the Z1000.
