Hello From Chiang Mai

Post by ghostwriter78 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:38 am


Hello Everyone,
great to see a professionally made bike forum, really love the collection of info from media and lots of tech details.

So for those who are eagerly waiting here is (my) H2 SX at dealership being prepped for delivery.
Image

Im an Austrian[Croatian] living and working in Chiang Mai, Thailand already 12 years and ride big bikes for 4 years. Northern Thailand is ideal for big bikes as it has lots of nice twisty mountain roads, uncountable waterfalls and hot springs. Almost all year round rideable as its never too cold. Actually winter season is peak riding time. https://www.google.co.th/maps/place/Chi ... 7163?hl=en

I started with CBR250R and then progressed to CBR500R, CBR650F (2x), R6 2008, and FZ6 2010.
Usually the CBR650 has been my 'sport touring' choice but weight and power limitations made me consider a bigger bike.
R6 is my track bike and the FZ6 my daily city bike, riding to work and around town.

As supersport bikes like ZX10R or Fireblade arent made for my weight, nor are they comfortable for longer rides and even less suitable for rides with pillion. Note that im heavier with 105kg which strains bikes more. So as Kawasaki announced the H2 SX SE I ordered the same day one for me. Being able to ride comfortably, with a pillion and luggage, on a sport bike and having a supercharger as a plus is just unbelievable.

Challenge here was that until 1 week ago (7.feb) nobody knew which version of the bike will be actually imported into Thailand, so to my delight they import the SX SE. Price was fixed at 1090 000 THB (35k USD).

Even though my bike arrived to central Thailand service center already last week for final assembly and filling in all fluids, i hope they release it soon so i can pick it up. Apparently its being shipped to my dealership but im still waiting for their confirmation when i shall come in and pick it up this week.

Hope you all enjoy your SX or SX SE!
Tibor

CB1 is also rare here but used to be quite common.

So far no chance of it arriving before 1. March as import certification isn’t complete. Once that one is done they can import in bulk
