I currently have a 2017 KTM Super Duke GT and am considering switching over to the SXSE. Here trawling for info.
I'm hoping we'll get some more actual ride reviews soon (not really a fan of Visor Down) and I'm pretty lame so, only speak english... kinda.

KTM's electronic suspension is a bit of a mess for light people. KTM's MO with settings and general attitude is pretty meh. The bags are a super weird size. I've always been a fan of Kawasaki (but have never owned one) and, I LOOOOVE superchargers.
I switch bikes every 2 or 3 years to avoid too much depreciation but I'm still looking for a good sport touring bike. I think the H2 SX SE will be too heavy for what I like to do (I basically want a sport bike with comfy ergos, range and, cruise control) so, I'm waiting for reviews from publications that I actually trust. I used to be subscribed to Visor Down on youtube but, they're too ad-heavy in their content so, I don't really trust them. They were basically the mouthpiece for manufacturers and I'm not a fan of that. Motorcycle.com is kinda going that way too now.
I can get 220 ish mile out of a tank on my GT (when I'm not being ridiculous) and I'm hoping that ~200 will be possible with the H2 SX but, again, depends on reviews and people's experiences. I may end up waiting for the 2019 model - I'd love to see Kawasaki do electronic suspension as well (it's super 1st world problems) since that makes a sport touring bike a lot more practical. Basically - on any given ride, you could have luggage and/or a passenger, keeping your pre-load clicks recorded and correct is confusing for me.

Generally I've only owned one bike at a time with a couple of exceptions and, I haven't always bought new (hence the overlap in years) but, I generally do.
I've got a fair bit of experience with electronic suspension and sport touring bikes. Based on that experience, IMO KTM's WP suspension is crap and, I hate "adventure styled" sport touring bikes. My favorite was the Ohlins on the 2012 Multistrada and KTM's is my least favorite.
