Thinking of H2 SX SE

Post by atc250r » Sat Feb 15, 2020 1:42 am


Hey Fellas, first post here. Current ride is a BMW K1600GT, but I’d really like to consider switching to a SX SE, but I don’t have any dealer near me that will let me ride one. They don’t have demos, and don’t want to let me ride their showroom bike unless I basically guarantee to buy it. I hate dealers like that, so safe to say they won’t get my business. Anyway, I plan to research these bikes and see if it would be right for me.

I honestly bought mine without test riding it. No regrets at all. It's a fantastic bike all around.

I can only see three possible negatives. 1) the windscreen is not electronically adjustable; 2) slightly compressed/forward riding position; and 3) pillion is not going to be as comfortable. I would expect the H2 SX to be slightly more reliable, but require a bit more frequent maintenance. If you like to run a lot of serious electronics, the H2 SX only generates 420watts compared to the K1600GT's 700. If none of that is a deal killer, get the H2 SX!

If you said where you were, there might be someone in your area that would let you borrow theirs for a short ride.

Really depends what you want from it.

It is what it is, a good sports tourer. Had mine nearly a year, bought with no test ride, I’m happy.

It’s not the worlds greatest tourer, there are others with better comfort and luggage and pillion set ups. It’s not a monster, you’re not going to turn it into a H2, and a few have had engine failure trying. It’s not great value if your on a budget the touring Ninja 1000 has a lot of the SX’s kit this year.

What it is is a great inbetween bike. It go’s well, handles well, has an OK screen, luggage and cruise control, will cover a lot of ground and have fun doing it and it has a lot of good toys and features.

If you’re more focused on either sports or touring, there are better bikes, but after several Busa’s, and testing a few other bikes, I couldn’t find a better one at doing what the H2 SX SE does.
