When it comes to power-to-weight ratios, motorcycles are on a whole other level than cars. 200ish horsepower might make for a reasonably quick car (think Honda Civic Si), but in a motorcycle, 200 horsepower is an absolutely bonkers figure. That's part of what makes the 201-hp 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX and it's 2.8 pounds-per-pony so impressive (we're talking Bugatti Veyron power ratios here). That and the bright green paint.
This is the third supercharged motorcycle from the Japanese manufacturer, following on the H2 and H2R. According to Asphalt and Rubber, the model comes in two flavors, the black H2 SX and the green H2 SX SE. The SE comes with a thin TFT color dash, cornering lights, launch control and a quickshifter.

Yu Kobayashi scored twice as Kawasaki Frontale took a significant step towards the last four of the Asian Champions League with a 3-1 home win over J-League rivals Urawa Reds in the first leg of their quarterfinal tie on Wednesday night.
Kobayashi, the two-goal hero in Kawasaki's 4-1 hammering of Reds in the league here last month, opened the scoring in the 33rd minute with a well-taken strike and Elsinho grabbed their second early in the second half.
