How do you like your Kawasaki Z-H2?

How does it compare to your H2?

What is the riding position like?

Is the bar reach similar to an H2 or longer or shorter?

Thx.

2015 H 2 is faster due to ECU Flash.
On both the throttle butterfly backs down to
60 % past 10,000 rpm.
Nobody has cracked the 2020 ZH 2 ECU, yet.
Low speed corners controllable on the ZH 2
The fancier TFT inst on the ZH 2 easier to read with more features. Even have lean angle display with max saved. I got down to 56 deg on Palomar when tagging the peg feelers and getting " all the tire " .

What is the riding position like?

ZH 2 more upright with bars above the tree.
I did modify some Rizoma bars to get 2 inches
higher on the 2015. The 2020 about 3 or 4 inches higher.

Is the bar reach similar to an H2 or longer or shorter?
The higher bars on the 2020 ZH 2 are also closer.

Thx.

That's all well and fine, but if top end is restricted and we're STILL locked out of the ECU.
On the 2020, the throttle backs down to 60 % open past 10 000 rpm.

As of a couple days ago it seems like Brock is giving up on ever cracking the ECU on this thing, that’s fuckin scary.
One reason I bought so many bikes in 2020 .
( 2019 bikes and some of the new model 2020 bikes. )
A lot of bikes affected that way, though the 2020 Duc V4s Street Fighter
and 2020 Aprilia RSV4 Tuono were able to slip under the wire.
The 2020 MV F 800 RC and Brutale came with a factory Race ECU and Full SC Exhaust
64379
Euro 5 , the EPA , and CARB the main cock blockers.
Looks like the unrestricted 2015 H 2 may be Top Dog in my garage for awhile.
2021 bikes like the Aprilia RS 660 and 2021 Busa may be a hard nut to crack.

And yet there are outfits like bren tuning out of boston that are flashing just about every 2021 euro5 superbike, bmw, honda, aprilia and ducati so far, with stunning results. The latest is the RSVR V4, they got 210rwhp on 93 pump gas.
I guess the japs are encrypting these ECU's at a level the aftermarket just cant get around, which would rule me out, if I cant open the intake, exhaust, remove every tube, sensor and plug and properly tune it, I dont want it.

I'll have to see if Bren has anything for the 2021 Aprilia RS 660 or Triumph Trident.
Also, have a 2021 Ducati 937 coming in this month ?
