    Can't be long now!

    Have you had an insurance quote?

    Whenever I get a quote. They ask...

    Is it supercharged? turbocharged? Sidecar fitted?

    Don’t need a quote. I have a Rider Policy so am insured to ride an unlimited number of bikes.I don’t even have to inform them when I change bikes, which is handy !

    It’s a whopping £177 per year though ! 🤣

    That's rather handy.
    But I guess you need to be living in Guernsey to get a quote.

    Strangely enough,yes,as we don't have scum nicking bikes every 5 mins so quotes are more realistic.

    Interesting dyno comparison, no surprise given the extra capacity of the ZZR I guess, also is the H2 SX lighter than the ZZR ?

    That is rather surprising - ZZR is not exactly cutting-edge! I’ve been thinking about an Sx as a change from my superduke gt - I think a test may now be needed

    I was looking at it at Bike week Daytona. Kawasaki had a great stand and we spent a lot of time there but no test rides offered. I only thought afterwards if I asked them they would probably have given me one. It worked with Boss Hoss.
    I am a Kawasaki nut but not a fan of the new styling, I never warmed to the ZZR1400.
    I honestly cannot see how it will blow away a mildly tuned ZX12R (thrill wise) for 5 grand. If you can use more power than the last one i owned. Lift the front wheel in second and scream to the horizon to 190 in fifth, I would just love to give one a blast around the Ring, or maybe better to leave it past tense.

    That sounds a great policy,who are you insured with.I have eight bikes but have only four insured at any one time.

    Had a 4 hour mini stop over in Jersey this afternoon on the way to St Malo.
    Popped into local Kwak dealer and they insisted I take out their H2 SX for a few hours even though it’s not officially on demo yet.
    My bike was ordered through then as my Guernsey dealer is currently just a satellite dealer for Jersey.
    Funny enough ,my bike was arriving at home today just as I set off on a 10 day trip .

    Anyway , first impressions very good . Obviously Jersey is like Guernsey with crap speed limit and mostly ‘town driving ‘.

    The bike feels very planted and stable . Not as heavy as a ZZR but much more ‘solid’ than a sports bike .

    Suspension seems very compliant and supple . Riding position is very roomy and not too wristy.

    Good brakes . Quickshifter works great under load but a bit snatchy at lower revs.

    The TFT is very good , giving four display options including throttle position/boost pressure/lean angle etc .

    Finally the motor - wow !!! Very very smooth and torquey . Get it above 6 k and it really flies , sounding amazing with the supercharger chirping as the blades go supersonic.

    Looking forward to picking mine up !!
