On the outside, the Z H2 features a very unique and unconventional design. Its green steel trellis frame houses engine as a stressed member and gives the overall design a menacing touch. The bike is featured in colour options including Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Graphite Grey.

Apart from this, it comes kitted with 290 mm dual discs with Brembo M4.32 monobloc callipers (front) and a 226 mm single disc with a two-piston calliper (rear).

In terms of electronics and features, the bike gets Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), Kawasaki Launch Control (KLCM), Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS), electronic cruise control, riding modes (Sport, Road, Rain, Rider) and much more.
