Techy Kawasaki Versys 1000 is dark horse of class

Phil West, 17 November 2011 11:45

Despite its derivative styling and the impression of parts sourced from other bikes, Kawasaki’s new entrant into the adventure bike class is much more than a Z1000 in new clothes, MCN can now reveal. In fact, with switchable traction control, ABS, switchable power modes, easily adjustable screen and suspension and impressive tank and luggage capacity, the new Versys 1000 is ...

Kawasaki ER-6n revamped

Ben Purvis, 10 October 2011 14:00

Kawasaki’s ER-6n has been heavily updated for 2012 as these pictures show. The naked middleweight shares mechanical components with the faired ER-6f and gets the same changes as that bike, including a new twin-tube steel frame, new swingarm, retuned engine and revised seating position. The bodywork has gained better-defined angles and curves and the headlight and instrument panel have become ...

Kawasaki's VN1700 'bagger' rolls into UK

Trevor Franklin, 05 August 2011 09:56

The new, chopped-down, touring VN1700 Voyager Custom is the third bike in Kawasaki's Voyager line-up to hit the UK and neatly fills a gap between the fully-dressed touring Voyager and laid-back, unfaired Classic. Effectively it's jumping on the 'bagger' bandwagon - a bagger being a cruiser with panniers (bags) and decent comfort. That means you can have your cake and ...

John Westlake, 03 March 2011 17:27

Kawasaki has revealed they expect their new W800 retro to attract younger buyers.

Staff bikes: Kawasaki GPz550 - 'I want to throw it in the river'

Steve Farrell, 14 February 2011 10:42

Sometimes fixing bikes can be almost as satisfying as riding them. But lately I’ve felt like dumping my £300 ‘bargain’ GPz550 in the river. Which is where much of it appears to have come from. More competent fettlers have completed nut and bolt restorations in the time it’s taken me to get the back brake to work. It began when ...

Video: Bike vs car drift race

John Westlake, 14 January 2011 11:01

There's plenty of bike drifting on Youtube, but here's some with large walls nearby and a big car following close behind. At several points the rider the drag-prepped Kawasaki ZX-10R takes a hand off the bars or good measure. All very IAM. Enjoy.
