Kawasaki VN1700 Voyager takes on the baggers

Adam Child, 25 August 2011 11:01

The imposing bulk of Kawasaki's new VN1700 Voyager Custom has just landed on UK soil, sending a shudder through the large touring cruiser market. But how scared should the American competition be of the new V-twin? MCN embarked on two days of summer touring to find out, heading north from Peterborough then criss-crossing Yorkshire before ending in historic York. All ...

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 ...

Phil West, 16 March 2011 15:42

The new Kawasaki W800 has come out on top in MCN’s world first group test of the latest retro roadsters. The new Kawasaki is essentially a revival of the old W650 which was dropped from Kawasaki’s line-up in  2006.

Video: Kawasaki W800 first ride

MCN, 04 March 2011 10:27

Our first test of the new Kawasaki W800 suggests that Britain's own Triumph, after five years having things all its own way in the 'retro roadster' class, has a serious new rival on its hands.

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: Kawasaki ZX-10R takes on rivals

MCN, 03 February 2011 11:29

The 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R gets a host of changes for this year, including ABS and traction control. MCN has already tested the ZX-10R in isolation at Qatar where it was mightily impressive, but is it enough to see off the other 1000cc sports bikes and the awesome BMW S1000RR? We test the ZX-10R, S1000RR, Honda Fireblade, Yamaha R1 and Suzuki ...
