MCN, 16 December 2011 14:28

2012 Kawasaki ER-6n vs 2011 Kawasaki ER-6n

Jon Urry, 16 December 2011 10:31

Kawasaki’s ER-6n is one of the success stories of the naked middleweight class. Originally launched in 2006, this pleasingly quirky looking machine has won an army of fans thanks to its easy-going nature and light handling. Unlike some of its rivals, the ER has never pretended to be anything other than a budget middleweight with odd styling. Brash colours and ...

Adam Child, 08 December 2011 10:08

So does a four-cylinder adventure bike make any sense? On the strength of our world first ride of Kawasaki’s pioneering, Z1000-based Versys 1000, the answer is ‘Yes’… and ‘No’… The Versys 1000 has a superbly smooth and tractable engine, class-leading traction control, all-day comfort, and is the cheapest bike in its class. But its looks are controversial and I was ...

Kawasaki's supercharged ZZR1400 plans

Ben Purvis, 10 August 2011 14:11

Kawasaki is working on a supercharged four-cylinder bike as a replacement for the mighty ZZR1400. A flurry of new patent documents from the company show enough detail to suggest the idea of supercharging a new high-performance machine is far more than just an engineering exercise. Recent power increases in 1000cc superbikes, exemplified by the 190bhp BMW S1000RR, have created a ...

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. Not only is the W800 cheaper and better-specced than its closest Bonneville rival, the Kawasaki's uprated engine means there's now no discernible performance difference. brightcove.createExperiences();
