Video: Kawasaki Z1000 first ride

MCN, 28 November 2013 07:30

The Z1000 has been the most serious Japanese 'super naked' since 2003, and Kawasaki have determinedly reinvented it ever since. For 2014, it's re-styled and eschews electronics in favour of refinement, quality and value. It's a bold move and could be a clever one. brightcove.createExperiences();

Staff Blog: Not so naked now

Andy Davidson, 10 June 2013 17:02

I have finally fitted a screen from German firm MRA. The aftermarket plastic is not specifically designed for the Z800 but is a racing screen built for newer, aggressively-styled naked bikes. I fitted the screen in about 15 minutes with an Allen key and a screwdriver in the office car park. Everything smoothly slotted into place and the shield looks ...

Video: Riding Europe's finest retro bikes

Michael Neeves, 11 January 2012 14:41

German firm LSL are becoming famous for creating achingly-cool retro custom bikes, but for owner Jochen Schmitz-Linkweiler they’re merely a hobby – his real business is manufacturing accessories. When MCN visited LSL, we expected to find a small custom shop, but instead were welcomed into a 900 square meter, solar-powered factory turning out everything from handlebars to rearsets. So how ...

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 ...

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: 2009 Kawasaki ER-6n vs. Suzuki SV650 vs. Ducati Monster 696

MCN, 14 January 2009 12:00

The previous Kawasaki ER-6n was a great bike and didn't need much improving, but Kawasaki has made a few tweaks. The new revised version tested here has slightly changed fuelling, a revised chassis and slightly different looks. But how does it compare to its budget rivals, the Suzuki SV650 and Ducati Monster 696? http://link.brightcove.com/services/link/bcpid1119137831http://www.brightcove.com/channel.jsp?channel=711881422 // By use of this code snippet, ...

Head-to-head: New and old Kawasaki ZX-6R

Michael Neeves, 09 December 2008 17:44

I’ve just come in from riding the new 2009 Kawasaki ZX-6R against the old 2008 model and I’m flabbergasted. I won’t give too much away; you’ll have to read all about it in our full road test in the January 7 issue of MCN, but let me whet your appetite. Its styled to ape the ZX-10R and its proportions are ...
