Kawasaki has just unveiled this significantly new Z1000 super naked at the Milan Show. Although not completely new – the basic engine and chassis are unchanged, for example – Kawasaki’s super naked has received a raft of changes to the powertrain, chassis, equipment and, most obviously, styling which effectively renders it an all-new machine.

WK 650i: the first big bike from China

Phil West, 27 July 2012 16:23

The Chinese motorcycle industry has been churning out big, big numbers for a long time – over 50% of the world’s motorcycles are built there after all. Until now, however, they’ve often been small capacity copies; scooters and learner bikes built for commuters yet dismissed by true enthusiasts as cheap and poor quality.

Harley-Davidson Softail Slim first ride

Phil West, 17 February 2012 15:34

Considering the turmoil Harley-Davidson has been through the last couple of years, what with plummeting US sales, the MV and Buell shockers and the little matter of having to restructure fundamentally its main production facillity, it’s more than a little encouraging that the American legend has any new models at all for 2012.

Phil West, 26 December 2011 15:00

Victory’s new ‘Hard-Ball’

Phil West, 12 December 2011 11:22

This is Victory’s new 2012 Hard-Ball – created by blending the American  firm’s recent High-Ball cruiser and its Cross Country pannier-equipped tourers.

The bike will be available only in black with red pinstripes and ...
