MCN, 26 December 2013 08:00

There is only the bus’s burp of diesel smoke and a question left to consider: Was that really a Kawasaki KR750? It ...

Video: Kawasaki Versys 1000 onboard

MCN, 16 December 2011 14:28

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 four-cylinder motor is retuned for more bottom end and midrange and it sure is smooth. In addition, the Versys’s three-way adjustable traction control system, which is derived from those of ...

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.

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();
