2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero Review

Team Green enters the bagger cruiser segment with the Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero, filling the gap between small cruisers and large full touring models. It’s something of a transitional model for riders of smaller displacement or more basic cruisers.

2010 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Voyager Review

If the idea of a luxurious V-Twin touring rig appeals to your wanderlust for the open road, Kawasaki’s Voyager delivers the segment’s best bang for the buck. Harley-Davidson’s Road Glide Ultra seems like the Voyager’s closest competition.

2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R Review

For 2011 Kawasaki outfitted the ZX-10R with traction control, power modes and ABS, along with a health boost in power. Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha had better step up their game ASAP or risk a shrinking profile in the literbike wars.

2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 Review - First Ride

For riders who aren’t interested in trackdays, the new Kawasaki Ninja 1000 makes more sense than a racer with lights. It's virtually a racer anyway, just slightly less focused than a ZX-10R, but with improved bottom end power, and friendlier ergos.

2011 Kawasaki KLR650 Review

The KLR 650 has been the top-selling dual-sport bike forever. For thousands less than other big dualies this is a competent, reliable bike that you can maintain yourself, get parts for easily and it will haul your adventurous butt to just about anywhere.

2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero Preview

2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R Unveiled

We’ve seen it, sat on it, and heard it run! Kawasaki’s 2011 ZX-10R is a potent new literbike weapon. This might just be the most important sportbike to be introduced this year, but does it have the stuff to topple the BMW S1000RR?

2010 Bennche Megelli 250R vs. Kawasaki Ninja 250R

Kawasaki’s Ninja 250R and Bennche’s Megelli 250R are as different as can be. One’s been around as the only offering in its class since before some of its aspiring sportbike buyers were even born, and the other is a brand new upstart.

2010 Kawasaki Ninja 250R Review

Does Kawasaki’s Ninja 250R even need an introduction? Since receiving a makeover in 2008, the Ninja has continued its legacy as a top seller. As the only Japanese 250 imported to the U.S., the Ninja 250R is a class act that’s in a class by itself.

2011 Kawasaki KX450F Review - First Impressions

It looks like the KX450F is another model in a line of Kawasaki motocross bikes that is going to kick some wholesale booty. And since the Honda CRF450F and Yamaha YZ450F are in a state of suspended animation for 2011, sales should be strong.

2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R Preview
