Kawasaki Reviews

Kawasaki emerged out of the ashes of the second World War to become one of the big players from Japan. In the late ’60s and early ’70s, Kawasaki built a reputation for some of the most powerful engines on two wheels, spawning legendary sportbikes like the Ninja series and a line of championship-winning off-road bikes.

2011 Supersport Shootout - Track [Video]

With Suzuki's new GSX-R600 getting rave reviews we figured it was high time to see how it compares to the rest of the 600cc sportbike class. Read on to see how the new Gixxer fares against the Honda CBR600RR, Kawasaki ZX-6R and Yamaha YZ-R6.

2011 Literbike Streetfighter Shootout

A finer collection of liter-sized standard motorcycles you’re unlikely to see. We pit Triumph’s revised Speed Triple, Kawasaki’s Z1000 and Honda’s new-to-the-USA CB1000R against each other in what we’re calling a Literbike Streetfighter Shootout.

2011 Gentlemen Sportbike Shootout

Here are three ways to satisfy a thirst for a powerful sportbike without the pretzel-ed legs and sore wrists: the Kawasaki Ninja 1000, Yamaha FZ1 and Suzuki GSX1250FA. Read on to see who wins this three-way battle.

The Best Literbike for the Street

We recently had to chance to pit Kawasaki's new Ninja 1000 against a Kawasaki ZX-10R that had been modified for greater comfort to try to figure out which bike offers the best combination of power, performance and comfort for everyday riding.

2011 250cc Beginner Bike Shootout

As far as bike tests go, we’re going to go out on a limb and say this is the most important one we'll do all year - and it's only February. We pit the Honda CBR250R, Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Hyosung GT250 against each other in a Beginner Bike shootout.

2011 Kawasaki KX250F Review

We were impressed with the Kawasaki KX250F at the press launch this past summer. We finally got a chance to spend time with Kawi’s motocrosser in the real world, and came away even more stoked! So far it’s at the top of our list for 250F of the year.

Top 10 Hottest Bikes of 2011

Now that Germany’s Intermot show and Italy’s EICMA exhibition are over, we’ve got a clear idea of the motorcycles that will be introduced over the next 12 months. We’ve whittled this list down to our 10 most anticipated bikes of 2011.

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.
