Our man Andrew Fails makes a compelling argument about why the Suzuki SV650 is the best all-around bike to be had. Only one problem: He’s wrong, at least according to me. I say it’s actually Kawasaki’s venerable workhorse, the KLR650. I know, because I rode one for a dozen years until being seduced by the siren song…
Given that 88 mph is 141 KMH, it’s really no surprise that Doc Brown and the legendary time-traveling DeLorean were “pulled over” by Japanese traffic police in a Skyline GT-R in a traffic safety demonstration put on by the Yokohama Toyota dealer network.
After a suspect in a police chase damaged a fellow motorist’s motorcycle while attempting to steal it, Kawasaki arranged to have a brand-new bike sent to the rider. The bike isn’t the same brand as his old one and took some street fighting with a police suspect in order to get it, but hey—a free bike is a free bike,…
This weekend, the World Superbike racing series went to the Chang International Circuit in Thailand for their second round. The first race of the weekend was a good one, but the second one proved that this series can be just as enthralling as MotoGP. Why are you not watching it?
Sorry Honda, but your Grom will live no longer as the only option for miniature sized racing, stunting, and all around mini-motorcycle awesomeness. Kawasaki is bringing its Z125 Pro stateside.
Kawasaki put the world on notice last October when they announced a major refresh to the ZX-10R superbike, which it claimed would make a whopping 207 horsepower and have an industry-leading electronics package. At the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia I worried I’d kill myself on it. Turns out I didn’t have much to worry…
Last week, I flew for 42 hours in five days so I could get a few laps on the new Kawasaki ZX-10R at the Sepang Circuit outside of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The review is on the way, and now’s your chance to get your questions in.
Motorcycles require their riders to accept various levels of risk to bask in the immense glory and pleasure they provide. We all choose varying levels of risk based on where and when we ride, what we wear when we ride, and, most importantly, what we choose to ride.
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) is easily the most batshit insane motorcycle race in the United States. The 12.42-mile long course is where the fastest and craziest among us go to compete against both fellow man and mountain as they ride to the top of the 14,110 foot summit. But this year, many of them…
Kawasaki says its Z800 is huge in Europe. The bike is “part sportbike, part commuter,” and is supposed to leave everyone satisfied. Fundamentally it felt solid and well-engineered, but after a couple hours in the saddle I found myself struggling with the concept; is this actually “one bike for multiple jobs,” or is it…
Last month, we brought you news of Kawasaki’s all new ZX-10R superbike. Now, the Japanese firm has released a video diving into all those amazing little details that could put it atop its class.
Suzuki showed a turbocharged motorcycle engine. Kawasaki a supercharged bike that’s definitely not the flagship H2R, and Yamaha a leaning three-wheeled trike. But, what’s it all mean? Let’s explore the bikes (and more) of the Tokyo Motor Show.
Kawasaki released this terrible, I mean amazing teaser video for their Grom competitor, the new Z125, and they’re gonna hit Honda where it hurts: in the clutch.
The guys over at Kawasaki got so sick of having to wait until the wee hours of the morning to ride their Groms that they went out and made their own. Meet the Kawasaki Z125.
After last year’s Kawasaki H2 and H2R, it’s hard to think that Kawasaki already have another supercharged bike up their sleeves, but Japanese magazine Young Machine seems to think otherwise. Please, please, please be right.
Kawasaki just released news of the newest iteration of the ZX-10R superbike which pairs a class leading 207 horsepower powerplant with a cutting edge electronics package. If that isn’t enough to get you excited about it, this video will help.
The superbike segment was put on notice this morning. Kawasaki may be a little late in the game, but they’re here now and have a bike with world-class technology and 207 horsepower. Because fuckin’ race bike.
Riding the Isle of Man fast takes some serious cojones. Riding the Isle of Man fast on a race bike takes serious cojones and a whole lot of skill. Riding the Isle of Man fast on a 300 hp, supercharged Kawasaki H2R - that takes cojones, skill, and a whole lot of crazy.
In terms of looks, if a DC-8 and a P-3 ever drank too much high octane fuel and had a steamy one-night stand, the Kawasaki P-1 would be born nine months later. Japan’s home-made and high-tech multi-mission maritime patrol aircraft is a purpose-built weapon system with a lot going for it, and Japan hopes potential…
Young British Superbikes racer Taylor Mackenzie has crashed before, but holy crap the guy’s bike just burst into flames while he was hard-charging through a corner. Watch it in slow-mo below and make sure your headphones are on because the commentators are hilarious.
