    2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R First Ride Review

    If you are stuck in the city amongst crawling traffic with the ambient temperature over 37 degrees and you having donned full leathers, well the 2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R can be quite a pain. I know what you are thinking – any big bike in such a situation would be awful, and I agree.

  • 2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R First Ride Review

    2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R First Ride Review

    The new for 2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R is different things to different people. For the bookkeepers, the 14R is the bike that blew the legendary Suzuki Hayabusa off its pedestal by beating it in top speed stakes. For the hardcore litre class race replica enthusiasts, the ZX14R is simply their wheels of retirement. For someone like me, who hasn’t ridden the 14R before, it is intimidating, scary even. Why? Because it makes 200bhp, goes from 0-100kmph in less than three seconds, hits a top speed of 300kmph and it is the size of a car! Frightening? You bet.

  • Kawasaki Versys 650 vs Benelli TNT 600GT: Comparison Test

    Kawasaki Versys 650 vs Benelli TNT 600GT: Comparison Test

    The similarities here are uncanny. A half fairing. High-rise handlebar. Large fuel tank. Stepped, wide seat. And chunky but handy rear grab-rails. And there’s more. Underneath that touring façade lays a street naked; be it the chassis, the brakes or the tyres. Even the engine, in fact.

    Welcome then to our new age sports Tourers.

    Kawasaki Versys 650 First Ride Review

    The Versys 650 is Kawasaki’s answer to the growing demands of India’s touring fraternity. It is essentially the Ninja 650’s touring cousin but is more focussed towards serious tourers. The Versys, as a brand, didn’t get lot of recognition since its introduction a year ago with the 1000, but Kawasaki is hoping to change the “This bike is not practical for India” perception to “This bike makes sense for India” with the Versys 650.

    Honda CBR650F vs Kawasaki Z800 : Comparison Test

    There was a time when we used to beg Indian two-wheeler manufacturers to bring in their middle-weight motorcycles to India. While some of them didn’t pay heed, few others got down to serious business. Honda and Kawasaki were the good ones.

    2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R First Look Review

    Kawasaki, as we know, likes coming up with a grand slam every once in a while and for years, the Japanese firm has proudly let loose its high-end range of motorcycles under the iconic Ninja brand. Sitting somewhere in the midst of this high-end range is the latest-gen ZX-10R a.k.a. Kawasaki’s flagship super sport offering that’s been around since 2011.

  • Yamaha YZF-R3 vs Kawasaki Ninja 300 vs Honda CBR250R: Spec comparison

    Yamaha YZF-R3 vs Kawasaki Ninja 300 vs Honda CBR250R: Spec comparison

    Kawasaki enjoyed an illustrious status in India for a long time, thanks to the monopoly of the Ninja 250R. However, competition from the fuel-injected Honda CBR250R meant that the Kawasaki had to up the ante with the Ninja 300. Now though, Yamaha is threatening to shake things up in the entry-level sportsbike segment, with the all-new YZF-R3. Despite being late to the party, the YZF-R3 seems like a well-balanced package, thanks to its powerful engine, modern ergonomics and the lucrative price tag. Till we get our hands on the Ninja 300, YZF-R3 and the CBR250R for a head to head shootout, here is a spec comparison of these entry-level sportsbikes, to see how they stack up against each other.

  • 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000

    2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000

    A machine is developed for a reason. It could either make your life easy by easing your job or could make your life hell, by taking away your job. But there are some machines that could add some excitement to your life and the Versys 1000 was developed for the same. But do we really need a bike this big? Well, the answer would have been a straight no, if this article was being published in 2000 but over the last few years, things have changed drastically. I have put on a lot of weight and my mum still doesn’t like my tea. But on a serious note, things have really changed for motorcycle enthusiasts in terms of overall infrastructure. Additional perks are better and well-laid out roads and befriending technology.

  • Kawasaki ER6n

    Kawasaki ER6n

    August 9, 2012: I was riding motorcycles for fun, and had a lot less body fat but a little more body hair than today. The only reason why I vividly remember body hair as on that day is because it was a hair-raising day for me.  Bajaj Auto, (India Kawasaki hadn't formed until then) had launched the Kawasaki Ninja 650R at Rs 4.99 lakh ( ex showroom Delhi). This was the first step into value for money larger capacity motorcycling for many enthusiasts. It was also the mark of an event that would lead Kawasaki’s attention towards India, and offer more premium motorcycles here in the days to come.

  • India Exclusive : Kawasaki Z250

    India Exclusive : Kawasaki Z250

    Not every day an email pops up, which makes you realise the amount of fun you will have over the weekend. This happened to me last week, when India Kawasaki Motors asked me to pick up their new bike, the Z250 from their factory in Akurdi. I was excited, very excited! The reason was the inclusion of the alphabet “Z”, which recently has found home in the Indian super bike segment.  I am talking about the famed “Z” series motorcycles from Kawasaki.  In a matter of 12 months, India Kawasaki Motors launched two highly successful motorcycles – the Z1000 and the Z800. When we reviewed it, we came out very impressed and that had set the tone for the Z250 review, which is based on the bigger “Z” motorcycles.
