    Road test : Kawasaki Z800

    “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”.

    You’ve heard this before, I’m sure – but there also is such a thing as too much power, although oligarchs, dictators and racers will try to convince you otherwise. The world’s quickest motorcycles are only as quick as the rickshaw moving over in our country, so a middleweight motorcycle will make more sense. That’s the role that the Kawasaki Z800 hopes to play; it is the voice of reason in the insane world of the CBU motorcycle in the Indian marketplace. But does its sanity make a good enough case to pass up the extra 200cc and the frills that come along with it?

  • Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R - a numbers game

    Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R - a numbers game


    This is a power figure we’re usually excited about when it is quoted in a car’s spec sheet. When it shows up on a motorcycle’s spec sheet, it is cause for worry. But the good kind, because you’re sure you will discover the urban legend of Enough Power. The ZX-14R quotes more than 200bhp from its engine.


    Most cars are limited to this speed. It is a speed that we don’t see often, regardless of the vehicle we’re in or on. The ZX-14R is just getting into its stride at this speed. 


    Besides being a popular movie name, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R can eclipse this speed as well if it is delimited. And it can outrun more than a few supercars while it gets there. That’s what makes it the fastest production motorcycle in the world.

  • Kawasaki Z1000 - Alien v/s Predator

    Kawasaki Z1000 - Alien v/s Predator

    The mere mention of a four-cylinder, 1000cc motorcycle makes me go weak in the knees. The feeling of being perched on a missile with no guidance control other than your vision and your ability to steer, stop or go is frightening… but absolute power corrupts absolutely, so when I was handed the keys to the alien-looking Z1000, all I did was say a small prayer and hop on. You only live once, after all.
