Kawasaki Ninja 1000

Kawasaki ninja

Kawasaki Ninja 1000 is the biggest-selling Motorcycle in the UK for the past decade, and a top-selling sports-tourer bike for at least the past three years in Europe.

The Ninja 1000SX takes over the Z’s fantastical mix of sporty style, productive power and undemanding versatility, then fixes a few of its weaknesses.

The most important single change is handling – the Z1000SX had dull steering at low speed and dropped hesitantly into turns, mainly on its OE tyres.

Kawasaki Ninja H2

The Kawasaki H2 is one of the Fastest Motorcycle in the World which can hit the top speed of 200mph. It is visually pleasing, and its sounds are ridiculous.

The level of shine and quality on the H2 is some of the greatest I’ve ever seen on a production road bike. Some won’t like the dynamic fuelling and performance in the first few types of equipment. But then those people shouldn’t be holding a £22,000 supercharged sportbike.
