ninja h2 sx

Supercharge your journey - Ninja H2 SX For its second supercharger challenge, Kawasaki brings the unique sensory experience of a supercharged engine to the sport tourer category with the new Ninja H2 SX SE and Ninja H2 SX.

ninja zx10r

Shock news - Ninja ZX-10R SE The standard bike has been a hit with riders the world over and with its track focused spec, the ZX-10RR has been dominant in WorldSBK. Now, they’re joined by the ZX-10R SE, which boasts state-of-the-art electronic suspension. Innovative Electronics Dubbed KECS or “Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension”, it is a semi - active system for both the front fork and the rear damper.

z 900

Z900: Now unleashed for A2 riders Thanks to its no-nonsense attitude, aggressive Sugomi styling and engaging riding experience, the Z900 has been a sales success over the last 12 months and for 2018 Kawasaki is able to offer the same willing, responsive ride experience to A2 licence holders with the introduction of a new 70kW Z900.

hello

It’s 1am and bucketing down. Lamp-lit Italian streets are awash with flood water and littered with leaves, and I’m tip-toeing over shiny cobbles back to a quiet hotel after the closing fanfare of Ducati’s 2018 World Premiere. It’s EICMA week in Milan: new bikes, stunning light shows, enthusiastic speeches. None more so than Ducati’s, who held their event on the stage of the Italian X Factor. Same director, too. You can read about their new flagship V4 on page 40. No other journalist at the bash had braved the rain and arrived by bike, let alone ridden over the Stelvio Pass on the trip down. See how BMW’s high-tech new R1200GS managed it on page 32. Tomorrow evening are the Yamaha and Honda events, where the huge story will undoubtedly be the…

Hugo Wilson This month: It must be a special motorcycle if the editor actually volunteers to clean it himself, but after 5000 miles with the Ducati SuperSport we’re all very taken with it. Well, except for the mirrors. High mileage insight on page 94 Mike Armitage This month: An engineer by training, and a massively experienced bike tester, Mike’s insight and analysis of the new bikes from EICMA is essential reading. And he’s open minded enough to rate the Kawasaki Vulcan too. New bikes page 29, Vulcan page 78 Ben Lindley This month: As we put the magazine together in Peterborough, young Ben is motoring back up through Germany, on his way back from the EICMA show. The Stelvio pass in November is a decent test of the updated BMW R1200GS. Ride to Milan on page 32 Jonathan Pearson This…
