Kawasaki didn’t invent the modern superbike category, but when the Japanese company launched the 903cc DOHC four-cylinder Z1 in 1973, it ignited a powder keg of excitement for high-performance liter-bikes that has never abated. Today the Ninja ZX-10R stands among the highest-performance production bikes ever built, and it bristles with technologies like ram-air induction, three-mode traction control and ABS. Yet there are plenty more Kawasaki motorcycle choices appealing to virtually everyone interested in riding. For instance, the little KLX110 gets the kids going off-road, while the mighty KX450F can take you to the starting gate of a Supercross race – assuming you can qualify! Other offerings include the beginner-friendly Ninja 300 sportbike, the Concours 14 ABS sport tourer, a wide range of Vulcan cruisers and tourers, and the perennial KLR dual-sport and KLX off-road playbikes.
