It’s really not hard to enjoy the new Versys 1000 , especially when it comes with a combination of modern cutting-edge style with Kawasaki’s exclusive engineering style. You’ll also get the ultimate style and great flexibility in the multi-purpose Versys 1000. Yeah, the bike is that awesome.

The spacious color-coded panniers allow you to have a whole lot of trunk space. Plus, there’s a tank pad that makes your Versys 1000 Grand Tourer a really attractive Grand Tourer bike.

At the heart of this vehicle, there’s a liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve 1,043 cm3 in-line four engine with a bore and stroke of 77.0 x 56.0 mm that is useful for bringing a strong low-mid range torque with smooth power release. When compared to the Z1000, the Versys 1000’s engine brings a stronger low-mid range with the reduced peak power and both peak power and torque happen at lower rpm.

As far as user ability and functionality is concerned, the Versys 1000 has that covered too, thanks to a tough-design multi-function instrumentation with an analog-style tachometer and LCD with speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer, clock, dual trip meters, current and average fuel consumption, remaining range, and external air temperature.

Enjoy your riding with this exclusive and modern Versys 1000 Grand Tourer.

Kawasaki is celebrating an important milestone in their company’s history, paying homage to the 40th anniversary of its Z family of motor bikes.

The Japanese motorcycle brand has released the Limited Edition Z40 Chronograph, which will be launched at the Intermot Motorcycle Show in Germany on October 2, 2012. The watch bears some unique features, a lot of which were inspired by Kawasaki’s Z family.

The stainless steel composition of the Z40 Chronograph was made by Austrian manufacturer Hirsch. The design carries some inspiration from the 1972 Z1, complete with an iconic paint and graphic treatment. Even the face of the watch features Kawasaki’s original logo wit a Z1 DOHC side panel badge. On the other side, you’ll see a Z40 logo with the watch edition number, a true testament to its special edition designation. Last, the Z40 Chronograph also has a four-dial chronograph/tachymeter function and is water resistant up to 5 ATM.

Only 903 pieces of this watch will be made with each priced at €207.06 ($267.45 at current exchange rates). If you’re wondering why the ambiguous number, 903 represents the engine size of the Z1: 903cc. Each watch will carry a certificate of authenticity and will be made available exclusively to the European market.

If you’re looking for a championship-caliber sports bike, look no further than the Kawasaki KX65. At the heart of the Kawasaki KX65 is a powerful two-stroke engine, a lightweight chassis, disc brakes, and long travel suspension to bring the strong power that enables you to compete and even win whatever race you decide to enter.

The KX65’s liquid-cooled, 64cc engine is able to bring an impressive level of power for its small displacement while the smooth-shifting transmission and manual clutch controls the transfer of that power into the ground. Furthermore, the KX65 comes with a semi-double-cradle steel frame that has been fitted with Kawasaki’s legendary Uni-Trak linkage system, allowing it to change power on the rear shock as the suspension is compressed.

As far as handling is concerned, the KX65 comes with both shock and fork four-way adjustable rebound damping. Meanwhile, the lightweight black aluminum rims lessen the unsprung weight to enhance the suspension action bring the same impressive look as the rims on the larger KX models. Both wheels are then fitted with hydraulic disc brakes to ensure great stopping power.

Deus Customs is a motorcycle tuning company based in Australia that specializes in building custom bikes for custom people. One of their recent creations is the French Connection, a custom-made bike that was built and designed specifically for Moto GP1 star, Randy De Puniet.

For this bike, De Puniet wanted something that could pass as a middleweight, 2-up, twin-type that is versatile enough to hit the city streets while having enough durability to last during those out-of-town trips.

To get the bike up-to-character, Deus painted the Kawasaki W650-based French Connection bike with an orange, white, and black paint finish. The tuning firm also dressed up the rims and hubs in a black satin film while fitting in a vintage style headlight that supports the tachometer.

Deus also tweaked the bike’s performance set-up, working around its 649cc engine and putting new K&N filters and a custom 2-into-2 system. The company also modified the forks before dressing up the front and rear guards in a pair of Firestone tires.

All in all, we think that Randy De Puniet enjoyed his new custom bike. As far as we’re concerned, the name by itself - the French Connection - is enough for us to notice it.
