During the British Supersport race at Brands Hatch on Sunday, Chris Martin’s Kawasaki motorcycle broke down, locking the rear wheel. The rider was thrown from the seat and sent bouncing way over the barrier during what has to be one of the most dangerous crashes of this racing season. In fact, this ended the season for Chris Martin, but he is expected back on two wheels next year.

Team Gearlink Kawasaki has issued a report regarding the crash:

Chris has suspected 3 broken vertebrae, will not know for sure until neck/back specialist has seen him. He has broken his ankle and will now be out of action for the rest of the season.....:-((

The video follows the jump.

There’s nothing quite like combining work with relaxation and during our short trip to Constanta, Romania we happen to come across a Kawasaki VN900 Police Bike, which simply couldn’t miss from our vacation picture album. I started sharing impressions about the bike with the policeman and then asked him if he was kind enough to let us get a few pics of the bike that he was so proudly riding and he was ok with it.

Apart from Harley-Davidson, we didn’t happen to see any cruiser type police bikes so this Kawi got our complete attention before another police officer radioed in a hazardous situation and our point of admiration hit the road with the sirens on.

When buying a motorcycle, some riders look for speed and others for comfort, but the most challenging part for motorcycle makers was to build one machine that meets these two requests. There you have the incredible Honda Goldwing meeting the comfort standards of even the most demanding riders, but you still have to earn enough money to buy and maintain such a model. The guy who did this to his Kawasaki Ninja clearly doesn’t, but we certainly can’t blame him for that. This is just an original way to make sure he still has a vertebral spine in his 70s.

Who among you will do the same thing to their sports motorcycle?

Apparently, this guy considers himself a smaller Shaq O’Neal and, so, it is inspired by the famous big guy’s jumps over cars and barbeques to pull out this very stupid and unsuccessful attempt to jump over a speeding Kawasaki Ninja. Now that’s a very nice way of making sure that your family jewels will never be productive again!

According to MotoRevue, Kawasaki plans to revamp their Z 1000 streetfighter, which will be soon presented.

The bike is supposed to be powered by the latest ZX-10R engine, replacing the one developed from the much older ZX-9R. The extra horsepower and torque sure has to be celebrated with a radical, even sharper design and this rendering by Jérôme Vannesson shows just how the next generation model might look. We can only hope it will do so.

The internet abounds with motorcycle riding guides, motorcycle riding tips as well as with advices for choosing the best motorcycle to start riding on, but some riders simply work with what they have and develop their own, more or less efficient, techniques for gaining those much needed skills.

Today, it’s all about maneuvering the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R at slow speed around the parking lot. Although it doesn’t sound dangerous (actually, it isn’t), most riders end up tipping their bikes over in the process so an innovative mind was needed. Apparently, the owner of this Kawi came with the oldest idea of them all – bolting on a pair of training wheels, which actually look genuine so I’m not asking where those came off from.

By looking at the rear tire, I can only be amazed by the fact that someone is actually riding that thing as such.

We’ve just spotted the unique opportunity (for your out there, of course) to get into drag racing. This here is a 7 sec 300+ horsepower turbo charged Kawasaki bracket racing bike and it is posted “for sale” on Youtube so if you were planning to go as a professional from the start, this is the perfect time to take action.

The video shows a few demo runs and also the owner’s phone number and e-mail in case you’re interested.

After releasing the Eliminator 125 from its duties, Kawasaki brings it back for 2009 as the entry level market share has lately become more and more demanding as a result of the economic situation affecting every single aspect of life and directing commuters towards cheap and fuel efficient two-wheeled products. The bike had paved road towards conquering this segment as the Eliminator name is big part of Kawi’s history so what we’re witnessing here is an opportunity grabbed without second thoughts.

It’s long been known that when beginning riders want to approach the cruiser style, Kawasaki offers a greatly balanced package under the Vulcan 500 LTD model name. We’re glad to find that in 2009, at least things haven’t changed for the worst as the bike carries on with a simple color scheme change that refreshes the overall look, helps the low seat stand out and corresponds with the attractive engine performance.
