Kane Friesen is a Canadian stunt rider and the current record holder of the world’s fastest nose wheelie after managing to lift the rear end of his 2006 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R at the amazing speed of 137 mph and then coming to a complete stop. The previous record of 98 mph was set by Gary Rothwell in 2002, but like the wheelie master himself says: “my personal goal is 135 mph to set the bar so high up that no other rider wants to even attempt it any time soon.”

Former professional body piercer, Kane’s longest wheelie was of 12 miles, while he’s fastest stoppie measures more than 900ft.

Kawasaki has recently posted two videos about their top 2010 motocross models, the KX250F and KX450F, on their official Youtube channel. These are actually video previews by Jeff Emig, who takes viewers through the most important features of these bikes. While Kawi’s quarter-liter motocrosser has been seriously improved, the KX450F is a totally new bike. Enjoy the videos.

If you’re a married biker, you better hide this from your wife because you might just get into trouble if caught looking at it.

Indeed, Kawasaki motorcycles are know to be very “satisfying”, but I guess nobody thought at this before.

Kawasaki Love Positions? If there’s a girl involved, I’m in.

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.
