The Kawasaki Ninja 650 is one of the most wanted motorcycles in its class and the 2014 model year continues to impress us with its bullet proof built quality, modern technologies and great handling.

The 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 650 is propelled by a strong and compact 649 cc, twin-cylinder engine with semi-dry sump. Its power is kept in leash by a modern six speed transmission that delivers smooth and precise shifts.

The motorcycle needed a perfect compromise between stability and the ability to swallow shocks without “killing” the rider’s back.

The stopping power is assured by dual 300mm front petal-shaped brake rotors with twin-piston calipers and a single 220mm rear petal-shaped rotor.

Meet the new ICON Spec 32 Eboz Edition - a special model that was created to mark the company’s entrance in the 2013 TTXGP series. This Special Edition also celebrates the inclusion of Eric Bostrom on Team ICON Brammo.

The new model is offered in a limited run of only 32 units and comes with an orange/blue livery. The 32 number represents the Eric Bostrom’s race number and can be also seen on the motorcycle’s body.

Talking about the body, the 2013 Brammo / ICON Spec 32 comes with color coded wheel trim, a stainless steel plaque with the unique bike number and a laser cut EBoz signature. You also get a Bostrom Icon Airmada signature helmet painted in the same colors as the motorcycle.

The company says that apart from the style modifications, the special edition also features a slightly tweaked motor which offers “crisper throttle response and sharper regenerative braking as well as a bit more power.”

Icon’s Media Coordinator Joe Gustafson said: “As title sponsor, of Team Icon Brammo, we have the ability to design a great graphic instead of a great compromise. If this was traditional motorsports, there would be just too many variables to design a truly striking piece of artwork.”

Mr. Gustafson added: “There is no playbook for electric motorcycling, so both organizations are completely uninhibited to try a variety of different things. With Brammo, this is shown by their design leadership in the industry by creating world- beating electric motorcycles, and then racing them against their gasoline counterparts – which no other electric brand is doing. On our end, it’s in offering gear that is industry leading in both design and function, and bringing that into the racing atmosphere.”

The Brammo / ICON Spec 32 Eboz Edition is offered with a price tag of $19,995.
