The Kawasaki Ninja 650R is an all-around sportsbike that combines good looks with user-friendly performance capabilities and excellent handling. All those three qualities in one package is enough to be a believer in the Kawasaki sportsbike.

The 650R offers everything you need in a sports bike: a sporty and aggressive design, a stout chassis, upstanding performance capabilities, and a carefully-tuned suspension system. The Ninja’s slim structure is due to its compact 8-valve 649cc parallel-twin engine, which permits the use of a narrow, lightweight frame. The fuel injection and ignition settings are tuned to boost the liquid-cooled engine’s bottom-end torque, allowing the bike to rev quicker at all times.

Sportsbikes have always been made to with the one credo in mind: look good and be powerful. That’s exactly what Kawasaki has with the Ninja 650R. It’s got a stunning sporty design that catches attention and a powertrain that comes with premium performance capabilities.

Really, what more do you want?

Famous for building some of the world’s most powerful sportsbikes, Yamaha has never been one to sit on their laurels. That’s why they’ve built the new Yamaha FZ1 , a cutting edge sportsbike that features state-of-the-art engine and chassis design combined with an all-world design profile.

A lot has been mentioned about the FZ1, not the least of which is that it combines an aggressive and powerful design with impressive real-world performance capabilities, making everyday rides a treat.

There’s a reason why the FZ1 is considered as one of the best sportsbikes in the world and it’s got the makings of a hot-seller in the market, something that Yamaha has come to be known for. The FZ1 isn’t for the weak-of-heart, either. It’s a man’s bike in every sense of the word and quite frankly, is still one of the best values, not just among Yamaha’s current line-up, but in the entire market altogether.

For more than 40 years, Kawasaki has shocked and awed the motorcycle world with its big-bore streetbikes. From the arm-stretching 500cc H1 of 1969 to the legendary 903cc Z-1 of 1973, all the way to the high-tech Ninja ZX-10s and 11s of the ’80s and the ZX-12s and 14s of the new millennium, Team Green has continuously kicked butt and taken names in the large-displacement sportbike category.

Fast forward to 2011 and Kawasaki has another storm brewing with the new Ninja ZX-14. Looking as menacing as ever before in its lime green set-up, the Ninja ZX-14 takes the tradition of its predecessors and antes up to cater to the demands of the new-age riders.

Packing a technologically-advanced powertrain set-up to go with a sublime finish and carefully-constructed body, the ZX-14 will be as in demand as any Kawasaki bike that has come out of Japan in recent memory.

Not that we’re surprised considering that the motorcycle brand has been doing this for well over four decades, and they’ve established a reputation as one of the best in the biz in that time.

The problem with hype is that more often than not, the expectations don’t live up to the billing. However, try telling that to Kawasaki.

The Japanese motorcycle brand’s new Ninja ZX-10R sportbike clearly has lofty expectations, but where others have fallen flat, this particular bike stands tall as one of the fastest, lightest, and most innovative production bikes in the market today. No such credibility gap, going several steps beyond newer, faster, lighter and better by offering the most advanced traction-control system in all of production motorcycling.

Yes, in all of production motorcycling.

More than the complete redesign of the bike’s engine, frame, suspension, bodywork, instrumentation, and wheels, the ZX-10R offers a highly advanced and customizable electronic system that helps riders harness and capitalize on its amazing blend of power and responsive handling. The system is called Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control, or S-KTRC, and it represents a whole new dimension in motorcycle performance, one that vaults this bike into a class all its own.

Motorcyclists have forever been challenged by traction-related issues, whether on dirt, street, or track. Riders that can keep a rear tire from spinning excessively or sliding unpredictably are both faster and safer, a tough combination to beat on the racetrack.

And when talking about the absolute leading edge of open-class sport bike technology, where production street bikes are actually more capable than full-on race bikes from just a couple years ago, more consistent traction and enhanced confidence is a major plus.

That’s precisely what the new ZX-10R offers.

Honda UK has announced the special Sports Package for the 2011 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade . The new package will be available until the end of 2011 and will be offered for both standard and ABS-equipped versions. It will be priced at £599 for the ABS pack and £699 for the standard pack.

The Sport Pack includes a higher screen, seat cowl, Akrapovic exhaust, a bike cover, and a rear tire hugger for the non ABS model. The model will be available with a new HRC (Honda Racing Corporation) tricolor version that includes a stunning gold trim, white wheels, front and rear fenders, and HRC stickers on the middle and upper front cowl. Customers interested can also order a special Graphite Black version with black wheels.

The company has described the new model as follows: "It places a firm emphasis on the clean lines of the bodywork which contrast strongly with the silver colored frame."

Want to buy a Suzuki Hayabusa that probably still has the ass print of one Jennifer Lopez? Yeah, we thought so.

This special edition supersports bike was ridden by J.Lo during the filming of a Pepsi commercial featuring her and an equally bootylicious Beyonce. We’d love to have both in our garage, but we’ll settle for one of them.

If you’re interested in the limited edition Pepsi Hayabusa with a special paint finish, an LED lighting underbody, and just 100 miles tacked on its meter, it is now for sale. Sure, the commercial was filmed back in 2004 and the Hayabusa has sat idly still since then, but it’s still a Hayabusa - a special edition at that - and a lot of those 100 miles come courtesy of the recently single Jennifer Lopez. For the record, the version used by Beyonce during the commercial was already sold at a private auction sometime back and went for a tidy five-digit sum.

We don’t know about you, but paying £19,995 - $32,500 - for the chance to own probably one of the most desirable bikes on the planet is a chance that’s too good to pass up.

The only thing we need to worry about now is finding that kind of money to spend.

Over the years, Ducati has built a pristine reputation as one of the best motorcycle manufacturers in the world. They’re expensive as heck, too, but that’s besides the point. The point here is that it doesn’t take a lot to make a Ducati bike an eye-catcher, but if you’re really trying to hit for the fences and going a tad overboard is an open option, then maybe you’ll find these special edition 1098 and 1198 Ducati bikes suitable for your palette.

Designed by Danish artist, Kristian van Hornsleth, these special edition bikes have been dressed up in 10 unique – and that’s saying it lightly –paint schemes, all of which fall under Hornsleth’s “Kill Me Fast” series.

We don’t know how appropriate the name is given that these machines are about as close to a death ride for the reckless as it can get– a 0-60 mph time of under three seconds and a top speed of 198.8 mph does that to you – but considering the meticulous detail and flashiness of the designs, there’s something mysteriously alluring about these bikes.

Not that we can afford one, but hey, we can settle for everything short of actually buying one, including needlessly looking at the photos far longer than we should. Check them out and you might end up doing the same.

Yahama has been around GP racing for the past 50 years and to commemorate this silver anniversary, the Japanese motorcycle maker will be unveiling a special livery for the YZR-M1 motorbike. Likewise, this special livery will also dress up the brand’s MotoGP racebikes at Assen TT and Laguna Seca.

As for what you need to look out for with the bike, the “YZR-M1 WGP50th Anniversary Edition” livery will come in a unique red and white paint scheme that celebrates the two-tone livery of the Yamaha Factory Racing team. There’s also a special 50th anniversary logo that will be used by the team this season. This logo will be displayed on the fuel tank of the 2011 YZR-M1 bike, as well as on the uniforms of all the members of the Yamaha Factory Racing Team, and team riders Jorge Lorenzo, the reigning MotoGP World Champion and 2010 Rookie of the Year Ben Spies.

The bike will make its official debut at a special event on June 22, 2011 where it will be broken in by no less than Lorenzo and Spies themselves. That event is still a little over a month away so in the meantime, you can check out photos and a video of the special edition bike.

Ostoure (standing for "Legend" in Persian) has been developed by the Iranian designer Mohammad Reza Shojaie. The super bike utilizes delicate design, in spite of the fact that draw on the roughest class naked-bike. Ostoure is 2WD, which is not the first in this type, but it is one of the most applicable.

The power transmission system consists of two differentials; the steering in front wheel is performing by these joints. The rear suspension system is a regular single spring and in front wheel is the same but in opposite direction. Due to this type of suspension in front wheel the radiator dimension has been minimized and two extra small ones invented in bike’s sides under its body support the central radiator.

The indicators are optional, one is on the bike’s head; and the other is HUD indicator in helmet that has been equipped with speakers and AC system, and connect to the bike by Bluetooth; the commands generate from a module devised on right side of steering handle. Bike steering is like what the pilot experience in the plane.

Honda UK has unveiled today two CBR1000RR Fireblades Special Editions - one ‘Hutchy’ and one ‘McGuinness’ – to commemorate the achievements of these two legendary TT road racers. Both bikes feature awesome special-edition paintwork celebrating Honda’s amazingly successful Isle of Man TT campaigns with two record-breaking riders: Ian Hutchinson and John McGuinness.

Ian Hutchinson tore-up the record books at this year’s TT races with an unprecedented five out of five solo wins in the Superbike, Superstock, Senior and two Supersport races. To mark his success on his Padgetts Honda race bikes, the ‘Hutchy’ CBR1000RR celebrates that amazing feat with a brilliant pearlescent white paint scheme that features a map of the 37.73-mile Isle of Man TT course, outlined around the top of the bike. A red line faithfully follows the twists and turns of the historic mountain course, complete with corner names. Both side fairings of the Fireblade are emblazoned with a commemorative decal illustrating all five of Hutchinson’s victories at this year’s TT races and, his overall TT Championship victory. There is also Ian’s unique ‘Hutchy’ graphic on the tank, along with his signature.
