2010 Kawasaki KX85
As the sole remaining updated 2-stroke in Kawasaki's dirt bike lineup, the KX85 is holding on with some new graphics and black wheels.
2010 Kawasaki KX85
Kawasaki’s only updated 2-stroke motocross bike is unchanged for 2010 except for some aesthetic cues. Yes, you read correctly – no KX65 or KX100 will be produced this year, however, they have not been dropped entirely from the lineup. Kawi, along with the rest of the motorcycle world, still hasn’t introduced a super-mini-class 4-stroke to combat Honda’s CRF150R.

Some new graphics and black rims freshen things up and apparently are worth an extra $550 (MSRP $3849), but otherwise the KX85 is the same machine as in 2009.

2009 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 Monster Energy

Ultimate Ninja® Superbike Adds Ominous Looks to Its Repertoire

For riders looking to shock and awe their rivals, the sinister looking special edition Kawasaki Ninja® ZX™-14 Monster Energy® is the sportbike of choice. Dressed in all black, it promises a cranked-up heart rate for anyone with a pulse, thanks to the black bodywork, frame and pinstriped wheels, highlighted by an aggressive Monster Energy graphics package.

The Monster Energy ZX-14 is a testament to effective engineering. Its engine and exhaust system permit it to comply with strict Euro-III emissions and tightening noise regulations. However, the ZX-14’s low-end torque, mid-range surge and its legendary Ninja peak power place it at the top of the sportbike food chain.

Kawasaki announced the availability of the Versys in the U.S. market for 2008. "The new 2008 Kawasaki Versys is a machine which occupies a hard to define sweet spot in the motorcycling universe. Is it a practical commuter? Long-legged urban assault vehicle? Sportbike? Light Tourer?

The answer on all counts is a resounding Yes! This isn’t a niche specialist but rather a jack-of-all-trades with user-friendly versatility as one of its many charms.

The 649cc parallel twin and the neutral handling and light steering chassis of the Ninja 650R sportbike made the perfect starting point for this comfortable gridlock commando. A swoopy gull-wing swingarm, long-travel inverted 41mm fork, six-spoke Superbike-inspired wheels, adjustable-height windscreen and a comfortable cockpit were combined to create a motorcycle that just begs to be ridden wherever the pavement might lead."
