For shorter riders the 845mm seat height may give pause, but if your can hold the motorcycle up at a stop, you'll find everything else about it agreeable. The Kawasaki Ninja 650 sourced liquid-cooled , DOHC twin-cylinder engine is narrow and manageable, yet has enough power for local touring on dirt roads and open highways. Suspension is basic, yet effective, and handling is up to anything a likely rider will dish out. Naked bike lovers, can select the always eye-catching, 2013 Kawasaki Z1000. The Z1000 is here to grab your attention with angular styling, distinctive mufflers, and distracting color, not to mention startling performance. Tuned for torque, the oversquare inline-four is never at a loss for power, regardless of which of the six gear is selected. A horizontal rear shock is isolated from exhaust heat and weight-centralized on the motorcycle, while its 41mm inverted forks are full adjustable and flex-proof. Radially mounted calipers grab 300mm petal discs in the front for sure braking. The engine is both solidly and rubber-mounted for a carful mix of comfort and control.

The engine has the latest technological wizardry, including three-mode traction control, switchable power maps, and a 32-bits ECU with fine-atomizing injectors for precise fuel delivery. Even with all that power, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R is docile if you have good control of you right hand.
