Streched Kawasaki ZX10 vs. Mazda RX7 in furious drift battle.
In 2012 there was a 40th anniversary of Kawasaki’s legendary Z series of bikes. Kawasaki Italy decided to celebrate this event their own way and asked Angel Lussiana to build the custom motorcycle in the style of Z1 taking 2013 Kawasaki Z100 as the base.
After numerous announcements and speculations, Kawasaki presented their 2013 motocross bikes. Kawasaki continue to keep the tradition of innovative revisions to both of KX250F and KX450F. This time Kawasaki KX450X got Kayaba air fork that utilizes pneumatic technology to provide better control and saving weight. The motorcycle got lot’s of internal changes as well as Launch Control technology and Digital Fuel Injection maps which can be changed without the usage of the personal computer.
Finally, Kawasaki Ninja 250R got radical transformation into Ninja 300 CC. The new Ninja is powered by liquid-cooled, parallel twin engine. About 60% of the engine parts are completely new – e.g. digital fuel injection, spin-on oil filter etc. The valves are bigger, the piston pins, pistons and aluminum cylinders are much lighter. Bigger oil pan with cooling fins, modified crank cases and reshaped pistons improves oil flow and engine cooling process. The extra torque is handled better by 6-speed transmission.
In 2012 Kawasaki has upgraded Ninja ZX-14R with a more powerful and heavier engine, solid changes to chassis, bodywork and completely new KTRC traction control. For 2013, guys from Kawasaki decided to complete their lineup of models with Ninja ZX-14R ABS.
