Kawasaki has given a fresh look of the Versys 650 and Versys 1000 for 2015. Now, it features dual headlight which I can’t keep away from comparing it with the headlight of the ZX6R 636 and also the Ninja 250.
Versys 650 comes with the 649cc parallel twin liquid-cooled engine that mated with 6-speed transmission. The front brakes got the dual disc setup with 300mm petal-style rotors with two-piston calipers and ABS.
Versys 1000 is equipped with the more powerful 1,043cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine also mated to 6-speed transmission. The front suspension is from KYB with 43mm which is big enough but not the upside down fork type. The braking also got more powerful as it is equipped with the bigger 310mm dual disc brake setup for the front and single 250mm disc brake at the rear. Read the rest of this entry »

2015 AGV K-5 DIMENSION BLACK/WHITE/RED
2015 has seen AGV coming up with new addition of K series which is this K-5. Before this we can see the popular K-3 in Malaysia worn by many riders who prefer the fitting of the AGV. Then, AGV upgrade the K-3 lineup by introducing the K-3 SV which refers to the K-3 with Sun Visor for comfortable riding at day or even at night.
The main difference that we can see from K-3 and K-5 is the K-5 shell is made from fibreglass and also carbon fibre to ensure toughness and lightness. It is made according to the AGV Extreme Standards technology.
The price is not known yet at the time of writing but I estimate it at RM2k. Not yet available in Malaysia. 4 more pictures after the break: Read the rest of this entry »

Launched at Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia is first country in Asia to have the Kawasaki Ninja H2 and H2 R (not including Japan). I’m thinking this is due to Malaysia that have the proper place to have the power of this bike to be unleashed, that is the Sepang Circuit. As we know, the Ninja H2 R are track only bike and you can never have it registered to make it road legal, so, it is logic that Malaysia to have it available. For the road use, you can still obtain the Ninja H2 which is road legal hyperbike that can maxes out 300km/h, but on the road, you should limit the speed to only 110km/h.
Kawasaki Vulcan S is also an interesting bike to have here in Malaysia. It is a cruiser which suits the condition in Malaysia since we have nice coastal beach street that we can enjoy riding it. Previously, Malaysia have already have the Kawasaki Vulcan VN500 that proves to be popular sometimes ago. Priced below RM30,000, this is one bike that offer excellent value-for-money. You’ll get 650cc bike with a muscular look from Kawasaki that proves to be reliable. Revival of the cruiser as said by Kawasaki Malaysia. I guessing this Vulcan S will be hugely popular once again in Malaysia. It just ticks all the box correctly. Great engine? Check. Nice design? Check. Cheap price? Check!
Available only sometime next year. Price is after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »
