The Z750S is a “street” style machine for intermediate riders who dont like the aggressiveness of a sportbike or the laidback-ness of a cruiser. This naked middleweight is the perfect middle ground.
If youve never given any thought to riding a sportbike, then this just might be the motorcycle to change that. Kawasaki recently introduced the Ninja 650R, the companys latest two-wheeled fun-seeker. With a seat height of just 30 inches (thats low in the sportbike category), and a dry weight of 392 pounds (thats very light in any category), the Ninja 650R is sure to appeal to a variety of riders from beginner to expert.
I was in Barstow, California, the last fuel stop on a long, hot ride to Las Vegas. It was 9:00 at night. I just spent the last seven hours riding the 2005 BMW R 1200 GS across a very hot and crowded desert highway. When I finally got to the hotel and poured myself off the GS, I sat down and thought about what I enjoyed about this bike.
