2011 Models

Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A offers a wide range of fun products, including motorcycles, ATVs (all-terrain vehicles), recreation utility vehicles, utility vehicles and JET SKI watercraft.

Recently they held their Kawasaki Dealer Meeting on October 4 to 6 in Las Vegas, NV where they introduced all the new 2011 products.

My motorcycle highlights include the new-from-the-ground-up 2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R sportbike, going several steps toward newer, faster, lighter and better by offering some advanced traction-control system.

My second motorcycle highlight is Kawasaki’s new Ninja 1000. Like the original, which debuted to an amazing chorus of press and customer kudos back in 1986, the new 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 offers an alluring blend of capability and technology, from the very latest racetrack components, to an astounding engine, chassis performance, and cutting-edge styling.

My third motorcycle highlight is the 2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero. The new Vaquero bagger is more than a custom paint and a blacked-out motif on a Vulcan 1700 and call it done.

Kawasaki took time to digested valuable motorcycle owner and market research, and scrutinized every system from the engine, chassis, features, bodywork and appearance to ensure that the motorcycle being developed squared nicely with what cruiser buyers wanted.

Kawasaki also unveiled the 2011 Ultra 300LX Jet Ski. It offers more power and thrust for 2011, along with loads of engine strengthening to handle all that power and help ensure typical Kawasaki reliability.

There is new technology in the form of an all-new and high-tech supercharger and the Kawasaki Electronic Throttle Valve system. And the race-derived hull has been extensively updated to provide the sort of top-tier handling hard-core enthusiasts expect.
