Kawasaki is returning to its roots the ZZR1400 (full review in Motoring shortly). This monster is claimed to be the fastest production motorcycle on the planet, in excess of 200bhp with a spread of torque from the engine (which is seven per bigger than the old ZZR1400’s). The is slightly lower, yet Kawasaki it’s still eight per more economical.

The four-headlight fronts an aerodynamic body a more angular look before, designed for very speeds, yet it is being marketed as a sports-tourer.

The bike also gets an aluminium monocoque chassis and suspension, as well as a longer to improve stability at speed. is keen to emphasise its rideability, it’s docile and easy to at normal speeds.

The good is that it comes with its own of the outstanding traction control also fitted to the Versys along with a low-power mode for poor conditions or if you find your heart a little too fast.

Of all the Japanese Kawasaki has been busiest in new models, and the likeliest best this year is the Versys sports tourer.

Despite the there are no claims for any off-road and Kawasaki confirms the bike is not against the iconic BMW R1200GS but in line with the Triumph 1050. This makes as it is basically a four-cylinder Z1000 in adventure clothes, which is suited to anything too dirty

The engine has been retuned to a wider spread of torque at the of some of the Z1000’s peak and it’s very effective, as we in the Telegraph Motoring review. The is more widely spaced the Z1000’s too, making for a ride at motorway speeds and economy.

Despite its sub-£10,000 the Versys 1000 comes one of the most sophisticated traction systems in motorcycling, based on of the ZX-10R superbike. It also has two modes to suit conditions and style, and the latest Bosch ABS

The ER-6n is a useful improvement on an fine middleweight motorcycle. The has been revised for a more snub-nosed look and changes to the system and engine management released more torque in the reaches of the rev range turning the into a bike you can leave in a gear all day if you wish, without it flat or breathless. Take it and you’ll be rewarded with the mpg, and comfort is good although this is one to try for size at the if you’re tall as it’s an compact bike.

The downside is the bike is not available ABS, for that you need to opt for the (essentially the same as the 6n but with a on which it’s a good-value option
