Kaoko Throttle Control at wBW

kaoko-throttle-control-kawasaki-versys-reviewVia webBikeWorld.com

We originally reviewed the Kaoko throttle control fitted to a BMW C 650 GT scooter (Blog).  After that, we did a second review of the Kaoko throttle control on the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS (Blog). And once more for the special Kaoko throttle control for use with Barkbusters (and other) hand guards.

Each installation was different; some easier than others. Since I helped Kaoko with feedback when they developed their first BMW scooter throttle lock, they asked if I could do it again on the then brand-new 2015 Kawasaki Versys 650. As it turns out, there were a few quirks we had to figure out.

Upcoming Summer Reviews

As we get into summertime I have a full queue of reviews coming that will be published to webBikeWorld over the next several weeks including the Podium Leather Racing suit from AGV Sport, the Outback 2 Jacket and Enterprise pants from REV’IT!, some new boots from TCX, the Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 pants, and more updates and blog entries of the Kawasaki Ninja 1000.

As the reviews get published you’ll hear about them here at MotorcycleWords.com and on our social media accounts. Have you got something you feel should be reviewed? Let me know about it and I’ll see if I can my hands on whatever it is.

Ninja 1000 First Impressions Review at wBW


My first impressions review of my new Ninja 1000 over at webBikeWorld.com (Excerpt below)

The Ninja 1000 is one of three bikes based on Kawasaki’s 1043cc engine. The other two are the Z1000 “naked” or roadster and the new-for-2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000, big brother to the 2015 Kawasaki Versys 650 LT (Blog), one of the current webBikeWorld Project Bikes.

The Ninja 1000 is classified in the “sport” category by Kawasaki, which doesn’t really tell the whole story…or maybe it does.

I’m preparing to invoke a very over-used term in the world of motorcycle reviews: “all-’rounder”. There, I said it. Now that it’s out of the way I’ll elaborate.
