Kawasaki Teases the Retro-Styled Z900RS

  Kawasaki Teases the Retro-Styled Z900RS <p>Retro-modern, middleweight bikes are all the rage and Kawasaki wants a piece of the action.</p>In an effort to snatch up some market share in the sub-1,000-cc retro motorcycle segment, Kawasaki is tapping into some of its own design heritage and bringing it to a new bike. They’re coming out with the Z900RS, a repackaged version of the Z900 naked bike.

When it comes to power -to-weight ratios, motorcycles are on a whole other level than cars. 200ish horsepower might make for a reasonably quick car (think Honda Civic Si), but in a motorcycle, 200 horsepower is an absolutely bonkers figure.

When it comes to power-to-weight ratios, motorcycles are on a whole other level than cars. 200ish horsepower might make for a reasonably quick car (think Honda Civic Si), but in a motorcycle, 200 horsepower is an absolutely bonkers figure. That's part of what makes the 201-hp 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX and it's 2.8 pounds-per-pony so impressive (we're talking Bugatti Veyron power ratios here). That and the bright green paint.

  Oh Yes, That Awesome Dealer-Built, 650 HP Ford F-150 Lightning Is Great at Burnouts <p>For all those who thought the truck was pointless.</p>Even if you don't totally buy into the idea of an on-road performance pickup, you can't deny this video of Hooniverse news editor Greg Kachadurian throwing the 1-of-2 Ford F-150 Lightning homage around an empty airstrip is hilarious fun. With very little weight over the rear wheels and a 5.0-liter V-8 engine up front, the supercharged truck breaks its back tires loose with ease.

This is the third supercharged motorcycle from the Japanese manufacturer, following on the H2 and H2R. According to Asphalt and Rubber, the model comes in two flavors, the black H2 SX and the green H2 SX SE. The SE comes with a thin TFT color dash, cornering lights, launch control and a quickshifter.

The new model is intended to be more of a touring bike and packs a five-gallon fuel tank and small pad for a rear passenger. Cruise control is standard and a new internal measurement unit adds cornering ABS and different traction control settings.

As impressive as the big engine may be, it does have to offset a good bit of weight. At 564 pounds, it's a bit of a porker compared to other motorcycles at this price point. Still, this isn't intended to be a track bike, so the weight may not be such a big deal. The engine weighs slightly less than the 310 horsepower supercharged inline-four in the H2R.

  Kawasaki’s Hellcat for the Water How Kawi Brings 310 BHP Out of a 1.5L Sportbike Engine Can we just call this the Hellcat of Jet Skis? It needs a low-power key for the weak-willed, it’s got a blower, and it’s just about as irrational. What we’re talking about is the 310hp, 1,498cc four-banger in Kawasaki’s Ultra 310-series of Jet Skis. Known internally as the JT1500LHF (LHF probably stands for the first thing out of your mouth at full-tilt: "Like, holy f***!"), this water-cooled, DOHC, air-to-water-intercooled Jet Ski is electronically limited just under 70 mph, but with an Eaton TVS supercharger carrying a pulley that looks like it could be a few fractions of an inch smaller and a heal

Rows Come and Go: Lexus Will Offer a Five-Seat Version of the LX570 .
Lexus RX buyers have been clamoring for an extra row of seating for years now, and Lexus is finally placating them with the new seven-seat RX L. But apparently those interested in Lexus's biggest SUV, the LX570, have been asking for just the opposite. So Lexus has removed the LX's third row of seats to create a new five-seat version of this Toyota Land Cruiser–based behemoth that begets more cargo space and a lower base price.The change really is as simple as removing the LX570's third-row bench and its accompanying hardware.
