2008 Kawasaki Concours 14: “For 2008 the list of eligible [MOTY] contenders is short compared to many previous years, but every one is a formidable bike worthy of recognition. There can be only one MOTY, though, and the Kawasaki Concours 14 is our pick. // We’re focused on performance, handling and comfort first here at Rider, along with value, reliability, and practicality. This stylish sport tourer pegs the meter in all of those areas, and has an impressive list of standard features that are both fun and useful, including KIPASS key fob security, a tire pressure monitoring system, electric windscreen, remote rear spring preload adjuster and large, functional, locking side cases. Anti-lock brakes are also available. // Based on the street-shredding Ninja ZX-14 sportbike, the all-new 2008 Concours has a decidedly sporty side, yet it is not just a ZX-14 with higher handlebars. Purpose-built for long-distance travel in comfort, it has just happens to have the handling, braking and cojones of Kawasaki’s largest kick-butt sportbike, nearly a liter-and-a-half in size, with the addition of Variable Valve Timing (VVT) for a broader powerband.” (Rider, July 2008; photo by Kevin Wing)
