Speed. Power. Handling. Agility. Stability. Comfort. Payload. It’s hard enough to pack all those endearing qualities into a motorcycle, and it’s even more rare to find them in great quantities in any one machine. But that’s what Kawasaki has accomplished with the Concours 14.

Cycle World Magazine Review: 2010 Concours 14
I also experienced the KTRC traction control system's full potential on the skid pad. With KTRC turned off, even thinking about opening the throttle on the watered-down plastic resulted in wild slides and uncontrolled wheelspin; but with the system turned on, I could not make the rear tire spin in any gear, or at any rpm, regardless of how far I opened the throttle.

Motorcyclist Magazine Review: 2010 Kawasaki Concours 14
After a few miles of stoplights, there’s no withering engine heat in the cockpit. Slip into the overdrive top cog and there’s no nasty buffeting behind the new windscreen at 80 mph. No vibration either.

Cycle News Magazine Review: Kawasaki Concours 14
"The powerband is, however, smoother than the ZX’s, especially off the bottom and through midrange…once you get in the upper rev range, around 7000 rpm, the afterburners certainly kick in, eliminating any pucker factor when passing. Overtaking slower cars is instantaneous."

RoadRunner Magazine Review: Kawasaki Concours 14
"As with the frame, the suspension and brakes are perfectly suited to handling a brisk country road pace. While Kawasaki makes no bones about this bike’s aggressive stance, there are plenty of traveling amenities to make long days in the saddle a joy."

Motorcyclist, one of the largest and most-respected motorcycle publications in America had this to say about the Concours 14: "This thing will blitz blacktop faster than any sporty-tourer on planet Earth, especially twisty blacktop."

American Motorcyclist Magazine Review: Concours™ 14
"...it felt like the most natural thing in the world. If your idea of the sport-touring ideal is a sportbike with hard bags, a comfortable riding  position, and the minimum number of compromises possible, then the Concours is aimed squarely at you."

Motorcyclist Magazine Review: Kawasaki Concours 14
"Kawasaki’s KI-PASS keyless concept is a pretty nifty system. No gloved hands searching jacket pockets for some confounded key. It stays right there in the ignition. Lock the steering as you would on any other bike and walk away. Once you and the fob are outside the 5.25-foot range, a little digital conversation between the resident computers will take care of the rest. Once you get used to it, KI-PASS makes life on the road a whole lot easier, while making things a whole lot harder on thieves and their ilk."

rider Magazine Review: Kawasaki Concours 14
"...it’s got a decidedly sporty side, yet this is not just a ZX-14 with higher handlebars. The Concours 14 has been purpose-built for long-distance travel in comfort - it also just happens to have the handling, braking and cojones of Kawasaki’s largest kick-butt sportbike..."
