Kawasaki Wallpapers

As you may already know, 2020 marks 10 years since Club Kawasaki was re-launched as we know and love it today. So 2020 is supposed to be a year of celebration for us all! Until we can safely bring events back to our calendar, we're going to bring you lots of 10 related content like quizzes, top tips, favourites, interviews, competitions, giveaways and more! 

In our last Friday News update, you heard from Technical Expert at Kawasaki UK, Ross Symons with his 10 top tips and this week we're giving you another 10 Kawasaki wallpapers. Our first 10 wallpapers went down very well over on the Club Kawasaki forum with lots of requests - some of which are included in this latest batch! Keep your suggestions coming and we'll do our best to get them created for you.


Kawasaki UK are pleased to announce that a number of Kawasaki Dealers across the U.K. will be hosting a demo event in partnership with Focused Events. The events will give visitors the opportunity to test ride a new Kawasaki model from the exciting 2020 range, in an environment that follows strict social distancing guidelines. From exhilarating mid capacity, to top of the line supercharged motorcycles, the following models will be available to ride on the day:

Ninja ZX-6R, Z650, Ninja 650, Versys 650, Vulcan S, Z900, Z900RS, Z900RS Café, Ninja ZX-10R, Ninja 1000SX, Versys 1000 SE, Ninja H2 SX SE+, Z H2.

Test rides must be pre-booked before the event to avoid large crowds at the dealerships, and customers are asked to bring their own hand sanitiser and refreshments.

All-New Kawasaki KX250XC and KX450XC Announced

Kawasaki Motors UK are pleased to announce that the all-new 2021 Kawasaki KX250XC and KX450XC cross-country racers will be coming to our shores!

Based on the highly advanced Kawasaki KX range, both of these cross-country motorcycles have received specific XC tuning that encompasses the engine, suspension, brakes, wheel size, gearing, enduro tyres, side stands and skid plates, making both the KX250XC and KX450XC more attractive for cross-country competitors.

XC Highlights shared by both models:
  • Optimised engine maps deliver the ideal amount of useable power for XC riding situations
  • Large Diameter brakes with XC specific pads
  • Race ready suspension directly from the KX250 (for the KX250XC) and KX450 (for the KX450XC), with spring rates and damping settings optimised for XC riding
  • XC-specific wheels (F21”/R18”) and Dunlop AT81 enduro-type tyres are well-suited to the situations encountered in XC riding
  • 51/13 final gearing (shorter than the 50/13 of the KX250 and KX450) facilitates rear wheel traction control in cross-country riding situations
  • KX factory-style skid plate and side stand are both standard equipment

Other race-winning features shared by both models:

  • Weight saving and high RPM performance thanks to MotoGP derived finger follower valve technology
  • Electric start making it as easy as pushing a button
  • Hydraulic clutch offering more direct feel and lighter lever action, plus race-long durability and reliability
  • Launch Control Mode gives riders the holeshot advantage
  • Exceptional ergonomics with adjustable handlebar and footpeg positions, plus a narrow frame and minimalistic bodywork
  • Plug-and-play engine mapping with DFI couplers (plugs) and precision tuning available when using the KX FI Calibration kit genuine accessory

Anticipated availability in the UK: November 2020

Anticipated RRP for KX250XC: £7,599

Anticipated RRP for KX450XC: £7,999

The latest from Kawasaki Youtube


Kawasaki Motors UK are supporting the #UnlockYourFreedom initiative that has been launched by the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) to highlight the reasons why riding a scooter or motorcycle is a great alternative to stay isolated and safe.

Government advice states: ''Consider all other forms of transport before using public transport,” therefore increasing numbers of people are looking for reliable and quick modes of transport during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Motorcyclists across the world already know the benefits of two wheels - they're affordable, economical, fun and can help ease congestion. However, the list of advantages has been expanded even further now that being socially distanced is high on people's agendas. Now, choosing two-wheels is a safer alternative to public transport as it allows individuals to remain isolated and a safe distance from others outside of their households.

If you're 17 or over, you can ride a motorcycle or scooter up to 125cc or 11KW having completed your Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). Or if you're 16, you're able to ride a scooter up to 50cc without even passing a test, all you have to do is complete CBT which often takes as little as one day.

Find essential information about the licensing process at the #unlockyourfreedom website, and if you want to learn to ride with Kawasaki, don't forget to look at Kawasaki Rider Training Services - KRTS - for your motorcycle training needs.
