2011 KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE 750 ($8849)
We’re big fans of Kawasaki’s pet monster. The 90-degree V-twin motor makes us smile with its Ducati-like cadence. The Brute is fuel injected, has a multi-plate wet rear brake and is a decent-handling machine despite its size. It isn’t available with power steering, but we hope that’s on the way.
