Jay Leno might be best known as a serious car enthusiast, but the comedian is an equal opportunity type, showing the love for both four and two-wheeled conveyances. That means when a groundbreaking motorcycle like the Kawasaki H2 comes along, it needs to make an appearance on Jay Leno's Garage.

The Kawasaki Ninja H2R superbike was definitely the star of this year's Intermot motorcycle show in Germany. How could it not have been? Packing a supercharged, 1.0-liter four-cylinder with 300 horsepower wrapped in a carbon fiber fairing and a green trellis frame, it's one of the baddest-looking bikes ever.

There's no event in the world of motorsports quite like the annual Isle of Man TT. The course is long and treacherous, the scenery breathtaking, the motorcycles fast and the riders like gods on celestial chariots of two wheels. It's an amazing experience, and one that Kawasaki has decided to focus its efforts on, capturing the highs and lows of its time on the Isle in video form.

Kawasaki has released a slew of images of the 2012 ZX-14R, a motorcycle that will feature new electronic enhancements, a reworked engine and slightly restyled bodywork for next year.

By now, we've all grown a little callous to watching high-strung supercars prance their way around the Nürburgring. Nearly every manufacturer has taken it upon themselves to do battle with the infamous road course, and as a result, YouTube is choked with videos of physics-bending cars doing what they do best. It's a little rarer to get to see a motorcycle take on the torturous course. Bridgestone test rider Tim Röthig recently mounted a Kawasaki ZX-10R, strapped on a Gyrocam and procee
