My name is Kenyon Kluge. I'm from Santa Cruz, California. I'm a team owner and rider for K Squared Racing. I'm also the team manager and rider for Zero Motorcycle Racing. If you want to find out more information about me you can look at my website, or for more information on Zero Motorcycles go to And now I'm going to talk to you about motorcycles. Comparing the brands: Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki. These days they all build a full line of motorcycles. The margin between them is very narrow, everybody has really come up and adopted all of the new technology, so they're all really good motorcycles. The Suzuki's, in my opinion, are really the most race ready motorcycle off the showroom floor for the sports bikes and just a generally fast bike all around. Honda builds a motorcycle that is really well made and very well engineered, so any Honda you get is going to run forever and probably give you very few problems. Yahama's are also very fast right out of the showroom. They make a lot of power and are easy to ride very quickly, right away. Kawasaki does a lot of things well. Follows a lot of technology from the other guys, and really picks and chooses and gives just an overall good package, but I wouldn't say anything stands out.
