Suzuki M190R. 127 hp (crank) 120 ftlb torque.

Sweet little hot-rod bike.

I don't know Kawasaki nomenclature too well....So I couldn't tell you which ZXRZZZ 1100, 1200 etc... that I'm talking about but:



Git yerself one o' them big green Eddie Lawson lookin' things ~ you know ~ Kerker exhaust, big ol' pipe braced swing arm, lotsa tire and lotsa motor, wiggles & shakes when you ride it hard , motor sounds kinda raw & phat! yeah that's the ticket...!



This bike exemplifies the spirit and style of a Z28!

How about a BMW K1200R. I know it might be too high tech to compare it to a Camaro Z28, but still a real kick in the pants. Or maybe a Confederate Hellcat.

The bike would also have to creak when driving over bumps, and paint should flake off of it as time goes by.

Definitely a Bandit 1200 (which I sold a few years ago and now miss). When people who didn't know bikes but knew cars used to ask me what type of bike I had, I always said it was sort of like a Z28. Big-block power, cheap as hell (for an engine of that size and power), very old-tech frame and suspension, yet reasonable capable once tuned and/or upgraded, and simple as dirt to maintain without a very complete set of advanced tools.

Default 1988-89 Suzuki GSXR 1100

The Chevy 350 of Sportbikes, it responds well to modifications, can kick newer bikes' arse when ridden well, and is ~430 pds dry.



Swap out the front end with something newer, better shock and tires, jet kit and exhaust--and you're there.
