Default Re: Kawasaki 650 Twin???

Yeah, like what's with all these four cylinder types?



Give me a break....twins rule!



And why didn't we ever see the TDM850 over here across the pond? Was it beacuse of all these 600cc sportbike squids?



Losers...

Agreed. But I hope they produce it -- I like all bikes that make my DL6fiddy look less-than-homely by comparison.

Default Firebolt SV1000

If he had the Suzuki SV V-Twins engines to work with he would. I would love to see someone stick a SV1000 engine in a Firebolt

Interesting bike but aren't parallel twins inherently clunky and have lots of vibration without something to counterbalance??? Compared to other Twin configurations.

If you put two more wheels on it, it would be a car.
