Default Re: Kawasaki 650 Twin???

I love it. A nice light sporty yet comfortable bike with about 70 rw horsepower. The headlight will take a bit of getting used to but other then that bring it on. I want one. Iv'e ridden the 250 and 500 parallel twins and loved both. The 250 has always been my favorite bike (especially the 86-87). Figure this might replace the 500 ninja? Can't wait for more word on this one. Yay Kawasaki!

Default Now's yer chance!

Look, a new bike to replace your KZ750! Now you can shoot the 750 and put it out of it's misery. I got rid of mine by selling it to a guy who didn't speak english very well. He wadded it two months later.



Rest in Peace!

That's been out since 1992. You can buy one via Canada, but it's more expensive than the EX250, is 50 pounds heavier and has the same motor. It does look better and has better wheels, foe sho.

Replace the Ninja? I figure two things: this is as close as you'll get to seeing one at a US dealership, and this is a sign that Buells sell better in Europe.

Indeed. The best us 'Mericans can hope for is a gray market import from Canada.



I like it - a very fresh face an otherwise boring world of middleweight standards.

Default Re: Uh uh, not yet...

Nope, I'm riding that 750 thing untill it disentergrates. In fact, I'm riding it again today. Rode it all week. Just keeps running better...even when I brag about it. Murphy's law doesn't apply here pal.



Thinking of getting a nice blue milk crate for the seat btw.



And since the rust holes in the pipes of my mighty CL350 blew out and the DT1 needs a new piston, I'm "forced" to ride the KZ...



No rest for the wicked.
