Well I'm a motorcyclist and I look like a model...People say to me all the time, "why sarnali, you look just like a model except your beard ain't coiffed".....



I would be curious though as to which models they're ramping production on. If it's for Europe it's probabaly Ninjas and ZX14's. Like the Great Motorcycle Suppository says, they ain't buying too many cruisers over there.

"Large bikes" could mean anything from 2500cc cruisers to 650cc scooters. Kawasaki already makes several variants of its 2000cc and 1600cc cruisers and also has large-displacement naked and sportbikes covered. Scooters are on the rise. A lot of people who don't think of themselves as motorcycle people are looking for more-economical transportation. Big scooters are better suited to hauling grocereries and riding to work in business attire. Honda and Suzuki are doing well with the Silver Wings and Burgmans. Kawasaki's plans may include going after a share of this market.

Yeah the first thing that comes to mind when I see a scooter is "large bike."



You and KP share one slightly damaged brain, don't you?
