I think the voyager has been out of kawi's lineup for a few years now.

No, not really. Buell has one on the Uly (with a very substantial rock guard), but that bike is not intended to do very much off road work. My guess is that the typical KLR spends a lot more time off road.

I wonder why Kawasaki doesn't introduce the KSR110 in North America and elsewhere!? I just bought one, along with two tuning books from Amazon Japan - "KSR Files" and "KSR Files 2". These little midget bikes are 'Da Bomb'!! I just love it to death. Got mine in Green (What else?).



Check out the Japanese website at http://www.kawasaki-motors.com/model/ksr110/

New Concourse
 
While the new Concours is a little loud styling wise, I still like the appearance better than an FJR or ST1300 (or are they up to 1400 now? Who knows...)



Maybe it's time to trade in the ST4s. Hmmm. I am nearing 30...

The really real question is, "Will it remain in it's divine position in the 'Holy Trinity' of motorcyledom?"



171HP would make it the "Shiva" to the SV650 "Brahma" and the VFR800 "Krishna".

Hey KP. I hope you're alright.



Good thing you were on the safest motorcycle made!

"Enough! Kawasaki, you had us with 'ZX-14 engine'".



Amen.

LOL Actually when my insurance company gets the bill for all that plastic and my rates go up, I'll be wishing I was on cruiser with crash bars. Nothing wrong with the motorcycle i.e. it was safe just the rider (me) was an idiot.

thanks for asking.. Just sore with some road rash. Kind felt like falling in skiing. I tried to catch myself with my hands, good thing I had good goves with kevlar pieces.

"Will it remain in it's divine position in the 'Holy Trinity' of motorcyledom?"



Surely you pose a rhetoric question used in the development of novices. As True Believers we know that the "HT" is Inviolate! The Strength of one becomes the Strength of Three!



Yes Honda could have come out with a VFR1000/or more a decade ago and of course it would have won the BMEA (Best Motorcycle Ever Award) but that would be boring.



The SV650 shall always Serve to remind neophytes that the Joy communed from our Divine Pursuit need not be Gained with Ridiculous amounts of money or Horsepower and/or Torque (although verily many Brethren Proclaim Ridiculous amounts of Horsepower and/or Torque to be Good). As we know the SV650 shall remain in it's exalted Place to the "End of Times" as will All. This being the case if unchanged or discontinued (Heresy!).



And No, I did not call you Surely
