Dammit man! the "S" just refers to them being `04s. When I'm not at MO, this type of thing happens...

Fairing - Check

Centerstand - Check

Silver - Check

Under 2 zillion CC - Check

Affordable - Check



I'm in love. Always loved the FZ1 but couldn't afford it and was always a bit scared to find out how much it would cost for insurance.



The FZ6 looks like just the thing for me. I've been considering a Kawa ZR-7s but this looks much more tasty.

I read somewhere that the US is only getting the faired version for now.

I guess I will be able to make it naked if I want. But what I really liked about the Euro version was that badass Brutale headlight.

It's deja vu. Kawasaki's latest greatest Ninja plays second-fiddle to the R1. The ZX-9R looked so cool until the R1 was unveiled a few years ago. Things never change. In keeping with the trend, Suzuki is left with an ugly, but effective track weapon (as was the case with the 600 class last year).

You probably saved them at a different resolution. My downloads are definately the same size on my local machine as indicated by the download.

I agree with MO. Great looking bike with f'ed up instruments: enough to be a deal breaker for me. Two plain old analog clocks with imbedded idiot lights would be better. If weight is a consideration, I'll stop eating donuts for a month. Sorry, but you skinny guys will have to find other ways to compensate.

Let me guess: the Honda will be a VFR1000R all over again. Cool but obese...

I would seriously consider owning the naked version but have no interest in the faired one.



The naked version looks fantastic and the faired version looks like a Bandit 600...

Well, my thought was 'the aftermarket will provide'. There has to be a way to get the unfaired version's headlight over the pond to the States and then I can have my sexy Brutale cake and tour with it too.
