Hell, that looks just as bad as the KTM 950 Supermoto. Too many angles and that pipe is truely terrible. I'll bet it is fun to ride, but half the fun is getting off to look at the thing. This bike is a perfect match for a bulimic. Ride to lunch, eat, look at the bike and unload.

Eight grand? Doubt it. Maybe just shy of nine. It's probably somewhere in FZ-1 territory.

Looks a bit overstyled but I'll reserve judgment until I see it in person. Then again, that seems too the Z-1000s design mission. It's better integrated than the original at least. This is meant to be a love it or hate it design.



I don't think it's as bad as the KTM.

That's a bike only a Kawasaki rep could love. It looks ready to buzz off and chew on flesh somewhere.

Just leave a trail of carne asada burritos outside Sean's door and once his eyes glaze over, he'll cough up the information.

It may be time for MO to do a Comparo with the Aprilia Tuono and Triumph Speed Triple...!

At least we know now where the guy who designed the Transformers went.

Maybe because it's naked and could never achieve anywhere near the top speed of an ZX10 it makes more sense to give up a few top end horsepower for a wider powerband... essential in a hooligan bike.

Nice bike. They are apparently tooting their own trumpet through that muffler horn.

Damn you Euro Bastards...
 
In europe, it will have optional ABS.



It seems ABS option is becoming a de-reguer option on nonsportbikes in europe. But where is the ABS for the US? Oh yeah, locked up the front wheel and smeared across the asphault...
