Default GMP predictions come true again. ZX-8

ZX-8 is a great idea. kpaul did not think it would happen this soon though. Never the less count another one for kpaul

ABS is becoming a "must have option" for the standards in Europe.



It seems de regeur that whenever a standard or giant trailie is redesigned, the european version adds optional ABS.

Default Re: Damn you Euro Bastards...

What is wrong with the mfgrs? ABS is needed. In the good old USA where many riders have no clue about braking, it is needed even more than in Europe. Oh, wait, I forgot about all of those cruiser types that don't even use the front brake. THAT creeps me out.



By the way I like the bike. Wearing an Icon mainframe "Skull" helmet with dark shield, black Spidi NRG leather jacket and pants, black Alpinestars GP Plus gloves and Alpinestars S-MX Plus black boots, it would be an outstanding weapon to terrorize motorists. The Kawasaki does have that "anime" look, sort of Gundam Wing-ish (Look it up). I think if you like anime you will probalby like the bike; if not, you won't.



In the interest of full disclosure, I am, however, forced to admit an occasional desire to ride a Buell,(The fuel is where and the oil goes in the what?) but then there is also that occasional desire to return to regular church attendance. Thus far I have fought off both of them successfully.

Who do you know that whines about lack of torque from a liter bike? Seriously find me a review of a liter bike that says "alas the 1000cc motor doesn't have enough torque for street riding"

Tard.



Give me the full tuned engine please. Let the Tard have the weaker version.

Seriously I haven't been able to find a comparison of the new Tuono and Speed Triple anywhere!

Hey now, the original Transformers in the '80s were very well done. Especially in their non-robot forms.

I could handle the four pipe job on the old Z1000, I liked it and didn't see what all the fuss was about, but this new one is an abortion... its the afterbirth of an abortion.

Default Road rash

It reminds me of one of the bikes in the old video game Road Rash.



Gangs of cruisers, mods, rats, and sportbikes ride on the open road and whack eachother with chains and baseball bats.



I've got an old copy for Playstation 1. Great fun!
