Those exhausts look better in real life than they do in the pictures. Or maybe I'm getting used to big end cans like on the Guzzi Griso. Anyway, I saw one of these Kawis on the road in Northern France last week, on Italian plates, and the guy wasn't exactly going slowly, so upright riding position or not, they seem okay for distance as well as town use. And the pipes just give it a signature, that's all - so you know what it is that just passed you.

I had to read it twice to get it too, but what he was trying to say is the new model has Showa forks, the previous model had Kayabas....

What you've got here is a bargain basement Buell with a "modern tech" (whatever that means) engine. The exhaust and swing arm are direct ripoffs.

I'll keep my ZRX1200R, Thank you. Much better looking and more functional as well.

So what? I like it. I think I'll buy one.



I already have a Buell Lightning.

I've got one of those weird desires for a TL-R.

I wasn't complaining. Just noting that Kwacker has the good sense to copy Buell. I plan on getting a test ride on one somehow. It's like a V-Strom that isn't completely ugly.

I likes the bike. I need to see torque numbers with an aftermarket exhaust system. or just add cans. I ride a RSWARRIOR here in FLORIDA, its a torque monster, great for my type of old grey haired riding, gas it then slow down to cruuze.
