I hope it's faster and lighter than the last remake because it certainly wasn't fast or light enough for me.

Default Innaresting

I think it is funny how an article about a new Kawasaki has a big flash ad featuring Yamaha prominently right at the beginning of it. At first glance, it appeared to be an article about Yamahas. The new MO is a good example of capitalism at its most hilarious. It's like listening to the radio and hearing one song, then enduring 5 minutes of commercials.

The article itself was just a puff piece. It had no more info than the press release that followed. Probably would have been better to just run the press release by itself.

Man, I hate to be critical.

Let's see, we give you everything Kawi gave us. Then we also describe how the new specs match up with the old, plus make some comments on the new styling and observations about what we can see has changed. I repeat: We gave you everything Kawi gave us, and then gave you more. And for this we are criticized? Do you also poke fun at bartenders who gives you a healthy pour?
