In the spirit of Christmas they give us the silver-balls version.

I have been checking these things out and my drivers license is starting to quiver at the thought. It barely survived the Busa experience. If I was in the market for another bike (I am), I would seriously consider this one (I will). After seeing the review, it's going to take all the willpower I have not to go buy one. I got the junkie shakes just watching Duke run those 9's!! Do I really need one of these guys??

Ooooooo!

"Atomic Silver!"

WOW! I didn't know you could fog a LCD screen!

Yes you do. Buy one immediately.

Nice job, Kevin an' Crew - the added vids are an unexpected bonus.

You guys must be workin' yer fingers off..........

Nice write up Kevin!! What an exciting time to be in the market for a new scoot. I am in the market for a big comfy/sporty ride and really like this thing. This bike called me down to the local Kawi Dealer and I was really impressed with the Midnight Blue version...Its awesome in person...Now if only I can get wifey to understand why my 600 should be relegated to track day sorties....

No. You don't. You should be looking at, say, a 250 Rebel, or perhaps an older CB 350 if you need the power.

(BBar, quit enabling the poor guy.)

Make it Green, I'll buy the hard bags.

More power to ya. My license barely survives owning Bandits and Zrexs. I know I'd be spendin' a vacation at public expense if I bought one of those ZX14 gems. Awesome ride. I haven't the self-discipline to own one.
