Let me make sure I understand this. They are going to enter a saturated big twin market with lagging sales? They are going to do this with the same bikes that didn't sell worth a shyt the last time?

Are we sure they aren't getting "managed" by out of work soviet officials?

Oooooh the Powerplus. It's not an Evo copy we swear! It's got the carb on the opposite side so it's totally different!

Does Kawi still sell the Drifter?

Nope. They dropped the 1500 a few years ago and '06 was the last year for the 800.

Mmmmm, more cheap, used bikes coming to the market at a Craigslist near you!

This is just embarrassing like watching the Special Olympics, you can't help feeling sorry for them. It's like for Gods sake man give it a rest, that corpse has been picked over so many times the maggots are carrying lunch pails. It's beyond a joke.

I save sorry for guys like the guy who tried to resurrect Norton. The folly of this Indian resurrection can be seen in flaming letters 5 thousand feet high in the sky overhead that say, "This is a really really bad idea".

It'd be interesting to find out how much of the investors' money ended up in Swiss accounts overseas a la the Exelsior-Henderson scam.
