Is this the new Kawasaki Concour 14 scooter? You be the judge.

Looks pretty much like a Goldwing, Vision (my eyes!), K1200LT, etc. Apparently big tourers have morphed into scooters.

Doc, can you post a linky? I get the broken image icon...

That's a tough looking blonde on the Malaguti 'SpiderMAx' site, though.

No direct like to the photo. The link in my post (Modelli - Malaguti) is the link to the scooter page. It's the SpiderMax RS500

Wow! That thing has 41HP (30.5kW)!

Kinda cool, in a nerdly sort of way.

The tough blonde isn't on the scooters' page, though. Bummer.

Did you see the officially licensed Ducati 1098/1198 Replica scooters? For the young Nicky Haydens or Troy Baylisses out there. Here's the 1198 scooter from Ducati:

Ducati 1098/1198 Replica scooters? How do you do that? No matter how you paint it it still looks nothing like a 1098.
