Nomad no problem
By Rick Robinson(Enthusiast), Feb. 5, 2009
No other touring/cruiser on the market, for this price, can compete with all of the wonderful features included as standard options on this bike. The shorter frame for 2009 eliminates the need for handlebar risers that were almost required for a comfortable riding position on earlier models. Belt f... Read Full Review

POS 2009 NOMAD
By Tom Espinoza(Enthusiast), Jul. 19, 2009
Im in the market for a new bagger, I test rode the new NOMAD after hearing and reading on how great the bike was. It didn't take long to find out this bike was not for me. The new tranny clunks into every gear on the new 6 speed. I'm 6'2" and feeling how comfortable the 2000 LT was I thought ... Read Full Review

Kawasaki hit a home run wi... Read Full Review

for nearly half a century among other brands, I wanted something new, Metric and preferably water-cooled, shaft driven that also "handled" in a bagger format. I found what I wanted in a new 2008 Blue & silver Kawasaki Nomad 1600.

Boy am I g... Read Full Review

Don't buy it.
By Randall Stafford(Owner), Jul. 20, 2009
It's almost August of 2009 and still can't buy accessories for mine. I also had to take it back for the back seat that kept poking me in the back. That belt is also not what I want. Needless to say, dealers won't let you drive them. Mine whines all the time due to the belt. Dealer says that's n... Read Full Review
