Where have you been?
By doug dean(Owner), Sep. 19, 2008
This is so much better than I had hoped for in a small light dualsport bike. If you like me get tired of picking up your r1200gs, then you must look at this bike. Even better is the suspension even while hauling my fat ass over rocks washouts and other surprises you see on an offroad run.

By Tim Pilcher(Writer), Oct. 27, 2010
Kawasaki's dual sport offering in '09 is great bike, but off the showroom floor it's a beginner's bike. All of the potential is right there, but it's been subdued at the factory (and even more here in California). If you're able to find one cheap (I bought mine brand new in '10 for $3900), the mod...
