We at MO -- always the blacksheep of the industry -- say a resounding"no", building a bigger, meaner mousetrap isn't cheating. In fact, weapplaud Kawasaki for their MO Supersport Shoutout victory: If'n youcan't beat 'em, cheating your way to the top with a ringer bike isdownright gnarly if you ask us, IF, and this is an important if, you keepthe price the same. If it cost not a penny more, why not get more bang foryour buck? Who cares that Kawy busted past some perceived, 600cc classrule? History is written by the victors, and in this case the ink saysKawy and their plan of bringing a 636 to the masses is nothing short ofbrilliant.
