Yeah, the Marauder 1500 was essentially a Kawi Mean Streak with a cosmetic make-over ... always thought the M.S.'s rear fender looked waaaaaaaaay better than the Marauder's "flip-curl bob job"

I currently own a 2010 VT750RS and it is a fabulous Bike ... a larger displacement motor in a similarly styled machine would be cool! The RS isn't strictly a "Cruiser" per se ... more of a "Roadster"...
