Wait, I already have one!
I love that lil guy. It's as versatile as the old Honda trail 90. I can guarantee the Sherpa will be the very last bike to leave my possesion.
2007 is the last year for Canada. No 2008s. There probably are some new ones (2007) up there. I'll probably also never get rid of mine, even though I don't ride it much - but my wife rides it most of the time.
The new Yamaha XT-250 looks like a very worthy substitute for the Sherpa. Sit on one and close your eyes and you can't tell the difference. I haven't been on a ride with one yet, though.
It was a dumb move on the part of Kawasaki to drop the Sherpa from it's USA lineup. It has a very loyal following. I guess there just aren't enough of us!
All my favorite Kawasaki bikes are the ones they don't sell many of: Sherpa, KLX-650, ZRX, Z750.......
