the engine in the ninja 1000/ Z1000SX is a beast (fabulous mid-range)! Would make for a delish paved road tourer....

Maybe, but if Kawq can bring it in for under $10 grand US and under 450 lbs. It'll sell.

did not get the concept that the pic a page back is just a photoshop job?
the real bike is on page 1 and that seat looks comfy.

I think the V-Strom just lost its title.

What a Beastly Beast. It looks worse at the front than a GS/A and that's saying something.

Good work Kawasaki, You just raised the bar another notch.

You will never be able to un-notice that.

Will be interesting to see what it is like. on the road.

I might have to take holidays to test ride all this new stuff.

Ya, Kawi is really struggling with the front end styling, it just doesn't work. The rest of the bike looks fine, just like the Versys 650. They need to toss that vertical headlight setup and just start over and give both Versys a nice looking front end.

Maybe they can hire an Italian for a couple hours.......


I think my Vstrom looks down right beautiful in comparison and I thought I'd NEVER say that...... well except....... when making references to BMW's master piece the GS. At least BMW didn't even try to make it styled, it's just "assembled".

As I said a couple of years ago for its sibling the 650, its the poor man's Multistrada. More so for this new one. Nice, anyway. Does it come in black too?

Well, I kind of like it. Look like a heavy duty bike to me. They say the tank is 21 liters, with a range of 400 km. I hope they are right about that.
