needs another shock (like the ZRX1200R).



Kawasaki went retro with the ZRX bikes, and now the Z bikes are yet one more decade in the past. So we should see next a two-strike triple "widow maker"?

I'm so tired of 'Retro'.

Everything is Retro these days.

Enough already.

Are all the Bike manuf. out of fresh ideas?

Sometimes "retro" is the return to the good but forgotten principles but on the new technological level. Look at them as naked bikes with relaxed ergos, and it begins to make sense. The round headlights are just a bat-signal of "I am easy and fun to ride".

I have to say, the more I look at this thing the more I like it. It should be amazing if they don't change too much from the Z900. I haven't ridden that, but it competes well against the FZ-09 and Street Triple. Compared to the Yamaha, it's a bit heavier but with cleaner throttle response and a bit stiffer suspension. Not sure why they compare it to the 675 cc and not the 1,080 cc Trumph though, considering Both the Yami and Kawi are nearer 1,000 cc than 675 cc. The main complaint against the Triumph seems to be that both jap bikes make more power and torque... duh!

I'm dying to ride it next season. That backseat looks welcoming for a passenger too.

Not sure why, but the best I can muster for the "cafe" is "meh." It doesn't work for me at all.

Between the RS and Honda I'll take the RS. Most of the naked new bikes are all about sharp pointy shape contours. I don't like them. The FZ10 being one of them.

I really like RS, the rounded corners and profile, nice to look at from all directions.
