Coming from you, Doesn't say much

Your just jealous they don't offer that in the states..


i actually prefer the SV650 w/o a fairing, I like Richard's(rponiarski) ZR750(w/o a fairing), But this is the only Pic I've seen of the ZR750 with a fairing, A front on shot would be better but to early to tell.

Well, New to Canada that is.

Canada might see the ZR750 coming here this year. Perhaps Kawasaki is trying to get a piece of the SV650 market ??
Notice any similarities ?


SV650


ZR750

I like both bikes, but what's up with those front fairings---hideous if you ask me. As usual--to each his own.

I agree that those "half-fairings" are ugly on the SV, or any other bike for that matter, but have you ever seen the SV with the full fairing? Surprising good looking bike.

SV 650 = V twin

ZR 750 = inline 2 or 4 ?

but i will give you credit for same color, and they both have two wheels

The ZR750F2 is an inline 4. I kind of like the new ZR-7S, which is what the faired bike will be called in the US, but I wouldn't trade my regular ZR for it. Thanks for the compliment, Adam. It is a great bike and I am really enjoying it.

Only difference in the new 7S and the picture is that Kawasaki is bringing it to North America in Candy Persimmon Red only. The blue is reserved for the unfaired ZR. Europe and Japan have more color choices.

I agree, all half-faired bikes are butt-ugly.

Pete,
I didn't say ALL half faired bikes were ugly, just Suzuki's and Honda's
Errr... Except the ones with candles on the fuel tank and ruffles around the twin exhaust
