'02 Kawi ZZ-R1200

Now this is something that wiggle's this old man's toes. Nice clean looking design, no graphics. Unfortunately, no bags either. I don't quite understand when a manufacturer puts out a "sport tourer" with no bags! The end-user ends up paying $600-800 for aftermarket stuff that could have been provided from the MFR for about $350.

I am glad that more of this type of bike are available, I'll hang back a year and see what else comes stateside.

Yep, the blue is stunning as well. As long as the graphics weren't designed by Squidly Diddly...I like most anything.

BTW blue & silver are my two favs...click on the Busa image link in my sig.

More recent news on this model detract somewhat, first being carbs rather than EFI. Being as I'm in high elevations, that is a real deterant. I also understand that it's fairly heavy and thirsty...my search continues.

Please note "my next bike" thread in the sport touring forum.
Thanks
