This place should be updated to "2005 bikes" now, as we are approaching the new year, only 2 weeks left.

That headlight may throw some awesome light, but I'd hate to have to pay to replace it!

I bought an 05 Zx6RR about a month ago but i haven't been able to ride much because it keeps freakin snowing. I have about 230 miles on it and it is freakin sweet.

Yeah, I fell in love with the Kaw, again, with that new ZX-6. That is a sweet bike!!! I sat on one at the bike show...talk about light. If felt like I was on a toy or something....wow.

"More power is always better, and for riders with this kind of thinking you might want to shop around for a European-spec ECU for your American ZX. Kawi tells us that peak power of its North American versions is down about 5 horsies from the European models due to different ECU programming necessary to meet American noise regulation specifications. The European bike makes its peak power 1500 rpm higher than the U.S, bike (at 14,000 rpm). Peak torque is unaffected."

I pulled that from a Motorcycle USA test ride.

How hard do you think it would be to get your hands on one of those? along with the euro flush blinkers?
