if they get rid of the red or maroon on the forks, swing arm etc. and painted it black it would look nice in my book. But not for me that's for sure.

Its a starter bike, designed to compete with the SV650.. Personally I think its ugly as sin, but at least they are making an effort at making new starter bikes...

Second time I've seen that pic. I like it! To bad they're not offering it in the US, or I might consider it.

the ZX650R is a states model. Its already showing on kawi's website. The euro version is the ER6N, which is the same thing, only no fairings

I don't think it's a bad looking bike, except for the red.

Besides, it gives riders more options to what else is out there for that level bike.
