no price advantage over the real thing that happens to be a great product. and at about 40 HP at the rear sorry, V7 any time before this. in addition they raised the Versys 1000 from $12995 to 17995 by adding a few gizmos found on their other bikes. THEY ARE NUCKING FUTS!!!
Not at all interesting to me, looks like another copy job from Japan. Meh.
Yep a copy of a Japanese bike that copied a BSA. Kawacopy! LoL
Jas67,Looks like we both liked to do some light touring on our W650s. Here's a pic of mine, taken in September 2006, riding along Rt 39 in Virginia, overlooking the Maury River, which runs through Goshen Pass.- Aftermarket fly screen- Kawasaki Euro bars - Corbin saddle- 5 Star pannier mounts- Givi E21 hard bagsPurchased new in August 2000. Approaching 50,000 trouble-free miles in Sept 2006. A well-built machine.
Must be the only one, but I think it looks pretty cool..
At nearly $10k, I do think the price is about $2,000 too high. The Guzzi V7III's are a much better deal. At $10k, these will languish on dealer floors like the Honda CB1100's did, and will be sold as 2-3 year old models for $7k. Due to this, Kawasaki will discontinue them promptly, and not attempt to import them to the US again.
Seems something like this is wanted?
I do think that only offering the Cafe in the US is a mistake. I would think that they'd sell 3 standards for every Cafe.
One would think that Kaw would have amortized the cost of the W650 and W800 series over the past 19 - 20 years, Euro 4/5 aside.
Agreed, at least on looks:BUT, I'd rather own and ride the W800, as it is a known quantity from the reliability standpoint. Of course, the W800 is nearly twice the money.
A little late Kawi and double the price of:
I predict that the W800 will out perform, be more comfortable, and more reliable than the new RE twin.
If we are unlucky this is another 270 degrees twin. One should leave that to real V-twins and build parallel twins instead.
