Looks like Kawasaki is reaching back a bit deeper into the ZRX gene pool. Like, but this is RETRO to me. java

I like it. I prefer a bike where the engine is on display . . . one of the reasons I like the BMW boxers

I rode Kawasaki's from 1973 to 2001. Had a bunch of them including a silver 1977 kz1000r .
This new one looks good. If I had all the money I'd have one of everything. thumbsup

The classic brown/orange std. version looks very close to the original. I like it, but I am biased as I have always had a soft spot for Kawasaki. The best part is that I'm sure the new one goes, stops and turns way better than the original. Emissions issues aside, could you imaging what a modern H2 750 triple would be like...for sure just as scary to ride, but in a good way and not because you were fearing for your life.


If the good old days were so damn good, why did we bother to invent modern times?

My "Shop" skills suck, but I added the Eddie Lawson Replica/ZRX blue strip and added some yellow to the green to make it more lime-ish. Much better.

This GSXR Retro 1100 is looking pretty sweet to me. I don't know if it's even going into production but slick if you were a Suzuki guy say back in 1986.

I have been waiting for this one... & am drooling! My posse all rode Zeds & CBs back in the early 80s. Today, none of us ride Japanese.
I'm going to go have a look as soon as my local Dealer receives them. May well trade my Steet Triple in if it checks all the right boxes. He sells Triumph too.
Probably in the minority here, but I'm loving the retro craze. Keeping my '07 Bonnie though. Bring it on....🤗
