Kawasaki has lots of new 2011 models up on their website now. Lots of great looking bikes with some interesting color choices. Yeah, I know I get excited a lot about colors when there are a lot more important things to be concerned about when bike shopping, but color adds to that excitement factor, which is why a lot of us ejoy riding in the first place. I was most interested in the following 3:
Ninja 650R – now available in orange!
Z1000 – WOW!! This bike looks awesome to me. The green and black looks even better than the white and orange from last year. It will be interesting to see how it sells here in the US. Hmmmm, am I ready for 1043 CC’s? (probably not)
Ninja 1000 – A surprise new model. A ZX-10 for the street. Looks like a cross between the ZX-10 and the Z1000 to me with a touch of the Concours 14.
And since we discuss the Ninja 250 so much on here… here is the link to the 2011 model:
One dissapointment to me was the looks of the 2011 Versys. It’s not for me anyway because of the tall seat height, but I know it gets mentioned a lot on here.
And a question that came up… is Kawasaki going to have a 2011 Er-6n or are they giving up on it already? So far, they are still showing only the 2010 model.October 7, 2010 at 2:17 pm #28605briderdtParticipant
THough I’m loathe to pay the insurance on a liter bike, I really like the look of that Ninja 1000.October 9, 2010 at 5:52 pm #28609WeaponZeroParticipant
The Ninja 1000 essentially nothing more than a faired Z1000, which is not a bad thing at all as it is a FAR better street bike than the ZX-10R. My money is on it being the best all-around large displacement street/sportbike on the market now that Honda has turned the VFR into an outright full-blown sport tourer.October 12, 2010 at 6:38 pm #28626JackTradeParticipant
I’d like to know as well. I really like the ER-6n, but that flat black color (and the oddball gauge setup) is keeping me from getting one.November 1, 2010 at 4:59 pm #28729jcwhiteParticipant
Is kawi marketing the new 400R in the states? I’m in Canada, and it’s the one that I’m far and away the most excited about – it’s more or less a 650R with a smaller, parallel twin engine, EFI, and it fits nicely into the cheapest insurance bracket (which is scaled by CCs). Take a look at it:
I know you folks have less of a market for smaller bikes, but I would have thought they’d make that available to the south.November 14, 2010 at 7:57 pm #28786JtownJJAParticipant
about the Er-6n today while looking through the Cycle World magazine at the grocery store. The new Z750R.
Really nice looking bike. Has the appeal of the new Z1000, but not the size, or price, or high insurance cost. At least not AS high. I read the article here and tried to figure out if this is for-sure coming to the US or not. I didn’t see anything definite, but I sure hope that it does.
