The new ninja 650 engine is pretty sweet. Smooth and torquey. I hope they are using that

Doubtful with all the H2's they've come out with the last few years... I just wish the styling wasn't so... suspect. (But I do like the super charged Z1000)

I liked the KLR I had, but 39 HP just couldn't do it for me.

(As I said before, it's a great 2nd bike, but I only had one.)

Nothing beats the quality of an old Knudsen milk crate, IMO.

I was wondering if those pizza sized orange top cases that KTM riders like come in Kawi green?

If that's an Oberdan Bezzi drawing, and it is, whatever Kawi is gonna trot out tomorrow, I doubt it will look anything like that... I'm gonna guess more like a larger X300, a sharper Versys.

Here are some more of his renderings/fan fiction: https://oberdanbezzi.artstation.com/
