That have on me lately too.

My only concern is cleaning... well I dont like to do it so how does it fair looking dirty? lol.

I have a few friends w the z1000's that love them. Seating is more upright. I'll be honest the only nekkid I rode was Phiber's Streetfighter and I was out of place w the 1098 engine and the upright seating position.

Also alot more direct wind/air when riding; consider that for long trips.

Change exhaust, radiator side panels and headlight and it wouldn't look too bad.

Having spent some time riding a tard on the street, the wind blast at sane freeways speeds is manageable. I have to imagine that anything in the "please arrest me" range is rough, though. I, personally, think the nakeds are much more street friendly than a full-nuts supersport. As to the honda..............the styling is kinda boring, but it should be a solid bike.

I dig it! Glad to see more naked options on the market too, but I'm a little biased!

I think the only styling element left after that is the wheels

I really like the naked style. When I look for my next bike I'm going to be looking at naked bikes first, then supermotos.

I like it and would like to see what they did as far as tuning goes. An inline 4 doesn't make a great naked bike. Anything over a 100 mph and you are getting blasted with wind. Sustained speeds like that and you will feel like you got in a fight after 45 minutes. IMO twins make better nakeds. More torque at legal speeds and they aren't geared to go 100 mph in first gear so you actually get to shift a few times.

I think MSRP is 10,999 for the Honda not sure on the Kawi. Iím starting to get an itch for a second bike and was curious if I was the only one attracted to these.
