Talking First 2008 Kawi review

Well some might call it ugly but I think it is going to be a force to reckon with in 2008.

Still not a fan on the new exhaust designs;

But I found the information about the processor interesting.... Try that PCM...

Not much of problems to me at all. You can work around the mirrors easily enough. . . as well as the exhaust and fender. After that, it look good. ESPECIALLY when compared to the new CBR1000. Now THAT thing is hideous.

It's rumored to be in the high 190's at the crank. Forgot which m/c site it was on though. Supposed to have a good bit more topend though, so it's possible, but I wouldn't bet on it just yet.

I've never wanted or cared for a liter, but I would take that in a heartbeat. . . . unless I was offered an 848 for the same price.

I blame Suzuki for starting this ugly 'trend' Therefore, your brand is to blame.


























At least Suzuki got it somewhat right though

I saw the Kawi and Honda at the International MC Show. I thought the cbr looked a lot better than the zx. It will be interesting to see how each performs.
