not by a landslide. it just barely eeked out the rest. just because it had class leading power. and the cbr and r6 are both down hp from last year. it sounds like quite a good machine though.

we musta read different comparos. the one i read on motorcycle.com, suzuki got the praise for comfort and kawi was one that needed a slight change in the ergos. dunno. when i went to buy i sat on everything. yamaha honda kawasaki and the suzuki was the most comfortable for me by far. i still think this kawi is a little funny looking though. but all the tech specs are sweet.

the zx8 is a photoshop exercise.

not a real bike, but based off the zx-rr GP bike...

would be cool if they keep it light...

Have you tried sending it to Kawasaki? Who knows they might make it a production bike.

haha...NOT MINE!!

i suck at photoshop.

but, a pneumatic valve'd 798cc streetbike rockin' a dry clutch would be the bee's knees...17,800rpm? fkn-A

this one looks like a zx7r kinda...not a huge fan of these twin scoops, but the twin light zx7r looks mean.

zx 8r

why not bore and stroke a zx636 and put zx7r on the side of it.
