Was at the dealer today picking up a part and he told me about a new bike Kawasaki is supposedly coming out with. It is supposed to be a 1650cc sportbike and it won't be available here in the US or Canada. He told me to go look it up at the Tokyo Motor Show. I checked and all I can find is the info from last year. Anybody heard anything about this? Or, is it just wishful thinking? I say wishful thinking but, just imagine the possibilities....

If they came out with that it would have to come to the U.S. markets think of the cash!! But my question is why make a 1650cc bike that will be limited to 180? Thats like having a fine ass woman that you can't even tap into..

It's best to be presumed dumb than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt....</p>

What would be the point of that?

being that the U.S. is Kawasaki's biggest market, I find it highly unlikely that KHI would develop a bike of that size and NOT bring it to North America. In Japan, small bikes are almost all there is because of taxes and tariffs and rider restrictions and insurance regulations. Where would that leave the big bike to be sold? Europe??? I dont think that Europe could absorb enough of them to make it profitable for Kawasaki to develop and produce such a monster. Just my 2 cents.

Liquor, then Pounder</p>

I think the FJ is available here, but in limited numbers. They are sold out for '02.

The last place to get any info on new bikes is at the dealer. They know less than we do.

The FJR1300 is definitely available in the US, but just in the last few weeks.
