future zx12 Just thinking out loud.
What would happen if the zx12 turns in a zx13 or zx14 with 200hp from the factory?
I predict the busas would start to flood ebay and line up at the river for swimming lessons.

It's been Kawasaki's traditonal approach to stick with proven designs. Examples would include the Concourse and the KLR650. Also the ZX7R. On the other hand, they are not afraid to introduce changes to models that don't quite meet expectations of greatness (ZX9R, ZX6R). That begs the question, does the ZX12R fall into the first or second category? Which way will it go, towards the ZX10R, or the ZZR1200?
82 Gpz750, 84 Ninja 900, 2000 ZX12R (Muzzy Big Bore Kit), *another* 2000 ZX12R (Muzzy custom stroke crank 1341cc motor), 2004 ZZR1200, 2005 ZX10R, 2007 ZX14, 2008 Concours 14, 2014 Versys 650, 2014 Yamaha WR450F, 2015 Ninja H2

Another 100 cc on the 12 and radial brakes. If I was building it. And Optional NOS from factory And go back to Forged pistons like the A model. And get a tire company to make 190/55 rears and sell em with them on the bike, Besides just race tires.
And offer Kawasaki Insurance, Damm thing be damm near impossible to insure.

MAybe i should have said, what would have happened if the zx12
came STOCK with 1361/1375 cc's . 200 hp off the showroom floor!
With Kawasaki..............nothing should suprize you! Look at the size of that Vulcan 2000! Look forward to a ZX1500R! 220 RWHP 490 lbs. What a great sport tourer should be!
