UGLY!!!!! this bike is a huge dissapointment!

man I woke up in a great mood this morning, and I am so bummed that this is actually the bike!!!! 80's style in 2006??? WTF.... Hello Kawi! did you buy a bunch of RF900 left over parts???? maybe the tooling was super cheap!
It better have 200RWHP stock for me to even think about putting that motor in my 12!!!!

Maybe Kaw feels as if the die hards will buy it anyway.

Put a single sided swing arm on it and a VFR badge wouldn't look out of place, lol.

Hey, there buddy, my RF900 was much better looking than that pig. It really reminds me of the hermaphrodites they used to build in the 80's mixing different makers parts. You know, "it's a CheMoparOrd"

I dontknow, I like what they did with the headlights on the Busa this year......I need to see Suzuki's website. I liked the white limited edition Busa. And I am not a fan of this new 14, I may change my mind when I see it in person.....but I doubt it.....

Hey the 14 is very weak and soft in appearance, the side of it looks very cheep ,the front end looks worse than the second gen 12's and why would they waste materials on a dual exh.
the motor could be it's only strong selling point. my 00' 12 is so mean looking it intimidates anything next to it . but 1352cc! there has to be potential for some big numbers
torque and hp.

Kawi is starting to think like General Motors. "Make it and they will buy it." Instead of "make what people want to buy."
They droped 3 bikes to make this bike?
I totally agree Mad Mike.... what a huge mistake.

If this bike only made 175 rwhp they wouldnt sell 1000 of them. Lets hope the engine can save the bike. There might be enough people willing to buy it for the engine, but they better make 98% of them in black. The other colors make those stupid side grilles stand out. What a joke.

You think only 1000 sells with 175 rwhp? It would at least dominate in the sport tourer
market.
