Totally agree with that....toys are always nice until you have to pay for them on the purchase price and if they go wrong...personally I would never pay that sort of money for a Versys as it comes into a whole new market and options... :027:

So, tomorrow we find out re the Z H2.

It seems to me that we have the answer maybe...

Z1000 and Z1000SX being updated for emissions but that is about it.
Z H2 will be to the Z1000 what the H2 SX is to the Z1000SX,

So maybe no further news than this, just an engine tweak for emmissons and new colours?

Anyone in the know?!

Would like to see an updated ZZR1400, but maybe the H2 SX is that bike too!!!

Details now on Kawasaki Motorbike website:

998 200bhp, looks okay, but I am not into naked bikes.

Maybe the salient point in the blurb is:

"This new flagship model will lead the Z Series into the future. "

No price, but got to be £15k up?

This will need to be priced right to sell against the comp' and the existing H2 models  :187:
Being 1kg heavier than the H2sx with no fairing doesn't sound that appealing to me, although I do like the red trellis frame  :164:

I like it, think besides the non clocks its brilliant.

I come from a time when 1 single pipe was what everyone wanted and paid a lot for, so like that as well, though not the size of the one on, soon swap that out for something a lot smaller

It'll be mental to ride, no doubt about that.  Not the best looking bike but compared to most nakeds, it's not bad.  The crippling factor will be the price, I'm gonna say £17,000

I come from that time too and agree with you, its just that the Z range has always had twin exhausts since the early Z1, Z900 etc and has become a characteristic of of the range...and very distinctive especially the current twin stubbies (marmite, I know) but I love them.

But how about the z1000sx? Are there any news about that one.
I've heard about small changes of the engine, but have anyone got any facts or are there just rumors?

A search round the web suggests new engine code with same cc but greatly improved emissions to meet euro 5 but also a 10kg weight reduction. If true that level of weight loss must point to a new chassis.Guess all will be revealedat EICMA in a couple of weeks
