Finally got to see the 2012 in person.

I like it. It is more of an orange yellow color, and it looks real nice.

The dealer also had a Yamaha Tenere' in stock. I didn't sit on it but it was a nice looking bike. I like how they did the spokes and tubeless rims. Better than having to rely on rubber bushings to keep the air from leaking out.

Agree on the yellow, it is a really nice color. When placed under the sun, the metallic particles is revealed, making the color even a nicer one.

The Super Ten, one of my dream bike, but the price is way out of anything logical in my country. Haven't seen any one riding this bike yet, only seen it twice in the a couple of dealers.

I saw it at the Chicago motorcycle show. I too think it looks MUCH better live than in thepics I have seen. All the pics I was unsure. Live it is striking and very cool!

close to perfect for sure.

Nice that there are a lot of Kawasaki Genuine Accessories as well as aftermarket support for these bikes to make them perfect for what you want to do with them.

JT Motorsports here in frederick, MD has a 2011 and 2012 sitting on the floor. the 2012 is in all black and I must say it looks pretty good with the flat black panels where my bits are silver.
