This isn't a kawasaki concept bike, it's some german guy's project bike.
The 'heck eigenbau' means home made or self made tail.
There is a list of parts and mods at the end.

I'll give him an A for effort. It looks half-finished, but having bikes is all about being an individual.

After watching it again (why????) he sure does strut around like God's gift to Motorcycling. He does a 4" Wheelie and a 0" Stoppie.

I did kinda like the look of the bike.

At least the seat looked like is was more comfortable.

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.

Cool

After seeing you're alls' posts, yeah pretty funny. I would expect something maybe a little better out of EU instead of the bad music and the strutin' around for a video of performance he should of never made . Should of just showed the bike and nothing else, MHO. The 4" wheely and negative endo was sad to watch, less lighting and more time on the bike would have made it ok.

Salut

Beda, great job on the bike. And I think the video is cool/funny.

To the rest of you haters: Why you gotta be like that?

Beda, cool clips. Thanks for posting them.

Did the Husky front go on easily? I like the look -- but I also like the stock look of the Versys. Hmm, maybe I'll have to get a second one to customize

Because they are geezers who would rather listen to Journey...

I love the look of the bike, the vids are what they are. Its ok to have a little EGO.
