V1K Update

OK, so I went to the Kawasaki Demo ride on Long Island about 10 days ago. Tried the ZX-14R, new Ninja 650 and a couple more. They still had the V650, so I asked about the 1000, as they hardly had any 1000cc bikes around (one Z1000 and one Ninja 1000 were it). Most people there said that they had no idea, but one guy as I left mentioned that there will be a dealer's meeting in October where "new models will be announced" and then said that there are people in California already riding the V1000!

My guess is that they will announce the V1000 in October, with deliveries beginning early next year. Should be interesting...

I hope so. A V1000 will likely be my next bike if it comes to the US.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

That is good news. I did demo days about a month ago in Media PA. The V1000 seemed unknown. It rode the Ninja 1000 and fell in love with the power.
