It certainly is a different approach to sport touring. I'll be looking forward to see if it gets well accepted. Looks like a great bike for the right person.

Might be a tough pick between it and the Concours 14.

Seem like distinct tools for a similar job...each effective but with qualities appealing to differing preferences. I'll gladly take one from Kawasaki and one from Honda, ride them for a few years, and update forum members regularly. All in the interest of science, of course.

I'd take the Concours 14. Right now I plan on buying one for a second bike sometime in the future. I think the V and the Concours would be a good couple of bikes to have in the stable.
