Price estimates said $23,000 to $25,000, though!


Less than the 2017 msrp for H2!


I really have to laugh at people that spew out repetedly, on as many threads as possible, about something that will never be seen, believing in some way, it will amazingly appear...

Sheeple, wake up, smell the coffee.. give up on this waste of hormonal ridiculous speculation... face the reality...
I'll also add, sometime maybe try to read more than the last 2 posts in a thread, before adding more stuff...

Reality check, for those not thinking...

Not aimed at you JDS, or anyone else with a semblence of realistic expectations...
Just those asking "why not sell ke a bike with $12k+ adders" for the price I paid for my puny C14....


Man, tough crowd...
Give up folks



STOP THE INSANITY....

Peace out, ride safe.

If I wanted to spend 25K on a motorcycle, it would not be a Kaw.
I'm not a BMW/GWing guy.
I'm on my 18th motorcycle.
I'm on my second set (2nd set) of Kawasaki fours.
First set was a new 76 KZ900 and a 75 Z1B, nos. 3 and 4
followed by my second set, a new 08 C14 and new 16 C14.
I like speculating and talking motorcycles.
I'm an A&P Mechanic and a 5000 hour helicopter pilot. I'm as much a gearhead and Kaw guy as anybody on this forum.
I like working hard and spending my money and I liked this thread until now.

Since I began servicing, and riding, in '73....
I've never owned a Honda...
I guess I speaks volumns, as you "meet the nicest people... on a ...?"

And I've owned Harley's.. go figure...

Its all good man...

Price estimates said $23,000 to $25,000, though!
And still read nothing about CC....
Said something about semi-electronically adjustable suspension... whatever that means?

Looks cool, probably one fast bike, but pricey!

For the record, the rumored price estimates are 23k bps, or around $30,000 USD.

^Yea, but it's MCN.

Home of the Honda VFR1000 with the V5 engine they released in 2008. So, honestly, who the hell knows?

Exactly. I never believe anything I read if it came from MCN. They're like the National Enquirer of motorcycles.

I'm one that hopes Kawasaki will build this bike.  This time I think Kawasaki will be building a sport touring bike that is supercharged I just don't know if it will be H2 based, meaning frame, suspension, motor, etc.    I'm 57 and all my life I have wanted the manufactures to produce this bike...full on performance with the comfortable riding position and hard luggage / wind protection.   The sportbike engine is always detuned for low-end and mid-range to make it meet the needs of the revised model bike.   Since the manufactures haven't yet, I have always modified a bike to make it MORE comfortable, but not usually comfortable.    Right now I have a '13 ZX14r and '10 C14.   I very much like both of these bikes, I have modified both to be more comfortable and to serve my needs.    I probably ride them 40% zx14r and 60% c14.     It will probably be cheaper for me to own these 2 motorcycles than to buy 1 new supercharged sport touring bike from Kawasaki...at least for the first couple of years when demand is high.   After that who knows.     I doubt that the supercharged bike will be that much quicker or faster than the zx14r, unless the owner increases the boost, and I have modified the handlebars, seat, luggage to make it not too bad of a sport touring bike, but not anywhere near as good as the C14 for that purpose and overall riding.    Also, I have owned many performance bikes, and none of them have as smooth a motor as the zx...the Honda Blackbird was very close though.    I don't know how smooth the H2 motor has been.   Just my take on it.

I seen that bike at the MSTA Rally in Marietta, OH this August.    It looks like it is well designed, but like all start ups you don't know how long they can stay around.   I wish them luck.

Insurance on a 30k boutique bike is probably....fun. Only thing I like about that bike is motor. It's just too 'stapled together.'
