    Nice , i like it.

    Being super critical it looks a little cluttered around the middle of the bike , i know the shock has to go somewhere and it needs an airbox and a bank of injectors but it could look a little cleaner around that area for my tastes.

    It's trying to be Retro and ultra modern, it kinds of contradicts itself after a while, like Pal does.

    Is it made in China ? It looks as though it was or should be. Yet another generic Kawasaki wannabe that falls flat, just like the new "Z650".

    I have seen the other two colours for the RS, it looks more like an ER6 than a Z1.

    The only thing mildly reminiscent about that one, is a resemblance to the Z1 colour scheme.

    I never had faith it would be up to much and it isn't.

    Its a fookin good job Kawasaki built a reputation back in the day, cos pretty much everything they offer now is the same shite as everyone else turfs out.

    No soul, no unique characteristics, no future value or appeal. ( Might exclude the H2R from that) Just another UJM to fade into obscurity

    What a disappointing pile of crap

    In fairness the Honda CB1100 launched with alloy wheels and 4 into one pipes.
    That fairly quickly changed to 4 into 2 and spoked wheels with a revised tank.
    Perhaps this will go the same way ??
    The café racer version is way off the mark for a Z1=R tribute or a thruxton competitor in my view.

    How does the 900 rs compare to a ZRX 1200R on power anyhow ?

    Now that is amazing, was starting to think what a nice bike that could be and then you see it in non iconic colours of which it looks so shite I wouldn't of even mentioned it.

    I think your analogy is bang on Mr C
