    Re: ZRX 1200R Meets Z900 RS Cafe

    I like it and if I had spare cash in the bank, I'd buy a low mileage used one in a heartbeat.

    With a decent aftermarket retro style exhaust system fitted and a few other bits & bobs of Bling, then in my book, it's a keeper.

    I would have preferred some candy / metallic in the 900 paint.

    The later ZRX went to solid colours and this has continued the trend.

    The 900 is wearing a factory option 2 person seat - not the standard jobby.

    Note how short the front fender is - even with an extender it is barely along as the Rex one - which has caused a few stone chips on the rad.

    Think it is probably more nimble than a rex though.

    I am keen to see where Kawa take the RS and Café versions in season 2 onwards. Hodna added spoked wheels and 4 into 2 pipes plus different tank shape - so I am hopeful this could follow on here.

    I read an article re Honda bringing out a new 6 cylinder engined bike, think cafe racer CBX, author seemed to think it was legit as the bike pictured had abs, proper lights etc which wouldn't have been fitted on a concept bike.

    Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    The Rex looks OK, but needs an Akrapovoc


    Why oh why do the manufacturers of bikes these days think that by painting a random run-of-the-mill bike in a colour scheme thats "supposed" to echo something from a bygone era, it suddenly turns it into a "retro" that we're all going to go starry eyed over?
    There was a brown & orange one at a bike meet last night parked near a 1973 Z900 & tbh, it looks absolutely nothing like the bike its supposed to mimic . . .
    At least a Rex, while not being a replica of anything, does actually work as a styling job on the Z1000R. At least you can see the genes - not like this modern trash. . .
