Kawasaki Concours 14

Some of you may have noted in my previous entries my ravings about a new motorcycle that Kawasaki was developing last year called the Concours 14. Very spacial because it is toted as being the best of all worlds. Both super sport motorcycle having the most powerful engine in the world (ninja 1400) and the most ergonomic features of the best international touring motorcycles with the most technologically advanced yet simplest engineering for reliability. 3 on board computers monitor everything from tire pressure, engine control to security.  It will be out before the end of summer and will cost only $13000. A small price when you consider a Harley Davidson with 1945 technology cost $25000.
   Do I want one? yes, but and willing to wait to allow the price hype to drop the first year probubly to $11500 and any 1st year model recalls, God willing. Anyway here are some pictures from the last Motorcycle show as I think it looks great.
   Also here is a short movie link
Also here is the press release and engineering specs.
