Bros, I was bikeless last summer. It is suicidal. No thanks! I need a motorcycle in my life.

A gen4/5 stripped down version. Just the basics like a gen1 so I can then ad to the bike what suits my needs.

See, I was hoping that the H2 would be a 750cc inline 4 w/ supercharger. Nope. Narrow, shortwheelbase, rev to the moon. That would be a proper oddball! It never happened. They released a hunk of shit wrapped in carbon fiber. No thanks!

H2 and g5 WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too heavy. G4 is simply on steroids but I've blown up two and that is a badge of problems for me as all I do is ride hard under the limiter and buy thousands of dollars in tires year after year as long as the bike can reach 100k. All super Kawas prior to g4 are simply classed as needing dampers at that is a badge of problems. cross is a joke; cbr might work as np with oil burning and weight is down so that I can keep tires on; idk gixxer but will consider them if weight down to the cbr or if Kawa can't keep weight down to g4; v twins: ask Rossi.

Still, supers of today are WAY better than anything engineered prior to 2011. The tires are the problem now as I need soft that will grip past 10k miles!

very curious about Canadian criticisms as they simply can NOT ride year around and if ya can't ride year around...well...WHAT DO YOU KNOW! And Track bikes ARE NOT YEAR AROUND! lol!

explanation as not being mean but simply making a point: link is Rossi; if you don't know who this guy is do a search; (I say this not out of disrespect but on past sites when I talk about riding in twists you simply can not believe how clueless others were and I'm assuming that they we not trolls) when Rossi said, "if I don't ride everyday, I'm afraid I'll forget how to ride,' every serious rider in the world knew exactly what he meant.

So, op, are you qualified to judge a bike. That is the question. For true judgement requires credibility and that is why so many true riders avoid non registered sites: they get tired of those that fail to put in the time to study anything much less riding a super.

Sounds good to me blink. I still love my gen 1 but to be honest I think if I was given a 4th/5th gen I wouldn't want to give it back

Scout, I live on Vancouver Island. I can ride all year long if I am lucky. I put between 6000 to 10000 kms every year. Qualified to judge the bike? I owned the Gen 3 Gen 4 from Kawi. You blown 2 of them because you can't simply do common sense maintenance like oil changes LOL. Just go ride different bikes, you'll see that the latest Kawasaki is fat/ageing and nothing special. You don't need to be Rossi to know this.
