What if Kawi Never Made the 10?

I've noticed a couple of people coming on here asking about what bike they should get. So here it is people, a list of what we'd get if the 10R was never made.

EDIT***Because who on this forum in their right mind would suggest anything other than a 10R? I didn't list any Kawasaki bikes because too many of us here bleed green. I know most of us would just go with the 14 or 6R. I left them out because it wouldn't be a fair fight!!!

First of all this site wouldn't exist for people to ask if there was no 10R.

But if your asking for what everyones guess is what they would be riding if the 10R never existed that's a hard one to think about. I guess for me it is possible I would still be riding my 9R or a R1 maybe even the ZX14, but can't imagine anything else :headshake

I just added a poll. I hate to imagine a world without a 10R. I think I'd be happy enough with any of the other literbikes though.

Might want to add "other" or "Keep My Old Bike" your choice or can help if you like. I did change your title though as you forgot to add 10R as that was the main question but not in the Poll title.

In '04 when I got my bike, the 1000RR was a pig (my how things have changed) and the R1 was underpowered. The looks of the 9r never floated my boat so I would have stayed with Suzuki no doubt, probally a GK1.
