Well not that i can say i blame them, you wn magazine shootout after shootout yet have a shit load of bikes sitting on the showroom floors...the 08's went damn cheap after the 09's were about to be realesed..$8400 OTD.
If they made the bike a looker in the 1st place wouldnt be a need to update every 2 years..
Hopefully they will tweak the 2010 model just a little bit and give it an extra 2-3 more horsepower and lose a few pounds. Thats all they really need to do to the current model.Trust me Kawasaki always does a little unsuspected tweaking here and there.
I have heard all kinds of things good of the 3rd gen,.........I just aint to hot on the grasshopper head look of the front end!......although I have seen some mods to the mirrors and some headlight lense covers that makes it look alot better!
I have been debating getting one since the left overs are goin so cheap,.but i really don't need the extra payment right now!.we'll see what 2010 looks like,.........like someone else said,.they might tweek a lil and just twist my arm!!
Like others have said, it just takes a lot of money to win championships. As far as the zx10 goes i think it has always had a pretty good platform to start with. It will be interesting if kawis goal really is to dominate superbike, I would love to see that!:mrgreen:
It will be good to see the 3rd gen for another year since it's a great bike!! But I dont think it will be good for kawasaki to release the bike when Suzuki and Yamaha release their new bike on the same year!!
