Night of the UnNaked

Night of the UnNaked

Contrary to rumors we have heard, Kawasaki has no plan to release a new version of its retro W650 from a decade ago (and if it does have that plan, the bike is not coming to America). Reliable sources, however, do inform us that there will be a_ faired_ version of the excellent Z1000 naked bike, winner of our Best Standard award for 2010.  The new bike is also supposed to have even more upright ergos than the Z1000. And if you're trying to picture what that will look like, picture the Ninja 650R, says our source. Could be good.
