I remember back in the late '70's when Kawasaki launched this model. At the time I recall saying to myself "What in the hell would anyone want with a 1300cc six banger? I mean, really, just how BIG a MC engine do we need?"
Of course that was back in the days when 750cc was considered big and then Norton upped the ante with its 850 Commando.
Heck, I remember seeing a Suzuki Titan 500cc 2-smoke and thinking that's the kind of bike a guy could ride cross country. I was so innocent back then....
