Kawasaki never really marketed the W650 over here. Even at the big shows, they just sort of stuck it in a corner.

When Triumph came out with the new Bonneville in 2001, Kaw caved and stopped bringing it here after a run of only 2 years. The Bonnie introduction would probably have primed the market for the bike, but then it was no longer available.

Now, I can't go anywhere where there are bikes without several people coming over and either not recognizing it and telling me how great it looks, or people who do know what it is lamenting they can't find one to buy.

KAWASAKI, bring the new ones over!
