The redesigned 2012 is really nice looking.

Awwww hell at that white one. That belongs in the Toxic Britney thread. If they still brought it to the states I'd be all over it.

I don't understand the business end of NOT selling it here. It's obviously already jumped all of the hurdles involved, EPA, Hwy safety, etc....

You'd think they would allow a special order.

I don't get it......

2013's are on the Kawasaki website. New colors are blue, white and matt black. ABS is now an option.

Kawi has the new 2013 model up on their website. The U.S. model gets grabhandles (aka luggage rack mounts) and an ABS option.

The 2013s look to have the grab handles in the back.

I love the white and the ABS, and my recent test ride was spot-on.

This is going to cost me $$$

I don't think so.. these are "early releases" The 2013 Versys isn't due to be out yet.

I rode my 07 Ninja650 for the first time in quite a while today. The CBR250R is much better dialed in and smoother. Better handling, lighter, better clutch and trans, better shifter, better ergos, better seat. And much cheaper. For anyone under 6 feet tall and 200lbs looking for basic transportation, the new Honda is a great bike. Over 6'1 and 250lbs, the CBR will feel slow so the next best bike is the Ninja650 which can still get good fuel economy if you stay out of the revs.
