If this means tubeless, works for me.

The EX offers everything I've wanted from day one on a new CB. And no spokers is even better.

BUT, wouldn't $1700.00 be a little steep for a additional exhaust pipe, an extra gear, a little larger fuel tank, and a gas gauge?

If ABS is standard...I get it. If not, I'm looking for a low mileage/or leftover '13

I'm guessing that $11,700 includes ABS and if so, that's a $700 price hike. If they keep the non-ABS, non-ES around, they'll probably keep this one close to $10K. Long-term, I don't see them importing both 5-speed and 6-speed bikes.

I was thinking how cool the EX with cast wheels would be. Then... Somebody who works for Kawasaki posted this pic on another forum. He won't say anything about it ( probably can't). I know it's not about the CB1100 but I just had to share.

This doesn't look air-cooled. It'll probably go into one of their high horsepower touring bikes. A CBX-like bike would be cool, but that's a pipe dream.

Actually, it's an old Suzuki concept bike:

So he's messing with us...

I remember that Suzuki concept, never put 2 and 2 together.

Looking at the shape/size of the valve cover & the cyl. barrels underneath, I don't think that the pic in question is the Suzuki. The placement of the pipes is also off, from the Zooki. I'm not sure what that 1st pic is, but if it's the same as that 2nd pic (Suzi concept) it's been extensively breathed on.

I'm not seeing what you're seeing. They look identical to me and the part that is clearly visible - the valve cover - has all the same bolt patterns, indentations, etc. This source has a gallery of the Suzuki Stratosphere concept bike with both of the pictures in question.

It's the EXACT same can we move on please? If not, go start a new "I think this concept Suzuki motor from 2005 is going to be in a new production Kawasaki model" thread
