Wow, looks like it's liquid cooled too!

I dig it for sure.

Looks like Kawi is trying to one up Honda's CB1100 with this bike. Is it coming to the states?

It's a yamaha, and no, it's not coming to the states. I'd love to see this style of bike in the US, but the CB1100 doesn't do it for me. Either a Kawi with a Z1000 engine, or maybe the new yamaha triple engine.

We'll never see it here unless something drastic happens but they look like a hell of a bike.

absolutely gorgeous bike. I thought it had been available in Europe and Australia, but was now out of production. I hope I am wrong. I really like this type of bike.

seems like a few bike makers are starting to pull their head out of their asses



Lots of exciting stuff coming around in the next year or two

Oh snap... thanks for correcting me. I don't know why i typed kawi...

Too bad we won't get to see it. Sounds like this would be a really fun bike!

We've had them in Australia for some years now.

Good, strong air cooled 1300cc four cylinder naked bike.

I'm thinking of having a look at one I heard of for sale a week ago.

Lots in common with the FJR, without the fairings. Should have added the shaft drive though.

Years back I checked and they had these bikes on the Mexico Yamaha website, but the price conversion at the time would have cost something like $15,000 US.

Nice looking bike, too bad we can't get them here.

And they are still selling them new here in Oz.


Very popular in the U.K also.

It's not a new bike' it's been out for years. The one shown is a 2002 or 2003 model, and it's also air cooled

Old school Retro look!

Half the price of the FJR (new bike) here in Oz.

Direct competition with the GSX1400, which are no longer produced here.
