Same thing other manufacturers have done. Ring on the rear for both ABS and non ABS models. Was there a ABS sensor ring on the front ? Simplifies part supply.
(Black is available in both ABS and non ABS)
How did it look otherwise? Did you sit on it and get a feel for it?
Felt like the same sitting position as my 09 ninja 250...but for some reason it felt lighter, but looks a little bigger in the front fairings....very nice.
So they are using the ABS ring and sensor for speed? interesting.
I agree, the Z900RS is a fantastic looking bike, surely a 400 version priced like the Ninja would be a winner.
...i would prefer if they would priced free...
Yes to avoid speedo error when changing gearing. Versys X 300 the same thing and I think Ninja 300 too.
Slackers - where are the pictures ?
I really like that, didn’t realize how medium that grey was with the yellow.
That ring/sensor's purpose in life is to measure rpm of the wheel. Changing the diameter of the tire effects it, but that's no different than the mechanical speedo drives on the front of millions of other bikes over the decades.
I have seen front wheel pickup to come back on some bikes though with electrics. We will probably see more of this as Euro4 made ABS mandatory.
Great riding. He makes it look easy.
I've been following this thread with great curiosity and intrigue. Figured I could add my tenth of one percent contribution.
I actually gave this bike some consideration but what with only a scarcity of reviews and not much out there in terms of real world feedback, along with a bit of aural disdain to parallel twins, (besides I already have a p2), it was easy to pick something else. The pricing is outstanding if it actually goes for 4999 at least in terms of not increasing the price while upgrading the bike from last year's model. Yet it was still easy to pick something else which I got for basically the same price given I can't fathom any kwak dealer discounting these a week after they get them.
With that said I did see one at the dealer and it definitely stands out. It looks far closer to the big bore ninjas, especially with the elongated nose or snout if you will, than the n3 ever did. Other than the 400 sticker on the fairing, this bike looks like a sexy 600 of yonder. It also feels a bit bigger physically than my r3 especially the fairings and intakes yet lighter overall if that makes sense. Seat height feels to be around 30-31ish so if you could ride the n3 comfortably then this won't be any different.
I'm guessing that aside from putting the hurt on the now rapidly shrinking cc's of the former 300 class members, it would seem to be natural for it to take sales from bikes like the cbr500.
Given the brain-trust at kwak was astute enough to throw the n3 engine into a v3 themed bike, one can hope they'll do the same with this as well as maybe create a naked version too.
Umm.....neat bike, I like small-mid size displacement bikes. Am I the only one thinking this color scheme is kind of a throw-back to the late '80's early 90's hideous "splash graphics"?
Yes, a bit, but it actually looks pretty good in person to me.
I would like to see this color scheme in person..the non-metallic Cream Grey ( Audi calls this color "Aviator Grey") looks good to me also. The yellow decals, the pattern, I'm not so sold on...I like the KRT Green also but wish they had not splashed "400" so large........
<<< (See name) Given a choice, I'd ALWAYS choose the KRT Kawasaki green version.
