    No, since they were made for the Swedish market only unfortunately they went out of stock a long time ago.

    This is BTW the flour company's copyrighted logo that prohibited Honda from using their wing logo in Sweden. Very easy to confuse with the Honda logo, don't you think? :D

    I was working at a Kawasaki dealer in 84 & 85. I got a chance to test one of the first 900 Ninja's we received. It felt like my GPZ750, but with more of everything. What a nice bike to ride, even today.

    Heat shroud takes most of the heat! But........on really warm days in traffic it will give your leg a exhaust tan!

    I owned the vastly more powerful KE-125 back in the 90's. Doesnt look like they have changed them much other than a square tailight and the tank is a bit different.
    I would guess they are no longer sold here in the states because of the evil polluting two stroke motor but Kawasaki may still sell them in other markets?

    Drum brakes, I bet a lot of younger riders have never heard of them.:huh

    This gal was 750 (checked receipts again) and I put some cash into CDI box, air filter, a set of plugs, oil filter, and a VRR. She also included the fairing shown elsewhere on my photobucket page, as well as the sissy bar and luggage rack. I did get a set of soft saddle bags and a touring rucksack set for her. I only need bag supports now (they are rubbing on the shocks).

    This is the other side, and the fairing...
