I suspect many aren’t sweet on the gray color scheme, gray Cafe is the best color scheme so far IMO
Opinions are like, uh
Well, it is at least glossy gray, that's something...eh?
I had a few minutes, so I went Googling. Other than the fake shocks and super cut down seat, I'd love to do that - just have to find a crashed Cafe first.
The Doremi web site is pretty void of details with things like prices, so I guess if you have to ask, you can't afford it.
Which is sadly the case for me.
^Other than the bogus boingers (which I also hate on principal), the only other "off" thing is the seat. The rider's position looks to low (for me, anyway), too much height and angle on the little passenger part. My seat guy could fix all that easily, though.
I like the front fender and think the gold wheels would look great against my green bike. Maybe when it is time to change tires.... I was shopping for a Honda cb650r with the red paint and gold wheels, but none of the dfw dealers would get me one.
I don't want to derail this thread any more, so I posted some photos I took at the shop that's going to freshen up my ELR.
They are in the vintage Japanese thread in Olds Cool.
I saw the grey color scheme on a bike in the local dealer last week, seriously? I just can't wrap my head around that color choice considering all the other great colors Kawi has offered.
I'm still quite pleased with the brown/orange scheme on mine, not a common color for any other bikes.
And in the end I picked up a sweet sub 2000 mile 2018 same color scheme as yours
Since you seem to like the older bikes, I'll post this shot again.
Thanks. Keep em coming. The Z900RS will be a classic one day too
Yeah, my local dealer has a new grey RS Cafe on the floor.
Typically, to me, most motorcycles look better in the flesh than in photos, but I was really underwhelmed by the grey Cafe. It just looks bland.
That’s the whole idea, understated elegance.
Opposite of 2019 look at my killer Kawasaki green, which is also a way, way cool paint scheme and I’m glad they exist but I like a bit of anonymity
I like all the OE colors but the 2020 green Cafe is just meh, I’d paint that one before it was broken in.
As a younger man my boss and coworkers would just shake their heads as me and my bro tore down our brand new ricerockets for paint.
If my Jaffa RS 900 ever gets a rash I’ll for sure paint it solid gloss black with the white KAWASAKI emblems but it’s just too beautiful to paint, the tail strips are even clear coated over smooth from factory
2nd custom paint choice, shiny metallic silver with retro gray stripes on upper tank, fender and tail
I rode a demo cafe last month and now I want one so bad it's driving me nuts. I keep telling myself to wait until winter but I don't wanna!
I'm in the Cincy area and was wondering what everyone does about test rides prior to buying? My previous bikes (Triumphx3, KTM, BMW) all allowed test rides. Sitting on a bike in the showroom has never resulted in a sale for me. You guys have any suggestions?
I usually check the Kawi site to see when their demo truck will arrive locally:
I've also had luck renting bikes from Twisted Road and Riders Share. The $90-$150 cost for a 24 hour rental is well worth it, especially if I'm considering buying a particular model.
I rode it at a demo truck event.
No demo rides near me. So no sale. Guess I'll have to find a used one somewhere.
