Or the XRE 300
Well that's good news, I kinda was hoping the uni-wheel dual sport market would explode this year.
I'm waiting for the spoke wheel model w/ updated electronics
Yes, the Kawasaki New Model Launch Event starts at 06:00 PST on 23 November 2020 which suggests that the complaining will commence at 06:01 PST on 23 Novemeber 2020.
I'm already leaning towards saving my pennies to buy a new 300 in the spring. Cuz I want a new bike and there likely won't be a 400. The good thing is, if there is a 400, I'll be well on the way to having saved enough for one. Win-win.
You missed the main difference: it is functional rather than an ugly fashion accessory.
I'm not sure what point you're trying to make? I like the beakless adv bikes because they look more like a rally bike (which is a modified 450 dirt bike if you want to be pedantic)
I would still like to see a klx400s twin. 340lbs and 45hp. Lighter and more hp than the old school thumpers.
HOLD TIGHT...WE ARE GOING IN !!!!
And the Lord said, "There will be great weeping and gnashing of teeth!"...and maybe some sackcloth and ashes.
Is there something wrong with the 300 you already have?
340 lbs? Not a chance of that happening IMO.
Dry ? Lol
If kawi or Yami can build a 300lb 250. I would like to think they could do a twin similar for 40lbs more. No big plastics, 4 gallons or less. More dualsport. Ya I know im dreaming .
I tend to agree. The naked Z400 with a light trellis frame and other light components is 360. I can see no way to knock 20 pounds off it and it still be worthy of off pavement...but it would be awesome.
What's that got to do with what he wants? I want that, too. The probability doesn't change my desire.
It's really not that hard to knock 20 pounds off of a 300x. Just switch to a lithium battery, switch to a yoshi muffler, ditch your rear tube (convert your rear wheel to go tubeless, it's easy if your good at that sort of thing) and get a Super Lite brand steel rear sprocket next time you change your chain. These changes will save you about 20 pounds. Or you can do it the easy way, just cruise around with an almost empty gas tank.
A heavy duty rear tube can weigh about 3 or more pounds. If your looking for more performance, think of your rear wheel as a very big fly wheel, reducing the weight on the rim has to be good for your throttle response. My bike has been running really good lately, maybe its because my rear tire is almost worn out and probably weights a couple pounds less than it did when it was new last summer.
The first thing new owners of the VX300 do in that thread is introduce themselves as new owners. The second thing they do is post a list of all the stuff they plan add. They could save some easy weight, and some ca$h, by just tossing out the list.
