Funny but nah, wasn't planning on unloading the wife. She's put up with a lot of toys around the place and my impulse buys for a long time.

Motorbikes are such ridiculous things, I rarely get to use them, love it when I do and all it takes is another Kawasaki teaser to make me want another toy that I don't really need.

I keep thinking I'll grow-up or slow down one day but it never happens. I bought the Z900RS as my "speedlimit bike" to just enjoy the sunshine on a long country cruise but the red-mist fills the visor about half a mile from home and I'm ringing it's neck and scratching the stand at speeds that will get it confiscated or impounded if caught in this police state.

Let the good times roll.

Z H2 -- At least it has a name now!

Looks something like I expected when they showed the river mark in the earlier clips, hopefully it's the original H2R colour scheme of metal-flake green frame and mirror black paint but suspect it will be more like the later H2's.

Will be interesting to see how detuned it is. Kawasaki have a habit of dialing-back naked bikes to well under their engines heritage, I assume to protect us from ourselves.

Mr Kawasaki -- give us the works, we can decide how hard to twist the wrist.

Yeah, certainly another Kawasaki insect.

Semi-matt paint suits it.
Interesting old school streetfighter bars to get a more upright position on a sport bike geometry.
The clutch lever looks like someone dropped it.
Ignition coming out of the tank because the triple-tree is to far away.
Cleanest dash area ever with the TFT.
Metal flake red frame?!?!?

Teaser videos showed Kawasaki green frame, not sure I like it in Honda/Duke red but better than standard black.

Always difficult to tell until you have seen it in the flesh

It does look like a hybrid with an Indonesian scooter though
