I would tend to agree but it disagrees with Kawasakis narrative of ASS KICKING. Liters are at the pointy end of chassis and suspension developments and they would likely pull intel from their WSBK efforts. Liters are the centre of the hi-po bike market, thats the only reason I see Kawi going that route.nice figures! a friend of mine sent me the link this morning. i was surprised they came up with these numbers. anything over 200hp is just insanity and yes, overkill.
personally i would like to see a supercharged 600-750. i feel as if a liter would be a little much and the rev band would be too short. id be happy if this thing could rev to 14k. although it would make sense for the gears to be tall so you can get full boost before running out of rev room.
the second teaser sounds like a 600cc with an amplified chirp after each drop.
