    I'm guessing those spoilers/wings were made to lift the front end up, thus easier to do wheelie? We'll find out tomorrow

    And now back to your regularly scheduled programming.....

    The new R1 ad. Yamaha doesnt need a supercharger or more displacement to win!!!

    Ok, a little props to Kawi. Hopefully this will urge Yamaha to bring the R7 back.

    Holy cow, $60k! For a 300hp race bike that's really not bad, especially when compared to a $1.6 million RCV1000R. Not bad at all! I wonder if they'll let that run in WSBK next year.

    For 60k I'd rather have that than the Ducati Superleggera.

    Re: Kawasaki to introduce a supercharged? 750 at the end of the month

    This is a full-on race bike that makes more power than the Honda RC213V. It is not a street-legal machine, though I'm sure we'll see the 750 variants for street use pretty soon. If you look at the EVO class in WSBK, the majority of the grid is comprised of Kawasaki because they are cheap, competitive machines. If FIM allows this bike as an entry in WSBK next year, a lot manufacturers and teams will be playing catch-up. But, I think the rule changes to WSBK in 2015 will likely not play to this Kawi's favor, as I believe the intended changes are meant to move away from factory-spec race bikes, and more towards street-bikes. Either way, I can't wait to see the times this puppy puts down.

    Re: Kawasaki to introduce a supercharged? 750 at the end of the month

    Lately, it seems like Kawi is moving away from class racing, which cost a ton of R&D me think, and gearing themselves toward street-oriented machines; where the profit is at. Although it's a good strategy considering the stagnant economy over the years, I still don't get why they can't beat Yamaha or Honda in races. Lack of riders or lack of engineering, who knows. If Honda ever comes out with a 666 supersport, I'll trade in my bike

    I agree. In terms of MotoGP, yeah, I think it's just too much money, but I think that's because they spend more money developing their factory rides in WSBK. Tom Sykes (Kawi) is leading the championship, and the EVO class is filled with Kawis, with David Salom (Kawi) in the top spot.
