Sorry to all of you that think Kwaks are only green, the Black/Gunmetal G1 is the best! Went like stink, the engine is unbelievable after bandits and the like, and the airbox howl makes it seem 20mph faster, especially with a micron can. Build quality seems good, after 7 years my G1 is mint, not even a hint of corrosion. Riding position is ace for tall riders, had to ride an SV650 for a month after being knocked off it and hated every minute in comparison. Screen is great, mirrors steady and clear, the whole bike screams quality. Will never buy anything except Kawasaki again! Strengths: Engine, looks (NOT green!) Ride quality, Build, Sound (oh yes!). Weaknesses: You will be devastated if you crash it! Seat wobbles(!) Crappy stiff fuel tap, hard to find an un-bodged original one.
