A happy GTR owner

Kawasaki GTR: Just that bit better. Having tested Yamaha's FJR the natural replacement for my previous XJ900 I read a follow up report on Kawasaki's new GTR.

Another happy 1400GTR owner

Glad I'm not the only one. I tried the ST (knees hit the fairing and it's chuffing ugly with the panniers removed), the FJR (stiff throttle, poor finish) and the K1200GT (not to my taste and over-priced) and bought the GTR. I've ordered a new aftermarket screen as the standard one is way too small and fitted a topbox for the London commute but am taking it to Germany next week for the GTR Club Europe 2007 Rally. I moved to the 1400 from the old GTR1000 and apart from the screen and the Scania designed silencer it's all I wanted it to be. Smooth as butter and gobs of torque whenever ya want it.

With your positive comments, I think it is time to try one of these babies. Mind at 6 3" I might need the taller screen.
