NEW FACES.......OLD BODIES
Just reading some comments about these two junior middle weights,which fill a nice niche in the motorcyle model/displacement hierarchy.
The Ninja i'm disappointed with(it looks commuter trying too be sports bike-ish) simply because in Japan they get things like rad cals,usd forks,ally frames/swingarms etc(for roughly over there same price we pay here),while the rest of the world has too make do with TAT!!!
Apparently,the rest of the world musn't be as sophisticated as the Japs!!!
The Ninja should have had an ally frame/swinger,usd forks rad cal frt brake.The rear tyre should be no less than 150/70 and the power put put shoould be about 40-45ps at crank.
The same thing for the Honda.THAT EXHAUST HAS GOTTA WEIGH AT LEAST 11KGS and the frame looks like it was made up out of spare steel tubing lying around in back of parts dept(listening Kawasaki)!!!
The wheels will add a lot of weight(OEM LEAD) also so you can see the performance will struggle to help the bike attain a top end of the TON with rider/s on board also!
Yes i know these are only commuter bikes built to a(financial) limit but really,£4000 for these,considering what JAPAN sells on home soil!!!
Lastly, the weight....... it's a bit much and as one commentator put it they should be tipping scales at about 130-140kgs MAX!!!
