No Turbo?

I was sure Kawasaki would do something with forced induction for the retro series.

What a shame they didn't take a chance - i think if they were supercharged they would sell heaps of em. Production outcomes dictated by do gooders will always end up being boring and the world is already full of boring…………...

I was talking to the manager at Kawasaki last weekend about the new 900 and he reckons the bike is totally built in Japan.
They have two bikes coming in before the end of the year and both are already sold.

This is the supercharged version they were spruiking a year ago.
IMO it looks looks a heap better than the Z9 that has been released.
The new one looks a bit bloated by comparison. The tank, tail and pipes look more like the Z9 of old.
Typical proto getting the world hyped up.
