    At least as far as bodywork Kaw's really going towards the sporty side of things with the 650 and 1000. Looks great from here. She's not too shabby either!

    Jaw dropping, with Nissin calipers, gear indicator and a slipper clutch its a great improvement. Also looks like the shifter has a linkage arm now instead of the standard shift lever.

    Some good, long-anticipated improvements there.
    It is a much better upgrade for existing 1st and 2nd Gen Ninja 650 (650R) owners over the 3rd gen, assuming the ride position hasn't been compromised.

    Wait a second, did they really do away with showing the off-set rear shock? I thought that was a huge signature with the 650. Not a huge deal to me honestly, but I always thought it looked really cool

    Great catch, Ebinho.

    The full specs are already up at the Kawasaki UK page. It looks like part of the weight reduction was gained through lazyness, they reduced the gas tank size slightly, by about .2 US gallons if Google did my math correctly. Perhaps the gain in mileage will offset the loss of gas, but Kawi blew the opportunity to increase range by not giving us the 4.5 gallon tank from the Ninja 300.

    I'm going to have to wait for them to arrive in person to determine whether my Kriega US 40 seat bags and Ortlieb low profile saddle bags will fit securely.

    I like the improved seat height. But the bars now seem to be less easily modified. I hope that the clip ons are heated-grip friendly steel instead of heat-robbing aluminum.

    My OCD will be kicking in soon.

    This would be the only sub 430 pound, 65 whp, faired street bike in USA if I am not mistaken? (Until Yamaha throws fairings on the FZ-07 if they ever do.)

    Looks like they went with a central mounted rear shock.

    I was really hoping they would add cruise control, something every touring style bike should have.
