This is true, and while I don't think the engine stats are out yet. I'm willing to bet they are going to be nearly as similar.lol. A buddy has a s1000rr I ride with. Its so pretty. It looks like its gliding through the air.

i think kawasaki is primarily aiming to be much more competitive in road racing with this bike as opposed to "responding to the BMW"Haha, that's exactly why kawi is putting that bike out. The BMW destroyed the competition, so here is the competition's first response. I assume the other companies will hop on the band wagon.
