MSRP $28,000 US . Ouch, maybe I am out of touch on pricing for open-class sport bikes.

This is from the same company turned the performance world on its head in 1969 with the Kawasaki 500 cc Mach 3. What else could we expect?

Website link says it's a limited production bike, so probably part of the reason for the high price. Can only be ordered through the dealer between Sep 1st and Nov 30th 2017.

Like the idea of available power, not sure about the styling. I'd rather throw a turbo on an R1M, and probably will have enough left over for gear like roo skin suit and other goodies.

I have a Yamaha GTS-1000 : very distinctive bike but there are almost no performance parts for it. Other than the cam grind and EFI, the engine is identical to the 90's YZF1000 so engine internals are readily available if I wanted a full rebuild.

They've been around since 2015. In stock form it's restricted, and noticeably heavier than liter-class sportbikes. Of course it can be modified for significantly more power. There's also the H2R which makes a lot more power from the factory, but it is not a street legal bike.

Lots of other options for speed on two wheels. It all depends on what your priorities are.

You can't bother to mention [censored] unless we click a link?

Try harder next time.

The zx14 is half the price. It would work nicely for me.

I remember those, killer kawasakies, many a rider bought it on those.
They would hit that magic rpm and the bike would do a wheelie, an absolute rocket.

My 1971 Mach cost $999.00 plus tax and license list price.Money is worth less and the bikes are way better. Iw as my favorite bike far from the best but when you hit the power band it was like being rear ended by a locomotive .The Mach III performance in comparison now is equal to an entry level bike. The Kawasaki 900 were the first bikes that were actually faster than the MachIII the [email protected] 750 were not really faster. I had friends that rode them. The Hondas 750 were a nicer bike but slower.
