It's crazy. Unfortunately the U.S. is stuck on either crotch rockets or cruisers. And I think that's why they don't send much else here. Hopefully the phenomenal FZ-09 sales changes this soon.It's like the Kawasaki ER-6n a bike that's still sold at dealerships in Canada but apparently not in the US, which is weird since the states has 10 times the population of Canada.
Thats quite a downgrade in terms of power tho. I'd say the fz-09 is more "on par" with a 600rr, wouldn't you?My wife is seriously looking at the FZ07 if it comes to the U.S. She is currently on an '07 600RR and she is experiencing some elbow and wrist pain, so a more upright riding position is looking better all the time. Guess we'll have to "enjoy" the waiting game for a while, but it looks encouraging that CARB has approved it.
Power wise, yes, the 600RR with an Arata exhaust and PCIII is in the neighborhood of 110HP. She really loves the 600RR, but the riding position is really starting to take it's toll on her elbow and wrist. She is going to be 62 years old this year and I'm just a very lucky man that she rides as much as she does and coaches with me at STT events.Thats quite a downgrade in terms of power tho.
