So... I'm one of those people who watch for updates this time of year. I'm a huge Kawi fan, but sometimes they truly confound me. The US sites had a head start with the new Versys models (the 650 is getting a much larger tank), but now the picture is becoming more complete (see Kawasaki.ca). The venerable KLR650 has some small bodywork updates, most models are just getting a color change (and maybe an engine remap), but then we come to the brand new Vulcan S. If the V-Rod and the Bolt had a love child, this is what it would look like. I still don't know what to make of it... Kawi was missing a lower end cruiser, so I guess this was meant to go head to head with the V-Star. Interesting that is still retains the chain drive. Still waiting for confirmation from KTM on the coming 2015 models...

Seems to follow their small displacement line of "EN"s... the 750 was a v-twin thou.

A long time ago, I had the 454 LTD (half a Ninja). The forks were so long you could watch them flex in the corners... very fun bike thou with the huge pulley on the rear wheel. :)

Having the FZ09, Ive found it somewhat difficult to find a MC that's similar yet different enough......damn FZ covers several categories. :)

1000cc is not on my radar, and 600's may seem too tame. :(

Kinda funky. I don't hate it. Bugs me when they only have one front brake. No green. Not sure why but no green.

They already have the 2015 Ninja 636 zx6r's out. They are the 30th aniversary editions.
