Re: the ZX-12 was treated very unfairly by the press

True comments about Kawasaki regarding the quality and 'usability' of their bikes. However they've been exceptionally bad at managing expectations of their customers. ZX12 is the best example. It was an unwritten expectation that the green machine would unleash a GSX13r beater and break the 200mph barrier. For whatever reason (most likely due to reglatory restrictions as Kawk makes really fast bikes) they said nothing and brought out a bike much slower than the general public expected.... thus in the general public's eye, they failed.

I hope they get their act together and start convincing the public that they're bikes are excellent as perception is generally why we purchase one bike over another in this time of huge choices and only slightly different machines (in each niche)
