I kind of like the Shogun Warrior look, it's just those dammed tailpipes. Even 6ft long HD fishtails would be better. Or is that in the pipeline for '09?



Maybe Ksaki's designers are taking the same hallucinogens that BMW's are.

MO 2.0 in action?

Wow communication to the readers and a review in the same week. Wow! Possibly there is something to this MO 2.0.

BTW Enjoyed the read Thanks for reviewin something that is not just another cruzer. This is a real motorcycle for the real world and like most standard and naked bikes it works. It does appeal to me style wise, but then again in addition 2 my jap bikes I have BMW,KTM and Buells in my garage So my taste may be off a bit.

I actually like the old pipes, just not the gold anodized part. Now these new pipes are just wrong... Rest of the bike I could grow to love.



Hey Pete, any comment on the Manhood Mashing seat contour Ive read about on other sites?

Very nice review. I have been in the market for a nekked bike. At first, I thought it was too racy for me, but after seeing it in the flesh a few times, I have decided to buy one....I still hate the pipes, but thats an easy fix, and its gonna be much cheaper than the new Monster, whenever that comes out. Yeah, the bandit is great bike, but oh so homely, ditto for the BMW R1200R....

Hmm can I hang my HB bags on it? Does it come with a center stand? How much electric does it put out for my Gerbings?

"For reasons that still confound me, the American market has limited taste for nakeds and standards."



Well, perhaps we just have a limited taste for the fugly ones. I personally love nakeds and standards.

That thing looks like more fun than bein' a Drunken Sailor on a week-long, all-expenses-paid furlough to an Island full of Beautiful, Horny Women.

Nice review.. great pics..Aren't the reason why standards are popular in Europe is cause they are used as real every day transportation? I think seruzaWa has often pointed out the best bike for commuting is a standard because of the upright seating position and your leverage on the handle bars. I would definitely look at this bike if I was commuting on surface streets a lot. My commute is mostly freeways so a fairing is a must I think but maybe this bike might work... In the U.S. bikes are hobbies I think that is why standards don't sell.. I actually like the quad exhausts of the predecessor.. it was unique.. The exhaust on this bike sticks out like a sore thumb now.. Great job Pete and Fonzie!
