Entire 2011 Kawasaki Product Line

Just though I'd let everyone know that Kawasaki is supposed to be posting their entire 2011 product line today 10/5/10.

I noticed this earlier on their main website, and I cant help but to be curious if/what the color scheme is going to be for the 2011 KLR.

What no Ducati Multistrada/BMW800/Tiger800/etc. clone for $7500? I'm so disappointed!

Why don't they stick that Versys motor in the KLR frame? OK it would need good suspension and brakes, and uh a new frame maybe and a bunch of other stuff but come on Big K! Sheesh...

Basically, Kawi does not care at all about what we think! Beers in hand they made it clear they have no interest in what our issues are or what we really even want. It piss' me off when companies don't even take time to understand the market and feel they know best. They flat out are not listening.


As for the '11s the grey one is kind of cool, the cowling and tank have a texture on them that after a few days playing with it I grew to like. But personally I LOVE my '09 and even the darker '10 red better then the new colors.

I am wondering how the dark engine will hold up to scratches and drops. Just another costly issue to deal with on the Gen2s when dropped?

From Kawasaki's point of view why give a crap about the consumers!!?? They sell every KLR they make and that's the bottom line. Stop buying them and then maybe they will listen. I think we will be waiting for a long time for Kawasaki to build a GS equivalent. Personally I like mine the way it is.
