Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates

im not a big fan of the h2 design, but if the performance is comparable i may be willing to get over it.

afterall, you dont see the bike while you're riding it!

I'd love to see the 636 with a supercharger in the current packaging (I know, hard to accommodate). Imagine - 200HP in a bike like ours (and not a nasty 1000). Woot.

Seriously though if there was really a Ninja 750 on the way I was ready to hit the stop button on my Triumph RS order...

I wonder if Ninja 750 will be identical to the ZX-6R except the engine. Just like GSX-R600 and 750.

The ZX-7R was a nice bike though.

I remember answering the owner survey after buying the ZX6 in 2009, and one of the questions was something to the effect of "...what product would you like to see Kawasaki build in the future?" My answer was to bring back the ZX-7, weighing the same or less than the ZX-6, with 130 to 135hp at the rear rear wheel. Seemed like a nice transition for customers who did not want to go from the approximately 105hp ZX6 to the 160hp ZX10. Unfortunately, they have not heeded my suggestion.

The problem is the 750s are so close to 1ks. It's already a small market and adding another player in it won't help kawasaki imo.

As for the OP, fake news

I was gonna say how nice it would be to have a bike with 600 level power or just a little more, light weight, top shelf components, and TORQUE. Usually when they make a "Street version" they also replace everything good with budget components and make it weigh 70lbs more.
Then I remembered Honda still makes the CBR1000RR lol. All the torque and components of a liter bike without the horsepower.

I'll be interested to see if Triumph produces the Daytona with the 765 motor. They already have the Triples they just came out with in that motor, and it looks like they'll be supplying Moto2 with a variant of the 765cc motor in 2019. Seeing as most companies seem to be moving from the 600 repli-race scene, this size engine could be the next logical step in my opinion...although it is true that at that point you really wouldn't be far off of a 1000.

I think the technology improvements made the ZX-7R obsolete.

ZX-7R
111.9hp/11,700rpm
55.6lb-ft/9,500rpm
dry weight: 456.3lb
wet weight: 500lb


ZX-6R
129.3hp/13,500rpm (135hp/13,500rpm with ram air)
52.36lb-ft/11,500rpm
dry weight: 362lb
wet weight: 427.8lb

I kind of loved the ol' ZX7R. It wasn't the prettiest machine, and could have shed a little weight, but that front end was sheer, bloody magic for feel and confidence.

As for a supercharged 700-800cc machine... why? The 10R is a major success in WSB, BSB and EWC. That supercharger sounds like something that would make it a major PITA to race (in whatever class it might find acceptance). Want 200 ponies? Get the 10R.

I can't see a real niche for this machine, but then I don't work in marketing.

-------------------------------------------------------------

The best advice I ever received was "Just look pretty and try not to break anything."

1999 ZX6R (G2) - Pipewerx exhaust (dB killer removed) | Dynojet Stage 1 | K&N air filter | flushmount front LED indicators | Clear LED tail light with integrated indicators | Scottoiler eSystem | Pyramid Plastics hugger | HID headlight | Stubby levers | HEL braided steel lines | 07 ZX6R radial master cylinder | Bar-end mirrors | Double-bubble screen | Crash bobbins | one hell of an anal-retentive owner.

I just showed a couple R1's the other day what horsepower will do for you. Nothing, unless you can use it effectively. We were riding tight canyon roads and the 636 left them in the dust. They were very experienced riders too. Yes, they were surprised to see how fast a smaller displacement bike can be in the tights. One of them was a R1M. Ha Ha Ha, I thought it was funny. They thought it was funny too but they were like " Dude that little thing can go".
