I just don't really care for the looks, right on down to the reflectors on the bags.

I just hope this will prod Kawasaki to add some new features to the C14. Cruise would be nice, ES is problematic since it probably costs $$$ to get fixed. Ask a BMW owner  :P

Agreed, cars are ok with 5 speeds, bikes should have 6.

Look at the body work... front fairing has been reworked for better heat management, and air intake is totally different... mirrors are totally different... seat is totally different... rims are black now... front fender, different... I can keep going, but it's different besides the fact it's red.

You're taking me too seriously.
But in my opionion this is more like a refresh than a real change.
Imagine a motorcycle company making essentially the same model for 20 years, who could do such a thing?
