Whatever. Your dealer knows because he has already placed his orders fo the 2012's.


Actually its the dealers show where the "new" 2012 products will be revealed.  This happened to me in '05, and the all new 2006 ZX14 was announced in October and I had to wait till April '06 to get the 2nd one delivered to Tampa.

Lets watch on the 10-11th Oct., stevewfl may have to tap some savings once again

84 x 65mm!! I'm assuming that means they added 4mm to the stroke which means the new engine should displace 1441cc instead of the 1352 it currently has.  :)

I wonder if it is getting the electronic treatment like the ZX10R did.

My understanding is getting a combo of the electronics from the Concours and zx10.

whoaaaa did they really put an "R" behind ZX14...now THATS a teaser.  Can they back it up by making it a track weapon or is the "R" simply going to be a crackerjack box decal to attract the squids and teens?

My Motorcyclist magazine showed up yesterday.  There was a small article about this bike and they were saying it will be 1500cc and supercharged! A similar configuration with an intercooler is in a Kawasaki watercraft and produces about 300 HP.  They predicted 250 HP on the bike without the intercooler.  That's just plain nuts.
