The FJR1400 rumor mill has been grinding away since 2008.  The Triumph Trophy 1200 for almost as long.  I'm sure they will be nice bikes if/when they come out, but I'm not holding my breath.  Kawi has an ace up their sleeve with the ZX-14 motor.  They could also upgrade the suspension easily, as well as switch over to the ZX-14's traction control and Euro-spec non-linked ABS.

Personally, I'd be more interested in a Ninja 1000ST ABS.

... and it'll still come with a 5sp tranny and an awesome 1 year warranty, standard!  ;D
