So I've been a little absent lately, just popping in everynow and then to post some stupid comments!! To tell the truth I have been researching my next purchase which I really believe will be the Kawasaki Ninja 650R, the Dragons bigger brother!!!
I had one other option which was the Yamaha XJ6S, however I really didn't enjoy the experience( it was a little scary and dangerous too in some aspects )
So behold!!!! The 2010 Kawasaki Ninja 650R ABS

My eye is on the blue model you see above, cause the black version has a bright silver lower fairing, doesn't do it for me!!

Next is the accessories that I have already picked out!!

Exhaust. This is tough because the 650R has an underslung exhaust like the Buells, and while there are heaps of different brands out there, they all look cheesy and don't flow with the overall look of the bike. Unfortunately, my choice is also the most expensive one I have found!!!



Not bad for over $700.00!!!!!! :eek: The photo's above show the exhaust on the 1st gen 650 - '06-08

Projector HID's w/ Halo's.










Carbonfibre Goodness.









MMMMMMMmmmmmmm.....Carbon Fibrrrrrrrre!!!!!(Many thanks to TonyBKK from Kawiforums for letting me use his photos!)

Last but not least!
Corbin seat.

Now I know what you'll say, that looks HORRIBLE!!!!, but this was a custom upgrade, and I can get it done in multiple ways, and colours. What I am showing is the removable rear back rest for Wifey!!(gotta keep her happy!!)

So, thats what I've been upto, sorry if anyone has missed me, I know Virt, Felix and D have been beside themselves lately, and for that I'm sorry!!! :p

Enjoy!! ;D

Re: 650R Dreaming

Well Wifey will only have the Dragon(if he doesn't get neutered!!) The CBR will be sold soon hopefully!
This thread is basically my version of Deltas wish list and the mods I want to do to the new Ninja. We are still about 2-3 months from making a commitment.
There are some more items below!!

Pazzo shorty levers - maybe black with blue selectors
Sportsbars V2 - lowered bars for a more sporty feel
PC V Power commander + Auto tune - More POWER!!!!!
Fender eliminator
Passenger grab bars - For some reason they don't come standard!
and some sort of luggage racks

Good luck with the 650 Dreamin'.... Having both, I think the little Ninja, is a lot more fun to ride.

Re: 650R Dreaming

I thought about the new 650R as a upgrade for next year but I just cant stand the parallel twin sound. I need me a high revving I4 motor. I might go with new ZX6R, hmm...

Thats why we're not selling the Dragon! I hope I can still "borrow" the Dragon for a blast through the twisties. From all reports, the 2nd Gen 650R has had a lot of upgrades and handles on the road better than the 1st gen, but that is still to be seen as I may hate it!!! (Shhhhh, Blasphemy!!!!!!)

Don't worry Met, I had every intention of hitting you up for prices!!!! The majority of items will be coming from overseas, so if you're competitive, then you've got the sale!!!

Gonna have to disagree with you there Muyo, I think the sound of the I4 is too smooth and quiet, and doesn't have the same rumble of the parallel twin!! Each to his own!

I hope so, I kinda already have permission for the exhaust and some sort of luggage rack, So we'll see how long it takes for me to slip in some more personal mods!! 8)

Re: 650R Dreaming

I know what you're getting at Hi-Tech, its because it's a one-piece seat not two like on most sports bikes, but sitting on it in the dealership making VroomVroom noises, felt very comfortable!!
Even Wifey said the back seat was comfy, but that may all go out the window once we actually get on the road.

Re: 650R Dreaming

Nah, as I mentioned before, this is more for 2up riding, and to use Wifey's terminology, She doesn't want to look like a dog rooting a cricket ball!!!!

If I was gonna go the whole hog and buy a supersports, it would be an R6 or CBR600RR, the Kwakka doesn't do it for me!

Oh, and Virt..........:p
