Still a twin either way... Are you guys thinking he thought it was a V-Twin?

yeah, i could've sworn he said it was a v-twin somewhere in the post. i must've been mistaken.

anyway, i love the looks, but i don't know about the engine. i've ridden both an sv650, and a ninja 500. i didn't like the ninja at all (except for it being so tiny which was sort of novel at first), while i like the sv650 WAY more than my katana.

don;t like the double seat setup. 2 distinct seat pads makes bikes look so much "racier" if you know what I mean.

Some other brands has bana seats and the problem was solved with a plastic cowling that covered the rear part ( i bet someone will make one when the bike comes out).

I've owened Kawi before, and while it wasn't as light and nimble as GSX-R, it was very well built. I really liked all the materials and how well it was constructed. Even when i lowsided it on a dirt patch, the damage was minimal due to it's design and materials.
