    SE Texas. Close to LA and the Gulf of Mehico. Port Arthur, to be specific.
    i waited til the price of a 99 fell to 3K bucks before I bought one. And that was after falling in love with them in 99. Im a cheap bastid. If I call they'd just roll their eyes, it would come through in my voice that I'm too cheap to pay for anything new. Count me as a supporter, just not a contributer.

    Why would you think they would make a 14 ?

    How successful was the XJR or CB upgarde ?

    Honda have gone back to an 1100 not up the way !

    Look around and see what's happening then make a call about what might happen

    Otherwise I call " ZRX1600R" supercharged DFI



    It's not rocket science

    Do the folks at Mama Kaw visit here? Do they read threads like this? Does our "fanaticism" scare them? Give us a ZRX-1400.

    yeah, me too... a ZRX1400?, well wait a second, maybe not.... Would you want it for looks or power ? Both ? But now that I'm getting older, add a screen and a driveshaft..... oh... who's got a ZG 1400 ? Who's got the ZG 1400 and a ZRX 1200 ? If one had to go.... which one ? A "tuned", not "de-tuned" ZRX1400 from the factory.... frame build and suspension to handle it... would it really be "lots" cheaper than the ZG ? How's them Bandit sales ? .... BK ???? V-Max ???..... Seems to me only a handfull.....
    Ride it like ya stole it, and ride it often. I broke 88K 128 Real World Horse Power

    The odd story? BK's didn't sell that well here. The yama, techno-goofy looking. Though tons of hp etc. I'd wait or -almsot traded the FXL-R fir one.

    It would be nice if there was a ZREX/DAEG whatever, that someone who has never had the pleasure of owning one. My son wants mine and I would really like to be sure that there is a standard bike to purchase. The main reason I own my '03 ZREX is because Honda did not sell a CB1100 in the states. Now that I have had my 'REX for 8 years and think it is a fine bike. A 1400cc engine would be nice but mine goes plenty fast as it is. The fuel injection is more what I would want, maybe anti-lock brakes a 6th speed Overdrive for cruising.

    let me say, i have out fitted my zrx to be just such a machine.
    it now has a six speed, geared for highway use,(18/42) has a euro S model front fairing, five star luggage racks and i have 3 givi hard boxes that i can use on those racks, motor has 12.5 to 1 pistons, zzr cams, ported head, lightened crank, 40mm carbs, extended swingarm. and i love it, i have been to oregon, california, key west, colorado on my rex and loved every mile.

    Like I've said before, slap a 6 speed transmission on the Ultra 300 engine and an S Fairing on it and it'd sell like hotcakes!

    Well here we are....another year and no ZRX. Maybe there is a warehouse that is full of Zrexs. Sort of like the warehouse that had surplus army WWII HDs. I know, ..... it is in area 51.

    Let me tell you all, a ZRX1400 DFI would have a W O W factor you can't believe till you experience it!

    I am at "almost" the same riding position on my 14 as on my ZRX and that makes ALL the difference in the world

    The usable power is significantly higher than my ZRX, even though it does run STRONG, and is fun as hell!! The 14 delivers the power on a whole 'nother level

    Re: So...Just Talked to Kawasaki USA...

    I'm perfectly happy with my 1100 and to be honest, not responsible enough for a smooth fast 14 I'd likely lose my license in a summer.

    Back to the original topic... Motorcyclist ran a test ride article in the fall of '98 about the ZRX being sold as a Euro model. I fell in love with it and for a few months call customer service at Mama Kaw asking when and if the ZRX would be released to the American market... in
    February they said it would and I put my deposit down with my dealer before he even knew when he would get one.

    It could work again.... I couldn't have been the only one calling.

    Not to burst anybodies bubble.. But, do you really think that ( in this economy ), Kawasaki is going to spend millions developing a "new" ZRX that they couldn't sell enough of here, the first time around? They won't even send us the one they are currently still making!

    Highly improbable that kaw would have to invest millions. Maybe half a million developing a prototype.

    The economy depends on where you're talking about, last week I was in Central Illinois and it sucks to live there, around here there are billboards and radio ads for $20 hr jobs.

    Not even if the styling was correct ? Think light weight and firm handling that will be reqired of that much torque.

    I dont see how they could do it. I havent seen a photoshop version that looked worth a crap either. I reckon if ducati can make a stiff light tube chassis, mammakaw can as well.

    Re: So...Just Talked to Kawasaki USA...

    I would love to see a ZRX1400 but I wouldn't be able to buy one. Just looked at Kawasaki Japan's web site and a new ZRX1200 has a MSRP of $13,910.50 US (1,085,517 yen). I can't afford that and I know a 1400 would be more. But like triscadek said I'm perfectly happy with my 1100, and she is paid for.
