End of the print review is beyond glowing.

http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/ ... eview.html
They don’t put that rivermark logo on just any motorcycle; this one’s built to show just how nice a motorcycle Kawasaki can build. An extremely nice one, as it turns out, in addition to one that’ll blow (almost literally) the doors off 99.99% of everything else on the road. I’m pretty sure 97.5 is the highest I’ve ever ranked any bike on the MO scorecard, and the only time I’ve ever given an engine a perfect 20. I think the bar just got raised.
And the aftermarket, even with mild turning/ECU unlock, will make this bike already more nutty than it is now. Hidden in the print review is the part where he got 42 mpg at what sounds like cruising speed, but well beyond legal limits, in the 120 mile ride home from where they shot video.

Geez, when did Burns get so OLD! lol

Interesting review. Makes me excited to maybe get my hands on one.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity

This is a very encouraging review. I think the most positive I've seen.

Beware confirmation bias. Motorcycle.com can often have fluff reviews where they just praise a bike only to have it come out later that it wasn't great. I'm hoping to see Adam Waheed and Motorcyclist Magazine before I throw away my several grains of salt.
