Review by: Jake

I own a Kawasaki ZRX1200, It's a fun bike to ride, has the ripping power of a sportbike and yet the upright riding position of a Harley. Don't get me wrong, just 'cause this is a naked bike don't be fooled into thinking that it's slow.

One time on my way to the cottage I decided to take my Kawi, I could literally go 160 KPH (100 mph) down the winding roads and still ride in control and comfort. It is amazing what power is available from the bike for the price.

I stopped on a hill and tried to do a speed test. Traveling about a quarter mile up a hill from a dead stop I got it going 135 KPH (83 mph) with a couple more gears left to go!

The downsides of the bike are: I would pay a bit more to have a throatier exhaust noise. I just wasn't hearing what I wanted to. It sounded more like an enduro than a naked/sportbike. Also they could of updated the design a little and placed the side mirrors a bit further apart. Other than some minor imperfections it was a decent bike. I wouldn't necessarily recommend the bike, but it's not a bad idea to hop on and give one a try.
