2012 a ZX15 then?

A Japanese mag. that lays claim to spotting the ZX10 before launch is showing a picture of a new bike claimed to be the 2012 ZX15. Its lights, front guard, can are substantially different but the rest looks just standard 14. Sorry it wouldnt let me copy it over but a few minutes searching via English Translation on www.bbb96.exblog.jp/15614753 and entering a search for Kawasaki ZX15 should bring up pictures. My dealer in the UK says he is not aware other than a few bits from the Concours14 being stuck on the 14 for 2012. Time will tell all but on the usual time for manufacturers to change or update a model 2012 is about it but with demand so depressed will they bother or postpone it?

There were rumours they were testing a 1500 sportbike way back in 2009....all would depend on what life expectency the current 14 has. The 12 had a 6 yr model plan, question is does the 14 have the same or longer?

Alcohol is the answer I just can't remember the question

2012 a ZX15 then ?

thanks for posting the picture but it isnt the one I saw. The one I saw is on the ZX12R page of this site and strangely looks totally different. The one on the 12 site looks more the business IMHO. (as a 6year 12 owner and now a 14 for a year!)

The bike pictured above is so dissapointing. Ugly ugly ugly. Too fat and heavy. Same ZZR14 / Busa ugly front and have I said...ugly?!

The bike on the 12R site (as mentioned by Snowdonia12,) described by one member as a FAT 10R, looks interesting. Lets hope they make the Fat 10R or both. There is a gap in the range between the race rep 10R and the Fat touring missile.
Build me a big "12R like" SPORTS bike for heaven sake....

If at first you don't succeed....take a longer run up!!
