That’s a good way to explain it. I’ve always used “brutal”Never owned a Super Duke - but I hear they're nuts.
Nope, this one came from Japan, never imported to the U.S. by Kawi. Last made in 2000. In 93 it had fully adjustable front forks. Mine is an SP model so it has the close ratio tranny, ram air, flat slides and kit electronics, it also has Kawi 600 forks on it and R6 brake calipers. Forks aren't any better but the radial brakes and the ability to buy pads makes it worth it. Forks will slide right into the stock triple too. I have custom top gullwing triple to match the 600 forks which are about 1.5 inches longer.Dude, that is badass. Kawasaki recently introduced a new 400, but it's nothing like yours.
