The only thing I hate about the N1000 is its weight, 230+ kilos is too much, kawasaki should do a weight reduction exercise for the N1000.

@Varun :- By the way have you ridden the GSX-S1000 or GSX-S1000F? Any feedback?

Raghu on the move the N1000 hides its weight well and even at the track the bike is quite a sweet performer. Surprising considering the geometry and weight it carries.

I have ridden the naked GSX at MMSC for a lap or two and the bike is very impressive. Good handling and power but the throttle on-off is really twitchy making it irritating at times. Overall it was a fun bike to ride.

The 10R has Bajaj Electricals??
