I'm normally a big Kawi fan, but the "flames" they put on the 06 636 (or 05 was it?) looked like crap. The flames on this one at least actually look like flames.

actually, they removed the subframe and beefed up the steering head, so I would say that it IS a major evolution. That's essentially the same chassis modification that they gave Rossi's M1 that FINALLY solved his chatter problems in 2005.

Is it a whole new bike? no

is it a major evolution? yes

HAIL TO THE KING!!
