My money is on a Verys 400-x, Its a logical step to put the ninja 400 engine into the Versys platform.

Not really, the 300 was great the 400 would be awesome.

I would like to see a small bore supercharged engine in a dirt bike frame.

I would love to see Kawasaki as a contender in the Adventure bike market. I have a soft spot for the Lime Green Machines from my MX days. Had  many KX's and liked them all. My 2004 KX 250 had a particularly mean streak :biggrin:
When in doubt...grab throttle!!!

Nope, I don't like that thing at all - but that Tengai looks the biz.

Funny how the weekend warriors can design the perfect bike but all the manufacturers can do is copy the rest.

I see that Honda has filed a patent for a supercharged engine for the Africa Twin.
