Congratulations — bikes just don’t come much nicer than that new (M) R model.Whelp....the deed is done. 1st person at my local beemer dealership to put a deposit down on this badboy. I have the first dibs on any M that gets to the dealership. Funny thing is.... they cant tell me which ones they will get. BMW tells the dealership you are getting this many of these. So I asked for the White Lightening but if the Black one is the first one they get, Ill be getting the black with the M competition package which isnt available in the white color. Oh well. 20 years of marriage and this is my present. super stoked
My street legal bike is a Husky 701 SM. It's a ton of fun, and feels surprisingly practical for local commuting. Upright riding position, good gas milage, counterbalanced engine doesn't vibrate much. It wouldn't be my first choice for long rides or lots of highway miles, but aside from that, I love it. It's the bike that got me back on the racetrack last summer and it's super forgiving/easy to ride. Letting the back wheel break loose on dirt roads is a riot. Mine is pretty stock, some Cycra hand guards, fuel dongle, and wings exhaust is about it. The dongle and exhaust are must haves (stock pipe with cat runs HOT).Anyone ever get a chance to ride a big boy SM?
iv owned the 400 for a few years and it was fun as all get out!
With today's latest tech, it's going to be at least 550lb if they expect 200 miles of range. If they keep it under 600 lb, I'll sign on the dotted line.Wow, that looks cool! I found a 200 mile range, but can't seem to find a weight anywhere...
The odd thing about EVs is the balance in charging, power, weight, price:The range is right. It would be great if the charging times are acceptable.
In my opinion, the #1 reason to go EV is performance in the real world. Instant full power at all altitudes and speeds.There've been big improvements over the last decade. I'm hoping that the improvements continue.
I'm kinda old fashioned regarding e-vehicles. I've regarded getting off of oil to be in our national interest since the 73 Arab Oil Embargo. Even with fracking, oil continues to be a strategic weakness because international markets can be easily manipulated. I also support the environment, but I've had an interest in alternative fuel vehicles for several decades because of the dependence our economy has on oil.
I absolutely love my 400... but I'd be lying if I said I didn't like the look, smell and sound of a Ducati.. their pearl white looks amazing. Being a small female though, I doubt I'll ever end up getting one. For now I'm happy with my 2022 ninja 400, I've been customizing it and plan on keeping her for a while. I've even named her lolHey
Just wondering what plans (if any) you have as to your next bike? I assume most have Kawasaki 400's here, what are your future plans for it? How long do you plan to keep it? 1 year? 3 years? Forever? If you do intend to get another bike, what bike? Why?
HOT……I see the stunt cage on her, do you be wheeling that beauty?I absolutely love my 400... but I'd be lying if I said I didn't like the look, smell and sound of a Ducati.. their pearl white looks amazing.
