Man, I went to a Open house today at the Kawi shop in Dossenheim, Germany and finally saw the 2002 ZZR 1200 in person!

WHAT AN F*CKING UGLY MOTORCYCLE!!!

And this thing replaced the evil and wicked looking ZX11???

What the hell was Kawasaki thinking??? /images/icons/shocked.gif

And to think I almost bought this motorcycle without ever seeing it!

The only good thing about the bike is that I don't own it!

I agree Duck.
The ZZR1200 is no where near as eye appealing as the ZX-11
was.
Not sure what they were thinking.
The changes are all in the front fairing and headlight though.
At least that is what I don't like, the rest looks almost
identical to my last 11.

Is winter over yet?

I was one of the most vocal critics of its looks when it first appeared. But the fact is that if it does its intended job well, I couldn't care what it looks like.

I could almost agree with you Sho.
Almost. I am a fan of any bike that does its intended
role well. That makes it a good bike.
But I have to like the looks of what I am riding.
Now, maybe over time it will grow on me.
New styling often takes a while to make sense to me.

Eg. I'm just barely quit calling the 'busa ugly.
I understand it's purpose, and now, I have come to terms
with the fact that the styling is part of that purpose.
So be it.

Has anyone read any reviews yet? I've got a friend who thinks it fits the bill perfectly and likes the way it looks who's thinking of buying one but we've not read about it anywhere yet.
