    I`ll just bring the 2021 Fireblade against it, with slight ECU unlock and with just above 7k RPM this will burst 10R(Vtec yo). I suppose Autocar will miss that comparison between 10R and RR R

    Slowly Kawasaki design starting to look like Panigale from front

  • Manideep

    @8:52 No special feeling .. Like the panigale ??? . The last time i've noticed Ducati owners having special feeling died with expenses on their Ducatis, some complain and some don't. Its a Kawasaki, meaning, it's here to change course and up the ante without costing much.

  • Richik Dutta

    If possible then please review the new cbr 250 rr 2021 model.(white and red combo colour one would be great)

    It's wrong to assume customers in this segment doesn't care about pillion seat, every guy wants to ride with her girlfriend in a superbike.

    I love autocar Reviews. They are no nonsense and straight to the point. If you want to get to know a product fully in minimum possible time watch Autocar reviews. Their favourite road to test machines is Lonavla-Amby Valley Road.

    Thanks Rishaad, superbly detailed first ride review once again. More committed ergos, my God. I had a short ride on a friends bike a year or so ago and my wrists were complaining. Don’t really feel the need for cruise control on rockets such as these at all, don’t know why they even bother. But I guess since BMW did it, Kawasaki must. Cheers

    • Rishaad Mody

    review for CBR650R BS6 !?


    Fuck.. this man is really tall. Like very very tall. That's why he is having complain about seating posture. An average height person like 5.7 or above will find it pretty comfortable.

      Have you seen the V strom pricing, it is the same bike with a BS6 compliant engine. I would be surprised if it launches below 16.5 lacs ex-showroom.

    Power : 203 ; Weight : 207 With an aftermarket full system exhaust the power to weight ratio would go crazy 🤯 Props to Kawasaki


      With ram air intake power goes upto 213 hp

    • Manideep
