They can enjoy their party in the states and maybe one or to in EU . . .

Not like the Honda has taken the market by storm locally.

Kawasaki brings a very small portion of their product range to SA so don’t hold your breath.

If you see the AMID stats, it's actually frightening to see how few plastic bikes they sell in SA. I think by selling a HP2 now and again and some ZX10's and 12's they tick over. They sell a brand of scooters that I think is there money spinner, and now with MOTUL they may be making some tom

Agree we won't see them here.
I am hoping to see them perhaps enter Dakar...

Nice, well specced and engineered, quality products. They will be very competitive and popular in the US - Worcs/Gncc etc..

Surely the KLX300 and 230r would sell in SA in better numbers than the MX bikes.... KMSA is missing a trick not importing them.

Look at the CRF230 for example, how many of those did Honda sell here!? There is a market for intermediate/play bikes.

Agree, also think its a half arsed attempt. Just another MX bike with some minor mods. Will work for some in the USA and maybe Aus. But thats about it

Half arsed? Bit harsh there in my opinion. Kawasaki isn't jonway. I bet they will be cracking bikes and nobody here will ever know really because they won't come here...
They were the fastest sx bike this year... fastest superbike last year.

im a huge Kawa fan but i think it will be the same as the Honda RX , an offroad GXCC type bike, not a hard tech bike.

Will be a nice bike for Mx track mix with offroad riding
