I was on a recent flight and spent the time listening to the Keefer 250/450 podcasts. I found it interesting that Keefer and some of the test riders seem pretty high on the Comfort of the Kawasaki Frame/Chassis. The consensus was that it was less rigid and more comfortable to ride than the others such as Honda, Suzuki, and Yamaha. (Not that it was the best bike or had the best suspension) They also liked how narrow it was. Just curious what everyone who has thinks? I haven't had the opportunity to ride a new frame KX. I have always read good reviews on the current KTM frame and its steel frame bump absorption/comfort. How do you think all the bikes compare in this regard?

I, too, have to give the Kawasaki “Best Japanese Chassis”; but, I don’t think it’s better than KTM or Husky.


I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

It seems Kawi was the only Japanese Manufacture to take weight loss seriously. If they would only fix some of the annoying things like Chain Guide, Clutch, etc. After Kawi goes back to Spring Forks it should be a helluva bike.
