What do you gals and guys think about this new Retro Sport?  I like the  modern mechanicals.

Back in 1990, Kawasaki came up with the ZR series motorcycles, that sort of threw back to the older KZs.  That reincarnation didn't age too well at the time.  I bought a ZR 550 and rode it for many years, but they weren't great sellers.  Maybe this round will do better.

It looks a little hodge podge to me. The tank fits like a parts bin item. The cooler in front protrudes. The tank, seat, side cover area is a jumble of shapes and angles. Kind of same for front of tank, triple and cluster. Kind of sport engine tucket into a W650 with a Z900 replica tank. 

I can't add a picture but the early models had some of the most beautiful lines to be found on a motorcycle.

MCN.com has a review of this Green Monster. And I happen to agree with most of it.
