Kawasaki has introduced a new sport 4 wheeler, the KFX 400. Has anyone read any reviews of this bike yet? Any info other than what is on the Kawasaki website? p.s. For those who haven't seen yet [url]http://www.kawasaki.com/index2.asp[/url]

I haven't read any reports about the new Kawasaki 4 wheeler (4 wheels are for those who can't ride a two wheeler [x]), however, a quick glance at the Suzuki web site has Suzuki saying that the motor is based on the RD-400E engine. Oh, you didn't know that Kawasaki and Suzuki have formed a "stratigic partnership" on certain models of bikes and ATV's. They are keeping the big boys out of the picture (ZX series and GSXR series will be seperate as will the big bore cruisers, motocross bikes and the land yachts), the partnership applies to the smaller series of dirt bikes, smaller cruisers, and ATV's. Look at the line-up of both manufacturers before you go buying. The Suzuki Suzuki QuadSport Z400 and the Kawasaki KFX400 are the same ATV.

I'll be damned you're right!!! Huh....That sucks.....Pretty soon we'll have just one car, one truck, one motorcycle etc. to choose from. Gotta love it, thats the communist way.

The Suz and the Kaw are the same bike. I have the Suzuki and it is awesome. Out at ETH's farm I managed to max out at about 70mph on a long dirt road. The Suzuki has been on the cover of every ATV mag for the last 2 months. I think it will probably be the ATV of the year for most magazines.
