Well one thing you can gather, is that a bike like that is useless, unless you want to sit around and polish it up and look at it, OR you could actually RIDE it. You can also gather that MY bike gets RIDDEN, and has a starter, license plates, and >gasp< INSURANCE.

YOU should BUY it, and open your very own MUSEUM, rather than posting on on KzRider how stupid everyone else on the planet is.

Kawasaki ran race teams to sell bikes to the masses, and yet this bike is only a close replica of most anything that they sold to the public.

I can't tell if this is the same bike, but it does not appear to be, from what I can tell, the article ls from 2013.

Street riding is no fun. Track days is where old retired racers like me take our "museum pieces" out and ride them as hard as we want to!!! No Cops, no oncoming traffic, no teenage girls texting, just ride as hard as you can!!! Just too bad my health problems make riding not possible for a while. I will be able to ride my "museum pieces" again in the near future if everything goes right!!!

OH by the way, the S1 was the CLOSEST thing you could buy to a factory Superbike back then. Or you could build your own Superbike. I fortunately was able to do both.

And I never called anyone stupid either.

Ahh, the 1/4 mile kaws, was just thinking about that today. The black guys down the South end of my city in CT used to race on a straight section of I95 at night -- no doubt for money, or maybe titles. These bikes did double duty as show bikes all chromed out and painted to the 9s and man you could hear them for miles away. And they loved the Kaws, one guy had a Honda 750. Don't remember any other kind of bike. Just Kaws. I'll bet they had 20k in those bikes.

Good memories.

How much are those new bikes with 200 hp and with a chip upgrade put out 300? That's what I'd get.

They might need the money to reface that afront to good architecture.

I do apologize if my knee jerk reaction came across a little terse. My point was that if anyone doesn't approve of what this person did with that rare bike, perhaps you sholud buy it it from him, and do what you feel needs to be done with it. Since he seems to be a motivated seller, you could work out a bargain on it, and start your museum. OR, take it to Barrett Jackson and rake in a ton of cash on it from some Jap collector. Either way, he sat on this bike for 20 years, and put 200 miles on it. 10 miles per year? Not exactly a smart way to invest.
BUT, much like that ugly house (only my opinion) he is free to do whatever he wants with HIS property.

I ran across this Voyager for cheap. Says it needs an injector cleaned, and has low miles. ( I wouldn't count on that diagnosis being accurate)

Low miles would be subjective, IMHO. :-)

I do believe it is a rare bike, but too much luggage for me. I would however like to experience on of these water cooled 6 cylinders some day with a little less junk.

I can't make out much from these pics, but this looks to be a supercharged Kaw engine sitting on that plywood in that ridiculous frame. For those of you doing the GSXR front end swap. Located pretty close to me (~20 miles or so). if anyone needs any help in purchasing anything.
