I was speaking to Chris at Cradley Kawasaki over the weekend and he hasn't actually written off the chances of this one being imported to the UK yet.
He also raised one valid point which I heartily agree with.
We need a new "S" model in the range too. From a dealers point of view there were never enough of these available and they're still much sought after in the secondhand market even now.
The more angular lines of the DEAG lend themselves really well to a new 'S' fairing more reminiscent of the GPz900 item that I asked for in the first place. I never did like the bulbous, rounded look of the original S fairing even though it does serve a valuable purpose for the more serious long distance rider.

I'll finish the sentence off for ya
and that I bought one "s" too
Interesting thought gremlin Kawasaki the only big Jap frim that do not currently sell a UK muscle/retro bike at the moment, Im thinking Honda have the CB13, Suzuki GSX14 and Yammy the XJR. Bit of a hole in Kawasaki range
That ugly fairing spoils the look of a great bike but for practical purposes the 'R' simply can't beat it. It's kinda grown on me over the years but I still don't love it.
And I agree. Kawasaki is missing a big marketing opportunity by not having a retro/muscle bike in its range to oust the competition with. Updating the Rex sooner with its fuel injection etc to comply with the new EU regs might have been prudent instead of loosing its foothold on the market like it has done. Maybe Kwak think that after 10 years (yes it has been that long) that the Rex has run its course.

drack1: Hi, Question, I am rebuilding my ZRX1100-C2 I have just installed new bearings to the swing arm. Looking at the diagram in the manual the diagram I believe is wrong.
Jan 29, 2017 2:48:12 GMT
drack1: the diagram shows The top hat spacer fitting to be on the left. But it will only fits on the right side running throught the seal and upto the large ball race bearing. Anyone else found this issue. ?
