    Can't say I'm loyal to any one brand but have a soft spot for Kawasaki as they were the bike of my "yoof" and like the way they are sometimes brave enough to stray from the accepted path.

    As to whether it will date quickly, if you're lucky and young enough to get one of these I reckon you should hold onto to it for life as it's going to turn into a "Had one of those when they first came out - God I wish I still had it now" sort of bike.

    I'm sure all the test reports will say "fantastic bike but on the road it isn't dynamically better and can't be ridden any faster than blah,blah,blah...., but sometimes that isn't the point of bikes.

    I'm warming to it, all I need to do now is find out Im related to Jay Leno and he wants to know what I want for Christmas.

    I bought one a few months ago, and i can honestly say that its the most exciting bike that i've ever ridden in my 40yrs on bikes.
    I've never experienced roll-on acceleration like it, in any gear at any speed. You can pootle about at 25mph in 6th gear, then mash the throttle and be doing 190mph half a mile up the road.

    Its a bit too ferocious to launch from the lights in 1st/2nd gear though, as it just wants to wheelie. So my Diavel is quicker to about 85mph

    Proper Props to Kawasaki for having the Balls to build this Supercharged missile.
