I'm an older computer guy who's always been interested in bikes but never made good on it until my retirement. Instead I did car stuff. A year ago I took a riding course, got licensed and bought a Yamaha R3 to practice on. I've since added a Ninja 1000SX for longer trips and carrying a passenger. Both bikes are great for what they are, but the idea of a small I4 really appeals to me in the same way my Miata's do -- good handling, and enough power to be quick if you're willing to work for it, but slow if you're a lazy rider. A joy to run up and down the gears. Hoping it'll be a bike that really rewards proper technique in the mountains while keeping the overall speeds down to fit the roads I have available. I think many others here see it the same.

Anyways, I'm 2nd in line at my local dealer for an -RR KRT and keen to get going.

Another car guy falling into the two wheel world. 馃憤
Welcome to the world of having to wait for what we want and liking it. 馃槀

Like so many here we are all having to be patient for aftermarket support too as well as performance upgrading because who likes to keep things stock, no?

Glad your here so take a seat, enjoy the conversation on what could be, and revel at the fact when it comes we will all be like little kids waiting for the amusement park to open its doors. 馃榿

Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

@Hikari indeed I've been pestering Trevor @bbykawasaki about ZX4 news and rumours since spring of 2021. They had someone else put the first deposit down in the summer/fall of 2022 -- wonder if that person will join up here? I put mine down early Jan this year. They suggested to me they might be getting 4 bikes initially, but weren't sure. Probably more will be coming later in the year. As of mid Feb they apparently had 7 deposits lined up, so you and I should be looking good.

Atlantic Canada is getting 4 total, so 4 for 1 dealer would be pretty decent!

I paid a visit to my Kawi dealer and they're still expecting shipment by this months end. 馃え馃
Most are saying April with a better likely hood for May.
Time will tell I guess and welcome to the forums @Demonekin 馃

Interesting @misnblu, my dealer hinted that a few ZX-4RRs would be in the states by the end of March.

Announcement!
If I get mine this month, everyone is going to know.
馃槀
I think that would be from anyone here when that happens. 馃槀
The forums will blow up for sure.
Pretty awesome actually.

Even the top salesman I spoke with today at the Kawi dealership said he too put money down on one and was excited about this bike like non other.
