Kawi hasn't made a sport quad for two decades, how can you be prejudiced against them already? Bad experience with a tecate? Or something from the bike world?socki18 said:i dont think its bad lookin, just dont like kaws at all.
I don't know... Coming from an owner of both a Tri-Z, a 250r, and a 250x... dont have much info on the tecate... But the Tri-z was an amazing machine.. that thing was quick as hell.. I'll have to see if I can dig up some old picsFlynbyu said:Maddog, half these guys weren't even born when the Tecate was made.
I owned the Tecate (Three and four wheeled versions). They were FAST bikes, and had sweet body lines. Back in the mid 80's Kawasaki's Tecate was far superior to Yamaha Tri-Z. The Tri-Z was light in the front, and lacked the punch of the 250R and the Tecate had. Yamaha didn't get into the game until the Banshee arrived, and when they did they set the bar.
Like Maddog said, Kawasaki hasn't totally produced a sport quad in twenty years (even counting the Mojave). I still think the Suzuki 450 is the baddest straight out of the box, with the YFZ being second due to no fuel injection. The Kawasaki is three inches narrower than the Suzuki, and is virtually the same as the YFZ.
The optional black bike looks pretty sweet on the Kawasaki!
