A friend of mine got to today's dealers' meeting early. I just received these pics.

Looks Good, the MSX looks like a mini Ducati Monster, fun little bike for nipping around on...
The Motard CRF is a logical step on from the CRF250L and looks OK, and the Forza should do really well if priced around the same price as the Sym 300.
Any idea on prices Brian?

Still not sure about the prices. I'll see if I can find out more later.

That MSX looks like a lot of fun. I still think the Kawa KSR looks better but that honda is a 125cc compared to KSR 110cc. I think that some people who bought the zoomer will now wish that they had waited.I'm getting one of these for sure. Looks like a blast. Perhaps a Forza as well.

What's the smaller scooter in the background? a new Airblade?

So was it only the MSX125 that is new to the line up? Any other new models.
BTW the upside down forks look good, I wish the CBR came with upside down forks.

I am just happy they are truly new models for the Thai market and not just new color and stickers like they often do on old bikes and call them all new !

Kawasaki use to have the corner on the big, mid, and specialty market
First came the 250 CBR and CRF 250, and now Motard
Then was the big bikes and more of them
Now even there little bikes are under attack.
So far Kawasaki had done little and held their pricing. Will be fun to see how they react

I hope the motard has got the CBR and not the CRF engine. Motards need horses. The little MSX looks a whole lot of fun and not too cramped for my 5`10" 160lb. I think we might see some new colours for the PCX as well. I eagerly await news on prices.

Yes that is a cool little bike & a good idea given how many like the KSR
They should maybe run with this model & later go 250 & 500 but full sized
The motard Master 250 looks ok too...But I think this 125 done in a full sized 250 would have been a hit too.
Thanks for all the scoops! Nice to have someone sharing the news!
PS that MSX125 all grown up with a 250 or the 500 twin engine could go this route
Bet it would be a hit here

The MSX looks ok, apart from that big waterhead of a front light. What I really like is the Motard. Probably same or higher pricing than the CRF...
