I saw my first one outside of the javitz show out in a parking lot yesterday. I was in a hurry to get somewhere or I would have stopped to check it out more. I would love to get one this year if I had an extra 15k...or if I had 15k at all.

That video is the perfect, consultant-derived fusion of X-Games and Viagra and it's sure to help KHI sell many of those overweight, overpowered sport-tourers to the balding, chubby masses yearning to breath youthfully.
That bike is an insult to the hallowed name of Concours.
There. I've said it. Someone had to.
I hope this bike flops worse than my W650 did, but sadly I doubt it will.

An insult to the hallowed name of concours? What a comment of ignorance that is!! You might want to engage your brain before your typing fingers next time;)

i've read reviews where the testers said this bike was the ALL TIME FAVORITE. which really surprised me

i love it to be honest, and i am seriously considering purchasing one

that way, when i go riding with my buds, i'll smoke them WITH tons of creature amenities and even 2 up. plus, just riding it must feel so nice

I rode one and it had tons of torque. Lots of heat dumping on your legs. I might wait a couple years and get the new improved one. Still love my 636!!

well for their size they'er pretty quick but it should be cause it shares powerplant with the zx14 but rickey gasdon and brock's performance was running 1 at the kawi press release and laid down 10.80's and 10.90's. that's not bad for a touring bike.

The new ZX14 based Concours14 is outstanding in every way. The older models have a great reputation, but the new styling makes this one beautiful too. It's graceful and fast, and easy to pack it up for a long weekend. There is just no downside to this bike. Yes, it blows hot air on my legs, but here in sunny Florida I am already cooking on the pavement and wearing all my gear, so I almost don't even notice.

I like the new connie a lot. I don't know what's wrong with that other guy. For the money, I'd like to see a few improvements though.

Kawi should market this to the police depts instead of letting BMW have the market. Imagine if you saw connie coming up behind you with flashing lights. You can lose the HD pretty quick and even the K1200 on open road but a 170mph police cruiser!

I love my C14. I have 10K miles on it now and the more miles I put on this bike the faster it gets. I installed a set of Michelin Pilot Power 2s in September and the bike turns even better.. I ride with a bunch of sportbikes and have never been left behind in the corners. The bike is a BMW killer for 8K less !

Some jurisdictions across the country have gone to the C14.

I was out on mine right after buying it, and was behind some slow minivan driving in the fast lane. I flashed the high-beams with the little trigger thing the bike has, and the minivan panicked and thought I was a cop, and pulling them over.

I cussed them out inside my helmet, double-down shifted, and the front tire came off the ground as I passed them. I wheelied the bike from pure torque at 85 mph.

I am a new Connie owner and I am loving the bike.
