Kawasaki is now building a supercharged 600cc motorcycle

Kawasaki is starting to build a supercharged 600cc motorcycle!! A 600cc supercharged from the factory will open another new chapter in motorcycling.

Estimated HP will be in the ball park of 160, and torque will be in the ball park of 80. That's more HP and TQ than our stock GSX-S1000! Ouch!!

I thought the mid-sized motorcycles like the 600 would be phased out due to the NEW controls (traction & HP) aiding rider abilities and safety on larger CC motorcycles.

Do think Suzuki and the other manufactures will follow Kawasaki by building their own supercharged models? I say yes, but not for long.

I bet a more affordable super fast factory supercharged motorcycle will get the government looking our way for sure. Watch the government start putting limits on HP/Power Adders/Aftermarket modifications/Top speed on all motorcycles, or implement some other controls/limits/fees.

I see good days ahead of us for electronic & mechanical advances but... I also see darker days coming our way too. Meaning, the government getting involved on controlling/limiting motorcycles and or its riders.

Just saying. I like the all of the new tech advances that are being sold with the new motorcycles, and the supercharger too. I'm not against any of it. I just see too many bad and un-responsible motorcycle riders that are making it bad for us good riders. Putting an affordable supercharged motorcycle in the wrong hands is a really really bad combination... which will result in an increase of bad attention towards our motorcycling community.

What is next? A twin turbo Honda Grom? Groms are cool, not hate.

"Hold on to your lug-nuts... we are all about to get an overhaul"!

Agreed. I think the supercharger and turbo power-adders FAD will have a slow death with the end of the factory combustible engine. Yes, kind of soon to be over... by factory electric cars, electric motorcycles. 1.5 decades away?

Anyway. It will be something to watch as the evolution of the factory power adder (supercharged or turbocharged) for gasoline dependent motorcycles progress in the years to come.


"Grandpa. Was you honest when you said your first motorcycle had a non supercharged gasoline engine?"

"Yes. Also way back then, it took 2 minutes to download a picture of naked lady off the internet."

Thank you. I'll be here all week.


Seriously. I bet a 600cc supercharged motorcycle will be super quick and light, but at what price? Purchase cost and rider freedoms. Just my opinion.

I think the supercharger thing will end up like the turbo bikes from years past, unless thats all we have to choose from. Sure, it creates a lot of horsepower, from a smaller engine, but unless its gong to weigh less, or cost less, did we gain anything?

I certainly dont have an answer, but for me, if the choice is a complicated, highly stressed 600, and the other a very normal and easy to work on 1000cc bike, I know what my choice will be.

Now, make the 600 weigh 400lbs, and maybe we have a discussion, but if both cost 12k, and weigh 475lbs, its a big "whatever".

I dont know if you guys are old enough to remember the Honda cx500 turbo sitting on a dealers floor. I'll never forget seeing one. "Dont touch" "Dont sit"..be scared to even look......

I've discussed this to some extent with Suzuki GB and dealers. The move to charged 600s will be a growing trend in the industry. Apparently it's getting really difficult to produce euro 4 emission compliant large capacity bikes. Just take the gixxus 1000 as an example. How many threads and comments have been dedicated to snatchy throttle and Fueling issues, all as a result of an attemp for emission compliance.

Some discussion, it was disclosed smaller capacity machines, even turbo' ones are easier to construct ith ever tighter emissions regulations getting enacted on an annual basis. It's was also speculated 1000s will become rare.

I'm not sure how to take that! Good news as I have one and it will become sought after, or sad as they'll be less seen on roads.
