Well, Iím about 2 months away from getting my bike, a Kawasaki Ninja 650-R, and modifying it a little [cosmetic modifications only]. If you want to know all the specification of the bike visit 2006 Kawasaki NINJA 650 and ER 6N The first pic is the stock silver version of the Kawasaki Ninja 650R available in the US. Notice the bottom cowl is black, and on the black bike the bottom cowl is silver. Thatís a marketing ploy that pisses me off! And in the US the frames only come in red, on both the black and silver editions.
Different countries have different colors, and I stumbled upon a person in Canada who has a silver bike with a gold frame. His bike is shown in the second pic. The gold frame with a silver bottom cowl is what im going for.
I was also going to and on gold wheel strips when I buy the bike. Red wheel strips are shown in the 3rd pic, just imagine they were gold. I have to buy new riding gear, but I want to get the bike first so I know what colors to get the gear.
The only problem is that I donít know how I can get a gold frame. I donít know if the motorcycle shop will or even if they can order the bike or frame from Canada and have it shipped down here. If they can, Iím sure it would cost a fortune. It would probably be cheaper for me to fly to Canada pay cash for the bike and ride it home. Iíll go find out the prices of everything pretty soon. I know the stock bike is around $6,300 but with all the stuff I want to do to it, plus the price of gear it will probably come out to $10k or so. What would you guys do?
