Unless my eyes deceive me... What else did Kawasaki have in 87 except the 750 and 1500?

I could be wrong, but that looks a LOT like a SUZUKI Intruder I have in my garage....
(you know, as opposed to the Kawasaki INTERRUPT :shock: )

Could be. I don't have one in my garage to compare it to. :-)

Obviously the ad has a lot of issues. I assumed he at least had the brand right and pulled up a list of '87 models, then grabbed pictures of the A and B models. Didn't realize pictures would be that hard to find. You're probably right though.

Yep - you're right. I'm sure there are other obvious differences but the air filter jumps out immediately.

That is definitely an Intruder.

Even if it was a BUBF, I don't think they can be sold. I've got one I've been trying to _give_ away and I've had no takers. Reckon it'll go to the recycler when metal goes back up a bit. :/

Gotta love his attempt at a model name, though.
Hey, remember when a v-twin had to have the letter V in its name, preferably at the beginning? (volusia, virago, v-star)? I understand there is currently a big twin called the Vergara.
