Kawasaki ZRX1200 Ressurected (for Japan anyway)

Why does Japan always get the cool stuff first? From what I can gather from the BabelFish translation of Kawasaki's Japanese website, a revamped version of the much-loved ZRX1200 will be released in February 2009 (see photo). I'm sure many here in Yankeeville would love to see this one sold here as well. The new ZRX holds faithful to the old ZRX's (itself a re-work of the '80s ZRX Eddie Lawson replica) styling cues, but now will have fuel injection and a 6-speed tranny. Other minor updates apparent from the photo include new wheels, exhaust, fairing, petal brake rotors and perhaps a larger fuel tank. The ZRX was always known for having one of the best-running engines around; hopefully KHI's engineers have the mapping on the new FI worked out appropriately.
