It was Motorrad who signaled the arrival of Kawasaki’s most basic unit to the german marketalthough they warned that it will not take long to be done extensive for other nations on that continent, especially those that are close to the Germans. On the other hand, they emphasized that this will only happen by 2025so we can wait a little longer to be able to get a unit from this range (or the Meguro, quite similar to the Kawasaki Estrella, which was also available in those parts for some time).
