Kawasaki did have the European version, the ER6n. That's a good looking bike too imoHonestly, I think that looks fantastic. One wonders considering how inexpensive such an option would be for Kawasaki, why they did not do this? Suzuki did it with the SV.
And yes, I know about the Versys - which is a cool little bike, but still has a vestigial fairing and seems more of a tourer to me.
