A new bike/variant by Kawasaki? We will know by November 5th! 

A new video was released just two hours ago by Kawasaki TV hinting a big street bike. The video title is “call of the wild” and the date that the bike will break cover is November 5th, just two days before the Eicma motor show in Milan. 
Could it be a variant of the Z1000SX? This is the most probable speculation. However a faired or even half faired version of the Z800 should not be exempted.
