Kawasaki M-8

Recommended Posts

Since hearing that the M-8 is coming soon. Well, anyone know what date (can be month, time of year) is it specifically debuting? The M-8 is nice since it features a nostalgia look on the outside and modern look on the inside... Any response will be appreciated.

 

It will not be in revenue until end of next year or 2010....they will make test runs next year!

I am going to call them "mate" cars instead of "M-8" to save time when i'm talking.

 

Why is there no (9)? Because LIRR prolly M-8 it. ;)

Those M-8 will look good.

 

The M8's actually look hideous. However, they have so many features and comfortable seats compensate for its appearance.

 

Here are a few pics from the M8 mock up back in June:

The design from the exterior is wonderful, and the designer has done a wonderful job with updating the old. The interiors look amazing and very welcoming.
