I would love to have a GPZ 900; if only the parts were always available. Same goes for the RF 900R.

I had a well used '86 ZX1000R for most of the 90's because with 3 daughters that's all I could afford. My buddy had and still has a GPZ900 + a beater parts bike to keep it running. They're fun as a pillowcase full of puppies to ride but absolute barges compared to a modern litre bike.

When I had my GPZ750 in '83 the Interceptor was the one to beat, then Suzuki came out with the GSXR and put them both in the dust, Kawasaki brought out the Ninja, Yamaha coughed up the FZR and the 80's Sportbike race was on LOL..

My first bike loved it, 1986 VFR700.

I've always like Aprilias. Too bad the company doesn't seem to be able to pull their dealer support system out of their collective @ss. If you can call it a dealer support system.
As an owner... it is unquestionably a nightmare.

This bike would be a rocket to the grave for me.
