Yeah, probably not. And I like the look of the 2007 model better. But I like the tech of the new model. Can't wait 'til they test it.

Harley will top this bike in no time. They'll rehire the other engineer (Edgar) and after some glue sniffing start working with the revolutionary swiveling front fender.

Go do some research and get back to us on that one.

I hear ya. What "Triumph influence???"

As a former owner of a '06 Z1000, and one that hated it's suspension, brakes and overall handling, I'm exited to see that Kawasaki got closer to building a true naked sport bike! Although my wish would have been for a TRUE naked ZX10, the 2010 Zed is much closer to the "real thing" than the lousy handling 2003 through 2007's.

If I can't get a CB1000R, I may be riding a Zed again, sometime in the future!

Can't wait see how it compares to the Duc Streetfighter and Monster!

I rode a mildly-massaged-suspendered '06 that belonged to a friend of mine's Wife - thing was a F'n FREIGHTRAIN. A Wheelie Machine that would probably destroy any hope of my continuing to hold a License in ANY State, were I to own one.............

The 06 Z1000 (or any of the other years,) were not terrible, but coming from a GSXR to a Z1000, it was either going to kill me or relegate me perpetually to last. My riding groups are all true sport bikes and I thought (being one of the faster riders) I'd be able to keep up on a lesser bike. NOT!!! I sold it and bought a CBR!

Oh, I didn't say I'd want to ride it daily, or even attempt to keep up with the "fast" group at a Moto-Rally - just that I could envision looking at life through a set of Bars were I to purchase one of 'em............
