Look for a comparison test starring Kawasaki’s new Z900 on MO soon. I only got to ride the bike for a short while, but I’m already pretty certain the little green men have created a winner with this one. The green steel trellis frame and shiny cool paint grace it with Italy meets Sugomi good looks, the handlebar vibes that cause so many complaints in these kinds of bikes seem almost non-existent in the Z’s grips… it’s comfortable, its suspension seems in the ballpark… and it’s only $8,799.
