2011 Kawasaki Ninja® 1000
An "adult" superbike finally!!By (I am an Owner) on Jun 16, 2011
I have been trying so hard to love my modded KLR650 for the last 2 years and finally embrace adulthood, but I have failed. Mid-life crisis is just 4 months away and the call of the wild is very strong in my little brain. I figured a used ZRX1200 would hold me, but the wife strongly suggested that ... a new motorcycle is a much better bet than a used one. I loved the looks of the Z1000 I saw at the new model 2011 bike show in Long beach in green and black, but the seat and my "undercarriage" did not get along. The next bike I sat on at the bike show was a ninja 1000 and it just felt so right!. It took only about an hour to realize that there was in fact, a new motorcycle in my very near future. I went to my local Kawasaki dealer and there was a solid black ninja 1000 with my name on it. I have only had a chance to put 200 miles on it, but I can already tell it is true love. The handling is just perfect, the riding position is very comfortable and the engine is super responsive. Only 800 more miles to go to fully break it in.I can't wait till Saturday morning!.

Just bought the ninja, looks great, real head turner, very smooth roll on throttle, excellent power that climbs steady. Very powerful but still in break in period so can't bust it out yet. Good seat and comfortable riding position. Very little vibration. Out the door for 10.3k. Excellent handling. ... Very happy. bUY IT!
