This bike is exactly what a street legal sportbike should be. It responds quickly to its rider's inputs with both handling and acceleration. Acceleration is very strong. It is one of the most comfortable motorcycles I've ever ridden, and I've ridden a lot. Fuel mileage is about on par with other 1000cc bikes, between 36 - 40 mpgs. If you like your bike to perform strong 2nd gear power-wheelies, this is the bike for you!

I've had my Z1000 for five years and now started riding on a FZ600. When I got more riding time in and wanted more power, I bought the Z1000.

I've had my Z1000 for five years and now started riding on a FZ600. When I got more riding time in and wanted more power, I bought the Z1000. It has all the power you need and moves around like a 600cc bike. The only problem with the bike is the driver's seat is hard and the rearview mirrors show your elbows no matter how you try to adjust them. But the bike pulls like a mad dragon over 4,000 rpms. and a gentle one below that mark. But overall I love this bike.

Bought this beauty as a holdover in 05 for 2100 below retail, and it's the best money I've ever spent. As others have mentioned, I've never owned a bike that got so much attention. I guess it's because it doesn't look like everyone else's V-twin clone. I really enjoy walking to it after a day at work and saying to myself.."that's a cool bike!" I'm not bothered much by the vibration issue, lucky I guess. But I do get some serious butt burn from that seat. Maybe time for my first upgrade..a Corbin seat. Oh yeah, I love the pipes too, remind me of my old Z-1, hence the license plate StillZ1.

Loving the all new design for the Z. Aggressive looks and a nice riding stance means one happy rider. The sound (with stock pipes) is mean and lets the rider know they are on a high rev'er.

The power comes on smooth and predictable with ample over-rev. This bike is a HUGE leap forward for Kaw's Z line. I'm getting ready to go Duc hunting on this sucker! Watch out Hypers.

The stock seat is uncomfortable but a Corbin took care of that and the rest is history. I've done some mods to it and still love it. I do some commuting back and forth to work in the summer, but mainly ride on my days off for fun.

I bought mine in Aug. 08 right toward the end of the season. It was a brand new 06 that never sold and didn't have a mile on it. I love the bike. It has a custom pearl white paint job so that it looks more like a 08 than a 06 and I like it a lot more than the stock blue. This bike rips! On my last time out this fall I lined it up next to my buddy's 750 and blew him away off the line. It also handles better than my old bike which was a 600. This bike is great for every type of riding. For longer rides it is about as comfortable as a sportbike can get. And for performance this thing is fast and it handles great. I love this bike and plan on riding it for quite a while.

The Kawasaki Z1000 is by far the best bike I have ever owned! Not only does it handle nicely, get great gas mileage, and ride fairly comfortably; the power is incredible. I have put almost 8000 miles on it just this summer alone without a single problem, which is great. Not to mention that insurance is very affordable! The other cool thing about this bike is that mods are practically limitless, and no one has one, let alone knows what it is, so it works as a conversation starter. If you want a 140HP engine (after some work) slung between two tires, this is the bike for you.
