Evening all
« on: December 20, 2018, 08:24:34 PM »
Took delivery of my 2017 Z1000SX yesterday.  Moving on from an SV650 so feeling the difference.  Not my first experience of the bike; took one out for the morning while my SV was being serviced back in October and pretty much started looking from that point on.  Owing to the weather and other commitments just a quick ride out today, but even better than I remember.  Suddenly stopped thinking about what it cost and how superb the engine and gearing is. :830:

 :401: fen, you've made a good choice, I came from a sv1000, it feels weired being able to take a corner / turn at 25mph in 6th gear and just pull the throttle back and continue without a single hesitation, stutter or attempted stall from the motor. Try anything below 30mph and higher than 2nd gear on the sv and your on your a$$ or grabbing at the clutch and smashing down the gear box.

What colour did you get (orange is best) unwise ones disagree  :008:

Have you thought of any mods for it yet or are you staying completely stock?

Scotty you are right and wrong at the same time. Orange IS the best colour available, but you look wrong riding a Kawasaki that is anything other than Green! Some Ferraris look better in Yellow (imo) or White but anyone who has one in anything other than RED has got it very wrong and I'm sorry but I can't accept ANY debate on this. CASE CLOSED.
