Pretty standard.  I think that you will find Kawasaki discs come in at slightly more. 

But they do last pretty well.  However it's a factor to consider if you buy a cheap high mileage bike, that a pair of OEM discs will set you back the best part of £500.

It's an impressive price lol. Was going to move to sintered pads but think will stick with stock lol.

OEM pads are similarly expensive.  If you replace your pads every 10000 miles, and you use a good quality alternative like Brembo, you can save £80 a time, so £400 in 5000 miles, which would almost buy you those new discs.  :)

2017 Z1000SX, in black.  Roughly 70000 miles and 8 years on SXs.
