I got a 2005 z750 in 2009 with 2000 miles on the clock for 3 grand, and I must say what a bargain. It was my second bigger bike. When I first got it I didn't like it. I thought it was a nothing bike. Not a cruiser, not a sports bike, not a big trailie, just nothing. But the longer I had it I realised, its not a nothing bike, its an everything bike! Pretty good at everything!
The Bike: Suspension and brakes are pretty cheap to be honest, but they work. The engine is stonking. A bit bland, but with a can sounds a bit more gruff. I had the z750 upto 150mph! I've not even had my z1000 that fast! (I'm probably abit more chicken now). Over all it is a great bike that you can do anything on. its the best in its class and in real life probably faster than newer models cause of no cat. The handling is good enough for british roads and I once kept up with a 1198 and gsxr racing each other at speeds of upto 130mph round loch lomand. But I use to go to work on it too. If I had another I'd go for the S model with more wind protection. On the other hand the 1000 is the same to tax and insure and has better suspension, brakes, has a little wind protection and more low down grunt. But if you get a good deal on a 750, what a great bike for doing everything on.
