Having owned this bike for just over a month from new, i dont feel totally qualified to offer a truly valid opinion BUT! having done a few hundred miles on it i think i've got a rough measure of the bike. Before i opted for the zed i weighed up what i wanted, of which 4 bikes stood out, each had their plus points but only the zed offered all the things i was looking for. Major plus points were the styling, a good torquey engine, forgiving in nature but that raw type atitude you would expect from a naked sports bike. If i had to pick minus points they would have to be the rear swing arm that looks budgety and i dont know if that has to do with the rear feeling when cornering or that maybe i just need to re-adjust the rear shock to suit me. The bike does need a rear hugger and tail tidy neither of which i have yet. I did get the rear seat cover, belly pan and windscreen all of which are great additions. I picked the bike up £700.00 less than list with 0% finance so i added those items in the deal so all in all a great bargain, just cant wait to hit that 6,000 rev mark and get a real feel for what the bike rides like. I'm more than impressed with the none ABS brakes, ride position (although the seat is still a little hard) and responsiveness from the engine, a great bonus having the 750 when comparing with others in its class which are 600 units. One thing that sticks in my mind which has stuck with me from when i first saw the bike to now owning one..... the word Streetfighter !!! I think people got the name of the Z750 exactly right by saying that about this bike. Its cool, quick, forgiving and fun. Try one, you'll then buy one !!!!!
