I have had about 5 of this model this year (I trade), and am shocked at the price every time I ride one. Kawasaki really do their own legs with their 0% deals and end of season discounts, not good if you are buying new - but these are a used bargain as a result. The engine revels in revs, egging you on to go that bit further each time with it's confidence inspiring handling. If you are a nervous rider you should steer clear of these until your confidence is up, not because they are scary to get on with, far from it in fact, these really need to be revved to get the most from them - but thats my point. If you arent going to carry a little speed into a corner to put this bike at an angle it was designed for, or carry speed and go rigid, you won't enjoy this bike, its the same with the engine, it needs to be revved hard, so leave your mechanical sympathy at home when you take this out, or all you are left with is a firm ride (and a stunning bike of course). I am 6'1" and fit ok on this bike, it is one of the better ninjas for fit, unless you go back to the A1P, but then that model is left wanting in the 'top trumps' department against this model of course. These are one of the best 600 sports bikes available - elevated to the best sport 600 when the used value is considered. Buy one of these and you won't be sorry, they are a joy to own and earn nothing but respect on the road.
