I just part ex'd an 06 Triumph ST1050 for a ZX9R 2001, and got lots of cash back.. My triumph was very unreliable and the dealer was cr*p. I looked for a new bike, something fast, light, good 2 up and comfy but most of all reliable - nothing out there.
I'd had a couple of Kawasaki's in the past so I knew they were good bikes. But.... WOW I was totally blown away by the ZX9R. The review's are a little harsh, It is still a very quick bike and handles really well on british roads, even 2 up and around the city.
It's the perfect blend daily commuter with stacks of weekend fun.
It's a shame they don't make bikes like this anymore. I will be sticking with this one!
