I bought the bike just under a week ago, after spending about 6 weeks trying to find one, being let down by a dealer who was telling customers he could get one, when in fact they knew they couldn't. Ended up by chance going to Rossendale Kawasaki, Tim was fantastic and made the purchase a dream. I've done 300 miles on it within the past week and it is amazing. From starting it up watching both rev and speedo dials flick round and the Kawasaki logo appearing on the information screen to setting off, this bike is excellent. My old bike was a blackbird, the zzr is far, far better in terms of quality, performance and comfort. I'm in the 'running in' period, so no chance as yet to find the bikes true performance but as I pass 3100revs the bike suddenly unleashes some performance, similiar to a VTEC engine in a honda. Lighter than the honda and no fairing around the knee area is a bit strange but means no scuffs to paintwork. Strengths: Looks are fantastic, seat is excellent find this much better than the honda, quality of the bike is excellent, performance so far excellent, wind resistance excellent, engine noise above 3000revs has a nice deep throaty sound. Weaknesses: Lower arms and wrists ache after a few miles, bars seem lower than the Honda. Underseat storage, if you have a few single matches or a single cig to carry then its ideal otherwise don't bother.
