I'll be back!

After years being on Kawasaki (including selling them) I gave up waiting for a faired Z1000 3 years ago. The Yam FZ1 is an excellent bike (throtttle response easily cured on the early ones by the way) but I know what will replace it so long as I don't become a government statistic next year. Two points Kawasaki should have considered 1. No centrestand and 2. Why don't any manufacturers consider fitting small pockets in the dead areas inside the fairing? We all have mobiles, we can't keep credit cards near magnetic tank bags, it would be useful to have a space for a disc lock. It can't be beyond the wit of those designing  a sports-tourer fairing to think about this.

yum yum

At last a bike that i might change my mk1 hayabusa for...ok nowhere near on power etc but looks comfy and has all the right features....downside is that the newer hayabusa exists and i might miss the power......but a really good job from kawasaki... a proper sports tourer rather than a sporty tourer like the CBF ,GSX , Sprint etc

Another fantastic motorcycle from Kawasaki, great looks and an improvement on the fuel range from the excellent Z1000 too. Well done all at Kawasaki.
