Video: 2011 Kawasaki Z750R test - 'too heavy to excite'

Kawasaki is making bold claims about their new Z750R. They say they’re gunning for the magnificent Triumph Street Triple R, which is more or less the same price and power as the Z750R and one of the best sports nakeds you can buy, bar none. That’s some claim, then.   

So, can that little ‘R’ badge, a host of chassis tweaks, including radial brakes, new forks, shock, aluminium swingarm and a £500 premium really turn the unassuming Z750 into something really special?
