Kawasaki’s Z750 just edges it in our naked four-cylinder middleweights road test.
We score it 86% - beating Yamaha’s FZ6 with 85%, Honda’s CBF600 with 78% and leaving Suzuki’s Bandit 600 trailing in with 74%
The Kawasaki scores high for its aggressive character and style, its fully adjustable rear suspension and the performance edge its extra cubes offer.
