Closest I could compare it is to my 07 ZX10R in how it handles. It rides very much like a ZX10R with dirt bike bars, but has no twitchiness. It just does what it's told when told, no drama. The motor is very torquey but does not have the above 8k rush of the ZX10R. On the street it gave up no distance to the two R1's and 1000RR I was riding behind. It pulls cleanly to 135mph, at about 8.5K. (in Mexico on a closed course ).

I'm sure there's potential to be found with the full Akra and Bazzaz. I'm also going to go DOWN 2 teeth in the rear. It's geared very short for my tastes and riding style.

Nice Bike. Almost looks like the ZX10R. Any particular reason you chose this over the ZX10R? I am assuming comfort?

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey Godís laws, and it never will. Thatís why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God. Romans 8:5-8

Bingo. Also I was looking for a "vice grips" bike. I had a complete set of tools (4 bikes) and wanted something more rounded to narrow the fleet with. Garage looks empty with just one bike though. We'll see how long that lasts.

She had an SV650S. She tried to Chuck Norris a telephone pole during an off road excursion and lost her will to ride solo. She prefers to ride pillion now. She doesn't know it yet, but I'm planing to schedule a track day and rent a Ninja 250 for her. I think if she'll just get back in the groove she'll ride again. Beside...she's smoken in those white A* leathers!

Oh...since we sold her bike she decided she "needed" some Christian Louboutin shoes. The Ferrari comment was she needed a car to match the soles. She was dissappointed when I nixxed the idea but cheered up when I mentioned getting another Porsche.

I ride with a girl who has a SV, she really likes it, mot my pick of a bike but to each is own. I think that would be a great thing, get her back on a bike and a 250 would be prefect.

No kidding- I didn't even catch on at first that it was the z1000 despite that being in the title.

Just didn't see that coming and ASSumed it was a 10r.

Still a very nice bike. Good all arounder.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

I really like the looks of the ninja 1000, i was anxious to see what people thought about it. i have been thinking about adding one as a stable mate to my zx14.
