Like the looks even better than the new 10! Pretty sweet bike. I had an 07 and was very smooth and comfortable. Thoughts?

I have to disagree with you. When the Z1000 came out it was a naked sportbike / streetfighter. Look what it has become. It's more of a touring bike now. What streetfighter has saddle bags?? Also the Z1000 should have just a small bit of fairings IMO. I thought about a Z1000 a couple years down the road, but the 2010 is looking like the only year I would pick up. I attached a picture so you can compair the two. The 2010 is even a little more touring style than I like, but its not as bad as the new one.

The 2011 Z1000 is the same bike as 2010. The picture that the OP put is a Ninja 1000.

I like that new bike and the Z1000 looks awesome. One thing is for sure, they look very comfy and the Z1000 feels nice for me as I turn 40 this November.

I honestly believe this is a GREAT product KHI is putting out. I sell them for a living and there are so many middle aged folks that come in that want a literbike but don't want the aggressive ergonomics. Then I show them a z1000 and they want a windscreen. This is the first bike out there that will fill that niche and i'm greatful for it!

I'd kinda like to have one and I'm only 23!!! But I appreciate trips since there's nowhere around here worth riding within 3 hours.

Looks like shit, but they are catering to a European market. What I wanna see is a return to the street fighter look. GS-1150E meets, Monster meets Speed Tripple.

This type of Sport Touring Standard is just to busy looking for my taste. I prefer the minimalistic look.

I rode one of the Ninja 1000 / Z1000SXes today. Great bike. It's going to be added to my stable ASAP. The adjustable windscreen, ergos, power, extra fuel capacity, etc. etc. It's going to be a big seller for Kawasaki. It's very very nice.
