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