Fantastic for a first road bike, go and buy one
Since owning the Z nothing has gone wrong, but you wouldn't expext it to with a new bike.
The handling with the Z is still surprising to me. The harder I stuff it into corners, the quicker it wants to come out.
I have fitted an ER-MAX screen, which helps with the wind on long journeys, and the belly pan makes the bike look much better.
Overall I'm very impressed with the Z, but I can't wait for my insurance to come down so I can buy a ZX12R.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
