Well thought through and rounded design
Warning to do-it-yourself types: Do not over torque crankshaft oil drain plug. Case is aluminum and the bolt is steel.
This motorcycle has very good ergonomics. At 5'9" I feel very comfortable. Even though I have highway pegs, I hardly use them due to the bike's inherent ergonomics. It is very well thought through, and you'll discover this even more if you do maintenance yourself. I had a 1999 (yes, with the plastic oil gear), and the tweaks Kawasaki performed to make my 2006 are noticeable.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
