In europe they also have the ER-65n, which is basically a naked Ninja 650. They don't offer it over here in the USA.

If you like that Zephyr why not get a ZRX? Looks about the same.

The Zephyr isn't a 1000cc bike. They are only 400cc's. Almost all motorcycles in Japan are limited to 400cc's, but still a hoot to ride. There are exceptions to the rule of course, but this was evident when I lived there.

It does not look like the Z1 & the headlight fairing is fugly.

They also have half faired ZRXs in Japan, updated Z750 & a Z750S with half fairing.

Sweet they have 400, 750 & 1100 versions of the Zephyr!

at first i thought "isn't that just a zr7?"

but no, the tank is more retro styled on the zephyrx and the zr7 has a mono shock. Nice bike.

I like the 750. It looks like an updated version of my 74 Z1. I bet it even stops.
