Bought this the other day...………...

Similar weight, feels like it has more snap, ABS is nice to have, slipper clutch(clutch pull is so light it doesn't feel like it's even hooked up), better suspension & gearbox (1st is lower and 6th is higher). Of course, it is 15 years newer and should be better.

One of those in fully naked version with the brown/orange paint is still on my want list.

I prefer the look of the z900 over the z900rs, but I wouldn't say no to riding either if they were handed to me.

Delkevic header is already on and a re-flash is coming soon. I've been very vocal about how much I love the 919, it has been the "yardstick" that I compare every bike to. With that being said, the Kawasaki is very impressive. Dare I say the new "yardstick'?! The only thing that I have found better on the 919 is the 5 gallon tank compared to Z's tank of 4.5 gallons. However, it does get better fuel mileage and the range is within 10-15 miles of the 919.

Kawasaki did a fantastic job with this bike!
