Weak suspension but okay engine (light on power but still fun). Personally, I'd go for a speed triple from the same time for the same amount. The Honda's technology was already dated in 2007.

That's a fair price for that bike.

That's good price for that bike.
The engine has plenty of power, and the suspension is easily upgraded if you find it to be limiting.

Didn't realize they finally maintained their value so well.

Nice bike. After being a Kawi guy for ever I bought a 95 CB1000 while in Cali. Honda makes really solid bikes. 4 grand for that bike is a good price.

Ok folks.. A wild Z1000 appeared and now I'm having second thoughts about the Honda lol..

The Suzuki is in excellent condition (aesthetically) outside of it having 13,000 miles.. and I might be able to get it for 3,500..

Any thoughts on the Honda 919 vs the Suzuki z1000.. Although I like the styling on the z1000 better, I'm also interested in reliability..

Thanks in advance for your help in making an informed buying decision!

I loved my 919, and still actually miss it.

That engine is freaking bulletproof, has good torque (power wheelies all day in 1st, drop a tooth up front and it turns into a hooligan bike), good power pretty comfortable. Yeah it looks dated, add a Buell M2 flyscreen, bar end mirrors, remove the grab rail and some Renthal Ultra Low bars and that thing looks sleek. All that can be had for under $300, and it looks like a new bike.

And yeah that's a good price for that bike. I put 11k miles on a 2002 919 (that already had 11k on it)in 1 year and never had one freaking problem.


Man, I wish I never woulda sold her.....
