The Z1000 is a sweet looking bike. I keep kicking around the idea of a naked bike and I'd say the Z1000 is near the top of the list along with a Tuono. The RSV is just a slow copy of the RC51.

I ride naked and I really like naked bikes. I think the '08 Z1000 is the best looking naked bike currently in production. I'd do it if your even thinking about it.

I was pretty close to getting one after I sold my first bike. I really wanted one and did a lot of research. Got a 636 instead.

There was a guy who slapped a 10R motor in his, that thing is SICK!

Check this dude out, he's got some MAD stunt skills
