I had a hard time choosing between the Z1000 and my FZ1. In my opinion, they are both great motorcycles. I actually like the Ninja 1000 best, but they are still fairly new and priced accordingly. I personally like the appearance of the FZ1, over the Z1000. So I found a used FZ1 for half the price of what a new bike would have cost.

The FZ1 engine is more of a top end screamer, and the Z1000 has a flatter power curve. As far as mechanical features, suspension, brakes, reliability, etc., I believe the two are identical. I have had zero problems with the FZ1. So my decision was driven by appearance and price.

But the Z1000 is a great motorcycle. If you like the bike and the price is fair, you won't be disappointed.
