What are you opinions of the bike?
Comfort, power, torque, handling, suspension...

All I know is I love the look of it. (the NON-S version, anyways)

How do you feel it compares to similarly classes bikes, ie. SV650

Are there any Z750 forums I should know about? A quick google search got me nothing.

What mods have you done, plan to do, need to be done?

Any other info would be much appreciated.

Thanks a bunch!

Check out the Z750 and Z1000 forums at www.riderforums.com . All the Z-heads are over there. There's other forums for us but this is by far the best english language page for Z lovers.

also love SV650... haha

the non-S version looks exactly like z1000?

..i can't find an english forum for z750
I love my SV. Just testing the waters :)

Yeah, the non-S looks the same as the 1000 basically, with the exception of the exhaust.

Know what's funny? When I was at the Seattle bike show, I was asking the Kawi guys about the non-S and they had NO clue what I was talking about. Utter blank stares were all I got. Does in not exist in the US??

Only the faired version is being imported to North America as of last year. Pretty tough to find a Z750.

Do local dealers still carry the '05's though, that you know of?
I remember seeing a few at RMS a while back...

WOW.... I just finished calling around to the lower mainland dealers. No one has any. After the guy at Maple Ridge Motorsports (who was the biggest help of all) searched the Kawasaki info online, he told me there are THREE left in CANADA. 1 in Ontario and 2 in Quebec :(

Talk about hard to come by... I'm sad now

er.... had a hard time at that elementary school math stuff did we?

:evilgrin

Talkin' with the guys at BK they mentioned that they only brought 5 in over two seasons and ended up having to sell all of them at reduced priceing to move them out. They didn't order any of the 06's up as a result.

Naked bikes just have not been (re)discovered en mass yet. And it's silly too as they would be THE answer to many rider's needs instead of a Ricky Racer bike that is so totally beyond so many of their abilities to ride to even a fraction of the bike's limits and induced so much bodily pain in the process.
