Z 1000 SX
« on: February 15, 2018, 11:52:49 pm »
So I found a Z 1000 sx 2014 for sale local for 5000 dollars with 18000 miles wondering if worth it and has anyone road one. I own a 1988 concours which I like because of size , but thinking of going to something quicker.                                                                           Lance

I had to look that one up as I could not find that model. I think you talking about a Ninja1000
Very nice and fast and light weight

Normally aspirated engines have perpetual turbo lag

My wingman has a green 14. Great bike. Only niggles are no center stand, 1 running headlight for running lights (my friend is full time high beam), shoulder mirrors (depends on your build), a little bit of vibration through the seat at around 7000 RPM.

Other than that it's 38-42mpg, nice torque, due to a close range gearing setup. Other than that pretty much a great middle of the road Sport Touring bike.

Oh, and putting a 55 tire on the rear of the 11-16s really helps with handling.

That bikes sells very well in EU, not well here.

$5000 for a 14 is a deal. (Stupid good deal, if it has the luggage.)
