No z 1000, I have the ninja.
I like the people here, and the z 1000. I came so close to buying the z when I bought my bike. If they had a green z, in stock, Im sure that would have been my choice.
My ninja is similar to a z, anyway. With so many similarities, especially back in 2012.
When I switched my rubber mounted pegs to the z's solid mounts, that was pretty significant in its transformation, and back then, one of the few differences.
By the time you factor in upgraded suspension, exhaust, reflash, upgraded brakes, lithum battery, etc, my ninja is pretty much in z configuration with a large fairing.
I think the z might be the better bike. It would have been, for sure, if i lived in a warmer climate. I think I have better wind protection, maybe.....maybe...
I do have access to a 2010 z, and have ridden it a lot. I think it handles better than my stock ninja did. That missing weight, up front, is a big deal.
