I'm with you man, I think the gen-3 is the best looking of all the generations, though this bike is technically not a Z1000. I just hope people buy the Z-H2 so that in 4 years Kawasaki updates it with a better looking front end. Something a bit more "naked" than what we got. I'm a bit gutted to be honest, I was 99% sure this was my next bike as I was already leaning towards the regular H2, so long as the front wasn't hideous, I was all in. And I'm in the minority that thinks the H2 front end looks brilliant, it just doesnt translate to the lines of what a Z should be.
...and in a crazy twist, the Ducati Streetfighter that was show today as well has the front that I was HOPING that the Z-H2 would have. The Duc actually looks spot on!
