New here. I used to own a 03 z1000 in black for 3 years. I now ride a 03 Speed triple. I just moved down to Georgia. I was working at a Kawasaki dealer for almost six years (parts manager). I really like the new Z and would like to get one in the future. Glad to see the new Z back in the model line up!

What was the deciding factor over the two models? I know there is a thousand dollars between retail pricing and the triumph has an expensive destination charge. Did you ride them both?

Several reasons for the Z over the Triumph..... The closest T dealer is several hours away so getting service and parts would take a long time. Also like you mentioned the price difference is several thousand $'s and I think the Z has a cleaner look to it. Never got to ride the T but would have loved the chance to. Also you can pick up a new Z for 8 to 9 k if you look hard enough!
