Damn, the only thing I hate about the new Z is that gauge cluster! :mad:
Me too - kinda cheesy! Makes me think I am riding a DR-Z 400.

I have been going back and forth between the Z1000 and NINJA 1000.

There's no denying that the NINJA 1000 is a better buy for the money.
It's 1 gallon larger gas tank, and better-looking set of gauges appealed to me.
On the other hand, the Z1000's motocross-style bar and aggressive looks are sweet.

However, I may have come across a possible 'deciding factor.'
The NINJA 1000 (on average) will cost me an additional $600-700.00 annually to insure.
...And that's with the bike paid off and no collision coverage and no uninsured motorist coverage!

Ideally, I want a Z1000 with the NINJA 1000's tank and gauges.
I realize the placement of the ignition key is different between the 2 bikes.
