I was a little surprised that the mods did not post the article from Cycle World July 2011 where the Z1000 was chosen over the new (to US) Honda CB1000R and new Speed Triple.
Or where the 2010 Z1000 was the choice of all three riders in the Sport Rider comparison over the MV Augusta and the Ducati Streetfighter in December 2010.
It appears to me that once you've ridden a Z it would be hard to go back to any other type for basic transportation or just having fun in the canyons. It's a great bike that fits many uses, commuter, touring, track days, drag racing, canyon carving all very well and it won't break the bank either!
