The exhaust reminds me of a tuba and Kawi s making their rear fenders bigger and bigger each year. I think the bike looks horrible. I cant wait to see what the nw Z750s will look like.

I like it. A new pipe would be nice, but other than that, it looks like a pretty bad ass street fighter right from the factory.

it's got a street fighter look. not bad, but not for me. I was checking out the 2007 busa. I've gotta feeling it's gonna mirror the 1000

Ugly. The old one was way nicer looking. The pipe is butt. And the little fairing where the front signals mount looks like the last sh*t I took.

I think he's trying to tell us his sh*t is worth over 200 bucks.

My feelings EXACTLY. the new design is HORRIBLE. the 06 design looked great, even though I'm not a fan of streetfighters.

I'll wait until I see it person to pass judgement. I've been seriously considering an 06 Z1000, I may just have to wait now.

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

There's a good thread idea!

I agree that the old Z1000 is better looking... Right around the corner from where I work there are a couple guys... one on a XB12 and the other on a Z1000, never talked to them... or even seen them, but their bikes are always parked together on the sidewalk... I think the XB's and the ol' Z1000's are bad-the-f*[email protected]$$....
