So searched around and it seem the z1000sx is the most likely candidate to get it. Also there are some rumors that s completely new Z model could come.
What do you guys think.
I'm big fan of the supercharger so can't wait.

I'm no fan of complicating a bike if there's no need for the power. The engine in the current Z9 suits me just fine.
I'd be happy with some nice LED headlights. 👍

I'd sign on the dotted line for a supercharged 750 triple. 👍

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

I'm guessing that it will be an undressed and slightly detuned H2 SX.

Yes, the z900 is an improvement on both the z800 and the z1000 so how else will Kawi be able to improve the z900 model? They can't very well bump it up to a 1000 because they already did that. They're stuck in the middle. Either they will have to add a Turbo or add LED headlights.
I hope it's LED headlights (that will also retro-fit the older models 😀). I'd rather see where I'm going than not see where I'm going fast.

I would love for them to make a beast of a Z finally! Even if I cant own it, Id love to drool over it.

Ive been hoping for this myself. Hopefully the new model next year will have full LEDs that will be compatible with the older models. With that said, I looked the other day to see how much the headlight unit on the Z400 is as thats got LEDs and I was wondering if it could be made to fit the Z9. That headlight is almost a grand!!! Imbased on that price, even if they do make a backward compatible headlight, itll be out of my price range!

Oh yeah, way pricey. The idea would be a used one to show up on eBay.
So, how about a compatible better looking instrument cluster? The cluster is my main sore point on this bike even though I hardly notice it when I'm riding. I pretty much just look at it to remind myself what gear I'm in. I don't know how I got along so many years without a gear indicator.

I suppose if they upgrade the z900 they add a quick shifter.
