That thing is sooo quiet with that huge EU5 exhaust  :084:

I can't even imagine the thing unrestricted (flash) and full system  :007:

Anyone thinking about buying one?
I'm getting used to the styling but I still can't imagine being able to put that much performance potential to good use.

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

Due to it being a without fairings, its pretty much a hooligan bike. I mean, for those of you that have run the Z900 WFO will realize 150+ mph on a naked is kinda crazy. Only time I've taken mine over 140mph is when wind conditions are ideal. And if it wasn't for my double-bubble screen I wouldn't be doing it  :005:

However, it would be fun casually rolling into throttle in 3rd gear an pulling a power wheelie.

I confirm its kind of crazy 140+ with the stock windscreen.

I will probably test ride one this summer. The only good thing right now is Im not a fan of the color in North America so I wont be buying one until theres a black version. My wallet is safe for now.

It would be funny to just show off on the highway doing some wheelies haha

 I intend to take a test ride to satisfy my curiosity. No way would I buy one.

Here in Denmark we have a lot of taxes on bikes and cars. We might be the most expensive country in the world to buy cars and bikes in.

A Z H2 is $39.170 here................... so no!

My Z900 2020 costs $17.400 :)

I can explain why if you are curious!

Ill try to be a little bit more HUMAN about that event if i do that on it.... you know, like have a reaction to a powerwheelie at 200kmph haha  :172:
If I may. I'd like you hear your comparison of the z900 to the zx10R and the z900 to the Z H2.
(There is a chart somewhere that shows the z900 putting out more power than a zx10R below 8000 RPM).
Did you demo the z900 before you bought it?

Yeah i rode one last year - and here in the middle of january i drove both a 2019 with full akra on, and the new 2020 - as soon as i jumped off the 2019 - i took 5 steps to sit on the 2020 model. So for about an hour i rode those two back to back. Ive yet to ride the ZX10R for more than 30 minutes - so comparing those is not viable atm.
But yeah the charts are real, but then again the ZX10R being a RACE bike, needs to be kept in 8-10 rpms on a track and therefore delivering the power almost all the time. On the public roads? Thats no fun - because 85% maybe 90% of the time you go in START GO traffic, and its from 0 to 80 mph and thats it. Ive done legally :D ? you never exceed the 8000-8500 rpms - and never touch the powerband.

Thats why having ridden a ZX6R for 3-4 years straight and LOVING it, i knew what i had to try for my next bike. Z900 it is!

I'm still in love with my Z. I had my suspension fully modded for my weight and I added an end can just for the weight reduction and more foot room for my right foot. It is barely louder than stock.
Most of my riding is back roads so a more powerful bike is not needed but I'll tell ya, the Z H2 is slowly growing on me. I'd like to at least demo one but that will be hard in my area. (Just as well 🙂).
