A return to the wonderful world of Kawasaki's for me after 2 successive BMW-K1600GTs, but a long line of Kawasaki's went before them..... GPZ500, ZXR750, ZX9R & ZZR1400 all amongst them.

Excited for the Z900 being delivered in a weeks' time .....maybe I can't lug 100+ litres of luggage around with me anymore (a Z900 tankbag recomendation would be very welcome though) but I'll not be burdened by a hefty 360+ Kgs whenever I want to pop out for a 10 mile trip either....I think the Z9 is just what I've been looking for without even knowing it  :002:

Have never ridden one, sat on one or even seen one in the flesh....but I think I know what that engine is about and that's enough to draw me in, like a moth to a flame (someone please tell me I've made a good call, for some reason waiting for dealers to re-open their showroom doors just seemed like too long a wait ?)   :027:

Welcome and congrats! I think you will enjoy the bike as most of us have especially after you get her adjusted/modded to your liking.

Welcome
The z9 is a great little bike but / and pretty polar opposite of the K1600s

Welcome and congratulations! I was pretty well sold on the Z900 before even sitting on one also and I do not regret the decision one bit!

Welcome and congratulation to your new bike.
I have driven my R1200GS ADV since years and were looking for a lighter bike, too. I was infected after test-driving a Z900 last February.
Much fun in the season 2021.

The Z900 is a keeper for me forever!  It is fun doing the modifications and accessories!  The main ones I did were for comfort and bike protection!  Fender extenders,   I raised the handlebars with 30 mm risers, Crash bars, Tank pad, new seat, phone mount, seat cowl for looks,  a 16T front sprocket, and I cannot remember what all else,  but I really love this bike and will keep it forever!  I also have a concours 14 too,  and I will keep it forever!  Congratulations on a wonderful bike!!!
