How does the matte paint hold up?
on: July 31, 2021, 04:27:47 AM
About to pick up a 2021 model with matte black paint, but I'm a little nervous as my last bike had matte paint and it kinda sucked - scratched easily, showed dirt super easily, had several spots that were shiny because of my knees rubbing on it.

Has anyone had those issues with the Z900?

Yes. Be careful the jacket youre wearing doesnt have buckles/studs/zips as it does mark very easily. And of course you cant just polish out any blemishes.
