New to Kawasaki
on: July 31, 2021, 04:51:36 PM
Was kicking around getting an Aprilia Tuono 660 (I've had 2 Mille R's and an RSV4 RF), but between reliability issues, and lack of dealer support, I decided to get some good bang for the buck with a 2021 Z900.

Already did a full exhaust, sounds great:



It's a great bike overall, very happy with the purchase.

Good to have you on board. The Z900 is a great bike thatll reliably give you years of fun times. The Italians marques make great looking bikes and are getting better with reliability but, after owning my Z for nearly 4 years without a drama, I love not having to worry about whether the bike will start or what problem Ill have with it today 😂

Enjoy your new Z!

Don't know if you've been following the drama with the 660 engines. Quite a few of them have been having rod failures. So much so that there is a recall and a group that require complete engine replacement.

Such a shame because the baby Tuono and RS and really nice looking and surprisingly nice sounding bit of kit.

Regardless, there is no better engine sound on planet earth than their V4. Well, the Mazda 767B is the greatest sound but that's unobtanium  :020:

RE: Reliability, you can't touch jap bikes! I'll have 50,000 miles before years out and it's crazy how reliable its been...not for the lack of trying to kill it every time I take it out  :730: :178:

ps. Welcome
