Potential buyer

Hey guys!

I'm planning to buy this Z650 in a few months. Here to see what owners think about this bike and how good it's in terms of maintenance.

Looking forward to talking to you guys!

This is my second bike I have owned in my life time. First one was a 2005 Vulcan 800 (Loved it) but had to sell it when I went through a divorce. I just purchased the Z650 in late August. Prior to that I had researched and test driven several bikes. I had narrowed it down to the Yamaha FZ-07 and z650. To be honest with you, either bike is solid. You can't really go wrong with Kawasaki, Yamaha, Honda or Suzuki. To me it came down to a couple of different things. 1) Comfort- the Kawasaki to me is ergonomically just feels better. More upright position, and I felt more in control. 2) Extremely nimble, smooth ride, great torque. 3) Price was very reasonable (to me the best bang for the buck). I only have 1000 miles on the bike, no issues, no maintenance (except oil change). Bike is solid (no shakes, rattles). You can't go wrong with this Bike!

Kawasaki builds pretty solid bikes and my old Ninja chugged on fine for a good five years before I got tired of it. Didn't do much aside form oil changes, keeping things clean, replacing a foot peg i accidentally snapped off, etc.
