Picked up my new Z650 yesterday, rode it home 66 miles. So far, I love it. It is smoother than my old Versys 650. I can get both feet on ground (29" inseam). The handlebars are perhaps a bit low for my tastes, coupled with the high foot position. Although it was comfortable on the way home with the breeze pushing me enough to relieve any wrist pressure. It is really light and maneuverable compared to the Versys, it seems MUCH smaller, which I think is odd. Seat was comfortable for those 66 miles. I adjusted rear shock preload to the lightest load, which is a pain to do with the stock tool, I used a long socket extension and rubber hammer. Computer said I was getting 55 mpg, course I was keeping it under 4000 rpm which is about 55mph. Nice to read in the manual that valves don't need checking until 15,000 miles. I will definitely get Speedy's foot peg lowering kit when available, not sure if the h'bars can be raised because of the tight brake hose routing. OK, going for a ride.
