For the purposes of defining the stereotype of the Kawasaki rider: tall skinny goofy white boy, exclusively subsists on Monster Energy and fast food, loves gangster rap or electronic music, vapes. Occasionally will do shrooms. Very close to getting a Gixxer but couldn't stand the obnoxiously loud exhaust and the squids that ride them (though he admires them from afar).

I'd say I mostly fit it; I'm 6'1, and love me some MANGO LOCO MONSTER and Juul. How about ya'll?

Of the criteria mentioned above the only one that describes me is white, although I do like the occasional Big Mac. I’m in my early 50s, I like rock and country, don’t smoke or vape, don’t do drugs, but do like coffee. I’ve been known to throw back a few bourbons, often in the form of a Manhattan. Incidentally, the Z650 isn’t really a sportbike; that’s why I bought it.

Yeah, after posting this I realized that ZX6R and ZX10R owners are most likely to embody those traits. Z650 strikes me as young guys like me who started riding recently and was convinced to get a Zed because of good YouTube and internet reviews and its appealing price, or sensible old guys that don't care about going 150mph (mostly just bragging to people they go that fast once in a while).

Don't really fit the stereotype. Short, old guy(70's). I like bands like AC/DC and the Eagles. Don't wheelie. Owns Harleys. And I wear a friggin' safety orange fullface helmet(even when I ride the Harley.)

Maybe the stereotype you talk about is something regional, because here in Brazil it doesn’t exist at all... Kawasaki riders here are all kinds of people, skinny, fat, white, black, young, mature, old, men, women...
you can define a stereotype here for Harley riders (old, fat, rich guys) but not for kawasakis...

Me too, im older (68) Ive had a fair range of bikes over the years, im a JD man when I do drink, dont smoke and im average build and weigh,
I like my 2020 650Z, in the Philippines only a few roads are 100mph capable but the Z looks cool, was less expensive than most others, handles well and is fast enough for me.
Loud pipes save lives, they sound better than the music these days lol.

6ft 220. Yeah, white boy.
No energy drinks but I do eat a lot of fast food.
Only "gangsta rap" was in high school (90's). NO electronic music.
Smoked from 1995 to 2016. Never vaped.
Occasionally did shrooms. Not for at least 16 years though.
Suzy fanboies = bwahahaha. Certain people from all brands have dumb exhausts too. Squids are squids.

For my "purposes of defining the stereotype of the Kawasaki rider":
Knows what brand will give the best bang for your buck

I don't fit at all. My other bike is a Triumph Thunderbird Storm cruiser. I'm 60 years of age. I bought a 2020 Z650 because I wanted a lighter bike for shorter trips, but now find it is great for long day trips and overnighters when I don't have a pillion; the Storm is better suited for 2-up

5'4" white girl, powered by plants (I'm vegan lol), I love monster (The green one) but don't drink them anymore. Does age matter? I'm almost 32. I can get down on some gangster rap and EDM, but like a wide variety of music (From classical, hindu, to rap and oldies. Hate the newer country music), I've wanted to try shrooms, I too admire the Gixxer from afar!

I'd say I do not fit the stereotype at all 🤣, but love my bike!
