I actually called Kawi and we confirmed my address and size over the phone. They confirmed VIN and said jackets will be shipping in August.

That jacket looks amazing. How can you find out if you qualify for one? I keep finding the ad for the promotion but no way to "apply?" for it. I bought mine in may so not sure if it was too long ago.

I just called in to get mine and the lady said that they would be getting the first shipment in early August and should be to our door by mid to late August!

I spoke to Kawasaki yesterday and was told that they just started sending jackets out. I should receive mine before the end of September, I'm in NYC.

Jackets are on back order. I received and email from Kawasaki saying it's been overwhelming and they had to push back the date.

Received ours yesterday!
It looks nice and it's cool that it matches the bike, but I think my current riding jacket from Joe Rocket is better made and the armor is thicker. I think Kawi valued it at $395 but i wouldn't buy it for that much. IMO. So thankfully it was free!
Not a bad toss on for a short ride or to go to a meet kind of thing.

The last picture is the inner liner which can become a neat and light little long sleeve to toss on. My gripe on that was the fact the liner is only attached by 3 buttons total instead of being zipped in or something. Inner liner also has green Z emblem on the back as well and the sleeves are cloth, not puffy like the chest part.

I bought my z650 a day before the cutoff of the promo (August 30). My dealer sent in the info to Kawasaki (proof of purchase date). I ended up calling Kawasaki (1-800-802-9381) and talked to the lady, who verified my VIN number, address and size I needed. I haven't received it yet, but will give you a review of it when I get it. Anyone who has purchased recently (on or before August 31, 2017) might check with Kawasaki to see if you had qualified for the Jacket (That is if your Dealership was a participant of this promo and if they sent in your information to Kawasaki). Worth checking.

Got mine last week. Impressed with the quality, especially for a promotional item. Wore it once and it was nice but extremely hot even without the liner. Will have to wait till late fall/early winter to use it due to being in Oklahoma. No biggy though. One less thing to buy this year.

I just got my jacket today, and it is definitely not the same as the one pictured further up the thread. Its pretty well make, and the reflective stitching on the back is straight up voodoo. Completely black stitching but is bright white when a picture with the flash is taken.

The jacket itself is Kawasaki branded, not Z branded. A bit more subtle from the back and sides, but has a big kawasaki text across the chest.

Wore it today with the vents open, and even in the 95+ f temps, it was just fine. A bit less airflow than my cheap scorpion mesh jacket, but way better made, and still not hot as long as I was moving. Quite comfortable even for a long ride.
