I went with a friend in 2018 while he traded in his KTM for a Z900. We were at the dealership for a little while and I hadn’t owned a bike in 4 or 5 years. Well while he was doing his transaction I got to looking around and saw a 2017 Matte White with Neon Green subframe and just loved how it looked. I inquired about the price and monthly payments and needless to say I left that day with that same bike. I’ve ridden and owned many bikes but there is just something awesome about this Z that makes it my favorite of all time so far. Living in upstate New York doesn’t warrant much of a season but I’ve done over 10,000 miles with it in the last 2 seasons which is more than all my other motorcycles combined! Only upgrades so far is that I traded in the factory rubbers for Michelin Road 5s and I couldn’t be happier. They held up really good at the Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee and many more routes down there. This year I may look into getting an exhaust and some taller handle bars. Other than that I just love this machine!
