Hi everyone,

Just looking into moving on to something middleweight and Kawasaki has been good to me so far. Brand loyalty and all that.

Also, you can't really go wrong with a $6,999 price tag for a 649cc naked motorcycle.

Welcome to the forum!

What bike are you coming from and what other bikes have you owned in the past?

Are you looking at any bike currently aside from the Z650... lots to choose from in and around this segment.

Welcome to the forums, do you plan on adding the Z650 to the stable, or just getting rid of one and getting this ?

While we wait for a response often I find people in this segment just own one bike, the bike being talked about. It's the bike that does it all. As you go higher up thea CC's then the odds of a second bike increases.

That is true, I have seen a lot of people with liter superbikes that own a smaller 200cc, 250cc, even a 300. But when you have a medium bike, it's an all arounder to keep as one.

It also has to do with demographics, usually those guys on the liters are a bit older, more experienced, higher income, etc. So they have more room to play around with other toys. And odds are they aren't married so no wife to yell at you for having multiple toys while you still haven't bought her that C-Class sedan ;)

Happy wife, happy life - right?! Until you buy her that C-class and she turns around and still tells you no ;) Some of them are quite evil like that... bad experiences haha!

I bought the Z650 first, kept it, then bought a 2017 Aprilia RSV4RR about a month later. I still love the Z and will continue to ride it along with the Aprilia

Why the 2017 Aprilia RSV4RR if you don't mind me asking?
After riding several 1000cc bikes (R1, ZX10R, CBR1000) The Aprilia was hands down the most impressive one that I rode. It had the most power, was the most comfortable, etc. After doing tons of research as well, to me, there was no other choice.
