    One of the guys that was with me had an older model Z. Can t remember what year but he was telling us that it was night and day. Much more torque than the older models and better response overall. I'll see if I can dig up his email from somewhere and have him post his own opinion here.

    I'm 6'3" tall, weigh 215 lbs and have a 36" inseam. After years of curling up on Japanese race replicas, including the past 4-5 at track days, I've had enough.

    I’ve all but decided on the Speed Triple. The latest Z1000 is probably my last bike to compare. Can anyone out there close to my dimensions comment on the riding position of the Z?

    i would add some air filters to the itb's and put some old school looking seat on it and ride it as is. :D
