If you ride 2up, you will not like the "new" ZZR600. I was very much considering this bike..........until my girl and I sat on it. No freaking way! It is a shame Kawasaki did this to their only "comfortable" sporty sportbike. I like absolutely nothing about the riding postion and my girl would have given up on riding had I bought it. Just not my style at all. Anyway, sorry for the soapbox rant. Just ashamed the manufacturers don't understand that some riders actually want something powerful that is also comfortable to ride. Guess it worked out in the better for me anyways...........since I'm now on a zrx1200r :wink: All the power I could ever dream about and actually comfortable for solo and/or 2up.
