Hi all,

I currently have a Ninja 650R as my works vehicle but looking to trade up later in the year, so I've been reading your threads for a while, and thought as a wanna be N1k owner, I might as well take the plunge and register. I'm finding lots of great info on here so thanks for making the effort and taking the time to share.

Welcome Kiwi
Thanx for listing your location.

I saw a video last week about a "running of the sheep" through some city in NZ.

If you upgrade from the 650, you may lose some mpg but you'll increase your smile factor. A smart man does his research and homework before the decision.
Oops. better clarify that I'm an ex-pat Scotsman who's been in NZ around 8 years now. (Had enough of the 'PC culture' in UK)

Started back using a bike as my main transport about 3 years ago as I'm a contractor so can travel around Auckland a lot and the 650 was (then) a good compromise for MPG, CC and narrowness for filtering through traffic.

Also whilst I'm certified 'T3' for anything pure sports, it's coming to that time to move up.
Welcome & yes the N1K is a great step up from your current ride.
G'day from Canberra Australia and Welcome.
Are you going to go for a test ride ?
Hi Jimmy,

Had a Z1000 for the day from my dealer whilst mine was in for service. Fitted like a glove, and HUGE improvement all round; so the seed was sown. Now just need to make it happen, hopefully later in the year. I heard a rumour that the 15 model may be coming to NZ after March. Not sure how true that is, but ties in with my plans.
