Thanks for sharing. I’m fortunate enough to ride the Sisters several times a week since moving to the area eight months ago.

I just watched the video on the Suzuki as a competitor. I think you stated, or implied, that the Ninja 1000 was based upon Kawasakis liter sport bike. That is not the case. The Ninja 1000 was based upon the Z1 “Naked” bike. Neither one of them is based upon any part of the ZX10.

You are correct. I need to work on my messaging and delivery. I was trying to make the point that the Ninja 1000sx and new GSX are closer to the sport bike end of the spectrum vs other heavier larger sport touring motorcycles. At least when it comes to the geometry (Wheelbase, Wheel size, suspension travel, stance) and engine (inline 4 cylinder) the ninja feels and looks more like the flagship sport bike ZX10 than say for instance a bmw s1000xr compared to the bmw S1000rr. It's all splitting hairs in the end. I'll try to stick to trip videos in the future.
