That would be most welcomed as would some of the newer bikes being added. I don't see many bikes added the past 3 years.
My philosophy when it comes to bikes/power- when its generating 120-125 RWHP & 70+/- lb/ft of torque, what more could you ask for? Anything else is just excess, IMHO. My ZZR had 'excess' in abundance. I was too terrified to ever use it. I think I maybe whacked open that throttle a couple of times, shat myself and then said, 'that's enough of that!" My bike dynoed @ more than 145+ RWHP, pretty much stock, which was just too much for me. Yeah, I know some of ya'll are squinting at me, saying there's no such thing as too much HP but there was on the ZZR... again, for me.Thanks for all the input. I'm curious how I'll feel about the "oomph" difference. Spectre, I'd forgotten you had the N1K. Thanks for the info. Need to find one to ride. Excellent that your daughter is riding with you. Have some great memories of my daughter riding with me on the ZZR. She'll be providing a grandchild in March.
I'm built like a gorilla- 5'10", 230, short arms, short inseam. I modded my ZZR 12 ways come Sunday trying to make it fit me- risers, seats, grips, lowering pegs, bigger screen, whatever- and I never got comfortable on that bike. W/in 20m of riding, I was looking get off- I just hated it.I'm still curious how the Ninja is more comfortable than the ZZR? TO me the ZZ seems much more roomy with a much bigger and better seat. Perhaps comfort is a relative thing but I like the seat of the ZZR and the forward lean which negates some of the scruntch I feel from the Ninja.

Gotcha. It would be cool if they could take arm length into account.more of a stretch to the bars. I like that. Less cockpit cramping. My hands are too close to me on the Ninja. That diagram takes into account my 34" inseam but not my long arms. Plus I'll take a little more knee bend if my heels are more under by butt. Better alignment.
I'm 100% positive I'd like the ZZ better. It reminds me more of my old sprint.
