Pros: Extremely reliable, good dealer support network, excellent handling,suprisingly quick off the line.
Cons: Bad seat, goofy tank seam, chain drive (prefer shaft or belt).
Nice styling, minus for obvious seam around the gas tank and too much plastic used in other areas. Great gas mileage, extremely reliable although a little quirky to start on some mornings when extremely hot or cold outside. Very smooth at 70mph, confidence inspiring handling and good stopping power. It is everything I expect from a Kawasaki= good value, nice styling, exceptional performance, outstanding reliability. It would be nice if some of the aftermarket companies came out with a different seat and more accessories for this nice little bike. Overall, I feel it was a good purchase for my wife as a starter bike, but I definately feel there is allot of room to grow with it. As an extremely experienced rider it wouldn't be bad for a daily driver if living in a large city or commute was 50 miles or less one way. Seat gets extremely uncomfortable after 100 miles, but for shorter commutes it's not so bad.
