You're probably right about reliability, dealer support, etc.

I know this topic is about the MZ, but there is something the rubs me really wrong about the Z1000. This bike looks like it was designed by a committee of people who decided, "let's design a funky bike", without having an eye for what looks good. And while being seriously constrained by accountants. Various elements of the bike look "strange" for absolutely no reason, like for example the headlight/fairing unit, the plastic on the sides, the pipes, and so on. It all looks forced, which is my main problem with this bike.

Not only that, but all the pieces put together don't work at all either. There is no unifying idea in this design, no vision. Maybe as a graphic designer myself I'm a little harsh, but this is just a really, really crappy, really cheap-looking design.

Don't even get me started about that new Kawasaki ER-6n - that has even more of that forced funkiness/weirdness that really doesn't work.

So I guess if I were in the market for a naked bike I wouldn't buy either the Z1000 or the MZ1000SF, but forced to choose between those two I would pick the MZ.
