After a ride, here's what we think of the 2016 Kawasaki Z800.
This bike is poised to compete primarily against the Yamaha FZ-09, Triumph Street Triple R, and MV Agusta’s Brutale 800, but does the Kawasaki Z800's 806cc liquid-cooled in-line four cylinder have gusto to compete in a triple fueled field?
By the time this is published, I will have had the Z800 for two days. So far, I can tell you it’s like that scene in the Matrix Reloaded where the Merovingian confesses his love for cursing in French—it’s like wiping your ass with silk. I love it.Okay, love is a bit strong out the gate, but I'm certainly pleased with the Z800 for the moment. Let's see if this relationship has the legs to become a legendary romance.
