Q. Which should I buy Z900 or Suzuki GSX750 I am confused?
  • Both Kawasaki Z900 and Suzuki GSX S750 are good and powerful bikes. However, we'd recommend opting for the Z900 for its more powerful engine and subtle performance. Z900 packs an all-new 948cc, in-line four engine that churns out smashing 125PS and 98.9Nm of peak torque. The new gear ratios are said to offer better mid-range and top-end performance. The feature list includes 41mm upside-down forks, horizontally mounted rear mono-shock, dual 300 mm front disc brakes, dual-channel ABS, etc. For a better understanding of performance and handling, take a test ride of the bike. Follow the link for New Bike Showrooms.
  • GSX 759 has all the technology . But Z900 is a raw engine. Both the different character bikes. I suggest go for GSX750
  • Z900 is so aggressive and good looking. My thoughts about the gsx750 is it is mostly used for bike stunts with some modifications rather than riding

Q. I am going to buy Z900, it's my first superbike. Can I handle it as I am a new rider as I only ride 150cc to 220cc bikes for almost 500 km. If it is not safe for me then will you help me to choose a bike that is suitable for me between 7lakh to 10 lakh
  • Better to upgrade between 400-700cc segment. My very first motorcycle was Bajaj pulsar 180 it was the first bike in my state I still remember that feeling of my first motorcycle. Then I got re 350 that I sold out in 3 months was not satisfied with it. Then I waited 6 years for a motorcycle I wanted. It was ktm Rc 390 that I booked in 2014 and it was also the first in state, after that upgraded to Kawasaki er6n (first in my state) and now upgraded with Kawasaki Z900 (first in my state). We need to upgrade slowly if we want to master something.
  • Too powerful for you, go to a midsize first, devellop a good feel for it and than go bigger, these big bikes can be lethal!
  • Too much boasting first in state
