That is my favorite bike based on looks...especially in black. I actually like the exhaust on the older models with the 4 round pipes stacked 2 per side.

Always liked the looks of the z1000, but I agree the stock pipes are a bit outrageous.

I agree with you guys on the looks of the pipes, they are just plain ugly. Hopefully come next spring I'll be able to replace them, not sure really with what yet.

Love the new Z1000. It's by far my favorite newer bike on the market. I have read that the suspension is still a bit lacking though.

Thats a beautiful bike till you look by the rear wheel, the exhaust almost looks like an after thought.
