The Ninja 1000 shares the same 1,043cc liquid-cooled, electronic fuel-injected, 16-valve four-stroke inline four engine and aluminum twin-tube backbone frame from the Z1000, but with ergonomics, storage, and other design elements more oriented to the sport touring market.
In short it is a faired version of the Z1000 streetfighter which competes with Honda's CB1000R. .
So explain to me how this 500 Trio is any different? Component sharing is the new mantra in automotive engineering today
And as far as comfort goes on the N1000.. its a sport tourer.. what do you expect? Honda have/had their CBF1000 and the Deauville(NT700V) for the same purpose?. Sport tourers are designed to be comfortable.

Why not buy the 600RR instead? If you dont like the 2013, get the 2012 while they last?
