Pretty similar bikes.  I wanted one of the ZZR1200's for a while.  Ended up with a Sprint, which probably saved my license.

I was at the DMV today, chatted with some riders awaiting tests in the parking lot. There was a truly lovely black '05 ZZR, with nice rear-sets and other tasty bits. Guy told me it had 16k and he got it for $5000. I told him to be careful.  Bigsmile

Always loved the look and idea of a ZZR1200, but if the ergos are similar to the Blackbird that I rode, and my VFR, then I don't think it's for me. Both bikes seem to have a very long reach to the bars. The angle of the back isn't fine, it's just a long horizontal distance between the bars and the seat. On a supersport, the bars are lower in relation to the seat, but closer to you, which I tend to find more comfortable. And Helibars is just wimping out.  Razz

Re-viving this thread.  I'm also considering the zzr1200 and have taken a few out, very solid and planted feeling bike yet somewhat nimble for its size.  Oh, and of course the power all over the place!  Smile  I want a bike that will not get blown around on the highway and can handle occasional two-up riding and fit me as I'm 6"2'.  I had a few bikes in mind in addition to the zzr, zx14, FZ1 and FJR.  The zx14 is too sport for what I'm looking for and the FZ1 is still a little cramped for me and wind protection even with a higher screen was mediocre at best. So, I'm down to the ZZR and the FJR  I should be test driving the FJR soon.  Btw; my riding is probably 60/40 sport/tour.  

     There are two 2003 zzr1200's for sale locally, one has 20K miles on it and has an aftermarket seat, exhaust and bar risers.  The owner said the only thing it may need at some point is a valve check/adjustment, bikes seems to be running fine.  The only issue with this bike is that it has a salvage title, current owner said the original owner replaced some of the fairing pieces.  The bike looks fine.  The other has 4k miles on it with no mods.  The bike has been sitting and not driven for two years, but does start up, everything is still original on the bike.  This bike is gonna need, new tires, complete tune-up, tank and fuel/carb system cleaned and I want risers and an aftermarket seat.  Not sure yet what all of this is gonna cost.  I would rather have a low mileage bike but I think the price with all the work is gonna put me around $5k while I might be able to get the other bike for around $3k.  Any thoughts??  I may just continue to look as well for other zzr's.  I also still want to see what the FJR is like, a little out of my price range, but am willing to take a higher mileage one if it's the bike I pick.  Thanks.

If the one with the salvage title checks out, buy it and ride the wheels off. You can total that bike tipping it over in the parking lot. Tank alone is about $900 from Kawi, and they usually don't quote a repaint for a scratch. Its all done as new parts.
