MC Commute – 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 1000
Motorcyclist staffer Zack Courts is always arriving to office after his commute with a bunch of opinions about the bike he’s riding. Too much this, not enough that, and occasionally has some decent insights. We thought some of it might help consumers or entertain enthusiasts, so we strapped a camera and microphone to the side of his helmet and told him to turn it on when he leaves his house. A lot of him talking in his helmet is complaining about drivers, yelling at red lights, and wondering why billboards aren’t more expensive. But sometimes he actually talks about the bike, and those are the parts we keep. Got a bike you would like to see discussed? Let us know and we’ll send him home on that one next.

  1. This bike was one of my picks for a new bike but I test rode it. The bike is great and smooth as butter but I think I would get bored with the bike.

  2. Love my 2015 just wish it had cruise control since its so comfy its easy to ride all day. I average 42 mpg riding like i stole it.

  3. Really glad to see this. I own a ninja 650r and looking to upgrade. Curious on the insurance though.

  4. Would love a commute on a GSXR 600, thinking of picking one up, can’t find any good reviews about commuting on them.

  5. Great video as always! That’s very surprising the bike only gets 35 MPG in town. Is that common in the 1000cc catagory? I’m getting around 54 MPG on my FZ-09 in town
