    Default Help needed Kawasaki Z650 or Triumph Street Twin

    Hey Guys I’m from Mumbai and need your suggestions and advise to decide between the Z650 and Triumph Street Twin.

    My usage is 80% riding in the city and 20 % touring.

    The criteria based on which I have short listed these bikes are
    1. Low seat height (my height is 5.4 only)
    2. Less weight.

    Have test ridden both the bikes and personally like the ride & feel of the Stree twin more.

    Which is the better option between the 2 or shoul I look at something else.

    Please help. Thank you.

    According to me the z650 makes a very good city bike. Got a good amount of torque, which is very helpful during city commutes. Talking about the
    hight the bike is not very tall which can land up scratching your underbelly on some high speed breakers. The bike is damm comfortable and does not heat up much in city conditions. Overall its a good package for a daily rider.
