Here is an interesting video on a review of the zx-14r on You-tube. He compares the comfort to his previous bike a BMW 1600 touring that competes with the Honda goldwing. He is very critical of the BMW's seat comfort and riding position. He says the zx-14 is more comfortable. One other interesting comment he makes is that it would be great if the zx-14's digital display was in color. I agree, this would be a big improvement and put it above other sport bikes. It would be another incentive to buy. You can't keep selling the same bike year after year with no improvements. A color display would really be neat.
