I own an old Kawasaki ZR7 as well as my Inazuma. Riding the ZR7 is very enjoyable; it obviously has a lot more power, torque and accelaration, which is great, but at the same time it is heavy and can be like wrestling an elephant on city roads. There is no comparison in terms of comfort on a bumpy road, inazuma wins hands down every time. Brakes are better as well. In my opinion the inazuma is a perfect commuting bike.
