Thank you, sir!
It's the British mag, BIKE, that's given it lukewarm reviews. They are doing a multipart series called Bike for Britian where 5 bikes (GSXR600, CBR600F, BMW R1200R, Tiger 800, and the Z1000SX) go through a series of trials to determine the best allround bike. The Kwak is doing poorly in last place. Other mags have found it quite a good ride.
I subscribe to too many magazines to keep them straight!
I've seen the write up in the British magazine as well. Surprising result compared to most other magazines reports.
BTW, this is from the final paragraph of the Motorcycle Consumer News test of the bike:
If it sounds like we’re running out of superlatives, you’re right.
Except for its seat, the Ninja 1000 is a stellar motorcycle that ranks
high on our list of all-time favorites. If you are in the market for
an all-around street bike that could easily pull long-distance sporttouring
duty, give it a close look. You’ll be glad you did
