After having sat on both I can say the V1000 would be my choice as it's a more upright, larger cockpit and is going to offer better protection with it's windshield/fairing than the Z1000. I am also certain anyone on the back would be happier as the seats a lot nicer, heck it's better for the rider. The Z1000 has a "Sportier" cockpit but is smaller and I was leaning a fair amount.
I have the go with what BC6805 said, having settled for something when I should have spent a few more buck to get what I really wanted was a poor decision in the long run I ended up sell the bike and taking a big hit in about 2 years only to spend even more getting the bike I'd really wanted at first.
But $5000.00 is a chunk of change. Just remember you are comparing apples to oranges in used to new. No warranty and how was the bike taken care of before you got it? In the long run it might not matter but it's worth a thought. That if I are NOT dead set on either one I think I'd go with the z1000 and upgrade it a bit.
Or was that look THEN leap?
