The only real complaint against the Z1000 that I have is the seat is shite, which can be easily and cheaply fixed. The suspension was stiff, but nothing that couldn't be sorted (I tend to install aftermarket suspension on all my bikes so they are set up perfectly for me anyway). Other than that, the only thing she loses out to the GSXS is when she comes on song. The GSXS has a superbike top end, so when you really get going, the GSXS will leave the Z1000 in its wake. We're really splitting hairs here though.
I haven't had any seat time on the FJ-09, unfortunately. From guys I ride with that have they say she likes to wheelie more, but worry about the build quality longer term. All would put new suspension and get it tuned as well.
