2018 1000Z, Below MSRP OTD

$10,981, taxes, title and everything. I want this bike badly, but having a hard time justifying it with two already in the garage. I sure miss having a GSXS! I sold my 2016 and regretted it with hours!

Z has a few functional upgrades as well. Little more horse power, back-torque limiting clutch. Dunno if it's worth the extra cost. Suzuki also claims "refined" fuel mapping.

Not k's. There are no leftover nakeds to be found within 200 miles of me except one with no ABS. Sorry, deal-breaker. There are a few 2016 F's around for between $9200-$9600 OTD. I rather spend another $1500 for a 2018 Z.

Do only 17s and up have slipper clutches? Can anyone confirm that the others don't? I could have sworn I read some reviews indicating that 16s at least had a slipper clutch.

The 16s have what they call something like a Back Torque Limiting clutch. There's speculation it's the same thing as a slipper by a different name. I guess you could compare parts fiche drawings to see if there's any difference.
