14RS3, I get your sentimentI think you are trying to stay with a lighter, fun bike, but I owned a 2007 Bandit 1250S back in 2007.
When the magazine test say the motor felt like an electric motor they weren’t lying.
It was just instant torque right off the bat!
Comfortable seating position and sort of sporty if you aren’t trying to drag a knee or anything at that level.
But being a short man I soon longed for a lighter, sportier bike again.
I do miss that motor though.

The thing is that for us short men is very hard to handle a big bike in the 1000cc ~ 1400cc range. To me is a real workout to get my GSXS1000 out of the garage.
That's why I don't get rid of my Grom 125cc that feels like a bicycle. Many times I just need to go quickly to get something to the nearest super market.
I think the Z650cc will fit me right for street ridding (commuting to work). Light about 410 lbs (less than my CB500F), nimble, quick, low seat 31.1", powerful, easy to walk it, great 58 MPG, great 0-60, about 46 MPH in 1st gear, 68 HP, etc.
