the transmission is like going from a tractor to a BMW.
I chuckled at this because of how agricultural BMW bike gearboxes are. Or can be.

I agree about the power delivery of the zed. It's just a lot of useable power without the twitchiness of the race replicas.
When you ride in the mountains a lot, you find yourself rowing the gears all the time with a sport bike, unless you have a torquey bike like the Zed.
