Actually Kawasaki did that. The new Ninja 300x is a good starting point. I think that they will sell a lot of them.

anyways, what's your definition of touring bike?

Adding bags, windscreen, frame slider, GPS, phone charger, intercom, emergency tool kit, touring seat, etc...aren't that hard to do.

You're right, any bike can be made into a touring bike, but by manufacturer definition, touring bikes have upright sitting positions and have clearance for off roading.

Yep Timpo I had a 300 x versys as I said it was a great bike but I am 65 now and the weight as centred to high for me and the bike to tall.
Your bike looks great but I note you dont have a touring screen that is one thing I want. I sit upright and want some protection. any source of touring screens you can locate me towards for a Z 300
I have had the full range, well up to 800 on the Kawasaki and they are great bikes been riding for over 40 years

That's not my bike, we don't have Z300 in USA/Canada
