2014 Kawasaki Z1000
The Kawasaki Z1000 has been given a predatory look with an aggressive ‘Sugomi’ style, a 1043cc inline four, four stroke engine that is liquid cooled and a six speed transmission. It has been given One-piece monobloc radial-mount front brake calipers, Supersport-style 6-spoke lightweight aluminum wheels and shorter final-drive gearing. The Kawasaki Z1000 has been equipped with an Analog plus Digital instrument cluster, a new compact subframe design with more of a ‘streetfighter’ riding position to help you move with control.
