2014 Kawasaki Z1000 Features
Sugomi design
Idealised dimensions (lower front, raised rear) and allnew tight-fitting bodywork capture the essence of a crouching predator ready to pounce. The lean, muscular styling hints at the Z1000’s more direct, sporty street riding performance.

1,043 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-line Four
Powerful engine pulls strongly from all rpm and does not let up before the redline. Adding to rider exhilaration, the engine delivers superb response, a strong mid-range hit and an intoxicating intake howl. More direct response thanks to new engine settings and shorter gearing adds to the Z1000’s sporty street riding potential.

Aluminium Twin-tube Frame
The highly rigid aluminium frame features a high degree of mass centralisation, creating a balance between sharp turning and firm handling. Aluminium twin-tube frame design features frame beams that go over engine, allowing a narrow construction between the rider’s knees. Lightweight and highly rigid, the frame uses the engine as a stressed member. The frame offers a firm, planted feeling, good stability and light, nimble turning.

Intoxicating Intake Howl
Designed specifically so that acceleration could be enjoyed aurally as well as physically, the carefully crafted auditory note of the intake is a key component of the street riding exhilaration offered by the Z1000

SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork – Big Piston)
The more direct handling of the new Z1000 can be largely attributed to its new suspension. The new SFFBP achieves both comfort and sport potential ideal for street riding. Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, the new fork features springs on both sides, with preload adjustability in the left tube and damping duties in the right tube.
