Kawasaki Z1000S

This model is based on the 2010 Kawasaki Z1000. There are two model versions offered: Standard or Touring. In the Touring version, there are color coded panniers and ABS.

The Kawasaki Z1000S has debuted at the Cologne bike show.

This motorcycle offers great comfort as well as a ride full of adrenalin. It is ideal for Swiss Alps ride.

The model is powered by a Liquid-cooled, 16 valves, DOHC, 1, 043 cm3 In-line engine. There are 6-spoke wheels and inverted front fork of 41 mms. Moreover, the linkage and shock unit are placed above the swingarm.

The front features petal brake discs of 300 mms with radial-mount calipers of 4 pistons. The suspension is distanced from the exhaust to avoid heat. A great stream of cool air is transferred from the fairing air ducts to the air box. Thus, the performance loss is brought to a low level.

A multi-functioned LCD screen and lengthy analogue tachometer is featured in the Sporty instrument panel.

The LED taillight design is extremely appealing to the eye. It is highly elegant with a special glow.

Kawasaki UK made possible this model to be tested in Spain. The testing has been performed both on road, as well as street.
