The sculpted bodywork is carefully crafted to bring the aggressive Z design to the next level; the Super-Naked. Kawasaki engineers were also determined to further enhance the riding impact offered by the dynamic Super-Naked. The engine and chassis settings deliver a stiffer, more direct ride feel sure to please experienced riders.
This significant step forward, in both looks and feel, transforms the Z1000 into the market’s most radical Supernaked. Its appearance and performance can be expressed by the word sugomi - imposing and inspiring awe.
Condensed, dynamic form. Intense Glare.
A key visual component is the headlamp cowl which was positioned as low as possible, extending the line running down from the top of the tank to create the image of a crouching predator’s muscular shoulders and dropped head.
The condensed, dynamic form is reinforced by all-new bodywork that fits much closer to the engine and frame. As before mass is concentrated at the front, with the light tail cowl a mere wisp, as if drawn with the flick of a pen.
