What Is It?

The Kawasaki Z1000 is the replacement for the Z900/Z1 and is powered by a bored out air-cooled 1,015 cc inline four engine, producing 85 bhp at 8,000 rpm and maximum torque at 6,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame
  • Dual 296 mm discs up front with single piston calipers
  • 290 mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • 36 mm fork with 127 mm travel
  • Dual rear shocks with 5-level pre-load adjustment and 80 mm travel
  • Four 26 mm Mikuni VM26 carbs
  • 4->2 exhaust system
  • Electric and kick starter
  • 5 speed gearbox

Compared to the Z900 the most obvious visual change is the iconic 4->4 exhaust system changing to a 4->2 configuration, the rear drum brake being replaced by a disc, dual discs at the front and shaft drive available as an option.

The 19" 7-spoke front wheel takes a 3.25V tyre and the rear 18" a 4.00V.

Accessories included a fairing, panniers and sissy bar / pillion backrest.

Colours: Black, blue, red, green
