The Kawasaki Z1000 always bore a familiar devilishness in its looks – even the 2013 model. Bulgarian custom outfit Vilner got their skilled hands on one and enveloped it with some striking elements, resulting in a different take on the big Z’s aggressiveness.
The naked, heavy-weight, street-fighter has been shrouded with a full fairing sculpted to coalesce itself with the rest of the Z’s ballsy styling. Shaded in a satin whiffed brownish hue, the full fairing also incorporates a couple of air intakes highlighted in blue, apart from a few exposed bolts (?).
Along with the full fairing, there’s also an extended front fairing styled in perfect sync with the twin lamps. The front indicators are all-new, compact units and have been re-positioned on the sharply re-styled front fender.
The alloy wheels are new as well, and looks like they’re built to kill, with blades and swords masquerading as spokes. Apart from the new satin finished brown shade all over the bike and new mirrors, the rear end and oily bits seem to have been untouched.
To match all the show, go for the 2013 Z1000 came from a 136bhp liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 1043cc inline-four-cylinder engine, cradled in a superbike-style aluminium twin spar frame, using the engine as a stressed member.
