We reported in detail when Japanese bike maker Kawasaki released the first teaser of the 2014 Kawasaki Z1000. The aforementioned teaser (check out the lead image) also revealed the release date of the 2014 Z1000. The new 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 would be revealed on November 5 at the fast approaching International Motorcycle Exhibition (EICMA), which will be held in Milan.
Now, Kawasaki has released the second teaser (seen above) of the upcoming 2014 Kawasaki Z1000.
The Kawasaki Z1000 was launched way back in 2003 and was thoroughly updated in 2010. This is when the bike’s 953cc engine was replaced by a fairly more potent 1,043cc unit. With this, max power figure rose from 123 bhp to 126 bhp and torque went up from 98.7Nm to 110Nm. With the advent of the 2014 Kawasaki Z1000, we expect these figures to become significantly better.
The usage of Japanese word “Sugomi” can be seen in both the above images. This word translates into dreadfulness/ghastliness/weirdness and has always been associated with Kawasaki’s Z series of motorcycles. All this means that the upcoming 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 could borrow plenty of design cues from the Kawasaki Z800 and the Z250 motorcycles.
Our sources have informed us that while the 2014 Z1000 will continue to sport the traditional aggressive dual-lamp headlight design, it would get projector lamps instead of a regular halogen setup. Also, the bike would get a rather rakish tail light.
We are eagerly awaiting to lay our eyes on the pics and details of the 2014 Kawasaki Z1000, Stay tuned to Motoroids for more dope on the upcoming Z1000.
