The Z series of Kawasaki street-fighters has a strong legacy of more than four decades. Z1000 is not just another naked street fighter by Kawasaki Motors, given its new age design and specifications. It is a four-cylinder high performance motorcycle in the street-fighter segment, exemplifying unparalleled power and impeccable naked design. The Z1000 is an evolution of the dynamic super-naked bike series by Kawasaki engineers, who were determined to take the overall riding impact to the next level. The new-engine and chassis settings are crafted seamlessly to deliver a stiffer, more direct ride feel, which will certainly appeal to experienced bike riders. There is a significant transformation in this model, both in terms of design as well as riding experience. With these features Z1000 is touted as being India’s most advanced super-naked bike currently available.

The well balanced platform benefits from new integrated panniers, the flagship-level technology 3-mode KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control) and customizable power modes. These innovative features add to the Ninja 1000’s unrivaled all-round performance. The bike also offers an upright seating position, large fuel tank, and adjustable windscreen among its features, as well as a transmission exclusively geared for street-riding.

In the steady super-bikes market of India, India Kawasaki Motors’ initial target for sales is 100 units per model per year. India Kawasaki Motors will expand its business territory in a phase-wise manner. With its focus on Maharashtra and NCR; the expansion will follow in the rest of the country.
