Kawasaki Ninja z1000

INTRODUCTION

The "it" factor is hard to describe, but you always know it when you see it. Likewise, the new 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 has a hard-to-define "streetfighter" style that is impactful enough to ensure everyone knows they're seeing something special. In a significant departure from the concealing bodywork of its sportbike predecessor, the new Z1000 strips-off unnecessary covers and bodywork to expose the superior functionality of its parts.
