2014 Z1000

  1. What would be better is if they dropped the ZX10 motor in it with a gearing change, instead of just a minor update.

    Having said that it does look tough, and the previous model is a hoot to ride so this should be good fun also

  2. x2 kawasaki missed the mark big time with this one. its far heavier and with less power than all the new nakeds on the market.

    142hp and 220kg without ABS. too many pies.

    it would want to be a fair bit cheaper than the rest.

  3. I agree. It does look cool though

  4. It is a fair bit cheaper than the ktm. Outright power on paper is not the be all and end all. The low down punch the current z1000 has for street riding is awesome.
  5. Like the front on look but hate the side profile, its almost a faired bike rather than a naked.

    That new dash is HIDEOUS though! looks cheap as :(
