Kawasaki Z1000SX

See the latest Kawasaki Z1000SX Finance Offers

Kawasaki have for 2014 updated the already very popular Z1000 SX and Z1000 SX Tourer range.

The most noticeable change is the new, bespoke designed colour-coded optional pannier system – with each of the 28L panniers able to hold a full-face helmet. Designed to hug the centre line of the machine.

Featuring a new mounting system with no frames which ensures the machine looks as good with the panniers in place as when naked, another advantage is the convenience of the “one key” system with both ignition and luggage operated by the same key.


The latest Z1000 SX range also benefits from a whole host of new technology including Kawasaki’s highly praised KTRC electronic traction control system as used on the flagship Kawasaki ZZR 1400 and ZX10R models. With three traction modes to choose from, including those covering sports riding or even low grip situations, the traction control is further complemented by two rider selectable power modes.

Kawasaki have also updated the engine itself with a variety of changes and upgrades which focus on more instant and responsive power delivery that greatly benefit the rider. Both power and torque are improved throughout the rev range.

The 2014 Kawasaki Z1000SX also benefits from updates at both ends with revised settings for the 41mm front forks and a radial-mount master cylinder operating new Tokico monobloc callipers with the option of ABS that offer excellent stopping power and feel.

The shock absorber now features an easily accessible remote adjuster allowing the rider to fine tune the rear suspension in seconds. Ideal for changing ride situations with the optional luggage.

A 3 way adjustable screen ensures that wind protection is optimised for all riders. The new fairing design ensuring that the heat from the engine is directed away from the rider.

All of these changes have made an already very good bike into a truly superb all round machine catering for every biking sutuation.

 

Kawasaki Z1000SX - "POWER TO MOVE YOU".

Who says that a machine capable of touring distances and offering comfort and practicality can't have style or razor sharp handling characteristics. The aggressive styling of the new Kawasaki Z1000SX has instantly set this bike apart from the pack. Once you have got to the Swiss Alps, you can now have fun riding through them.
