What are the 2014 Kawasaki Z1000SX Improvements?

Kawasaki have just released the details of several new models for 2014, the first being the Kawasaki Z1000SX.

Since introducing the Z1000SX to the Kawasaki Range in 2011, it has gained a huge following and has been the UK’s No1 selling Kawasaki each year since.   Given this success, how do you improve it, well Kawasaki have added a raft of changes so the NEW 2014 Z1000SX is no facelift update but in fact a full overhaul.

Here’s a list of the improvements……take a deep breath………..

  • Greater Power and Torque giving even sharper response in the important mid-range whilst building on the already impressive top end rush. 

  • Tokico radial-mount monobloc calipers (first time ever on a Kawasaki) offer enhanced feel and controllability with firmer initial touch.

  • A new ABS unit allows more precise control of brake fluid pressure, and the addition of a fluid pressure sensor enables the ABS unit to help suppress rear lift under braking.

  • Enhanced intake note adds to riding exhilaration.

  • More direct response to rider input delivers quicker handling for added riding excitement. 

  • Perfectly integrated accessory panniers can each hold a full-face helmet and fit so neatly they give the bike an overall width reduction of 70mm.  

  • Remote rear preload adjuster – for simple changes to suit pillion or laden pannier riding.  

  • Taller 6th gear ratio for improved long distance comfort.  

  • Seat construction aiding all day rider and pillion comfort.  

  • Mirror housings giving improved rear visibility – also wider overall.  

  • Kawasaki’s latest traction control: 3-mode KTRC – as fitted to the flagship Kawasaki ZZR1400.  

  • Power Mode selection: Full and Low Power. 

  • Improved Instrumentation - New functions include KTRC, Power Mode, Economical Riding Indicator, remaining range, current and average fuel consumption, and coolant temperature.  

The first new Z1000SXs are expected to be with Kawasaki dealers in October with prices to be confirmed nearer the time for the standard, ABS and Touring versions.
