Kawasaki Z1000SX 2017

The Power To Move You - Moved On

It is always a daunting task to upgrade what is continually your best selling motorcycle. So what better way to improved this slick 1000cc 4 cylinder motorcycle than to ask for the opinion of the riders of the outgoing Kawasaki Z1000SX. The top points raised were:

More rider protection - A larger bubble screen that is still 3 way adjustable at the press of a lever.

Improved comfort - Both rider and pillion seat have been improved dramatically and for 2017 the Z1000SX has had it's suspension re-tuned.

A factory fitted gear indicator - Now installed within the clocks.

Better lights - Headlights are now LED offering vastly improved night vision and improving the awareness of the other road users.

Luggage ready from the box - It is no longer necessary to book your bike in for the luggage mounting system to be fitted when adding panniers. The standard bike now comes from the factory luggage ready.

Kawasaki did not stop there, the new Z1000SX has with the use of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) improved traction control, ABS and engine mapping taking the forces produced on cornering, slowing and accelerating into account. The result is that transitions from braking to accelerating (and vice-versa) are much smoother ensuring that the bike maintains the best levels of traction throughout.

The braking system on this new Z1000SX is taken from the mighty H2 and ZX10R. Utilising the latest in Bosch ABS technology it provides a multi level control of the ABS delivering just the right amount of braking at just the right time - every time.

The sharp restyling of the nose cone and subtle changes to the livery have connected the Z1000SX more closely to the Ninja Supersport range. An already great bike has been made even better.

Warranty Plus

Kawasaki warrants products with extended warranty to be free of manufacturing defects for an additional 24 months from the expiry date of the original manufacturer's warranty. The following products can be covered for private use* only:

Street-legal Motorcycles**

* Private use - a private user is defined as "any person who is acting for purposes which are not related to his trade, business or profession".

** Street-legal Motorcycles - only models sold as street legal by Kawasaki Motors UK may be covered.

Warranty Terms and Conditions

If, within the extended warranty period, a failure occurs which is determined by Kawasaki to be caused by a manufacturing defect, Kawasaki will, at its discretion, arrange for the repair or replacement of the necessary parts at no cost to the customer. This can be carried out by any authorised Kawasaki Dealer. However, it is recommended that repairs and servicing are done by the original selling dealer who has a full history and knowledge of each product they have sold.

Note the following terms used throughout this document:

  • 'Kawasaki' = Kawasaki Motors Europe N.V.
  • 'Dealer' = Official Kawasaki dealer authorised for the relevant product group.

This warranty contains obligations and exclusions solely on the part of Kawasaki Motors Europe N.V. and not on the part of any dealer.

Nothing in this document shall be construed as an agency between Kawasaki and any of its authorised dealers or their staff.

Under current EU Consumer Law, customers have certain statutory rights contained within legislation governing the sale of goods to consumers (private users). This warranty does not in any way detract from or affect the statutory rights of the customer.

Please note:

  • This warranty is only available for and only applies to those products officially imported into the European Union (the EU) by Kawasaki Motors Europe N.V. and sold within the EU by an authorised Kawasaki dealer.
  • This warranty is only valid within European countries, which have official Kawasaki authorised representation for the product(s) concerned.

Warranty Exclusions

Kawasaki will not accept responsibility if, in its sole opinion, the part or parts require repair or replacement as a direct result of:

a) Alteration from standard specification in a manner, which affects the performance, durability or safety of the product or any of its component parts or genuine Kawasaki accessories, e.g.:

  1. The fitting of non-genuine Kawasaki parts or accessories, unless these are recommended or approved in writing by Kawasaki;
  2. Modifications or adjustments not recommended or approved in writing by Kawasaki.

b) The use of lubricating oils, fuel or other fluids (including cleaning materials) which are not in accordance with the recommendations contained in the owner's manual.

c) Improper uses, improper repair (this includes fitting of non-genuine or 'pattern' parts), accidental or fire damage and contamination by or submergence in water.

d) Deterioration due to normal wear and tear in service. The warranty does not cover routine service adjustment or normal replacement of service items (such as oils, fluids, spark plugs and filters), or wear and tear items (such as batteries, brake and clutch friction materials, drive chains or belts and tyres, cables and bearings). However, such items are covered if replacement is required as a direct result of a manufacturing or material defect.

e) Any competitive racing or related use.

f) Any damage or consequential damage caused by accident or by owner's or operator's neglect or abuse.

g) Improper storage or deterioration from the elements.

The warranty may not apply if:

i) The periodic maintenance and servicing is not carried out by an authorised Kawasaki dealer at the appropriate intervals specified in the relevant owner's manual. Evidence of this servicing must be produced, if requested, at the time of any warranty claim. It is the owner's responsibility to ensure the service record book is kept up to date by the servicing dealer. It is advisable also to keep copies of any service or repair invoices in case the book is lost.

ii) Any problem experienced is not reported to a Kawasaki Dealer within a reasonable time or the motorcycle is not properly inspected by that dealer. The owner should take all possible steps to prevent further damage as soon as any problem is apparent. Any consequential damage that is caused by the continued use of the product after a problem has been identified may not be covered by this warranty.

The warranty covers private use only. The warranty will not apply if the unit is used for any business or commercial purpose.

The following items are not covered:

  • Cables
  • Batteries

Kawasaki Sports Touring Brochure

Exhilarating In-line Four Engine

Powerful 1,043 cm3 liquidcooled, 4-stroke In-line Four engine pulls strongly from all rpm and does not let up before the redline. Adding to rider exhilaration, the engine delivers superb response, a strong mid-range hit and an intoxicating intake howl. Revised engine settings offer even smoother power delivery, facilitating control and contributing to rider comfort and confidence. 

The Cool Air system routes cool air to the airbox from ducts at the front of the side fairings, minimising performance loss due to heated intake air. 

Wind Protection

A new, taller double-bubble windshield also contributes to the increased wind protection. As before, the windshield is adjustable by hand (without tools), with three available positions to suit rider preference 

Pannier System

The mounting system for the accessory panniers allows the panniers to be attached and removed very simply, contributing to increased convenience. Seamlessly integrating the panniers with the rear of the bike, the clean-mount system positions the panniers close to the bike centreline, and, thanks to its clean clutter-free design, ensures the rear of the bike still looks good with the panniers removed. 

Instrumentation

All-new sophisticated instrument design features a large analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps on one side, and a gear position indicator and multi-function LCD screen on the other. 

LED Headlights

Contributing to the Z1000SX’s sharper looks, dual LED headlamps (each featuring low and high beams, as well as a LED position lamp) offer significantly increased brightness, casting their light wider and farther forward. 

Suspension

The Z1000SX’s suspension settings allow the bike to respond quickly to rider input while soaking up bumps and ruts. ø41 mm inverted front fork features stepless compression and rebound damping and spring preload adjustability. 

The rear shock features rebound and preload adjustability, with a remote preload adjuster facilitating setting changes to suit tandem riding, luggage or rider preference.

Comfortable Ergonomics

The Z1000SX’s relaxed riding position was designed to accommodate everything from city riding to touring to sport riding. This blend of comfort and control allows the rider to enjoy a variety of riding situations.
Both rider and passenger seats deliver increased comfort. The redesigned rider seat has a wider seat area, while the passenger seat is longer (+25 mm), with 3 mm thicker urethane padding and a design that swells at the front. 

Kawasaki Cornering Management Function

Using the latest evolution of this advanced modelling software and feedback from a compact Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), KCMF monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner – from entry, through the apex, to corner exit – modulating brake force and engine power to facilitate smooth transition from acceleration to braking and back again, and to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner. 

Kawasaki Traction Control

Three modes cover a wide range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence. The IMU-enhanced feedback allows even more precise management than on the previous model. 

Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-Lock Brake System

Kawasaki’s supersportgrade high-precision brake management system is standard equipment on the 2017 Z1000SX. This is the same base system used on the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-10R, with programming and settings revised to suit the performance parameters of the Z1000SX.
