Carrying the great legacy

A true heavyweight performance.

From 2017 the new Kawasaki Z1000R has jumped straight to the front of this highly competitive class. The distinctive Z concept has been furthered still by Kawasaki’s Sugomi design.The Kawasaki Z1000R has many upgrades with game-changing effects. High performance Brembo M50 monobloc calipers are one of the most obvious additions to this stunning motorcycle. Radially mounted and matched to a Brembo radial pump master cylinder along with huge Brembo discs, deliver massive stopping power while also giving the rider great feedback. Another distinction of the high performance “R” model is the use of the highest quality Ohlins rear shock, giving the rider more feedback, grip and comfort.


Call of the wild.

Answer the call.

Sculpted bodywork brings the aggressive and unique sugomi inspired Z design to the next level, stripping off all unnecessary flourishes to boldly highlight brutal functionality. Enhancing the riding impact, the new engine and chassis settings deliver a stiffer, more direct ride transforming the Z1000R into the market’s most radical Supernaked.


Unmistakable stance

The embodiment of Sugomi philosophy. 

Put simply the Sugomi philosophy – The Sugomi approach is conceived to be experienced by the rider in terms of the whole Z1000R riding experience both visually and in respect of engine character and chassis response.The front end is characterised by the stunning plunging headlamp cowl with its narrow aspect ultra-bright LED headlight clear Kawasaki “Z” family heritage. Even more characteristic is the Z Stance, the low headlight, muscular stocky body with high tail, all reminiscent of a big cat, stalking its prey.


Master of all.

Perfect balance of usability and performance.

The latest Kawasaki Z1000 also features an uprated engine with more power, more torque and an even greater instant throttle response than ever before. Not only is there more power, but now the way the power is delivered is greatly improved. With revised ECU settings and camshaft timing plus oval connections between the header pipes and revisions such as connected cylinders for less pumping loss, the Z1000 now has extra low down torque but not lost any of its screaming top end power rush.




Instruments The Z1000’s compact instrument cluster is mounted directly to the handlebar, which added to design freedom and helped realise the compact headlamp cowl. Its low position creates an unobstructed view of the road ahead. The futuristic design of the LED tachometer and LCD screen reflects the sport potential of the new Z. including digital speedometer, fuel guage and gear indicator.
