2015 Kawasaki Z1000 ABS

The Kawasaki Z design language was elevated to a higher level with the Z1000’s “Sugomi” styling, which combines its sculpted shape – invoking a crouching predator – with painstaking details like its special “Z” ignition key, machined aluminum steering stem bolt and the intricate “Z” motif seat cover. This is wrapped in a new color scheme for 2015 that combines Golden Blazed Green with Metallic Spark Black to create a dramatic motorcycle that sets the stage for the excitement to follow.

The Kawasaki engineers concentrated on making the Z1000 sportbike more potent and capable. Its impressive inline-four produces power to launch you away from stoplights and out of corners in a way lesser powerplants simply cannot match. The Z1000 engine produces strong, instant thrust capable of embarrassing many hardcore sportbikes.

Key Features may include:

  • Uniquely aggressive “Sugomi” styling gives the Z1000 a distinct predatory look
  • 1,043cc inline-four with DFI® offers sharp response that enhance the impressive mid-range and top-end power
  • Showa Separate Function Fork
  • Big Piston (SFF-BP) front forks offer light weight, easy adjustability and excellent wheel control to cope with the high forces associated with aggressive riding
  • One-piece “monobloc” radial-mount front brake calipers offer superb braking power and control, along with a premium laser-etched Kawasaki logo and black alumite finish
  • Supersport-style six-spoke lightweight aluminum wheels contribute to the Z1000’s sporty image while reducing rotating inertia
  • Short final-drive gearing provides quick response and enhanced riding excitement, while a tall 6th gear helps maintain highway comfort
  • Analog + Digital instrument cluster includes a large tachometer and a digital display offering a wealth of information on current bike conditions and settings
  • Compact subframe design is slender and short
  • Upright “streetfighter” riding position provides excellent leverage on the controls for maximum maneuverability, coupled with a commanding view of the urban jungle
