2017 Ninja 1000 Sporty Instrument panel

Sporty Instrument panel

All-new instrument layout panel 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. Gear position indicator increases shifting precision and confidence, while also lending to the Ninja 1000's sporty image. Complementing a new shift-up indicator lamp, the tachometer's needle changes colour (from white to pink to red) to indicate the rider-selectable shift-up timing. In addition to the digital speedometer and gear position indicator, display functions include: odometer, dual trip meters, remaining range, current and average fuel consumption, external temperature, coolant temperature, clock and the Economical Riding Indicator.

2017 Ninja 1000 Cool Air System

Cool Air System

With the airbox nestled between the frame beams, intake air can be affected by engine heat. 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. This should not be confused with Ram Air, where force-fed air becomes pressurised in the airbox.
