New Kawasaki 2017 Z1000 for sale in Cairns

Z1000 - The Radical Super-Naked

The sculpted bodywork is carefully crafted to bring the aggressive Z design to the next level; the Super-Naked. Kawasaki engineers were also determined to further enhance the riding impact offered by the dynamic Super-Naked. The engine and chassis settings deliver a stiffer, more direct ride feel sure to please experienced riders. Updated for Euro 4 with addional features and revised engine and chassis settings to make the Z1000 the Supernaked leader. This significant step forward, in both looks and feel, transforms the Z1000 into the market's most radical Supernaked. Its appearance and performance can be expressed by the word sugomi - imposing and inspiring awe.

2017 Z1000 Sugomi Design

Sugomi Design

Condensed, dynamic form. Intense Glare.

A key visual component is the headlamp cowl which was positioned as low as possible, extending the line running down from the top of the tank to create the image of a crouching predator’s muscular shoulders and dropped head.

The condensed, dynamic form is reinforced by all-new bodywork that fits much closer to the engine and frame. As before mass is concentrated at the front, with the light tail cowl a mere wisp, as if drawn with the flick of a pen.

2017 Z1000 Bodywork


The bodywork of the Z1000 creates a lean image it compared to its predecessor. The design trims bulk and unnecessary design flourishes to highlight the functionality of the bike’s parts.

The bodywork is fit to the bike with much tighter tolerances – space between the bodywork and engine/frame is minimised – adding to the high quality image.

2017 Z1000 Engine


Revised ECU settings contribute to an even smoother power delivery, facilitating control and contributing to rider comfort and confidence, and deliver cleaner emissions, ensuring Euro 4 regulations are cleared. Evaporator further contributes to cleaner emissions.

Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve 1,043 cm3 In-line Four offers impressive power (104.5 kW (142 PS) and strong torque.

2017 Z1000 Mass Centralised

Mass Centralised

The exhaust system, horizontal back-link rear suspension and the use of downdraft throttle bodies are the greatest contributors to mass centralisation. The horizontal back-link rear suspension arrangement frees up space taken up by the Uni-Trak suspension lower linkage, enabling a larger pre-chamber and allows the use of shorter mufflers to contribute to mass centralisation.
