Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Kawasaki's been making big four-cylinder naked bikes for decades now. The Z1000 goes all the way back to the original 900 cc Z1, which set the world on its ear back in 1972. Its futuristic styling is polarizing, but it's different, bold, and has a very torquey engine.
