Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Z1000R
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Kawasaki has a reputation for building fast, nimble machines, and that rep comes from bikes like the Z1000R. Kawasaki dropped the standard Z1000 model and now only sells this bike, which has the same horsepower as the standard bike, but with better brakes and suspension and revised engine settings. Kawi now has several naked bikes, but this one is the machine if you want high power, but can't handle the expense of the H2 series.
