Italian website omnimoto.it has published images and information of a new Kawasaki model, the Z1000SX.
The Z1000SX offers everyday ergonomics in sporty, fully faired bodywork, and is based on the current Z1000. Its 1,043 cc inline four, introduced last year in the Z1000, claims 136 hp.
Running gear includes a fully adjustable 41 mm inverted fork and a horizontally mounted single rear shock adjustable for rebound damping and preload. Four-piston radial calipers squeeze 300 mm front discs.
The riding position is nearly identical to the Z1000, the only notable difference being a 10 mm narrower handlebar. The fairing features a three-position windscreen, adjustable manually over a 50-mm range.
No news yet if it will come to Canada but we will keep you posted.
