We reported on the Kawasaki Z1000SX last week and said we’d keep you informed on its availability in Canada.
The bike is coming here and in North America will be called the Ninja 1000.
Kawasaki has been busy releasing everyday motorcycles in the past few years, among them the Versys, the Ninja 650R, and more recently the Ninja 400R.
Based on the naked Z1000, this latest Ninja model will cater to riders with a preference for litre bikes, offering up 136 hp and 81 lb-ft of torque.
A couple of CMG testers have ridden the current Z1000 and praised its engine for its massive bottom-end torque, which should make the new Ninja 1000 a great long-distance sport-touring mount.
MSRP is $13,699. You can find more info on Kawasaki Canada’s website.
