Spied! Kawasaki is working on updated Ninja 1000


The web-crawlers over at Motorcycle.com have once again dug up evidence of a new motorcycle, thanks to the bureaucrats at the California Air Resource Board.

CARB documents show Kawasaki is bringing engine changes to the Ninja 1000 for 2020. The paperwork doesn’t say much else—it tips a new Kawasaki engine, with updated emissions, but the same 1043 cc displacement. Of course, this is all in the name of Euro5 compliance!

We’re sure to get more details of the Ninja 1000 updates in the coming days, quite possibly at next week’s Tokyo Motor Show.
