Kawasaki Z1000SX 2017 Photos, Review, Specification and Price

It is always a daunting task to upgrade what is continually your best selling motorcycle. So what better way to improved this slick 1000cc 4 cylinder motorcycle than to ask for the opinion of the riders of the outgoing Kawasaki Z1000SX 2017 .

The top points raised were:

protection – A larger bubble screen that is still 3 way adjustable at the press of a lever.

Improved comfort – Both rider and pillion seat have been improved dramatically and for 2017 the Z1000SX has had it’s suspension re-tuned.
A factory fitted gear indicator – Now installed within the clocks.
Better lights – Headlights are now LED offering vastly improved night vision and improving the awareness of the other road users.
Luggage ready from the box – It is no longer necessary to book your bike in for the luggage mounting system to be fitted when adding panniers. The standard bike now comes from the factory luggage ready.
Kawasaki did not stop there, the new Z1000SX has with the use of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) improved traction control, ABS and engine mapping taking the forces produced on cornering, slowing and accelerating into account. The result is that transitions from braking to accelerating (and vice-versa) are much smoother ensuring that the bike maintains the best levels of traction throughout.
The braking system on this new Z1000SX is taken from the mighty H2 and ZX10R. Utilising the latest in Bosch ABS technology it provides a multi level control of the ABS delivering just the right amount of braking at just the right time – every time.
The sharp restyling of the nose cone and subtle changes to the livery have connected the Z1000SX more closely to the Ninja Supersport range. An already great bike has been made even better.
