Z1000 is powered by a 1,043cc inline-four liquid-cooled engine that churns out 142bhp at 10,000rpm and a torque of 111Nm at 7,300 rpm. The motorcycle makers have revised the ECU settings, made changes to the camshaft timings, fitted a new air box and have connected the cylinders to reduce pumping losses. The Z1000 gets a big piston fork that offers lightweight and excellent wheel control and also gets one piece monobloc radial-mount front brake calipers that offers superior braking.
Idealised dimensions, the riding position sees the front lowered and the rear raised, creating a more aggressive posture. The more aggressive position matches the bike’s more direct throttle response and handling, putting riders in a position to fully capitalise on the Z1000’s sportier street riding potential.An all-new tight-fitting bodywork captures the essence of a crouching predator ready to pounce. The lean, muscular styling hints at the Z1000’s more direct, sporty street riding performance.
