As already read by our dear readers in our recent article, the Japanese motorcycle maker Kawasaki had recently revealed the new 2014 model of its wildest naked machine Z1000 at the 2013 EICMA. After this, India Kawasaki Motors’ Pune showroom has already started taking bookings for the Z1000 which would be displayed at the Pune Showroom from December 25th. Customers are expected to get their delivery from January-2014.
The Z1000 is built based on the Sugomi Philosophy which was earlier seen in the Z800 making it more wild and aggressive in terms of styling. Kawasaki’s Z1000 features Kawasaki Traction Control, electronically controlled suspension system, dual front and single rear disc brakes, ABS, muscular fuel tank, full LED instrument cluster, dual side twin exhaust pipes and LED headlamps (combination of six ultra bright LED units, in which inner two are used for low beam and other four units for high beam).
Coming to the technical specifications, Z1000 is equipped with a powerful engine which produces a maximum power of 142 BHP @ 10000 RPM and a maximum torque of 111 Nm @ 7300 RPM. It also features Ride-By-Wire throttle technology, by which we can restrict the engine to work at two power modes 70% and 80%. It is expected to be priced closed to INR 18.5 lakhs (on-road Pune).
