2014 Kawasaki Z1000SX unveiled


The 2014 Kawasaki Z1000SX, with new panniers, traction control, revised suspension, updated brakes and... a louder intake howl while accelerating!

Kawasaki have “further refined” the Z1000SX sports-tourer for 2014, with new colour-coded panniers (each of which can hold a full-face helmet) that can be locked and unlocked with the same key that’s used to operate the ignition. Apart from the panniers, the 2014 Z1000SX also gets 3-mode KTRC traction control system, two rider selectable power modes, revised 41mm front fork, remote adjustable rear shock and updated brakes with a radial-mount master cylinder.

But what we like best about the new Z1000SX is the revised air box and air intake system, which Kawasaki claim results in a louder howl while accelerating. Yes, brother! “With such a wide appeal, the Z1000SX has already gained many fans from both supersports and touring backgrounds. With so many additional features for the coming season, we are sure it will retain its commanding position in the sports/touring market,” says Yasushi Kawakami, Managing Director of Kawasaki Motors Europe.
