2014 Kawasaki Z1000 ABS SE Review

2014 Kawasaki Z1000 ABS SE

The Z1000 was conceived in complete design freedom for a completely unique experience. Each part of the Z1000 was meticulously designed with a dual role in mind: individual functionality and realization of a condensed mass-forward image for a truly unique riding experience.

CALL OF THE WILD

Sculpted bodywork brings the aggressive and unique Sugomi inspired Z design to the next level, boldly highlighting brutal functionality. Enhancing the riding impact - along with the new engine and chassis settings delivering a stiffer, more direct ride transforming the Z1000 into the market’s most radical Supernaked - is a Special Edition version set to create the ultimate Z style statement.

The "it" factor is hard to describe, but you always know it when you see it. Likewise, the new 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 has a hard-to-define "streetfighter" style that is impactful enough to ensure everyone knows they're seeing something special. In a significant departure from the concealing bodywork of its sportbike predecessor, the new Z1000 strips-off unnecessary covers and bodywork to expose the superior functionality of its parts.

The Kawasaki Z design language has been elevated to a higher level with the new Z1000's "Sugomi" styling. From its seductively sculpted shapes invoking a crouching predator and painstaking details like its special "Z" logo ignition keys, machined aluminum steering stem bolt, and intricately textured "Z" motif seat cover, to the tighter tolerances of its high-quality components and bodywork, the dramatic result has a very special feel that helps set the stage for the excitement to follow!

For 2014, Kawasaki engineers concentrated on making the Z1000 more potent and capable than ever. Its extremely exciting inline-four produces the sort of power that launches you away from stops and out of corners in a way lesser powerplants simply can't hope to match. The Z1000 engine produces strong, instant-on thrust that's capable of embarrassing many hardcore sportbikes.

Z1000's 1,043cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, 16-valve engine features revised intake cams that boost its low-to-midrange torque-where most street bikes spend their time. When the road opens up, this stylish streetfighter can better stretch its legs thanks to additional airbox vents and new cylinder connecting passageways that help strengthen mid-to-high RPM performance by improving breathing and reducing the pumping losses associated with displacing air inside the crankcase. The more pronounced growl of the intake at low-RPM and its intoxicating howl at full-song will put a smile on even the most jaded rider's face. This engine's responsive power allows it to excel at almost any street-going activity, be it playing around town, sport riding, or dispatching miles on the open road.
Four 38mm Keihin downdraft throttle bodies inject an ideal mix of fuel and air into each combustion chamber with help from an advanced ECU that's been re-tuned to provide a livelier engine feel. An updated cool air intake system routes fresh air to the airbox via extra ducts at the front of the bike, and a new, non-woven air filter element provides better flow at high-RPM, while four equal-length velocity stacks help provide snappier throttle response to further increase the engine's fun factor. Digital Timing Advance contributes to the increased low- and mid-range power, while spark plug-mounted ignition coils help ensure perfect timing for each cylinder. It's a perfect engine for a road-going sportbike - aggressive, powerful, flexible, and blessed with the legendary reliability associated with Kawasaki sportbikes.

Shorter overall gearing complements the more responsive engine to deliver astounding thrust at the rider's command. However, a new, slightly taller 6th gear helps maintain reasonable RPM at highway speeds so comfort and economy don't suffer when covering miles on a long ride.

A beautifully styled 4-into-2-pre-chamber-into-2 exhaust offers a pleasing growl that is well-matched to the more-aggressive tone of the Z1000's intake system. A butterfly valve in the right-side muffler not only helps reduce noise, but also tunes exhaust back-pressure waves to help enhance low-rpm engine response.

The Z1000 features an advanced aluminum frame similar in design to the Ninja® ZX™-10R superbike's. The lightweight assembly curves over the engine, cradling it from above and bolting solidly to it in three places, with a rubber-backed fourth mount provided for added vibration isolation and torsional rigidity. This design allowed engineers to keep the bike's waist narrow for superb rider interface and maximum comfort and control. The main frame and swingarm pivot pieces are cast as a single unit, with welds eliminated wherever possible for seamless aesthetics. Its new sub-frame tapers to a very shallow cross-section at the rear, allowing the bodywork to take-on an aggressive minimalist profile.

The wheels, brakes and suspension bits that allow this bike to move so gracefully and swiftly are truly state-of-the-art. Suspension is handled by a new fully adjustable 41mm inverted SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork - Big Piston) fork up front and a preload- and rebound-adjustable horizontal back-link shock in the rear. The single-shock system features a damper mounted nearly horizontally above the swingarm for optimal mass centralization and heat resistance. The gas/oil shock offers superb wheel control whether you're hammering along deserted backroads or prowling across pothole-infested city streets.

Great looking new one-piece "monobloc" radial-mount front brake calipers offer world-class power and feel. The ABS equipped disc brake system - 310mm petal-type front rotors squeezed by those ultra-rigid radially mounted "monobloc" calipers, is controlled by an equally race-spec radial pump master cylinder. The new, monobloc front calipers are machined from a single piece of aluminum delivering both increased caliper stiffness and reduced weight. Riders will love the responsive braking power and improved feel at the lever. A 250mm petal-type rotor and single-piston caliper provide good rear brake feel at the pedal for maximum finesse during aggressive riding. The power and feel of the brakes at both ends is amazing, providing supreme confidence when slowing the bike down from speed. The Z1000's standard anti-lock brake system (ABS) promotes additional rider confidence when riding in slippery situations.

The wheels working with those brakes - lightweight six-spoke supersport-style units - are also the latest in lightweight production technology. They not only reduce unsprung mass, which allows the suspension to function optimally, but also carry the latest in radial tire technology. The result is superb grip, precise handling and reasonably long tread life.

The Z1000's sculpted styling is easily its most stunning aspect. The thin, compact headlight housing was positioned as low as possible, extending the line that starts from the top of the tank. The new reflector-less LED headlight design is a first for Kawasaki. It uses four LEDs that enable the housing to be shaped in a way that contributes to the more intense glare of the Z1000's new face. All four long-life, low-energy LED bulbs: two low-beam (center), two high-beam (outside) illuminate when the high-beams are on, and a separate LED position lamp is located on the instrument cover. Slim, futuristic looking radiator shrouds partially surround the Z1000's powerful engine, and a new under-cowl further contributes to the aggressive image. The new slender tailsection bodywork is more compact than the previous Z1000 models, further contributing to the bike's crouched-forward appearance. The compact passenger pad was designed to integrate with the rider's seat and gives the appearance of a solo-seat cover, adding to the sporty look of the new more-compact tail section. A new LED taillight design also adds a futuristic touch to the bike's rear.

In keeping with its radical looks, the Z1000 offers a highly effective riding position. The wide, large-diameter aluminum handlebars offer great leverage for aggressive maneuvers, and the knurled metal footpegs grip the rider's boots to provide a direct-connection to the chassis. It all adds-up to the perfect cockpit for maximum agility without sacrificing real world comfort.

As a package, the Z1000's engine and chassis are tuned to act more like European "streetfighter" models in both looks and feel. This innovative bike marks a significant step forward, providing an overall experience that is very different from other Japanese motorcycles, a quicker, more direct feel that is sure to please experienced riders.

2014 Kawasaki Z1000 ABS SE Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Cool Air system

With the airbox nestled between the frame beams, intake air can be affected by engine heat.
The Cool Air system routes cool air to the airbox from ducts at the front of the side fairings, minimising performance loss due to heated intake air. This should not be confused with Ram Air, where force-fed air becomes pressurised in the airbox.

Intoxicating Intake Howl

Designed specifically so that acceleration could be enjoyed aurally as well as physically, the carefully crafted auditory note of the intake is a key component of the street riding exhilaration offered by the Z1000.


Separate Function Fork - Big Piston (SFF-BP)

The more direct handling of the new Z1000 can be largely attributed to its new suspension. The new SFF-BP achieves both comfort and sport potential ideal for street riding.
potential ideal for street riding.
Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, the new fork features springs on both sides, with preload adjustability in the left tube and damping duties in the right tube.


Radial-mount monobloc calipers

High-performance brake package includes triple petal discs, radial-mount monobloc calipers and radial-pump front brake master cylinder. The new monobloc calipers and new brake pad material contribute to a stronger initial bite, superb brake feeling and formidable stopping power. Models with ABS also available.


1,043 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-line Four

Powerful engine pulls strongly from all rpm and does not let up before the redline. Adding to rider exhilaration, the engine delivers superb response, a strong mid-range hit and an intoxicating intake howl. More direct response thanks to new engine settings and shorter gearing adds to the Z1000’s sporty street riding potential.


Aluminium fat bar

Ideally suited to the Supernaked character, the wide-set fat bar facilitates rider control.The wide aluminium fat bar features a brushed finish and a black alumite1 coating.


Aluminium twin-tube frame

The highly rigid aluminium frame features a high degree of mass centralisation, creating a balance between sharp turning and firm handling.
Lightweight and highly rigid, the frame uses the engine as a stressed member. The frame offers a firm, planted feeling, good stability and light, nimble turning.
The frame is a 5-piece cast aluminium construction, consisting of steering stem, left and right main frames, and two cross pieces. The two main frame components have open C-shaped cross sections and were die-cast to ensure a smooth surface finish.

 

Larger-volume fuel tank

New fuel tank design increases fuel capacity to 17 litres, offering a greater touring range.


LED headlamp

The thin, compact headlamp cowl was positioned as low as possible, extending the line that starts from the top of the tank.
This is first time for Kawasaki to use the reflector-less LED headlamp design. Using LED lamps allows the design to be thin, the shape contributing to the more intense glare of the new Z1000’s face, and the reflector-less design further enhances its predatory appearance.
There are four long-life, low-energy LED bulbs: two low-beam (centre), two high-beam (outside). All four bulbs light up when the high-beams are on. A separate LED position lamp is located on the meter cover

Instrumentation

The Z1000’s compact instrument cluster is mounted directly to the handlebar, which added to design freedom and helped realise the compact headlamp cowl. Its low position creates an unobstructed view of the road ahead. The futuristic design of the LED tachometer and LCD screen reflects the sport potential of the new Z.


Mass Centralisation

The exhaust system (with large pre-chamber and short silencers), Horizontal Back-link rear suspension and the use of downdraft throttle bodies are the greatest contributors to mass centralisation. The Horizontal Back-link rear suspension arrangement frees up space taken up by the Uni-Trak suspension lower linkage, enabling a larger pre-chamber, which in turn allows the use of shorter mufflers and contributes to mass centralisation.
The lightweight aluminium rear frame also contributes.
The result is light, sharp handling.

 

Die-cast Mirrors

New mirrors have a sharper design that contributes to the aggressive image. Die-cast mirror stays contribute to a less plastic, higher quality feel of the cockpit.


Idealised Riding Position

An idealised 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.


Pre-chamber and short silencers

Using an under-engine pre-chamber enables smaller-volume silencers, contributing to both mass centralisation and a more concentrated styling. New silencer end-cap design adds to sporty looks.


Sugomi Design

The Japanese word sugomi describes the intense aura or energy given off by a person or object of greatness and felt by the viewer. Someone, or something, possessing sugomi inspires awe, leaves an indelible impression, is daunting in stature or ability, and commands respect. In the new Z1000, sugomi is evident both in its fiercely intense design and the exhilarating performance it delivers, radiating as a palpable energy.
Idealised dimensions (lower front, raised rear) and all-new tight-fitting bodywork capture the essence of a predator crouched and ready to pounce. The lean, muscular styling hints at the Z1000’s more direct, sporty street riding performance

LED taillight

New LED taillight design adds a futuristic touch to the bike’s rear


Downdraft throttle bodies

In addition to contributing to performance, downdraft throttle bodies contribute to overall mass centralisation. Revised intake funnel length contributes to a stronger mid-range response.


Lightweight wheels

Supersport-style wheels are approximately 1.5 kg lighter, reducing unsprung weight and contributing to lighter handling.


Economical Riding Indicator

Learn more about this technology The Economical Riding Indicator is a mark appearing on the instrument panel to indicate favourable fuel consumption, encouraging fuel efficient riding.


Dual Throttle Valves

Learn more about this technology Dual Throttle Valves offer increased power and greater ease of use care of a second set of ECU-controlled throttle valves.


Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension

Learn more about this technology Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension arranges its shock unit horizontally, greatly contributing to efficient use of space and mass centralisation.


ABS (Anti-lock Brake System)

Learn more about this technology ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) ensures stable braking performance by preventing wheel lock during braking.
