CALL OF THE WILD.

2019 Kawasaki Z1000R ABS:

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.

Sculpted bodywork brings the aggressive and unique sugomi inspired Z design to the next level, stripping off all unnecessary flourishes to boldly highlight brutal functionality.

Enhancing the riding impact, the new engine and chassis settings deliver a stiffer, more direct ride transforming the Z1000 into the market’s most
radical Supernaked.

2019 Kawasaki Z1000R ABS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

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.

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.

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.

 

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

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Embossed seat material
Seat is embossed with “Z” mark further distinguishing the bike from the standard model.

 

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.

 

Öhlins Rear Suspension
Complementing the enhanced braking performance of the Brembo brakes, high-quality Öhlins rear suspension offers both increased ride comfort and the pride in ownership that comes from the knowledge that your machine is equipped with top-shelf components.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Brembo Brake Components
To bring the already formidable braking performance of the Z1000 to the next level, high-spec brake components like those found on the Ninja H2R were implemented. The Brembo components featured are the best available for a massproduction model. The highprecision operation delivers brake force linearly, contributing to superb controllability.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.
