2004 Kawasaki Z1000 Review

2004 Kawasaki Z1000

Like an ancient Roman gladiator stepping into the Coliseum to do battle, the Z1000 Super Naked Bike returns to the 2004 Kawasaki lineup with minimal body work and hardware that expresses a very clear purpose.

Digital fuel injection utilizing 38mm throttle bodies and sub-throttle valves promote smooth, responsive engine operation with less fuel consumption. The high-speed 32-bit digital ignition provides precise engine management and enhances the fuel injection system.

Radical in appearance and designed to function as a pure sport bike, the Z1000 backs its aggressive style with an in-line-four, DOHC 16-valve engine, which produces tractable power for hard acceleration in any rpm range. The lightweight, all-aluminum cylinder block, with chrome composite plated lining for wear resistance and superior heat dispersion are features borrowed from the Kawasaki Ninja sportbike line.
