About Ninja 1000

The Kawasaki Ninja 1000 was always a sport touring motorcycle. Now, with the 2020 update it aims to offer even more comfort on long highway rides. To begin with, the rider and pillion seats have been redesigned for added comfort and support. Then there is the large, four-way adjustable windscreen which can be swapped for an even taller windscreen that Kawasaki is offering as an accessory.

Kawasaki has also upgraded the 2020 Ninja 1000’s electronics package with a cruise control system that now comes standard along with a traction control system and riding modes. It even sports a 10.9cm full-colour, TFT display that offers Bluetooth connectivity. The display can be paired to a smartphone via Kawasaki’s Rideology application.

The Ninja 1000 continues to be powered by a 1043cc, inline-four cylinder engine similar to the outgoing model. However, Kawasaki has retuned the motor to reduce emissions and running noise. As far as styling goes, the motorcycle is now even sharper and features LED lighting. It also gets a single-sided exhaust that replaces the dual-exhaust on the previous gen model.

While the bike will be available in international markets by early next year, we can expect it to arrive in India in the latter half of 2020.
