The 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 was unveiled at the 2013 EICMA event in Milan, Italy. The 2014 Streetfighter gets many updates cosmetically as well as mechanically. The most obvious change to the Z1000 is that it gets a new headlight assembly which is an LED spec unit and is the first from any Japanese manufacturer. The 2014 Z1000 looks very mean and aggressive due to Kawasaki’s new ‘Sugomi’ styling.

The 2014 Z1000 is powered by a 1,043cc inline-four liquid-cooled engine that churns out 142bhp at 10,000rpm and a torque of 111Nm at 7,300 rpm. The motorcycle makers have revised the ECU settings, made changes to the camshaft timings, fitted a new air box and have connected the cylinders to reduce pumping losses. The Z1000 gets a big piston fork that offers lightweight and excellent wheel control and also gets one piece monobloc radial-mount front brake calipers that offers superior braking. It also gets a new analog plus digital instrument cluster including a large tachometer and a digital display that offers information on current bike conditions and settings.

The Kawasaki Z1000 has been launched at Rs 12.5 lakh ex-showroom (Pune and Delhi) and is available only in one colour - Golden Blazed Green.
