Japanese motorcycle giant, Kawasaki, has launched the updated version of its one liter sports tourer, the Z1000SX. Unlike any other updates in recent times, the Z1000SX goes wild to be real monster while invading long rides.
The 2014 Z1000SX features a redesigned chassis, that is very updated from the front fork to the rear mudguard. The rear shock absorber is now adjustable via a switch given, which allows the rider to choose the best mode while having solo, duo, loaded or sports riding.
The new electronic driving aids including Kawasaki's traction control system (KTRC), which is comprised of three ways and two switchable power modes. Meanwhile, the engine, exhaust and airbox have been slightly refreshed to improve the performance of the bike.
The firm also offers colour-coded optional pannier system to inbox luggage. The panniers are 28 liters each and big enough to place a full-face helmet. The ABS is optional on the new set of Tokico monobloc radial mount front brake calipers with a remote adjuster.
At the same time, its engine, power and torque remain the same. The Z1000SX comes with a 1043cc, Liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-Line Four engine, which delivers a max power of 142 PS @ 10,000 rpm and a max torque of 111 Nm @ 7,300 rpm. Still, the firm hasn't disclosed the price tag of the machine.
The sports tourer gets updated on traction control system, chassis, and accessories.
