Kawasaki Z1000 Bike ReviewMSE Ratings

Kawasaki Z1000 Bike ReviewStart at the back. Nice shape to the rear section with it’s sharp angles, tidy no. plate holder, and a standard, colour coded tail tidy/under tray. Nice. The brake works well and the swing arm and chassis look good.

Editor Contributor's Review

The pillion seat doesn’t look at all comfy, and after being subjected to a very hard seat doesn’t bode well for future models! Maybe they will change something, or they need bedding in but I only managed 40 miles before I had to stop.

The handlebars felt too close and coupling it to the distance between seat and pegs and bars, the whole bike felt too small and cramped. A shorter rider might find it a completely different experience.

The upside down forks, fully adjustable, worked ok on the flat roads but were nervous on the bumpy bits , I left them as they came from the factory as I didn’t have time to set them up. The radial brakes on the front are excellent with 2 fingers and even better if you use all four.

The engine seemed a bit high rev biased to me, I was limited to the revs I could use but this bike will soon have you over the limit. It is light so you will easily loft the front wheel, the road holding is very good for a bike that is only 1445mil long.

Thanks again to Bowen Moto for the use of the bike.
