Z1000SX Tourer

RiDE (UK) - - Group Ride -

The third ver­sion of the Z1000SX con­tin­ues to build on the bike’s vast pop­u­lar­ity. It still uses the same 1043cc mo­tor and twin-spar frame that the bike has had since 2011 but for this year, Kawasaki spruced it up with a con­sid­er­able cos­metic over­haul and smarter rider aids. It now has LED head­lights, a larger screen and a wider fair­ing, while its ABS and trac­tion con­trol use lean-an­gle in­for­ma­tion sup­plied by an IMU. The reg­u­lar SX costs £10,139 while this Tourer ver­sion (with its 28-litre hard pan­niers, in­ner bags and a GPS bracket) is £600 more.
