THE LINE UP
There are three flavours of A16. Choose from…
Z1-r-esque variant with all aluminium fuel cell (under the angular dummy cover), Z1-R bikini fairing and boxy single seat. AC Sanctuary in Japan developed the chassis through racing, so this one won’t be shy of track work. Swingarm is a more basic item – if you could ever call it that – with no underbrace. Lower shock mounts are eccentric, for adjustable ride height.
More than a nod to the original Z900/1000 with its duck-arse rear end (note it’s a very neat single seat though), under-braced ’arm, gold finished rwu Öhlins forks, drop ’bars and ’70s style pinstriping.
The most faithful to the original Z look, with a twin seat and provision for a pillion, high ’bars and Zed type side panels. Looks amazing in the red/grey/black. Although this is most ‘street’ of the trio, it’s the one that comes with sportier usd forks.
