2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 Preview


Building on the success of its Z1000 semi-naked sportster, and series of mid-size street-going Ninjas, Kawasaki has announced a 2011 big-bore amalgamation called the Ninja 1000.

The fully-faired machine is essentially a Z1000 with Ninja bodywork. It will share the Z’s counterbalanced engine, six-speed transmission, nearly identical chassis geometry, and upright riding position.

Damnn, this looks better than the 2011 ZX10R.

As long as you get rid of that tail hanger and clear windscreen.

And with more displacement too. WTF

When we dyno’d the 2010 Z1000 engine – which on paper is identical – it returned 123.4 hp at 10,250 rpm, and 74.8 ft-lbs torque at 7750 rpm at the wheel.
From above link. Should be a fun bike.

Yeah, I read the article this time .
I had the chance to ride a buddy's Z1000 about a year ago.
Comfortable ride and was quick. Wheelie happy too.
But much more maneuverable than the ZX's.
Felt like I was sitting on a dirt bike.
